Investments should be win-win

December 1, 2023 (1y ago)

The thing to remember about investments is that - in the long run - no one does well until everyone does well.

Whatever asset you are holding is only valuable if you can sell it to someone else. And you cannot sell it to anyone else if you’re the only one holding all the wealth.

Distribution and circulation of money are central to a healthy economy. Hoarding is short-term, non-productive, and eventually futile.

Getting the general population to see it that way, and giving them the confidence to actually stop hoarding and start buying and selling is an important goal of governance - and none of this happens unless you inspire confidence through consistency and continuity of policy that survives political transitions.
