Re: Daughter's brokerage acct, advice?

Thanks, everyone, for your generous and sage advice. When my daughter was quite young I bored her with the concept of compound interest and started a plan for saving 40% of any gift/work money she received; 20% for large/future purchases, 20% for the [more]

Re: An Open Letter

Thank you for the reminder for everyone. Question: isn't there a pill one takes beforehand to evacuate the intestine, instead of drinking gallons of fluid to do so?

Re: Jeff Hollander: Add 1% Wealth Tax

In fairness, the Lottery proceeds in Texas weren't earmarked for Education because they're a notoriously unreliable source of revenue. There are a lot of other things notorious about Texas but I just thought I'd clear up that one thing about the [more]

Re: rich man making sense

For sure, changes need to be made so people will have work to support themselves, but to say the masses will rise up with pitchforks is hyperbole. That's fine if it incites people do something constructive, but let's remember the French were [more]
