This blog is a personal compilation of thoughts on Finance, Travel and Culture. Although a variety of topics ranging from the Economy to the Fed to individual stocks are discussed, this should not be interpreted as investment advice. You should consult your own advisor before investing in risky assets including stocks, bonds, or real estate. Risky assets can lose money including loss of the entire capital invested.
