    Excellent perspective, Useful framework. Where else can we get such a broad perspective on the various niches of finance/investment.

    I liked this piece and found what he had to say was clear and well thought out. Except, for a smart guy he seems to see the world as 100% the USA. US family offices don't invest in ROW?

    I like the different point of view on different asset allocations, and perspective on gold. If I wanted to hear pro-gold all the time, there's plenty of other places I could find that.

    Re: Gold and an apocalyptic collapse…let’s say I’ve already stocked up on ammo, food, etc, shouldn’t I also hold part of my portfolio in physical gold? IMO it will always be the premier currency.

    Plumbing, farming...nice to be reminded that fortunes aren't just made by writing code. And that those of us from the South aren't quite the hillbilly's trad. media would have you believe.

    Basically just says that very rich people shouldn't spend their money like frivolous smucks, and they should take into consideration that they have a limited amount of money...........great to know
