Deadliest Catch Captains Show Off Their Global Economics and Forex Knowledge

Filed in Commodities 4 comments

One of the best shows on cable television, at least in my opinion, has to be Discovery Channel’s hit show Deadliest Catch.  Where a group of uber grouchy, Type A personality crab boat captains risk life and limb so we can dip those succulent eight leg crustaceans in a bowl of melted butter.

Most people might write these guys off as the stereotypical “blue collar worker” who haphazardly risk their lives in the world’s deadliest job for a larger than average paycheck.  That assumption was corrected today by the last person I expected — Jim Cramer from CNBC’s Mad Money.

You will quickly see these captains (Keith Colburn and Sig Hansen) are just as “dialed in” to global economics, commodities markets and Forex trading as they are when they’re “on the crab”.  In fact, if you didn’t know they were fisherman, you might think they’re businessmen or commodities traders giving the standard CNBC interview.

In case you haven’t seen the show, here is a quick preview of the new upcoming season.

That is pretty awesome. That is all i wanted to say.

I think it’d be sweeet if they started talking about side investments or what not =)

Yeah it was pretty cool. I would be curious if these guys would make good commodity traders/analysts if they chose to retire to an office instead of fishing until they’re 65+.

Love that show… the worst are the marathon sessions when they play them all day.

They seem more like warren buffet long-term investor types; invest in what they know right!
