It feels weird to say this in November, but The Masters is this week! For golf fans around the world, that is great news! Doesn’t it feel like a decade ago when Tiger Woods made the improbable run to win the 2019 Masters tournament?
Here’s what I’ve been reading this morning:
‘My First Word: More’ – Tim Mullooly – Living With Money
- In my latest blog post from last week I wrote about my very first word: more. Constantly wanting more can be an inspiring feeling, but it can also be a dangerous one. I wrote about the beauty and dangers of the word “more”, both personally and financially.
‘The Markets and the Economy Don’t Care About Your Politics’ – Cullen Roche – Pragmatic Capitalism
- As Cullen illustrates, the economy and the markets are far more complex and diverse than just one President. Assigning FULL credit, or blame, to an administration is not taking into account so many other factors.
‘What Happens When Investors See People Dumber Than They Are Getting Rich’ – Ben Carlson – A Wealth of Common Sense
- Building off a popular quote from Warren Buffett, Ben writes about how markets function and bubbles appear. He writes about the current state of the housing market, and how people’s behavior is being impacted by what their neighbors are doing.
‘The Value of a Fiduciary in Volatile Markets’ – Mullooly Asset Podcast
- In Ep. 330, I spoke with Tom about the benefit of working with a fee-only fiduciary advisor in volatile markets. You can rest assured knowing that the advice you’re getting is 100% conflict-free in your best interest, and not in the interest of lining their pockets with commission checks.
