Full bio

Already as a kid, Koos remember being intrigued by economics, but never thought of studying it as he had many other interests. He instead embarked on a career as sound engineer for movies in 2002 recording sound on set for feature films, TV-series and commercials.

Koos became interested in precious metals in 2009 after seeing Willem Middelkoopon Dutch television discussing his book about the global credit crisis. Koos proceeded to the bookstore the next day to buy Willem’s book. Koos passion for economics was immediately re-triggered reading the book and he shortly thereafter started to write blog articles from a perspective of Austrian economics.

In January 2013, Koos, became disabled and was no longer able to perform his regular job. Being housebound, he began researching the Chinese gold market extensively. Koos found that massive amounts of physical gold were being withdrawn from the vaults of the Shanghai Gold Exchange. Koos started a blog covering the Chinese gold development as no one else in the West covered this area with huge geopolitical implications for the world. Koos discovered how the redistribution of gold, and thus redistribution of economic power, from West to East was thoughtfully designed by the Chinese leadership and the Chinese central bank.
