I signed up for Marco’s class devoid of even the most basic knowledge about investing. Even though some of the talking points went over my head (some of the other attendees were more versed in finances or had taken other Marco courses/talks before), I still got what I really needed — to be educated on some of the basics of how the larger economy works and to discover some ethical/productive alternative resources to invest in that someone more savvy than I am had already investigated into. The reading (especially about natural resources) was illuminating and the assignments were thought provoking and on point. Marco explains subjects very well and is accessible and personable.

An unexpected benefit of taking this during COVID semi-lockdown and during a stressful news cycle was getting to spend 90 minutes a week with other people seeking a way to try to make the world a little bit better place where they could. Taking the class ended up being both an education and a morale boost. “So shines a good deed in a naughty world.”
