This episode of W.I.T. from John has me thinking about how expert views of the current economic situation can be to both unnerving and also reassuring - a dichotomy that is not often expressed.
The market downturn to start the year has many folks, including some of the smartest financial minds int he world, thinking about a recession.  
Three Things Worth Sharing
  1. A journalist used me as a source for a recent CNBC article on the role that I bonds can play in an investor's portfolio.

  2. Did you know that congressman Barber Conable of New York was responsible for the provision in the tax code that allows 401k plans to exist?  If not don’t feel too badly - neither did he!

  3. The Berkshire Hathaway annual meeting was held recently, attracting an estimated 40,000 people to Nebraska largely to hear the 'Oracle of Omaha' and his partner Charlie Munger speak.   A report from 1987 about what this meeting was like 35 years ago is very interesting reading.
About the 'What I'm Thinking' Series
I do a lot of reading and thinking about personal finance so that our clients don’t have to and I periodically share my thoughts through this series of short recordings & emails - which I’ve creatively titled ‘What I’m Thinking’!
Over time there will be some topics that appeal to everyone, some that will be mildly interesting and some that only folks who are really into personal finance will find useful - which is just perfect.  Take whatever is useful to you from these and ignore the rest - in fact I give you permission to just hit the delete button if it sounds Iike more work than fun to listen!

Mark Twain once said ‘I was going to write you a short letter but I didn’t have time, so I’m writing you a long one.’  That concept really resonates with me, so I work really hard to keep these episodes short and digestible.  I hope you find them interesting - please share it with others that might enjoy it as well!
