To invest your money you need a very clear idea of what is likely to happen in the future.
Without that clear idea, you're simply gambling.
The two most important concepts in understanding the future are:
A) Understanding the difference between causality and correlation.
B) Understanding the nature/function of money.
To understand those two things you have to do a lot of work. Go do it.
The absolute most dangerous method of trying to understand the future involves looking at past periods and expecting them to repeat.
This is the way of financial devastation.
Not always. But certainly now.
Because our financial edifice is built upon debt.
This is true globally.
This is inherently extremely unstable.
There has never been a period in world history with a commensurate global build-up of debt.
To understand how this will resolve you must understand two things:
A) Understand the difference between causality and correlation.
B) Understand the nature/function of money.
To understand these two things your have to do a lot of work.
Go do it.
Your financial future depends on it.
