Terrain map

Postings cover various aspects of personal economics, particularly as they are influenced by psychology and human behavior.  I look for things that I think matter to young persons who want to be successful.  And like the Mississippi, coverage is broad but not too deep.

This site is not about generating hype, froth, or “buzz.”  It’s about providing honest information and guidance.  If you find yourself fondling your e-device like a worry stone, nervously awaiting the next post, this is probably not the best site for you.  If, however, you find value in what you read at YPGBlog, I’d appreciate you forwarding a link to your friends.  Thank you.

What are the BIG questions?

Topic selections for this blog are guided by three major questions:

  • Does each generation have to figure it out for themselves?
  • Is learning life’s lessons the hard way, the only way?
  • How can young persons make smarter life-choices?

Topics that interest you

This site examines the crossroads of psychology and personal economics.  That is, how we think affects our perceptions, our behavior, and our long-term well-being.  We’ll also learn about reality as it exists, not as we wish it to be.  Ultimately, it’s about acquiring wisdom, forming the conscious habit of making smart life-choices, and living the kind of life you want to live!

The YPGBlog page has a list of recently posted articles.


In his Poor Richard’s Almanack, American statesman Ben Franklin writes, “Experience keeps a dear school, but fools will learn at no other.”  What Dr. Franklin means is that learning solely by experience can be a painful way to discover what not to do.

Of course, you’re too smart for that.  Instead, you’ll want to avoid many of life’s scraped knees (and worse) by following YPGBlog updates.  New articles are periodically posted.  Sign up for our free, low-key email alerts and you’ll never miss a beat!
