I know, I know, the world is goig to hell in a handbasket at the moment... the market volatility is frightening! But what are we are going to do about it? What is the best advice that anyone can give you right now?
In this discussion, which was taped on the eve of the market collapse (and then it's eventual snap back up), I talk with Charles Hugh Smith on his new book The Unconventional Guide to Investing in Troubled Times (available now on Amazon in Kindle format). CHS explains the effects that globalization and centralization of power has had on our global economy and how he thinks the pendulum is going to be swinging in the other direction... and soon. Maybe not this week kinda soon, but within this next decade kinda soon. So how do you prepare for that?
CHS gives probably the best advice one can give during these uncertain times, invest in yourself. Sounds easy right? But what does it mean to invest in yourself and what must you consider when you make such a bold move. There are consequences to investing in yourself that need to addressed... and I can't wait to read all about it in his latest book
The enticement of CHS's latest book (since it is only in Kindle format at the moment) pressured me into purchasing a tablet reader, and so I am one of 'those guys' now. Et tu Steve, et tu?
