Have you considered urban design and planning? There are several graduate courses available in my city for people from any background any it seems like an ease, yet socially prestigious role that pays well and has low levels of competition. Plus, I'd imagine that over a career you'd become an expert at navigating your city and just life in general while having political power without exposure to all the downsides that generally come with being a politician.

Or get a job as a truck driver, be spit upon by society and thought of as a worthless degenerate by everyone on the road. Sure you will get paid hansomly for the job nobody wants, sure without the truckdrivers department store shelves would be barren. go ahead and take a job where you get recognised for the things you do for years to come when you could be out there earning an honest living.

So what kind of investments do you usually screw with? I've been messing with emerging market equity last few years.

Modern Mom 14/12/18(Thu)03:52 No. 2502 ID: 8448af

ETFs, have a bunch of Vanguard and some other crap like high-dividend and real estate.

Got about $450 from 4,5k in what, 2 years now? The fucking real estate is dragging me down bad, but at least it pays good dividends. Otherwise, everything's been going up.

Modern Mom 14/12/25(Thu)03:00 No. 2512 ID: d92ae4

no, but I do have a roth IRA with Vanguard and it is doing wonders with my savings. Shame these days a bank or certified deposit is just a way to burn money.

Is the share trading negligibly skill based?

Goldman sachs does proprietary trading. Banks trade. Banks have supercomputers. Banks have lots of experts on one, orchestrated team. Banks have the resources to 'simulate' individual traders and the market power to dominate any amount of private wealth. Unless an individual has access to privileged information and can dodge authorities who regulate against them, how can it ever be rational to trade in the share market?

Some good advice:
At suburban garage sales?: Go for USB. Check for 3.0 and haggle down.

Online Currency/Amazon?: Pick up some of the now dated 32gb class 10 tf cards. Easy to hide and store safely.

Have money for bulk?: Pick up some office desktops (the mini towers are great if you find them at auctions. Most 'refurbished' online are a dice roll.) Set up a server with 2-4, ~500gb per unit on average. Last one I found was 1.5tb for $125 but it needed maintenance.

How do I get a loan with no credit? I need to buy land and I need about 13 large to do it.

I'm saving money but it won't be quick enough. Any tips at all? Yes, yes, selling drugs is nice but I'd like something else.

you need to establish credit it is not hard. Get a secured credit card from a credit union. It was 6 months before I had a score high enough to buy my first house. $500 down and they gave it back after 6 months.

Modern Mom 14/12/15(Mon)01:29 No. 2500 ID: e98585

Is this land out in the country? USDA loans have low standards and help if it is outside city limits or zoned farming.

Just increase your speech skill with the ring of dexterity. You can practically beat the game using only speech.

Haha. Comrades. Been doing that in Australia for a couple of years. Going to look for a long term squat when I'm done hitchhiking around. Another six months or so.

if i was you, move to a warm country and then squat there forever, preferably syria

Requesting full story.

When did you started, why, how was your life before?
Places you visited, how's the experience in general, what have you learned, how do you access the internet, what have you learned.

What's the best and the worst about it, how do you survive, nice tricks you learned.

And more importantly: cool stories from your wanderings.

These generally will give you a little something to put into a Paypal account if you're persistent enough.

Stuff like MySurvey and Opinion Outpost are easier to sign up for but don't pay out as well or as consistently. You might get a few surveys that you get partway through only to realize you don't qualify for them (mostly by being the wrong demographic). However, Opinion Outpost sometimes gives referrals to Pinecone Research, which is a good one to get with because those surveys pay better and more consistently when they show up.

Most of these will give you online points that they encourage you to use in their online store, but the best deal is to cash them out into Paypal deposits. If you converted the points to dollars and compared what else is in their stores you'd realize that they're charging full retail price for most of that stuff, and paying full retail price is for suckers.

The poorest may now in certain ways enjoy what the richest a century ago could not have commanded, but this does not show improvement of condition so long as the ability to obtain the necessaries of life is not increased. The beggar in a great city may enjoy many things from which the backwoods farmer is debarred, but that does not prove the condition of the city beggar better than that of the independent farmer.

But they already do, why should people who work hard have to pay for Tyrone and Jamal who like to smoke weed and hang out with their baby mama?

Why should people who never bothered to obtain a skillset be provided for? Are we not then just rewarding laziness?

Modern Mom 14/09/27(Sat)02:13 No. 2353 ID: 2d2aff

If the middle class made more money, they would then pay taxes... It doesn't matter who pays taxes... A stronger middle class creates a larger and consumerist economy, a stronger one. Most super rich hold onto their money where it sits.. Forever. They are useless and will continue to horde wealth indefinitely. It will only get worse and creates less opportunity for all of us.

Why reward heirs and the super-rich who have more money than they ever can spend?
They're living in a bubble where they can buy success.

Lesser of two evils, in that scenario. The access to money to keep somebody afloat could be the one thing steering a person down on their luck away from crime. Apart from a chance, and not a certainty, of getting miserable work for peanuts due to a shit economy. Hipsters are about the only people that enjoy being poor, and they seem to have phased back into whatever secret place they came from so suddenly.
Also, it doesn't help the system by tossing the baby out with the bathwater; in the event that somebody loses their job, and hits a spiral of poverty instead of staying afloat long enough to find another one. No government, to my knowledge, has found a perfect system of somehow perfectly distributing money to those who "really deserve" it.

Generally it's worth contributing the small fraction of paid tax to this, to spare people the alternative. If a country as shitty and socially nihilistic as America does it, there's obviously a reason.
