I’m always amazed how when I put together a link roundup for he week there seems to be a common theme. Why is that? I try to look around a various post and pick the ones that stand out to me. They aren’t always the most useful or the most concrete, but I think they are the most valuable. Actually, I guess it depends on how you measure value. This is a pretty good lead into the theme for this week which is perspective. See I find the posts that I link to each week hugely valuable because they are thought provoking. Most of what I post is to make you think outside the box in ways no one has ever even presented to you. To me this is valuable but to the narrow-minded or stubborn this is just a waste of time. With that being said, if you’re still reading, enjoy!
The Minority Report from Prosperity on Purpose This is the perfect post to get you thinking about perspective. How wealthy are you? It just might be very enlightening.
The Greatest Deception in the History of Finance from The Big Picture This post takes what everybody is in search of and asks if it’s just a marketing scheme. Okay I simplified it a bit. I guess you’ll have to read to make up your own mind.
Would You Kill a Stranger For a Billion Dollars from @ManvsDebt I miss-read this at first, I thought it said a millions dollars. A billion? No question, I’d do it in a second. Wait can I plan it out first so that I actually have a chance to get away with it. Isn’t it funny how this question changes by only a few word?
The Biggest Investment Decision: Asset Allocation from @behaviorgap This post has some must read comments. I’ve always struggle with the actual role that a risk tolerance questionnaire should play in someones financial planning. I guess I’m not the only one.
Investor Psychology: Your Brain is Hardwired to ‘Follow the Herd’ from @Matt_SF One more compelling reason why perspective is important. It seems as though it might just play a role in marketing…
As a Patriots fan I must include the following post. You understand…
Make sure you don’t miss my appearance this week:
