For an #economy to flourish, and create #prosperity for the majority of participants, there must be a strong and vibrant #middleclass. Today's #blog digs into the disappearance of the economic engine.…
The shrinking of the middle class is accompanied by an increase in the share of adults in the upper-income tier from 14% in 1971 to 21% in 2021. At the same time, there was an increase in the share who are in the lower-income tier, from 25% to 29%.… Image
Most importantly, and what is often not included in the analysis, is the standard of living gets “paid for” on an “after-tax” basis. When we include taxation, it becomes clear that roughly 80% of America is failing to support the “middle-class” lifestyle.… Image

13 days until launch.

Picking up from where I left off yesterday.

There are a couple more stories that I wish to tell.

Before I regale my first experience in an electric vehicle.

So please bare with me.

These are all important parts of the Pangea jigsaw...

I studied Economics, Maths and Physics at A-level.

The Physics A-level syllabus in the late 90s was pretty dry.

But we were blessed with an amazing teacher.

Who would teach in tangents.

His stories, insights, and anecdotes were incredibly rich in context and variety.

14 days until launch.

Let's go back to the beginning, the very beginning.

Where did the inspiration for Pangea start?

While at a school desk in a Hong Kong classroom in early 1991.

The first Gulf War created a number of concerning headlines in Asia.

Most shocking of which to my 8 year old self...

...when Iraqi troops started dumping oil into the Persian Gulf to stop a US coalition-led water landing on their shores.

Approximately 4 million barrels of oil.

Creating an oil slick of 4,000 square miles up to five inches thick.

My short protest poem was printed in our school magazine that year.

I can still see the images of birds stuck in the oil slick and the beaches stained black.

#Financial #Literacy begins at home.
Teach your children to save coins, and small notes, inside a locker, or some other toy which imitates a treasure chest.
Once they do that, they will be careful with spending and saving for the rest of their lives.
Awareness matters!
When I was a kid, I remember banks visiting my school to open student #savings accounts.
They used to give students #passbooks, which operated as cheque books.
Parents were cosignatories.
That is how I developed a passion for saving money.
Most of the developing economies fail to grow well because they have a savings crisis!
They need to import #capital from overseas to fund development projects and fix the gap between investment resources.
SE- Asian Nations have done well because of a high domestic #savings rate.

Now is the time to be bullish on #gold #silver and #preciousmetals Many experts like @antonioatanasv @SilverChartist @RealRickRule or @TaviCosta has been bullish on #preciousmetals but I truly believe that NOW is the time!👇🧵 1/15
We are in at the begging of an inflationary decade. January #CPI rising at 7,5%, we need to look at previous inflationary periods like the 40s and the 70s. 2/15
Those periods were very different, at the 40s the governmental debt was high due to #WWII but in the 70s the corporate and private #debt was much important and this effect to the monetary decisions of the #FRED 3/15

Anyone perusing the top articles of major media outlets last weekend would have read several pieces on the extraordinary #shortages being witnessed in the U.S. #economy today, and particularly those in the #labor market.
The tone of many articles was pessimistic, suggesting that the #supply-side #shortages and dislocations may be systemic, or long-term, but we think there’s evidence that the U.S. #economy will display considerably greater dynamism and resilience than the pessimists believe.
First, it’s vital to recognize that this is a #supply constraint problem, not one of #demand. Indeed, strong demand is being driven by a host of powerful influences: 1) household balance sheets never been cleaner and HH #wealth is $25 trillion greater now than pre-Covid level.

When I speak to couples who are weeks away from their solemnisation, many of them admitted that since they got engaged, and as their impending wedding day is around the corner, they have argued A LOT more than usual.

Both parties are feeling the stress of the big day..
Sometimes they’re stressed because of the last minute changes to their event. Sometimes it’s their inability to decide on a matter fast enough.

And sometimes it’s due to outside interference & influence, like family who add on to the pressure of needing to keep everyone happy.
And then there’s money. Fear of not having enough. Working overtime, or double jobs, leading to fatigue, which then opens the door to more unnecessary fights.. and on and on and on..

Here are some tips for couples to consider to reduce the stress they’re facing:

Today’s personal income and consumer spending data for June reaffirm our view that the reopening continues to drive a powerful #restart — and there’s still room to run. 1/4
In the #services sector, particularly #leisure and #hospitality — which bore the brunt of lockdowns and restrictions — the #spending splurge continues as consumers make up for lost time. But spending is still a little more than 3% below its pre-pandemic level in real terms. 2/4
On top, consumers still have a large war chest of accumulated #savings, a good share of which we expect to be deployed over coming quarters, further strengthening the restart. 3/4 Image

Started reading again " Let's talk money" by @monikahalan which explains about money management in indian context. ImageImage
"Our money worries usually centre around finding the best return on investment. But there is a lot more to Financial fitness than just investments. We need a system and not a single-shot solution. "
We worry about investment the way we worry about our weight. Instead of dieting or investing being a habit, we only think of them as remedial measures when our weight or our bank balance goes too high or low.

How to Buy a Car without a Loan? Read on...

1. Get the price of your favorite car (Assume 10 lakhs)
2. Find out what's the EMI payable for that car for 3 years (₹31,336).
3. Start saving that amount and invest it diligently for 3 years
(for people who think #3 it's not possible, imagine that you have already got a loan and imagine that bank is debiting that EMI from your account. Would you be giving any excuses then???)
4. After three years, you would have around ₹13 lakhs (at 10% growth in Index funds).
5. Your choices after 3 years.
(a) Buy your favourite car (new) for the entire amount (₹13 lakhs).
(b) Buy a used car of the same model for half the price and invest the remaining (₹6.5 lakhs)
(c) Buy a used car (luxury), a segment above for the entire amount (₹13 lakhs)
