There’s something you need to know about fairness…

One criticism of financial independence I sometimes see is that we FIers don’t realise how lucky we are and how privileged our upbringing has been. This may sometimes be true…but often not in the way that the commenter meant. For example, I never inherited any money, never went to an elite private school, never got a […]

Interviews
