My interest in investing was heavily influenced by my father. As a youth, my father decided the war in Iraq was something our family should pay attention to, he’d bring the Everett Herald home and encourage my brother and I to read about the progress of the war. I read the pages and participated in the dinner time discussions about the progress.
My true passion and discovery was the relationship between the war happening on the front pages and the capitalists and investors profits being documented on the back pages where the stock price quotes were listed. Fast forward a couple of decades and I realized the true value in how that activity changed my world view and interest in the economy.
