IF YOU OWN STOCKS YOU CAN'T REALLY CALL THIS A DECLINE, CAN YOU?:
Interview: Aaron Clarey Talks Bachelor Pad Economics (Ed Driscoll, February 23rd, 2014, PJ Media)
Posted by Orrin Judd at February 25, 2014 6:50 PMIs it possible to enjoy America's decline from your swank bachelor's pad, knowing that you're financially prepared to ride out the worst of the remaining years of the Obama era? Yes we can, shouts Clarey, the self described "Captain Capitalist" and "the only motorcycling, fossil-hunting, tornado-chasing, book-writing, ballroom-dancing, economist in the world," in Bachelor Pad Economics. Clarey's new book brings financial planning to the themes of his previous title, last year's Blogosphere hit, Enjoy the Decline.During our nearly 19-minute long interview, Aaron will explore:● The only source of happiness in a period of national decline.● What is the chief underlying cause of American decline?● The importance of minimalism as a financial strategy.● How did Aaron make the jump from financial analyst to new-media maven?● How to survive the higher-education bubble.● What role does real estate play in Bachelor Pad Economics?● What is the infamous "Smith & Wesson Retirement Plan"?
