Re: Investments Trade Log

That's a good insight shemp, will be interesting to follow if any of those that cut dividend and claim to be wanting to shift towards cleaner solutions (RDS and Equinor come to mind) will go down this path.

Re: Investments Trade Log

What is your view on big oil as a long term investment (for dividends) at current prices? I don't see oil going away anytime soon; the shift away from fossil fuels will be gradual and the big companies will try to adapt.

Re: 58yo perma-traveler, retired at 38yo

OP, if you don't mind sharing, do you finance your ongoing expenses exclusively from passive income (dividend, bond interest, selling stock)? If that's the case you seem to be one of the few on this forum that actually manages to live solely off capital without side hustles.

Re: PoorButWealthy's Journal

Congratulations, your numbers are truly impressive considering your age. The journal is an inspiring read. I hope you don't mind me asking if you're based in Norway? I was going to guess you're based in Sweden based on your expenses but then the income numbers look a bit high for that - at least bas...

Re: Which programming language for this?

Alternatively, they're there to provide/generate the training set for the [existing] model. My thinking exactly. I know places where they outsource efforts of similar type to teams in other countries via custom built tooling. Usually the tools will assign the same task to multiple different people ...

@J_ redistribution of wealth in Scandivania does not work as well as one might think. For Sweden: https://marginalrevolution.com/marginal ... weden.html.

Re: FI in Sweden

Hi, congratulations on the progress, your expenses are quite impressive. Given the cost of your rent I assume you either live on the outskirts of a larger city or in a smaller city/town. I do not see home insurance (which for us is ~$160/yr) in your calculations. Also, given the ultra-low interest r...

Re: Does anyone ever think about the inflation equation when they're young ?

After skimming over the title of the post I was sure you meant whether we ever think why most (nearly all?) popular books/articles/blogs/etc. subtract inflation from nominal return to get the real return (i.e. why r=n-i ) when logic tells us that we should have been dividing (i.e. r=(1+n)/(1+i)-1 )....

Re: the animal's journal

I've become really interested in developing a strong skill set lately (much more than before) so that my output can get as low as possible whenever I decide to settle down. The major interests right now are hunting, fishing, foraging and small machine repair. And I guess I'm trying to learn more ab...
