Find out here

This is a very basic test. I got questions #2 and #10 wrong. And I have a negative net worth!

rasmus, I can't make that link work. Is that just me?

I got 7 out of 10.

I got 2, 5 (I didn't even know what a GIC was), and 10 (I guessed 8.7%) wrong.

I got questions 1, 6, and 9 correct.

Of COURSE I don't know what I'm doing with money, rasmus. But so I thought I'd answer politically, according to the economic convictions I've learned from you. But so like rasmus: it turns out that capitalists really do have more fun!

In real life, I don't have any money to invest, though -- so that's a Good Thing, I guess, as Martha would say.

I have to brag (I don't have to really, but I want to). I got 9 out of 10. I missed #1 because I hit the wrong answer by mistake (I did, honest!). I knew the right answer.

At this point, I wish I didn't have any money in the market. I should have got out two years ago when my instincts told me to, but I couldn't figure out where to park my money. Answering 9 out of 10 doesn't necessarily mean a person is smart, just that they know a lot. And what good does that do if they don't use their knowledge to good advantage?
