Ted Bauman joined Banyan Hill Publishing in 2013 and is editor of The Bauman Letter, Bauman Daily and Profit Switch. He lives in Atlanta, GA with his family.

Ted has spent his entire life helping people secure and keep their wealth … and their freedom and independence … starting with himself. Banyan Hill is a natural extension of his quest.

Born in Washington, D.C. and raised on Maryland’s Eastern Shore, Ted emigrated to South Africa as a young man in search of adventure. He graduated summa cum laude from the University of Cape Town with postgraduate degrees in economics, economic history and politics.

During his 25-year career in South Africa, Ted served a variety of executive roles in the nonprofit sector, primarily as a fund manager for low-cost housing projects. One effort he helped found, Slum Dwellers International, has gone on to help over 14 million people in 35 countries.

During the 2000s, Ted worked as a consultant, researching and writing extensively on finance, housing and urban planning issues for clients as diverse as the United Nations, the World Bank, the South African government and European grant-making agencies. In 2008, he returned to the U.S. where he served as Director of International Housing Programs for Habitat for Humanity International. He left in 2013 to work full-time as a researcher and writer.

Ted’s career has taken him all over the world. He has visited more than 80 countries in Africa, Asia, Europe, Latin America and the Caribbean. These experiences have taught Ted that it’s possible for anyone to grow their wealth and live the life they’ve always dreamed of. He brings his commitment to this goal in his monthly newsletter, The Bauman Letter.

He is regularly quoted in financial publications including Barron’sForbesMarketWatchThe Guardian and Benzinga, as well as on financial TV. He has also published articles in international journals including the Journal of Microfinance, Small Enterprise Development, and Environment and Urbanization. In addition to his own book, Endless Income, he also co-authored the book Where to Stash Your Cash Legally with his father and former U.S. Congressman, Robert Bauman.

Ted's Articles

omicron Adagio Therapeutics A Stock-Picking Mutation to Beat the Omicron Threat
November 30, 2021 Bauman Daily, Global Economy, News
- This is a company that has never made a profit. In fact, it’s never made any money at all. On top of that, analysts expect its per-share losses to double by the end of 2022. Assuming Adagio manages to generate some revenues next year — the market consensus is a minuscule $151 million — it’s already trading at almost 20 times those sales. Why? Because COVID is here to stay … and the search for a response is moving into new areas … quickly.
win at investing To Win at Investing, Accept That There Is NO Normal
November 29, 2021 Bauman Daily, Investing, U.S. Economy
- At times of extreme uncertainty, external factors drive the prices of individual stocks. Some are “a bit” predictable, like the actions of the Federal Reserve. Others are true “Black Swans” — completely unpredictable events such as Omicron. In “normal” times, on the other hand, we’re supposed to be able to predict the movement of stock prices using standard models. But what if there are no normal times? A fascinating article by a famous investment analyst convinces me that this is exactly the case.
black friday 1 Less Thing to Worry About This Black Friday
November 26, 2021 Bauman Daily, Best of Series
- Inflation has been on everyone’s mind this year. But don’t worry about it today: “Black Friday” is about resting, recovering … and pursuing all those sales that come up ... if that’s your preference. But I don’t think you should worry all that much about inflation after today either. My views on inflation don’t come from cable network talking heads or political websites.
thanksgiving dinner Let’s Talk Turkey: The Real Inflation Villains
November 23, 2021 Bauman Daily, News, U.S. Economy
- One thing I like about Thanksgiving is the opportunity it presents for stimulating conversation. I’m not talking about heated political debates. Over the years, I’ve figured out a clever way to avoid this entirely. No, I don’t disinvite people I disagree with. I simply prime myself with a couple of interesting, but little-known facts. I wait for the right moment, then drop the bomb … gently, of course. And just to make sure there’s no blowback, I focus on issues where everyone will agree. Republican or Democrat, it doesn’t matter. So, in service of your Thanksgiving table, allow me to offer 2021’s Bauman’s Diversionary Topic™…
bernie sanders socialism Trigger Warning: Bernie’s Socialism for the Rich
November 19, 2021 Bauman Daily, News, U.S. Economy
- Considerations of subsidy, cost and tax dominate public debate around U.S. social spending. People like Bernie Sanders and AOC want the government to pay more of the excessive costs of life in the United States, which are far higher than our peers. But that doesn’t address why these things are so expensive in the first place — and why they will get even more expensive if the government starts to subsidize them. Building on my longstanding interest in market structure and public policy, in today’s video — sure to be controversial! — I explain why the most progressive approach to solving America’s problems is in some ways the most conservative one.
digital revolution Opportunity Alert: Get Ready for the Shipping Revolution, Part 2 - When I finally found it, my shipment was standing on an enormous wooden pallet in the middle of what looked like a junkyard 20 miles outside Washington, D.C. That was as far as they were going to take it. “They” being the shipping company I’d hired to bring some things from Cape Town to Washington, where I’d taken on a one-year consultancy at the World Bank. The freight forwarder in Cape Town had neglected to offer the option to have things delivered door to door. Oops...
dead men walking stocks to sell Uber, Lyft and DoorDash: Sell These “Dead Men Walking” Stocks - Investors in companies like Uber, Lyft and DoorDash have been victims of a “bezzle.” That’s when a con man has managed to take your money … but YOU don’t know it yet. In today’s video, Ted explains why these so called “flywheel platform” companies can never be profitable without breaking basic laws of economic and social fairness — not to mention many laws. The worst part is that these companies have known this all along, but as part of a strategy to divert everyone’s attention from that, they have subsidized an entire generation’s lifestyle. Based on recent market action, that is almost certainly about to come to an end.
infrastructure bill Don’t Make This Infrastructure Bill Investing Mistake - On Friday, that small group caved. They agreed to pass a $1.2 trillion infrastructure package, including $550 billion of new federal investments. It’s on its way to President Biden’s desk. It’s about time. I started adding potential beneficiaries from federal infrastructure spending to my special research service, Profit Switch, back in the spring. Share price performance tracked the ups and downs of the political negotiations closely. Finally, this week they’re taking off. So, what’s in this bill? How can you position yourself to profit from it? Let’s have a look under the hood...
supply chain crisis Profit With This Supply-Crisis Solution
November 5, 2021 Bauman Daily, Investing, U.S. Economy
- U.S. supply chains are gridlocked. Prices are rising on short supplies. Warnings abound of delays in Black Friday and Christmas deliveries. “Get your orders in or you won’t get your stuff until 2022!” is the mantra from retailers to wholesalers to factories. At the heart of it all: massive container ships marooned outside American ports. Ignore all the politically expedient finger-pointing. In today’s video, Ted explains that the fragile economics of one of America’s most important industries put us in this position. And he points out that this jolting experience is certain to create a massive demand in an emerging sector that’s starting to show its stock market muscle. Investing in those companies now puts you on the right side of the supply chain solution!
stock market cheat sheet Your Cheat Sheet for Finding the Market Crushers - First you must find your target ... who’s evolved specifically to avoid big blundering mammals like us. Then you must figure out how to trap it. I ended up moving furniture away from one corner and herding it there, finally sweeping it into a little cardboard box. The whole ordeal was difficult and time-consuming … just like finding certain types of stocks. I’m not talking about the stocks that dominate the headlines.
