The US war on poverty

In 1964, US President Johnson declared war on poverty. He stated that the wealthiest nation on Earth should be able to beat it.

A sustainable competitive advantage

Warren Buffett states that if you aren't willing to own a stock for ten years, don't even think about owning it for ten minutes.

Human nature is most concerned with short term loss aversion, not long-term gain seeking. Because we are so short-term oriented, it's an enormous advantage if you can operate on a longer time than the competition. Having a ten, twenty, and thirty-year track record of ethical behaviour is a very defensive career position.

  • Anyone can access the public parts of the ledger of transactions or "blockchain." If you can keep your wallet anonymous, no institution need to know who you are.
