Financial Planning

  • This couple living in North Atlanta makes $180,000 a year and does not feel wealthy (of course not, they aren’t building wealth, they are just making and spending a lot more than the average U.S. household) – https://www.cnbc.com/2017/11/13/couple-earning-over-180000-we-dont-feel-wealthy.html
  • Suze Orman explaining when to stop saving so much in retirement accounts and when to allocate that capital to paying off your mortgage. She makes an excellent math argument on how paying a monthly mortgage becomes very expensive as you have to withdraw from the very retirement accounts you were stuff and paying ordinary income tax rates on them.  One concept that is rarely discussed but the crux of the issue is, “If you can’t pay off your home prior to retirement, you are most likely living in a home that is beyond your means, has been beyond your means, and will continue to be beyond your means into and through retirement sucking up what is then fixed and limited retirement income that could be allocated to other priorities as you age.”   – Suze Orman: Here’s when you should ‘stop saving so much in your retirement accounts’ – CNBC – Suze Orman: Here’s when you should ‘stop saving so much’ for retirement – https://www.cnbc.com/2017/11/15/suze-orman-pay-off-mortgage-instead-of-saving-so-much-for-retirement.html

Debt

Investments/Valuations

  • Lance Roberts is one of the most truthful and transparent guys in the investment world. This is a great article that exposes the bologna that happens on Wall Street everyday and how they take advantage of retail (small individual investors) every day, of every week, of every year.  But somehow, the average person never seems to take note of this crooked system – https://realinvestmentadvice.com/the-truth-about-wall-street-analysis/
  • For all who enjoy examples of the corrupt nature of Wall Street, financials engineering gone wrong, and the “partnership” between publicly traded companies (often mega Fortune 500 behemoths) and said Wall Street firms, look no further than this excellent summary of General Electric over the past 17 years. The biggest losers in this mess are the very shareholders of General Electric.  Do you think executive management did get rich during the destruction of so much capital of retail investors, pension funds, and endowments?  Heck no.  Management got mega rich, Wall Street earned billions in fees and stockholders got left holding the bag for being the stupid suckers that they are.  To keep things in perspective, this was all 100% legal and Wall Street endorsed.  This same crap is happening at many other companies. – http://davidstockmanscontracorner.com/ges-comeuppance-poster-boy-for-financial-engineering-run-amok/
