Democratizing Finance

Hello Real Vision Exchange,

I wanted to share something with all of you. Over the past year and a half I have been learning a lot of macro content and basically, every single resource or indicator that I have come across, I have saved. When I read a report, I go through all the source material and collect all the data sources so I can do my own work. I basically have all of these in a spreadsheet which is what I work off of every day. Some resources are good, some are decent and some don't work that well. This macro paradigm spreadsheet is still a work in process for me because I update it daily.

After watching a video by Chamath Palihapitiya (, I was inspired to share this spreadsheet. It's not the most amazing thing in the world but it's what I work off of every single day and I think information should be available for everyone. There should be an even starting line for everyone. Perhaps you are way ahead of me and don't need any of this information. But perhaps you are just getting into macro and this will be helpful.

Several Things about the spreadsheet:

  • There are errors or redundant things. It's a work in process
  • Everything is basically links to different resources and datasets that are free. There are some things that are paid subscriptions but a very small minority.
  • I have more things that I can share in the future but they... (More)

Ahh my live RV interview feed dropped!

Can't seem to get the sound back on but it sounded like there were some questions on how one would play this concept. I am rather intrigued but very ignorant to the specifics and how to look into getting exposure. Please let me know if anyone has some additional thoughts or insight  =)

Very informative video: "Why making chips is so hard"

I thought this was a fascinating explanation of the microprocessor industry. It's amazing how ASML in Holland is now so critical to the global supply chain. The global economy is becoming less anti-fragile as technology becomes more complex and concentrated due to 2 factors: The scarcity of people with the knowledge to make all of this stuff, and the vast quantities of capital required to manufacture cutting edge chips.
