i just randomly wrote my thoughts down so it might be a bit unstructured
I learned this stuff randomly over the internet in the last 1-2 years so i also don't have a lot of exprience like i said #284. mainly because i don't have much money saved and i need it for uni (not econ) soon so i'll only start investing after i get a real job in 3-5 years, but i have a few resources.
A few books, idk if the link still works, but i'd download the ebooks from libgen because the quality of the books in the link is trash.
Rich dad poor dad
the intelligent investor
the millionaire next door
the millionaire fastlane
the richest man of babylon
How to Win Friends and Influence People
tbf I only read some of these books but heard good things about them,
Rich dad poor dad and the millionaire next door have been more about getting the right mindset so pretty basic, idk how much you need them, i want to read the millionaire fastlane next because its kinda opposite to the millionaire next door.
Another thing is that you need to have a good income to save enough money to invest, so if don't have a good carreer and/or don't want to move to USA/Switzerland (only countries where you can build wealth as an employee with some but only few exceptions), you might start to look into starting your own business, whatever this might be (brick and mortar store might be a solid option actually).
I kinda fell in love with real estate because it truly has a lot of advantages, but its viability is really dependant on where you live (idk about uk). Sources:
YT-Graham Stephan, his videos are actually legit and give a good overview and insight into the topics.
- wide range of questions about things you perhaps haven't considered yet
perhaps grant cardone, i wouldn't buy his stuff but maybe he talks about some interesting stuff and makes you think big
not really relevant for uk, but generally analysing the potential of neighborhoogs is a huge deal in re investing.
But after all, the best thing about having money is freedom
or to dream big and feel small at the same time
idk if you really asked for personal finance or the economy in general, but it was nice for me to revise all that stuff again but anyways still lots of useful information
if you're looking for macroeconomics i'd look at Keynesian economics
and the austrian school for two different approaches to economics.
my favourite newspaper is nzz.ch
but it's in german
really opened my eyes about how fucked the euro and germany is but it's also in german :/
on yt the money gps is interesting imo. very one-sided, but not false, reporting. He talks a lot about debt, and it's true that many countries (cough italy), companies and people are in too much debt despite the good economy. In combination with low interest rates the next recession can be really rough
