04 Oct Financial Independence – What’s The Point?
Posted at 15:45h in Book, Financial Independence, FIRE By Vicki Robin
Just to be clear… I’m not retired. I don’t intend to retire. I don’t want to stop working. I want to work for things I care about, on things that interest me, until I die. Like Thoreau, “…I wish to live deliberately…I want to live deep and suck out all the marrow of life… and not, when I came to die, discover that I had not lived.”
Yet I’m identified with the FIRE movement (financial independence retire early) – that’s grown up around Your Money or Your Life, the book I coauthored in 1992 with Joe Dominguez. I’ve been called the “guru” of this movement, yet I’ve come to believe that there is a poison pill in the very name of it.

Chattels Kirk H. Sowell @UticaRisk I'd caution against a positive assumption about "independent"/"technocrat" ministers. The five "technocrats" elected in Abadi's 2016 shuffle have been pretty unexceptional. In fact one of them, Ann Awfi, presided over the Basra water poisoning crisis that destroyed Abadi. https://twitter.com/UticaRisk?lang=en
chattels Kirk H. Sowell @UticaRisk This is not to say that Awfi was totally to blame for that; corruption in customs and visas, as well as security problems, all handled by other ministries, were to blame for wrecking the clean water project. But simply having "independent" ministers won't solve problems. https://twitter.com/UticaRisk?lang=en
chattels Kirk H. Sowell @UticaRisk Back to the "independents/technocrats" point - the next issue of #InsideIraqiPolitics will have an article overviewing how things went for Abadi's 2016 "technocrat" shuffle. This will be essential background for what is to come since "independents" are in vogue right now. https://twitter.com/UticaRisk?lang=en
