Coup De Des is the home of the the thoughts and writings of me, Victor A. Schramm.
I graduated from the University of Oregon with a B.A. in Russian and East European Studies (emphasis on Russian History). I’ve lived a number of places, most recently Brooklyn, NYC, and presently Portland, OR.
My primary areas of interest are art, literature, philosophy, and economics. I write poetry and short stories, and those can be found at Still, I Sing: Poetry of Victor A. Schramm. Things that I post on this blog are my own essays and musings on all of these subjects, among others.
My professional life centers around Investment Advisement. As much as I honestly love investing, most of the writings you’ll find here regard theoretical Economics of greater breadth and focus than investing itself, as I find so often that discussions of investing program must be approached as a dialectic between investor and investment advisor. I suppose this highlights my bias towards Austrian Economics, Value Investing, and behavioral finance such as explored by Robert Shiller and the like.
I hope you enjoy my commentary and I’d like you to feel welcome to comment at any length on any topic. I enjoy discussion far more than I enjoy the sound of my own voice.
Welcome and thank you for taking the time to read,
Victor A. Schramm
