Atherton, CA (PRWEB) September 13, 2012
Today Truth Seal Corp. announced that Dr. Frederick Grauer has joined the TruthMarket™ Board of Advisors. TruthMarket is an online Marketplace for Truth Telling™. It provides ordinary citizens with a platform to “crowd-fund” and execute grass roots campaigns that publicly expose misrepresentations and false political, commercial and science claims, while highlighting true claims and offering cash rewards to successful campaign creators, sponsors and challengers.
Formerly the leader of one of the largest investment firms in the world and an acknowledged innovator in market behavior, Dr. Grauer is presently an investor in entrepreneurial ventures and an advisor to pension and investment funds. He brings an established track record of vetting strategic alternatives and distinguishing between hard facts and wishful thinking. When asked why he was drawn to TruthMarket, Dr. Grauer explained that, “Markets aggregate information and are, by definition, a battleground of opinion. TruthMarket has devised a socially productive way to publicly endow the search for truth and separate winners from losers in this ongoing battle.”
“We’re very excited that Dr. Grauer has chosen to join the TruthMarket Board of Advisors and add his authority to our expanding cadre of experts committed to reversing the growth of manipulative speech, false claims and fractured facts,” said Rick Hayes-Roth, Ph.D., Founder and CEO of Truth Seal. “Dr. Grauer’s continued association with global investment funds, as well as academia and entrepreneurial ventures, has attracted a large following of well-informed professionals. We look forward to having them participate in TruthMarket campaigns.”
“Truth Seal’s corporate board is actively recruiting authorities with the stature of Dr. Grauer for the TruthMarket Board of Advisors,” stated Mark L. Feldman, Ph.D., Board Member and investor. “The involvement of respected and reputable advisors will advance and accelerate TruthMarket’s mission to increase truth and trust throughout the information space.” Feldman adds that “over the next few weeks there will be more announcements of public figures joining the TruthMarket Board of Advisors.”
