About the Movement

The “F.I.R.E.” Movement has emerged in developed Western nations thanks to the Internet and simple, efficient ways to invest and grow money. Rooted in cultural traditions of simplicity and values-based appraisals of what makes life truly worth living, the FIRE sub-culture was born from the minds of engineers and computer programmers who favor life optimization and personal freedom over “stuff.” Today their followers have proven–through a series of simple life hacks and time-tested investing strategies–that it’s possible to buck the system and walk away from mandatory work decades before the standard narrative would suggest is possible.
