When that day comes, some of us will want to sell everything and the best way to guard against bad investing is to understand what’s going on.
“We care about what goes on in Washington, because lawmakers’ decisions will always affect Main Street. We know the nation’s short-term debt doesn’t matter, long-term debt does, and the debt ceiling is stupid. We also know that tax reform is necessary but it won’t happen anytime soon.
