I know I have a lot of people following me on this platform and via email subscriptions now that don’t know me personally. I understand that many of you started following me because of gardening, homeschooling, and nature chat. I swear I will get back to that at some point. (Our eaglets are doing great, by the way.)
My professional background is in finance and economics, however, and I am getting pinged non-stop with messages from friends and family who work in finance or generally want to know if we are screwed as a country. Given that and my compulsive personality on all things, it is highly unlikely that I am going to lay off the finance and economics talk and some of my future posts might get insufferably wonky.
I am very sorry if that annoys anyone. I fully understand the need to “prune” your thoughts and stay positive. As I have noted in previous posts, that’s how I try to live my life too. But what we are going through in the markets right now is unlike anything I have ever experienced, even during the financial crisis, and working out the details with my pals in finance is how I process my thoughts and concerns.
