My two favorite blog posts so far for the semester are:
1. Investment opportunities.
I have been thinking about the quote “the rich get richer, and the poor get poorer”. One of the many of reasons that this is true is simply due to the ability to invest. I have been lucky enough to see people close to me succeed in their careers and have the ability to diversify their money into different avenues. One of the things that I find great about this is the fact that when you have the ability to invest you can limit your potential losses, making sure to not bankrupt yourself if you chose to. But, the beauty of it is that you have that one opportunity that may actually take off and the potential for return could be unlimited. Minimize your loses, with a potential of unlimited return.
2. Docs. Health care and gov’t assisted programs are always a good topic for debate.
I was a big believer in the new Health care system. Before I was able to get coverage through my employer, I was happy to be able to have health insurance coverage at a reasonable price. Although, my tax return for the year definitely did struggle, the fact that I knew a injury wouldn’t put me in financial hell. I was able to sleep at night. I think that everyone should be able to see a doctor if needed.
