The Iran War - History repeats, and investors win

It wasn’t that long ago, in 2003, when the US invaded Iraq. Oil prices skyrocketed. I remember filling up at the pump in California on a road trip back then, where few gas stations were less than $5 a gallon for regular gas. Well it seems history may repeat. The US is at the precipice of war with Iran, and the threat of rising oil prices could be a huge win for those ready for this.

Do you have your “Bug Out” strategy ready?

Are you ready for the rise of China and the decline of the US empire? We are only a matter of a few years away from the US losing the #1 economic powerhouse position in the world, and that could signal either a long economic stagnation or a fast economic collapse.

Retirement = Death

The sadness of hypnotized hope

We just returned from a family weekend to Las Vegas and although the shows are incredible and we all enjoyed them, walking down the Strip and being shunted in and out of casinos forces you to see the dichotomy that is Las Vegas and the life of the constrained.

What this contrarian investor is buying in Q3 2019

I don’t give personal financial advice. But what I will do is to open the kimono, so to speak, and tell you what I’m doing. Maybe history will prove me to be foolish or wrong, or some super genius or something, but I have no crystal ball. What I do have, however, is a sensitivity and observation of what is going on in the world and I use that directly to influence my own decision making process.  I'll tell you what I'm doing here.

Celebrate being a control freak

I’m not a fan of the Tim Ferris book, “The 4 Hour Work Week”. It is a flawed method for achieving what people aspire to - a life of abundance with little effort. It celebrates the concept of little work and big rewards, and is no magic formula for life. The fact is the more you give up and outsource the more constrained you are. Let’s discuss.

My own personal disaster with retirement

When I was 32, I retired. It didn’t end well. This is my retirement story. Take from it what you can. Life isn't experienced in some cubicle somewhere, but the majority of people I talk to who are embracing FIRE (Financial Independence Retire Early) don't really understand what life looks like on the other side of the retirement line and why they might want to rethink their goals.
