Tell us a little about why you are interested in philosophy.

I'm a self-trained economist. I study and learn how markets and business really works. I bought my first stock during my Junior year in college. I purchased options during the tech bubble and started shorting options soon after that. I got out of the market when the tech bubble busted and got back into the market during the financial crisis of 2008. The most important lesson that I learned about the stock market is all stocks eventually go to zero. You never want to marry a stock, just date it and remember bulls make money, bears make money and pigs get slaughtered. I'm a Sociologist and Philosopher. I love learning and studying politics and how people and societies change with time. I believe communism and capitalism can work, in theory. The odds that communism will work is low, since you have all your eggs in one basket, so it's doom for corruption and catastrophic failure. Capitalism spreads the risk, so it has a better chance to succeed in the long run.

Introduction

Loving life, I have lived in New York, Michigan and now Texas. Went to GMI and now working at Optimal Electronics in Austin, TX. I have traveled all over the world with extended stays in Ireland, Mexico, Malaysia and Poland.
