Episode 30: Don’t Bet Your Entire Farm on Commodities

Christopher Tan

Important note: In the investment world, for every exciting story that you hear, there will be an equal and opposite view to it. Nobody knows for sure which view is correct, the only people who know for sure what they are getting out of, are the financial salespeople trying to convince you to take up these investment schemes.
