About The Minnesota Nice Investor
Mark started Minnesota Nice to offer a Minnesotan perspective to macro economics, investing, and family life in Minnesota. You won’t always like or agree with what I say, but like a good Minnesotan, I will say it in a passive-aggressive, self-deprecating way, so you won’t be too offended.
As the name implies, the site has an investing and economic focus, although no advice is given. I will not tell you how to invest, nor will I recommend any particular tax, legal, or retirement course of action but I will add a little color to national, state, and local happenings.
