Hello, my friends, and welcome to another week.
After three months dedicated to selling our house, it’s now time to turn my attention to the next step of the process: buying a new place! To that end, I’m spending countless hours browsing Zillow. And I’m nearly ready to start visiting potential “next homes”. Yay! I can only hope this crazy market subsides a little.
Meanwhile, here are some of my favorite money stories from around the web lately.
The top 9 bad arguments against Bitcoin. [J.L. Collins] — “Today I want to look at the most common arguments against Bitcoin that you are likely hearing every day…I want to help you dispense with these shallow headline hot-takes and level up your understanding so next time we can debate some of the genuine issues facing crypto adoption.”
Five financial issues on which people can reasonably disagree. [Humble Dollar] — “When it comes to financial questions, there are two common reasons people disagree. Sometimes, they disagree about the facts—whether, say, interest rates are headed higher. But sometimes, people disagree for another reason: They see the world through different lenses.”
What inflation means for stocks. [Nerdwallet] — “If you can build a portfolio that’s low-cost, tax-advantaged and highly diversified, that’s how you protect your returns from inflation, and how you keep the majority of your money over time — no matter what’s happening in the markets or broader economy.”
The tyranny of time. [Noema] — “During an era in which social constructs like race, gender and sexuality are being challenged and dismantled, the true nature of clock time has somehow escaped the attention of wider society. Much like has happened with money, the clock has come to be seen as the thing it was only supposed to represent: The clock has become time itself.” This is a l-o-n-g but fascinating piece. Highly recommended.
Kim sat me down last week and made me watch the new P!nk documentary on Amazon Prime Video. To be fair, I made her watch an anime film first. Also to be fair, I was blown away by P!nk…everything about her. She’s incredible. Here she is in a very un-P!nk-like performance in her “secret’ folk duo.
Not bad, he?
Okay, folks. That’s it for Monday. I’ll be back tomorrow with more great stuff. See you then!
