Jean-Paul Schmetz brings to Daily Speculations an interesting mix of philosophy (not afraid of real thinking), econometrics (measure, quantify, test...) and media (understanding of mass behavior). Mr. Schmetz holds degrees in Philosophy (M.A. magna cum laude) and Economics (econometrics) from the University of Louvain (Belgium). He ran the digital division of a large global media firm based in Germany until the end of 2002. In 2003, he switched out of operations to focus on a hedge fund he created in 1998. He continues to sit on the media firm's supervisory board and is a special advisor to the owner. He was born in Belgium and raised in Belgium and Boston, Massachusetts. He is married with four children, and lives with his family in Munich, Germany.
