"His work is so detailed, so accurate, it's among the best in the world," says Eric Sprott, CEO of Sprott Asset Management, a Toronto firm that manages about $5 billion and subscribes to Mr. Middleton's research. Many have labeled me a Permabear, particularly my detractors and those in the media (who are decidedly not detractors but still paint a pessimistic bent on my outlooks, see sidebar below).

My proprietary investment style (see " The Great Global ... market research, surveys and trends

However, he knows the view from the stands is completely different than the view he'll get from the driver's seat of his Toyota when he takes the green flag in Saturday night's Too Tough To Tame 200 ... market trends, news research and surveys resources
