    Episode 66: Norm Schriever

    in Writing

    Join Jerry and Jackie as they finally get a much-wanted in-person interview with show regular Norm Schriever. 
    Norm Schriever is a humorist, cultural mad scientist, enemy of the comfort zone and author of "Pushups in the Prayer Room," a wild, irreverent account of a year spent backpacking around the world. He grew up in Connecticut and graduated from the University of Connecticut, where he was never accused of over-studying, and went on to live in North Carolina, Colorado and most recently in Northern California.  Dissatisfied with a conventional existence, Norm sold or donated all of his possessions and moved down to Costa Rica in 2011 to pursue his passion of writing. His first book was written in the sleepy surf town of Tamarindo with the help of his secret weapons: fresh ocean air and Baileys in his morning coffee. He now resides in San Juan Del Sur, Nicaragua where he is writing his next book, 'Get Happy,' a memoir about life as an ex pat, and writing for the Huffington Post. He sees his words as a way to illuminate the commonalities of human existence, and thereby hopes to leave this planet a little better than how he found it.

    What is really going on in the Economy with Randy Cook, President of NORM

    in News

    My Guest for todays show is President of NORM Randy Cook.


    The National Organization for Raw Materials (NORM) is an organization dedicated to scientific economic analysis and education. It was established more than 40 years ago as the successor to the Raw Materials National Council, which was formed in the 1930s. Its members, officers, and Executive Board members -- who finance the organization's annual budget through their dues and donations -- refer to NORM as a "think tank" focusing on the role of raw materials in the American and world economy.


    NORM's analysis of the U.S. economy differs from mainstream economic analysis. It is not predicated upon any "economic theory" such as "Keynesian," "supply-side," "trickle-down," "monetarist," etc. In the 1930s, its founder -- Carl H. Wilken -- began his analytical studies with no pre-conceived ideas or economic theories. He simply wanted to scientifically analyze the economic records of the U.S. government to find out what "really" caused the Great Depression and to determine if a future depression could be prevented.


    NORM members have faithfully stuck to Wilken's original premise: Scientifically studying the nation's economic record and interpreting it so that current and future policies will strengthen and stabilize the U.S. economy.
