The purpose of this blog is not to give specific investment advice but to help individuals continue their own financial self-education. Defined benefit pensions are going the way of the dinosaur. World economies seem to cycle through booms and busts with increasing frequency.
As a result, those of us born after World War II are being forced to educate ourselves about investments and the global economy. I have to admit, though, I really do find the many intertwining influences on investments and the economy fascinating, and sometimes, even fun. So, my aim is to gather useful information with the help of readers. I hope you will find this helpful in making your own decisions and in discussions with financial advisors.
