In challenging situations, I try to find the good. I do believe that there is always a good outcome somewhere, even if it’s hard to see.

The Federal Reserve’s reduction of “monetary easing”, or economic stimulus, is going to be a hot button topic for the financial media throughout much of the first quarter of 2022.

Friday Thoughts

A month ago, I wrote about the challenges that I saw facing the financial markets this fall and winter. I’ve written more about the political turmoil in Washington and the supply chain issues and the ensuing inflationary pressures.
