I have decided to shut the Daily Capitalist down and this is our last post. I have been publishing this blog for 5 years and, as they say, it’s fun until it isn’t. Think of a blog like a newspaper where readers expect new content every day. That takes quite a bit of time and it has squeezed a lot of things out of my life. Now it’s time to get them back. While readership is good and there is lots to say, I need to move on.
As you know, I am not in the financial business, and I don’t make money from the blog. Our sole purpose was to explain economics and finance through “Austrian” eyes and demonstrate through forecasts and analysis that Austrian economics is the best way to interpret that world. And, guess what: it works!
I have many regrets about this and the decision did not come easily. But, I can now reclaim my life and focus more on my own affairs and my other goals in life. Yes, I still have goals even at my advanced state of decrepitude. There is a book out there somewhere—when I find the time. I will also eventually have some kind of blog on which I will publish occasional rants. I’ll let you know.
We have been fortunate to have a number of fine Austrian-oriented financial analysts, investors, and investment managers contribute to the site. All in all, I am quite proud of our group and the high quality of our articles. I hope you have felt the same.
Thank you, dear reader, for subscribing and reading our commentary. I’ve enjoyed your comments and ideas and you always kept me on my toes. I’ve been asked where you can go to find similar commentary. I am a fan of Zero Hedge and Mish’s Global Economic Trend Analysis. They both have an Austrian bent to their writing and do an excellent job. I may occasionally contribute to Zero Hedge. Our other writers have been invited to contribute commentary to Zero Hedge so you may find them there as well.
Goodbye for now and thanks for reading us.
