My posts are targeted to help you navigate your future, no matter where you live or what you do. For we all share a key reality

The aging of society suspends many of the laws of economics and finance taught in university. Choices proving smart in a setting of a young and growing population may achieve the opposite result in an environment of an aging and even shrinking one.
