Today’s modern financial system is built on one thing and one thing only: trust. We trust the people behind the governments who issue money. We trust the banks who loan money out, far out-leveraging their own assets. We trust the managers of companies that use the loans to build assets – we trust that they will be able (for the most part) to build assets to pay back those loans. ...

Negotiating is an everyday thing. You do it when you wake up, just before breakfast, as you try get your kids ready. You do it as you make your way through traffic or on the metro to work, negotiating your space, who is first in the line, who merges first in the traffic. You definitely do it at work.

In financial planning one often looks at recent events as the first basis to project the immediate future, as what better than yesterday as a way to predict today? When it comes to longer term planning, things start to get complicated, as the number of variables that can influence any given future increases. Hence would it be logical to conclude that the short term and the long term are mutually ...

This is the average budget for a family of four living in a second tier city in the Euro Zone. That equates to an annual expenditure of 48.000€. Before we get into calculation specifics and what that means in terms of household expenditure, lets be clear that this isn’t the ...

Consumerism has been amongst us for more than 100 years. Prior to consumerism society bought things they needed. Food to survive, clothes to keep you warm, but it was the industrial revolution that changed all that. As production increased so did the need to sell extra goods made. As profits increased, so did the need to make more money. How do you get people to buy things they don’t need? ...

We all have bad days at work. You know, those days when the first meeting of the day goes on and on and on. When your boss comes by and tells you that you didn’t do something right, when you did exactly what was asked. When you spill coffee on your pants and your computer crashes again right in the middle of preparing an important document. You may ask yourself ...

I’ve always been an advocate for property investments. It started when I was young and property has been, by far, the biggest driver of my wealth creation over the last decade.
