“For the love of money is the root of all evils; it is through this craving that some have wandered away from the faith and pierced their hearts with many pangs.” (1 Timothy 6:10)
Welcome. This blog is about money. To some, money is religion; to others, it stands in opposition. Money is a source of greed and of charity; it is a tool that can be used for good or for evil. It is a way to take care of ourselves and our families, making the world a better place. It is also a way to keeping score. Money affects us all, whether we like it or not.
I have another blog, Chicago on the Cheap, about frugal living. People ask why I write about saving money and hedge funds, but both are ways people relate to money. This blog explores money and culture all over the world. How do we save it? How do we use it for education, retirement, and charity? How do we measure growth? What is the situation in other places? Let’s find out.
