Ted Bauman: Economist to Writer

     A graduate of the University of Cape Town, Ted Bauman is a respected economist, businessman, leader, and writer in his field. Bauman holds postgraduate degrees in both History and Economics. While going to school in his new South African home, Bauman became aware of the good that his work in the field of economics could do for the people around him. After his graduation, Bauman made the decision to go into fund management and housing programs. His work with low-cost housing resulted in his eventual co-founding of Slum Dwellers International This organization is still operating successfully today. Slum Dwellers International has created substantial effort for change in South Africa and over 30 other countries. Through his work Bauman enjoyed a long career within South African society, even working with the South African government.

Eventually, Bauman saw the need for international change and branched out to explore other opportunities within his field. He worked alongside many well-known organizations to expand his international vision, including the United Nations and the World Bank. This experience expanded his contacts with benevolent organizations and solidified his position as a major player in international low-cost housing solutions. After visiting over 75 countries and working for several organizations, Bauman eventually took an executive position with Habitat for Humanity. In his new position, he worked for Habitat for Humanity’s international division as Director of International Housing Programs. While this position allowed him to settle for the first time in years, it also created a sense of vocational yearning. He decided that he should take the time to focus on writing and contributing to his field. To accomplish this, he left his job with Habitat for Humanity and started working with Banyan Hill Publishing as an Editorial Director.

Currently, Bauman is still employed as an Editorial Director at Banyan Hill Publishing. He acts as an editor for The Bauman Letter, Alpha Stock Alert, and Plan B Club. He continues to contribute to economic research, publishing in the international journals of Microfinance and Small Enterprise Development. Bauman has even gone as far as to publish in South African media, proving a connection to his vocational roots. His biggest success, currently, is his co-authorship of the book, Where to Stash Your Cash (Legally). Surely, Bauman’s newfound success as a writer is reflective of the commitment he has put in over the course of a long career and a momentum that doesn’t seem to be stopping anytime soon.
