May you live in interesting times.
–Chinese curse

That can be good.

And that can be bad.

We seem to be caught up in the eddies of a great transition. These economic, social, and technological forces can toss an individual around. It’s in these interesting times that we are fortunate to have some interesting voices who will help us steer our personal financial ships by offering us advice and issuing us warnings.
