Earlier this year, Sony Entertainment released God of War: Ragnarok, a masterpiece for the PlayStation 5.

In 2018, one of my financial advisory clients asked me a point-blank question: “Do you think buying this house is a stupid investment?” He was clearly still troubled by his experience from the 2008 financial crisis — a period where the average American lost 42% of their homeowner equity.
