The Smatter is a digital publishing platform and forum for creative, open-minded capitalists. We publish spirited comedic commentary and debate on current events, business, and technology.
Thoughts and opinions constantly fly at us from Left or Right. Important ideas generally germinate most effectively in the Middle, where treads The Smatter. This is not to extol the virtues of being indecisive, but of being rational and good-humored.
Behold, The Smatterfesto!
Rhodes dwells professionally where technology and investments intersect. He went to business school, implying he suffers from conservatism and money-lust, but he did so at Berkeley, implying he’s also kicked a lot of hacky-sack in his day. A journalist, poet, and CFA charterholder, Rhodes yearns to transform the consumption of good writing and astute social commentary into an enjoyable and engaging experience for all. By “all”, he means those of a certain socioeconomic class that is highly attractive to advertisers. He is honest, and therefore from the Midwest. In his spare time, he enjoys writing self-congratulatory third-person accounts of himself.
