This week on @blueleaf we included articles on the basic principles of investing, including five things one should know before starting to invest, the types of investment risks out there, and some information on spousal social security benefits.
My favorite article this week is Barel Karsan’s “Don’t Focus On Consumer Spending,” which argues that other metrics of the economy can perhaps be more revealing.
