“The best time to plant a tree was 20 years ago. The second best time is now.” - Chinese Proverb

Recap: Excellent intro tutorials on the Hedgeye process, as well as the financial system in general. Throw in Dalio’s how the economic machine works, and you’ll have learned 10 years of finance in a couple of hours.
Comment: Learning about finance and investing can be intimidating. This free learning kit provides an excellent baseline to get you started.
