About Don McAlvany

Donald McAlvany is the editor of The McAlvany Intelligence Advisor (MIA), a monthly geopolitical/financial intelligence newsletter analyzing global economic, social, political and monetary developments and their effects on our country, free enterprise system, families, and finances for today and the future.

Don's hard hitting, factual approach made him a favorite on such radio talk shows as Marlin Maddoux’s Point of View, the Southwest Radio Bible Church, Moody Network’s Prime Time America, South Africa’s 15-million viewer prime time Network and many more.

He has been a featured speaker at Christian, political, monetary, and investment conferences in Western Europe, Africa, Australia, the Middle East, Hong Kong, and Singapore, as well as all over the North American continent and Latin America.

He has conducted similar tours of the Pacific Rim with General John Singlaub, Dr. David Nobel of Summit Ministries, and Robert Morris, former Chief Counsel to the U.S. Senate Foreign Relations, and Internal Security committees.

With a background in undercover intelligence work, Don remains closely connected with the international intelligence community. He is sought out by leading high-level political, business, and military leaders throughout the world, who desire his consultation on issues ranging from military strategies to understanding geopolitical moves affecting global freedom and the international marketplace.

After graduating from the University of Texas, Don worked for six years as the National Marketing Director of the world’s largest gold share investment company. He is chairman of International Collectors Associates (ICA), a 35-year-old Colorado-based securities, precious metals, insurance, and consultation firm serving clients in over 20 countries. Don and his wife, Molly, have four children and currently reside in Durango, Colorado.

With such a background, Don is well qualified to research and expound upon major financial, economic, political, and geopolitical events at home and around the world. He invites you to join him in his monthly discussion of such events in MIA.
