Yesterday my hubs sheepishly admitted something to me…
he didn’t understand how stocks worked.
I was shocked. Not because he didn’t know, but because he thought he magically should have.
Honestly this is a man who has been a pilot since his teens and is a flight engineer in the military. If he would have asked me “how do you think planes fly” I would explain it something like this cartoon:
He only knows what he has been taught, just as I do. Luckily I got classes in college that taught about how stocks (and the economy and trade agreements) work.
This video is what I showed my husband and what I think is the best 45 minuets you can spend to learn about finance and investing. William Ackman and Think Big made this easy to understand lesson to demystify how company’s work and how you can invest into them and earn money from them.
