Natures Solace:

“Take a course in good water and air; and in the eternal youth of Nature you may renew your own. Go quietly, alone; no harm will befall you.” – John Muir

The 2020 Election and Investing
Politics and investing have always been spoken about in the same breath.  Market commentators, and even presidents, have linked the performance of the stock market as a sort of barometer of a presidents effectiveness. The data doesn’t support this link, and investors would be wise to think critically before making investment decisions. Long−term performance of the market has shown almost no relationship with government policies. Instead, the key drivers of stock market performance have proven to be earnings and economic growth. Join us for a discussion of 10 truths no matter who wins.
