Money talks and so do I!

with one comment

Firstly, may I welcome you all to Top Dollar News, which is something of an experiment for me as I have zero knowledge of business, dot coms, share prices or anything else really. I do like dining, drinking and shopping – all of which, unfortunately, cost money.

Over the next few months, I am going to try to break down the dreary world of dollars, pounds and euros into a simple language I can understand.

If you are anything like me, your eyes glaze over when people talk about FTSE, the Dow Jones, endowment mortgages, interest rates…. zzzz, I’m making myself fall asleep here. If you AREN’T anything like me, you probably don’t belong here.

The point is that this stuff is really important. Too bad that it’s presented to us in such a fucking boring way that we never work out what it all means until it is too late.

Hopefully, during the course of my experiment one or two of you will be able to explain to me just what it all means.

If it all gets to terribly dull, maybe we can talk about football, movies and beer…which can also make a significant dent in your wallet.
