as in politics/finance, the big stuff not the keynesian college econ.. nurture investing capabilities and an eye for the market. i see no big need to get any kind of hands on skill right now, as the economy will look very different after the crash, because a lot of new industries will arise from that. there may be some overlap with whatever salary job skill you are able to get, but you're never going to out pace someone who grows up under the new economy and has hands on experience with all the new stuff then from scratch. might as well focus on the big and never-changing, a sense of market timing, finance and politics.
