In this episode, Michael takes a moment to reflect on the Ukraine War. He mentions that it is hard to discuss personal finance when there is a war going on in Europe. He talks about luck and the impact that that has on one's FIRE journey.
He mentions that it has become difficult to try to forecast investment returns over the next number of years and this makes planning for early retirement nearly impossible. He touches on interest rates and the impact this will have on housing, as well as speculates on what might happen in the economy over the next year or two.
