Over the past couple of weeks we’ve been working around to some of the deep, dark secrets of how the economy really works. The stuff that doesn’t make it into the 5-o’clock news shows. The one that explains how, rather simply, the Fed can print money like a house afire, and still not have inflation running through the roof. All fine theory, of course. But what’s the point, right?
This morning you’re going to learn to think in an unconventional way about what I call “The America Platform.” Just like major software management tools, we can look at our own future, and that of “The America Platform,” with the same mindset as a software implementation team on a BPR project (business process re-engineering). In this sense, “financial prepping” is a series of “use cases” in software design. Or, you could considers it a personal financial stress test.
After some coffee, we’ll wrap it all up and make soup of it. Included is a PowerPoint that you can share with your spouse and family members, too, if you’re so inclined.
If all goes well, you’ll nail the future, instead of t’other way around; the way your you get “nailed.” After coffee and headlines, as is our custom.
Reader Note: If you don’t have PowerPoint for this morning’s slide show (and worksheets) you can download OpenOffice free and use the compatible presentation tool there.
