I mentioned earlier about finding a focus for this blog, as all the most successful ones have a singular focus. In this regard, I have chosen to focus in on Canadian matters, both financial and political. I'll still be checking out the money-making myths, of course (only $1.50 so far from the surveys, by the by), but the majority of my posting will be thoughts on our government as well as taxes and the economy. My blog will, for the time being, retain its current name of Lost Scholar, as I'm rather attached to it, but will have this newfound focus.
Unfortunately, this probably means no more comparing Pokemon to KFC... Okay, maybe once in a while. :)
As another note, though I will be writing this from a Canadian perspective (I can't really do it any other way), I encourage other nationalities to look on through. Some things, if I go into taxes or whatnot, probably won't apply to you, however we are becoming more and more a global economy: ACTA (if it unfortunately passes), NAFTA, the British Commonwealth, the UN, the WTO, most multinationals, Canada is more widely involved in global economies than likely any other country. Economics here reflect upon or are reflected upon by the world markets.
And since this post was rather bland, here's a fun economics tidbit: More oil comes to the United States from Canada than from the Middle East. I've got a google search bar right above this post if you don't believe me.
