I can’t believe 2012 is already winding to a close. It’s been a wild year here at Pragcap. In a lot of ways, the focus of the site has shifted gears with the development of Monetary Realism and the creation of my new company. But the message is still and always will be the same. I try to bring clarity to important issues by explaining things in a manner that is easy to decipher and accessible to the layman. I try my best to make it mainly educational and at least partly enjoyable. Obviously, that’s not always the case as money and finance involves some contentious, mundane and tedious concepts. But like you, I am just another person trying to figure out how this complex machine works. I try my best to help connect the dots and focus on what matters.
As I move into 2013 I want to maintain and improve that focus. I want the site to become even more useful for users. So I need some feedback. What would you like to see more of? What would you like to see less of? What can be improved?
PS – Oh, and as the holidays sneak up on us, don’t forget to focus on the things that really matter most in life. Money is not true wealth. And you don’t live to invest. We invest to live. If you spend the next few days obsessing over the markets and money you’re probably not focused on the right things. So sit back and enjoy the next few days. Once next week rolls around you’ll have to start thinking about 2013…..
