If you fondly remember rich kids weeping and gnashing their teeth on the beach at the apocalyptic Fyre Festival 2 years ago, you’re in luck.
You can now buy the island that hosted the ill-fated fest for a cool $12 million.

Or, if you’re a wanna-be with smaller ambitions, you can pay a professional nerd to run a Dungeons and Dragons campaign for you. If you’re a manager dealing with failing morale at the office, you can pay them to run a roleplaying team-building event, too. Nerds really do run the world.
Next up, some political news. 2020 presidential contender Kamala Harris suggested bill payments like rent and utilities should factor into credit scores. Plenty of people with bad credit never miss a rent payment. So, that policy could potentially end up helping people get access to financing by showing they can make payments.
Maybe those people could give financial advice to the couple in Kansas that makes $500k a year and still can’t seem to make ends meet. (They probably want to save up to buy the Fyre Festival island).
All the goods and more below in today’s Linkage.
