Learn economics. Topics in Economics can give even the newbie insights into how the economies of the world work with a focus on China and the USA. There are 30 topics listed with articles on those subjects, as well as a glossary of terms. I have written a lot of vetted articles that are exclusive** to Talkmarkets. Sorting a portion of them by subject will give the reader an opportunity to make sense of it all. I am adding a glossary of terms at the bottom of this page. For readers interested in economic subjects of the day, these top 30 themes are my efforts to make understanding economics easier.
Please keep in mind that many economic and moral decisions change as we approach the zero lower bound for interest rates. As bonds go negative, things change.

I was convinced last summer that they would push rates negative in that scenario. Negative rates could yet happen, but I think they wi…
This article is not an endorsement of every "job" offer on Rat Race Rebellion or other work at home websites. You have to be careful when searching for an online job. But for multigenerational households, especially, you can dispense with a car and clothing costs and food costs associated with working outside the home.
An example for one being careful in this arena is my wife. My wife has worked for one of the sites on Ratrace called Arise. Arise is probably one that makes it easier for an older person like my wife to get a job to get through to social security, or to supplement social security.
But Arise makes you pay for the course, for the training, and your sponsor takes a cut out of all earnings! So, Arise is not for everyone.
