>>1012962 No it's not surprising. Honestly most people lived a life not dissimilar to slavery until a few centuries ago, where amassing wealth were of little concern (because it was basically impossible).
I don't see why these sorts of people would be good at not squandering what little they have.
Hey /biz/ OP here from the /personalfinancehorrorstories/ thread.
I really want to become a financial advisor. So far i've been studying for the series 65, along with reading a few books on personal finance, investing, and economics.
Ideally i'd like to open my own firm, helping people get their personal finances on track and helping them plan for the future. I see a market here, because many people are really clueless. I've already got a fee schedule in mind, as well as a few marketing strategies to help get the firm off the ground.

They'll die soon unless they find a way to get in on that digital distribution, or some new console comes out that requires physical copy only, but I don't see that happening, so yes, they will die, not sure about 2020, but before 2030 for sure, will face same fate as Blockbuster.
>>1012856 They'll stay around for at least the next ten years. ISP's are being assholes by capping data transfers and throttling connections, so downloading a 100gb game isn't always super practical. It's a lot easier to bring a disc to a friend's house than it is to wait several hours for a game to download. Also physical media allows for a used games market.
Mine: >Never taught me ANYTHING about personal finance/investing/markets, etc >Said meme shit like "You need to be a genius with a million dollars to invest!" when I told them what I learned about investing and tried to talk to them about it >Constant nagging raised my cortistol and subsequently lowered my testosterone
>Investing is risky business! >Investing your money is for people who already have a lot! >The stockmarket is rigged >The stockmarket is random and completely unpredictable, so it's best not to bother >I play computer games >I just keep my money in my savings account, that way it collects interest and I can save up! >Saving for retirement? Haha i don't plan to be alive that long. >I'm too young/old to start a business >I do not listen to Maybach music >All the good business ideas were taken already >All the smart products or services were already invented before me >____? Nah that's nonsense! Just get a regular job ya dummy! >Anon, you need to pay for us when we're older, we raised you afterall >Cmon bro lend me $100, i need it to buy more Vemma, trust me it will make us earn MILLIONS >Reinvesting your profits? That's retarded, why earn money if i don't spend it on fun? >Live within my means?

I'm done all my reading! >I play videogames lol it's fun!
I have a question: wouldn't it make sense to have a regular job (or a business; working for yourself can be harder even if it isn't as demeaning most of the time) AND make my money work for me, so I have an employment history?
It's been so long since they started talking about raising rates. I remember last fall when it was "imminent." The market has had so long to prepare for it that I can't imagine it'll hurt anything. It's the sign of a healthy growing economy but it's certainly a little scary to see if we're ready or not.
>>1012793 It's supposed to be a signal that we are growing our economy if we are raising rates.
Increasing rates reigns in inflation ... yet we are seeing deflation. Housing is slowing, stocks are down, oil is down. Caterpillar hasn't shown an increase in revenue in like 3 years. Baltic-dry index is falling. Employment participation rate for working age males in the US is at an all time low.
I believe they had to raise rates to keep any kind of credibility. They've talked a good economy for a while... Comment too long. Click here to view the full text.
What's the best way to buy bitcoin in Europe? I'm looking preferably for somewhere I can use a card to buy them. I'm not sure if Europe has better resources than America or not. Also general bitcoin thread I guess.
