Unapologetically conservative (from a contemporary perspective), liberal (from a historical perspective), an-cap libertarian (from a political pespecive), complementary (from a gender perspective) and Austrian (from an economic perspective). After years of trading and reading on the economy and finances, I decided to start sharing my perspective on certain issues at hand, hoping to stir thought. The goal isn't to indoctrinate, but educate in an effort to help people think about things they may never have before; or at least provide fresh perspective if they have. I’m just Another Joe. But I suppose I’m Not Your Average Joe. You might see me pop up on forums here and there, where I share a piece of my mind, whether I can afford to or not. I want to help people think through the implications of the times. And, due to my own ignorance, known or unknown, I’ll get some things wrong. There will be plenty of opportunity to correct me in this regard as well. In an effort to live a freer life, I'm building a business in Chile. For those interested, we offer immigration services, including permanent residency, consulting, Spanish lessons, real estate services and more. Check out AllAboutChile.com.
I invest (technically) part-time, but I love the markets and immerse myself in them daily. I enjoy writing about my investment ideas as it helps me to organize my thoughts and I am happy to share if it helps others. I invite criticism as it will help sharpen my ideas, so please tell me where, in your opinion, I am going wrong.
