Albert is considered to be the father of consumer confidence surveys. He was an advisor to President Herbert Hoover and formed Sindlinger Company Inc. in 1948, which gathered data on consumer confidence for many years.

This interview is still relevant today. It gives great perspective on current dilemmas we are facing in today’s economy and how they parallel the Great Depression. Mr. Sindlinger also talks about current statistics and how they are manipulated. Finally, Albert states that gold is a good safe haven and believed that gold would go to $2,000 to $5,000/oz.
