Keeping Track of Capitalists

If you don't keep your nest egg in the bank or in an old sock (whos mate got too disgusting to live), then investing is the best way to stave off inflation rot.
You can throw it into various mutual funds or other pooling resources schemes, letting professionals manage it, or go it alone.
If you decide to do it yourself it means you will have to get and stay edumacated on what's going on in the markets, and the world the markets are preying speculating on.
But how do the pros do it, find out what's going on worldwide. There are services you can subscribe to that will gather the hot poop and tabulate, collate, fold, spindle, and mutilate for you.

Number 23, Taobao, on the list of top 500 most valuable brands in the world.
A year ago it wasn't even on the list and now it's #23? It's the Chinese Amazon, so assured the party blessing. It's owned by the Alibaba multinational group so it's well financed. That's the way it works.

I stole those examples from...
The descent of man ~ Nixon, Friedman, Reagan, Trump.
