DDIntel - Automation, Reverse Engineering, and the Swiss Way

DDIntel - Automation, Reverse Engineering, and the Swiss Way
By DataDrivenInvestor • Issue #46 • View online

Most technologies and productivity tools we grew accustomed to today were solidly in place before Covid-19 hit in 2020. They only became better known during the pandemic. People realized that at times of crisis, critical infrastructure enabled them to continually make a living, and prevented economies from grinding to a halt.
Tech aside, though, what made countries prosper or fail over a long time usually include another set of factors, some of which may not be even obvious, to begin with.
Analyze Singapore, Ireland, and Switzerland, for example, and you will undoubtedly notice something in common. They all have a culture of hard work, perseverance, and self improvement. What is less obvious is how these countries embrace diversity and cooperation at a community level.
Without such positive factors, some countries, such as China, Cambodia, or North Korea, giving them the best technologies will likely take human suffering to a new high. Some of the recent news coming out from these countries are truly incredible and saddening. What determines a country’s long-term trajectory appears to include factors related to culture and institutional design.
This week’s DDIntel focuses on process building, wealth building, with a dose of historical and philosophical observations. You’ll learn about developmental strategies from one of the most successful countries. At a practical level, we covered technologies and tools that help grow your wealth on the stock market - using Python, the best programming language of all. You will learn about how to deal with uncertainty and how to easily beat inflation in the long run.

How To Handle Uncertainty. Wealth Inspiration part 42 | by Building Arks with Jason Clendenen | Aug, 2022 | DataDrivenInvestor
