Reason and Honesty

10 02 2010

Hello world! This is the first post on this blog; hopefully it’s not the last. The reason I’ve created this blog is to keep track of my investments/my investment philosophy. If I have to support and defend my investment decisions from the entire world, maybe I’ll make some decent decisions. Now time for the two guiding principles/rules of this blog:

1.)  Reason. Reason is man’s sole means of knowledge. Emotions are an important aspect of human life, but they will not be a factor in my investment decisions.

2.) Honesty. To quote Ayn Rand (which I expect to do often): “Honesty is the recognition of the fact that the unreal is unreal and can have no value…” If I am not brutally honest about my investments and my level of knowledge, my returns will suffer.

I hope you enjoy the blog.
