Book

Building a second brain

The amount of information coming at us daily is only increasing. As knowledge workers we need a process for organising, storing and accessing that information. Tiago Forte's ideas have had a huge influence on how I consume, process and use knowledge. I took Tiago's course earlier this year and cannot recommend highly enough the ideas in this book. It's more than just another productivity system, it's a guide to surviving and thriving in the information age. Read more.

Data

Visualising the three different types of inflation

Much of the economic talk at the moment is about inflation. But inflation is more complex than just prices going up in shops. This excellent, short, visualisation from the Visual Capitalist looks at the three different ways inflation and its effects show up in the financial and economic system; monetary inflation, consumer price inflation and asset price inflation. A worthwhile reminder.
