Bill Bonner

In 1978, William Bonner created what is now known as Agora Inc. What began as a small publishing company based in Washington, DC, has grown to be one of the largest and most successful consumer newsletter publishers in the world.

Since founding Agora Inc. in 1978, Bill Bonner has worked steadily to turn it into a “minimultinational,” with publishing offices in eight different countries on six different continents.

As a personal friend of former Editor in Chief Lord Rees Mogg, Bill has always been a supporter of the values and principles The Fleet Street Letter stands for. Since taking over ownership of the publication in the early 1990s, Bill has helped preserve and protect the ideas that have made The Fleet Street Letter so successful for so long.

Bill, along with his friend and colleague Addison Wiggin, has written two New York Times Best Selling books: Financial Reckoning Day and Empire of Debt. Both works were critically acclaimed and internationally distributed. His most recent book, Hormegeddon, also hit the New York Bestseller list.
