A blog written for those whose interests more or less match mine.

Consumerist suggests: “Brush up on these skills.”

Interesting post at the Consumerist: 10 skills for the post-financial apolypse. The first few:

10. Food Preservation. Learn to preserve fruits and vegetables for the long winter. Make beef jerky! It’s healthy and fun.

9. Risk Management. Wikipedia says, “Financial risk management is the practice of creating economic value in a firm by using financial instruments to manage exposure to risk, particularly Credit risk and market risk.” Apparently, there is a need for people to learn how to do this.

8. Learn A Second Language. It’s a global economy, boys and girls. Time to learn to communicate!

7. Cooking. The days of getting take out every single night are over. You must learn to cook, and by cook, we mean “Prepare nutritious meals at a reasonable price.” You will probably not need to own any saffron.
