I’ve grown up reading Tom Clancy and probably most of you have at least seen Red October, so this book caught my eye when browsing used books for a recent trip. It’s a fairly human look at what’s involved in sailing on a Trident missile submarine…
I’ve had a bunch of writings based on finances over the last couple weeks, and I’ve tried to spread them out so as not to overwhlem or bore people. Some people don’t care and others are so deep they probably think I’m not looking at it enough. And this isn’t a financial site.
In any case, my wife and I have talked about it, and we’ve been watching things. I haven’t been too worried since we have a lot of time, but I’ve talked with friends about it, and they are of mixed opinions. It was during one of these conversations that got me wondering about the tech world and the impact. So I was curious how many people think they affected, are are really affected. If you carry consumer debt, then it might be an issue, or if you have an ARM on your house.
I’m actually wondering what most of my audience thinks about it from people in my field, people that work for a living and are somewhat counting on fund managers and companies to take care of them.
Why did I write this? I got challenged by Andy Warren
to write a bit about why I wrote something. I complained to him that he
has some “mechanical” posts on this blog that just mention he wrote
something with some questions, and don’t really blog about why he wrote
something. He challenged me to write about why I wrote something, so
here I am.
