Here's Journal Club 12-09-22! Every week, I hold a JOURNAL CLUB. After filtering through the articles on the web, I present a few that impacted my life this week. Be safe and stay well!
- What is the key to having a well-rounded portfolio? According to The White Coat Investor, it's essential to “pay close attention to the four deep risks while designing your portfolio, where each component is able to perform reasonably well no matter what uncertainties may lie ahead.” The author talks more about asset allocation and a particular investment category to include in your portfolio in the article – I Bonds and TIPS: Which Inflation-Indexed Bond Should You Buy Now?
- More often than not, we see this similar theme among people who are pursuing financial independence wishing they had known about the FI movement years or decades ago. Per the author of Cutting Through Chaos, many people fail to notice the opportunities to pursue financial independence sooner in life simply because they weren't curious enough to dig deeper. Interesting thought, isn't it? The author shares more about it in the article – Why didn't I discover financial independence earlier in life?
- As you may already know, the Federal Reserve has raised the interest rates 5 times in 2022. Rising inflation and a looming recession have been a common concern for us this year. However, according to the author of Afford Anything, it may not be a good idea to “assume the next recession will resemble the conditions of 2008”, as there are various factors that come into play. Curious to find out what this means for you? The author talks more about it in the article – Are We In A Recession?
- “What did success mean to you as a kid? And how has it changed as you grew older? Do you associate success with having flashy things and an extra large bank account or does it mean something beyond the traditional definition of success?” The One Frugal Girl asks these fascinating questions and reflects on what success looks like to her and how it has evolved over the years in the article – What Does Success Look Like and How Does It Feel?
