FL092 – New Year, Minimalism and Stock Market Hysteria

hongkong-nye-fireworks

In this episode of Freedom Lovin‘ podcast I comment discuss an article from James Altucher about living with nothing.

The article covers the differences between having a home and renting one, how other people mold their lives around their objects and not their experiences, and difficulties and expenses of living minimal and much more.

I also commented about the hysteria of the stock market of the last few days, and how the mainstream has lost their minds.

I hope you enjoy!
