Like it or hate it, our little blue planet spinning in space is currently focussed on money. Sport, gardening and cooking shows may interrupt for a while but all across the globe the big competition is money.
Economic World Title Fight
It is not really a stretch to say that looking at the way countries and economies are being governed today is like watching a very boring tv show involving second rate actors and two-bit extras. A kindergarten side-show that no one is interested in but everyone has an unwilling stake in.
i could spend hours writing a comprehensive dissertation on why this is so, and the key positions held by the two duelling schools of economic thought. And you could spend hours reading it.
But we’re not going to do that today – partly because today is a Friday, and partly because i have found a much better way. i’m going to share it with you, and you don’t have to send me money or subscribe to my website or email newsletter. Not because i’m exhorbitantly wealthy or benevolent or even because i’m a nice guy. I’m sharing this because you will not find a better description of the arguments being debated in the hallowed halls of power all around the world right now. Arguments that will determine every aspect of your future financial position.
