I’m too busy to post regularly so subscribe at your own risk. New posts will be shorter and of a lower quality than those written in the past. I’m considering using this mainly to write about what I think will happen in the future - it is less time consuming, more fun, and will give me a way to publicly log my predictions so I can either say “I told you so” or look like an idiot. That said, I may post on any topic.

Things I believe:

Within ten years it will become evident that humans are going to live a lot longer than anyone currently thinks is possible (this has massive long term economic implications).

Technological progress is exponential.

Groups that benefit from war include: Politicians, Media, Energy Companies, Military Industrial Complex.

All roads lead to cloud providers and semiconductors - these two trends will last for more than a decade and might take us straight through to the realization of true artificial general intelligence (AGI).

Truly driverless cars probably won’t get here much before AGI.

Aging is curable.

The Synths are coming.

Less government is better.

Free speech should be absolute.

Mention of any specific company, ETF, investment strategy, etc. should not be taken as a recommendation to buy or sell. Investing is not a one size fits all game - each situation is unique. Markets are risky, and the companies I mention - like all companies - can go to zero!
