Financial Advice

Post by Martin Hash » Fri Jul 09, 2021 7:35 pm

Though it seems reasonable that financial advice is focused on money, if you consider the reasons someone wants that advice, the emphasis on money doesn’t make sense: money is only a means to achieve the things you want to do, but you can do those things now with the money you’re told to invest. The simple reason not to postpone your satisfaction & enjoyment to some future date is because that’s predicting the future; one that’s looking more-and-more like an oncoming trainwreck.

The best financial advice is to turn imaginary money into something real as soon as possible: remodel your house, start microfarming, gain new experiences, or collect things that please you and will also hold their value. Another good thing to do with money is invest in yourself: get educated, learn a trade, start a business. This spend-now advice is so good that it’s tempting to suggest borrowing money to do it, especially since the coming volatility may make that a moot obligation, but that’s predicting the future too.

SJWs are a natural consequence of corporatism.
