For the last few months, every time we turn the calendar into a new month it feels like a clean slate and a chance to really make this month better than the last one. As we get June started today, hopefully we can make June 2020 a little better than May.
Here’s what I’ve been reading this morning:
- On last week’s podcast, I spoke with Tom and Brendan about a handful of articles that all revolved around one main topic: figuring out what exactly your money is for. Whether it’s finding the right allocation, or findings ways to save more, those decisions become easier when you have a goal in mind.
- In Barry’s latest piece, he writes about how easy it is for us to forget what we were all feeling in the moment of a market decline and re-write history using our hindsight bias. He tells the story of the last time something like this happened, and warns us to not let it happen again.
- In Bob’s latest edition of The Better Letter, he writes about the post-pandemic “new normal”, and how nobody has any idea of what it is going to look like. Predicting the future is really hard to do, and Bob shares some examples throughout history proving just that.
- In the newest column from Jason, “Back in Business” takes a look at what’s happening today and puts it into perspective through the eyes of businesses in the past. This article focuses on the story of A.P. Giannini.
