What does “staying safe” mean during times like this?       

During the coronavirus pandemic, you probably have heard the term “stay safe” more frequently than normal. Under ordinary conditions, we generally can depend more on others to help us maintain our safety (after all, that is what we pay for with our precious tax money). However, with a lot of pressure on the resources of fire departments, medical teams, and the police departments right now, more responsibility rests on us to “stay safe.” Learning how to survive in isolation becomes a necessity for many. In particular, wearing masks and keeping clear of viral threats during this #crisis is your own personal duty to yourself.

I would like to share with you a passage from my last book on survival, The Survival of the Richest. Hopefully, this message will save lives:

“…I don’t believe that it is in someone’s best interest to implement survival skills while investing all of her or his efforts in the hope of an unknown party possibly saving the day. To be clear, in many survival situations, it may be an ideal conclusion to be rescued. However, a safer proposition is to learn how to survive without being dependent on unknown external factors. After all, who will save you if the hero never shows up? The only person who will always be available (even if badly injured) in any survival situation is the potential survivor” (Criniti, 2016, p. 13).

Stay safe!

In these challenging times, it is important to recognize the value of companionship; which was listed in The Survival of the Richest book as a secondary physical immediate survival essential (Criniti, 2016, p. 101). So many survivors of great tragedies in history have ranked loneliness as their top issue along with hunger and thirst. To be happy, we need people like we need air. This will also be the great lesson for the world of this current major event.

Super cool letter from one of the founding fathers of the science of finance, Harry Markowitz.  Harry’s article called Portfolio Selection in 1952 began the shift from something called economics to a new thing called finance.

Life-changing book reveals some of the most important conclusions in science

Dr. Anthony M. Criniti IV extracts significant findings from newly discovered connections between biology, economics, finance, and survivalism in “The Survival of the Richest”

PHILADELPHIA – In “The Necessity of Finance,” Dr. Anthony M. Criniti IV taught that learning the science of finance is necessary for individuals, groups, and organizations to survive. Survival’s role was clearly mentioned there, but a major question was left unanswered: What is more important than learning how to survive? Over the years, he realized that if he truly wanted to better understand the necessity of economics and finance, then first he must thoroughly understand the necessity of survivalism. With unprecedented determination, Dr. Criniti sets out in “The Survival of the Richest” (ISBN 098845954X) to argue that wealth has always been the true link between survival and prosperity.

I commend a group called FIRE (Financial Independence, Retire Early). Please remember that finance is your root subject. If you really want to be “financially independent”, learning finance is the correct path. FIRE is always welcome home in finance!
