Just ask Amazon. Ten years ago, November 26, 2008, I published Dream. Invest. Live. – Pioneer the Investment Frontier So You Can Live Your Dream, which I’ve come to describe as “Personal Finance for Frugal Folk.” Books are static. Blogs are dynamic, hence the over 800 posts to this blog. The world of finance has passed through the Great Recession (the Second Great Depression, in my opinion), a dramatic recovery, and worries about another crash.
The basics of the book remain; “Spend less than you make. Invest the rest.” The world in which that happens has changed dramatically. Within the next few months I intend to begin writing the sequel that has the working title of From Middle Class to Millionaire to Muddling By – A Rollercoaster Ride Through America’s Wealth Classes. Conventional wisdom could use a review, and my experiences provide an opportunity to demonstrate perspectives on individual investing, income, wealth, inequality, frugality by choice versus necessity, health care, housing, entrepreneurship, community, and a variety of topics familiar to regular readers of this blog.
Thanks for coming along for the ride. It has been bumpy enough to jostle some folks out of the cart. Stay tuned for more. Considering the last ten years, it can be comical to extrapolate the next ten years – but of course, I’ll try.
