Russ Wellen


(Not Russ Wellen, but his favorite animal, the spotted hyena.)

Russ Wellen is not exactly a rogue, as in cop or elephant. And, since he didn’t graduate from college, he’s more of an autodidact than a scholar. Come to think of it, though, that would make him a Rogue Scholar.

Here’s what he usually writes about:

1. Nuclear deproliferation.
2. Civilian casualties from armed conflict.
3. The enduring enigma that is the American mind.

Here’s Russ Wellen:


“The road to a world with significantly fewer nuclear weapons passes through Washington, Moscow, Paris, Beijing and London, not Damascus, Tehran and Pyongyang.”
— Norman Dombey

And remember, “Individuals who cannot master their emotions are ill-suited to profit from the investment process.”
— Benjamin Graham, Father of Value Investing (and apparent Master of His Domain)
