Let’s Go Exploring! Merida and Cuzama: Cenotes, Where Have You Been All My Life?

This post was supposed to be about one of my favourite countries in the world, second only to Thailand (hint: it has lots of robots), but since a few readers asked about Central/South America, I’m going to fast forward this week just to give you a taste… *** After going back home to visit family for Christmas, we wondered where we should go next. It was tempting to go back to Asia, but since we had a busy year ahead of us (going to conferences, speaking at the Chautaquas, and attending my best friend’s wedding) keeping us in (or near) […]

Investment Workshop 22: Interest Rates and Bonds

Hello again and welcome back to the Millennial Revolution Investment Workshop! New readers, please click here to start from the beginning. Status Before we begin, I thought I’d give a fun little update on how our portfolios are doing. When I logged into my trading accounts to calculate our next round of buy orders, I realized that after adding up capital gains from rising stock markets and distributions from dividends and bond interest, we have now made about $100 in each account! We made this workshop free because we believe knowledge of how to invest should be a human right and […]

How to Travel the World with School-Aged Kids

Whenever we go home to visit, there’s one type of person who annoys me the most. And no, it’s not the Home-Boners who keep telling us we’re idiots for not buying a house.

You should try it sometime. Anyhoo… So the type of people who piss me off the most when we go back home are… Parents. Specifically nosy parents who complain incessantly about all the work […]

Why We Write

I know we have a lot of fun on this blog, but don’t let the “change the world music” on our video and naïve Millennial “I can do anything” optimism fool you. The goal of the Millennial Revolution is to talk about money in a fun and accessible way, with a whole lot of swearing and dick jokes thrown in. If you read through our insane ramblings and have a quick laugh, our job is done. If you actually LEARNED something from us, that would be a bonus. And if somebody were to actually CHANGE their situation, CHANGE their life […]

Investment Workshop 21: Inflation II: This Time it’s PERSONAL

Hello again and welcome back to the Millennial Revolution Investment Workshop! New readers, please click here to start from the beginning. After last week’s distraction, it’s now time to return back to the topic of Inflation. We last discussed it 2 weeks ago when we did an article on macroeconomic inflation. Recall that macroeconomic inflation is what newspapers talk about when they refer to “Inflation.” But how is it measured, and how does it actually affect your day-to-day life? Inflation is measured using the CPI, or Consumer Price Index. Basically, this is a basket of goods that the government makes […]
