Our goal at SymmetricInfo.org is to make complex economics and finance that matters to your life extremely clear. We do not provide investment advice, but we think the information and concepts here will help you discern the quality of investment advice produced by others and will make you more aware of the risks of investing.

The name of this site is a modification of the term “Asymmetric Information”, which describes a situation or transaction where one party has better information than the other. Our goal is to level the playing field and explain concepts that will help you assess the risk of your investments as well as if not better than many professionals.

We’ve used the format from KhanAcademy.org to explain economic/financial concepts such that there is minimal prior knowledge needed.
