P1 - capitalism comes in many flavors. The one practiced in US is ruthless, cut throat, lacking compassion and humanity, and designed for the benefit of rich while giving masses this carrot that they too could make it but only very few do. There is something wrong with the picture when a company lays off thousands of people who make peanuts while the CEO rakes in millions. Or when millions spent by Wall Street have more influence over how government manages financial markets than your or mine puny votes

^maybe so but can you blame people for wanting to understand it and get in on the action so they can provide for their future families?

I have a few buddies that have pretty much decided to live as lean as possible through their 20s and have bought up a few houses to turn into rentals/flips. One of them is clearing about 3k extra after mortgage/expenses etc with little time commitment.

Do you want to learn how to pick stocks, or just how to invest/save/spend wisely?

The Intelligent Investor by Benjamin Graham (Warren Buffet's mentor)

OP - I suggest investment in tangible assets makes more sense stocks whose prices are mostly driven by machine trades and inside info

*more sense than stocks

I'm more looking at invest/save rather than day trading. I have no interest in daily monitoring more in long term investments

Rich Dad Poor Dad. Not specific to Wall St, but conveys strong financial guidance

The Intelligent Investor by Benjamin Graham - forced to read it in a Finance class but was surprisingly good

Thanks, BA1. I see the world very differently, but I appreciate that you took the time to explain your perspective
