I'm of the belief that the '00's weren't so bad. It was certainly full of significant challenges, but personally was a wonderful period of time. 10 years ago I was a missionary in San Diego. I returned home, lived in college with some of my best friends, graduated from college, married my wife, had two kids (with one on the way), and survived a major economic crisis. I can't really complain.
Here is some good information to get you started in the '10's:
- If you are wealthy, this may be the year to die. Witness the perverse incentives created by our beloved Congress.
- This is a very interesting look at how a massive insider-trading case came into existence.
- Apparently some people really don't like our calendar system. Whatever.
