This article is based on a documentary we recently released on our YouTube channel. Check it out, we would love to hear what you think!
The situation is so unstable: in Ukraine, in the world, on the stock market. On the sun even? To be honest, the only thing that’s constant about history is that nothing changes.
There have been many horrible wars and crises, and stock market crashes. And nothing seems to change. Why? Is it that humans really can’t come up with a better system than this? Who’s to blame for all these problems and crashes? Maybe it’s the other party’s fault? 🐸
An important thing to note is that a crisis is not only a bad thing. It’s always an opportunity for personal growth. This means a financial crisis is an opportunity for financial growth. If we take fear out of the equation, now is the best time to prepare for the next cycle.
While we don’t want to say whether you should buy anything — Ceci n’est pas investment advice! — stock market crashes are not only stories of lost fortunes, they are also stories of fortunes built and rebuilt. But historically the market only goes one way and it’s up and up, and more up.
However, considering the ridiculous level of inflation, investing seems like one of the only ways we have to make sure we keep our savings and can secure a good financial future for ourselves and our loved ones.
It’s useful to understand how this system works and why it seems like the big guys always win and the small guys always lose. It’s not just because they don’t know some secret insider information (hi Nancy!) but also because the system is rigged. It’s rigged against ordinary people and favors the big players.
The government always says the economy is in trouble that’s why we need to raise interest rates or lower interest rates. First, the Fed lower the rates, then they raise them and everything falls apart. They print more and more money to help the economy but then the economy suffers from that 10 years later and the cycle repeats itself.
They tried to save the economy in 2000 so what did we get? 2008! Then they bailed out the banks in 2008 and where did it bring us? To 2020! And then they lowered the rates and started printing money and what do we get? Another recession!
From every banking transaction to the stock market, the government, and especially the Fed, the system is made in a way to take away people’s wealth.
Remember that one time Amazon paid, like, almost no tax ever? One of the biggest tech, e-commerce businesses that also powers the whole Internet? Or Uber, an app on your phone that employs millions of drivers all around the world and takes a cut from every ride — that app is not profitable? All this stuff is just the tip of the iceberg.
And that’s why whatever happens you need to be prepared. The world is changing so fast and we can’t rely on the government or anyone else to do things right. That’s why you need to learn the investing game and play it according to your own rules.
