Bitcoin, blockchain, distributed ledger, and cryptocurrency will change our future. They are terms to describe components of a technological and social revolution on the horizon. Yet, any talk of bitcoin, alternative coins (alt coins) such as ethereum, eos, ripple, or initial coin offerings (ICO’s) often come with significant speculation and hype that makes it difficult to take seriously the extraordinary underlying technology of distributed ledgers and their impact to our future. Consensus ...

People are social animals. We aren’t designed to be wearing masks, not touching each other, and quarantining. Yet for the last six months, that’s been our predicament. At the same time, we are increasing our dependence on digital socializing through social media and have significantly increased our collective screen times and subsequent exposure to…

It is the second week of September—my birthday week. And…as I reflect on the past 12 months, I can’t help but think, “What a shitty year”. The only solace I take in my reflection is knowing how radically things can change over the course of 12 months. The pendulum just needs to move the other way. The good news is that this time next year could, an…

Episode 101 brings us to Ned and his head. If it doesn’t roll, what happens? We have all been conditioned, now, to a world without Ned, but how much would really change if he were granted his pardon? Well, the Fingers are here to explore. What might happen if Ned were sent to the Wall, or what if he were exchanged for Jaime, recently captured in th…
 
If you like these “Ask Buck“ shows, you’ve been enjoying the last few weeks. I would love to get some feedback from you as I’m always trying to improve the quality of my content. In the meantime, here is the third and last ask Buck episode of the summer! We will do it again sometime in the fall. Enjoy! The post 227: Ask Buck Part 3 appeared first o…
 
We do a lot of interview based content on Wealth Formula Podcast. However, the feedback I get is that the most learning happens during our “Ask Buck” episodes. The good news is that we have a bunch of questions lined up so we will do a couple of “Ask Buck” shows in a row for the next few weeks. We had our first round of questions last week and have…

“You’re nuts!” That’s what I would say to anyone a year ago who suggested that we would face a global pandemic that would put us in a recession magnitudes greater than 2008 (based on GDP), make all bars and restaurants shut down and cancel professional athletics. I would also think you were nuts if you told me that despite all of this financial des…

There is a phenomenon in finance that I have witnessed first hand that I find fascinating. The best way to explain it is to tell you about a guy I know out here in California who has been very successful as a fund manager. I asked him once about the expectations of his investors and he quickly replied: “5 percent”. Knowing this guy was pretty savvy…

Back in the early 1990s, I was a freshman at Columbia University in New York. Frankly, I wasn’t very interested in the academic part of college at the time. I was too busy doing what a college kid might do after being dropped into Manhattan after going to private school in the midwest. In fact, I realized that college courses were starting to inter…

“Be careful what you wish for…lest it come true!” -Aesop’s Fables I remember back in college going to the mail center daily in hopes of finding and acceptance letter to medical school. Back then, I really romanticized the idea of being one of those heroes in a white coat. Fortunately, I got what I wanted and was very excited. The next August I drov…

Entrepreneurs are just professional problem solvers who keep score by how much money they make. I know this because I am an entrepreneur at my very core. It’s not a choice I made, it’s the way I was born. Entrepreneurship is not usually glamorous as frequently depicted in the movies or on reality shows. Most of us have more failures than we have su…

When in Rome, do as the Romans do. If we follow that advice, what do we do in an economic environment like today? Austrian economists would tell us to stop printing money and to keep the Fed out of the bond market. If we did that, we would go into a depression. No one denies that—not even the Austrians. The disagreement is on whether or not it’s th…

In episode 100 (guys, we made it to 100!) we continue our series of “What if” content. The fingers of Davos tackle the question: What if Oberyn Martell had defeated Gregor Clegane during Tyrion’s trial by battle? How would court life look with a healthy Oberyn gumming up the works? Tyrion is free, but is he though? Does Tywin still die? The “grass”…
 
Robert Kiyosaki’s Real Estate Advisor, Ken McElroy, was kind enough to give his perspective on the current state of apartment investing on last week’s episode of Wealth Formula Podcast. Ken’s perspective on the state of the apartment market was pretty bleak. While there is no doubt I respect Ken’s views, I also think it is important to get the pers…

I have been on the record for a while now anticipating the “tsunami following the earthquake.” In other words, COVID-19 was a destructive economic force but the aftermath may be even worse. The theory is based on historical observations of how these things tend to play out. The problem and potential flaw in the rationale, however, is that there rea…

In our latest video conference, a question was asked that I think pretty much all of us have at this point. If the economy is in the tank, why does the stock market seem to be tone-deaf to what’s going on? It’s the elephant in the room, right? Well, I don’t claim to know the answer to that but let me give you my two cents. First, fiscal and monetar…

The Davos’ Fingers podcast is trying something a little new starting with Episode 99. The next several episodes will focus on “What if” questions. Matt and Scad will then spend the episode untangling how George’s world would have been different if crucial moments had gone just a little bit differently. So, get your headphones on and listen in as we…
 
Robert Kiyosaki is the author of Rich Dad Poor Dad, the best selling financial book of all time. He went on to publish several books including Cashflow Quadrant which fundamentally changed my life. To say that Robert Kiyosaki has made an impact in the world is an understatement. He has helped to create a generation of entrepreneurs inspired by his …
 
There were a few questions left in the “Ask Buck” file that have finally been answered! You can listen to the latest episode HERE. The good news is that this format seems to be quite popular. I really do enjoy these virtual interactions and encourage you to keep those questions coming! Enjoy. The post 214: Ask Buck Part 3 appeared first on Wealth F…

As I mentioned last week, we had a lot of questions piled up in the “Ask Buck” file that I need to get answered. As a result, we ended up with multiple shows. You can listen to the latest episode HERE. The good news is that this format seems to be quite popular. I really do enjoy these virtual interactions and encourage you to keep those questions …
 
Ever since this COVID-19 thing started, it seems like there is no other news. Maybe what that tells us is that most of the news we ordinarily get on a daily basis is worthless. But seriously, doesn’t it seem like the world has just frozen into a COVID-19 coma? My ER doc friends joke that everyone stopped having heart attacks and strokes since this …
 
“It’s hard to make predictions—especially about the future.” That’s one of my favorite Yogi Berra quotes. It’s funny but also incredibly true. Think about what is happening now with COVID-19. Social scientists make predictions based on assumptions. The epidemiologists are making projections on the spread of the virus even though they have no signif…

In episode 98 the Fingers of Davos explore the most impressive of the free cities: Pentos, Braavos and Volantis. These are perhaps the most different cities from each other as you can get. Braavos, the poster-child of anti-slavery starkly cast against Volantis powered by slaves at a ratio of 5-to-1, with Pentos in between, pretending not to be pro-…
 
“Be fearful when others are greedy and greedy when others are fearful,” said a wise sage from Omaha. We’ve heard these words from Warren Buffett for years. On the surface, the advice seems pretty obvious in the investing sense right? After all, when a sector gets obliterated it will either disappear entirely or it will eventually rebound. Most of t…

Last episode we talked about the realities of COVID-19—what it is, what makes it so challenging and how dangerous it really is. We also talked about potential medical treatments. In this episode, we go into vaccinations and economic impacts of COVID-19. Listen to Part 1 here: https://www.wealthformula.com/podcast/208-4-doctors-a-virus-and-a-battere…
 
What a strange time we live in where even public health issues are politicized. The wingnuts on the right want to downplay a virus that has already taken the lives of more people than the Vietnam war. The wingnuts on the left want to demonize anyone who even suggests an alternative approach to dealing with the pandemic outside of staying at home in…
