$XXII @badtyming Problem is that you think making money is related to your views on politics. That's where it "begins" and it's only one small component. You can be 100% right and still lose money. Trading with money risked to make money is an entirely different game than analysis or posting opinions. Why do you think there's so many high IQ academics and professors with phds in economics, business, finance, etc. that are poor as hell? Same applies to journalists, analysts (even CFA/MBA holders), or even quants (who make money off math/coding and not capital allocation and risk taking).
