Back to work
I really enjoyed Golden Week this year. Managed to get out and do some stuff with the family. Sadly the next decent holiday is in August...
Here are some links to take the sting out of being back at work ;)
Kind of grim: Akita town presented as a microcosm for future population decline.
A prepper millionaire.
Great Twitter thread on electric cars, batteries, charging, etc.
This article changed my life (the opposite way it was supposed to): I could make lots more money if I worked much longer.
Can't imagine ever having to deal with this, but interesting: what it's like to have a seven-figure income.
Nice explanation of annuities, which are similar to government and final salary pension schemes: what's so bad about a guaranteed income for life?
I think this is very important, but I had to read it a couple of times before I understood it: you are not a Monte Carlo simulation.
If you aren't already saving and investing, you should probably start: the cost of waiting.
Sadly I know very few people that started saving seriously in their twenties, otherwise this makes a lot of sense: how about later.
I too would like to lose ten kilos, but doubt I'll be trying this: how I lost 10kg eating at 7-11.
Electric cars seem to be finally taking off: Germany overtakes Norway as Europe's top market for electrified cars.
Japan's population continues to drop like a stone: child population down for 37th straight year in Japan.
I've been thinking about diversifying where I keep my investments for a while now: even brokers can fail you.
I'm a fan of Tynan's approach to money: how I manage money part two, spending.
Interesting UK fireman millionaire.
Decision paralysis can be crippling for new investors. I recommend doing something, anything, to get started and build momentum: why too many choices make us bad investors.
Hydrogen fuel cells for cars seem to be a bad idea: the future of hydrogen-powered cars in Japan.
Anything good in there? The 'work longer, make more money' article made me seriously consider staying at my job instead of leaving in four years the way I had been planning to :)
