  2. According to a September report from the Center for Retirement Research at Boston College, half of retirees are afraid to use their savings, often refusing to touch money they spent decades socking away expressly so they could enjoy leisure activities in their 60s, 70s and 80s. https://www.nytimes.com/2019/11/06/your-money/retirement-savings.html
  3. We've discussed here why you shouldn't rely on Dave Ramsey or Suzie Orman for investment advice but they seem to reach more people than the folks who give much better and specific advice. They all have something worthwhile to offer, but after rereading them, I found that all had a glaring omission: a lack of substantive advice on investing. You will have to go elsewhere for an in-depth discussion of how to set up a portfolio and choose among stocks, bonds, exchange-traded funds or mutual funds. You should be able to finish the article by clicking the box a little way down the article https://www.nytimes.com/2019/10/11/business/suze-orman-robert-kiyosaki-dave-ramsey-books.html

  5. Hey 401kers welcome to the 403b world Among the two dozen or so rule changes is a provision that is strongly supported by insurance companies but has consumer advocates worried. It would eliminate some of the liability for employers who add annuities to the menu of options for their 401(k) plans — including expensive and complex products that purport to offer the peace of mind of a guaranteed income . https://www.nytimes.com/2019/06/04/your-money/retirement-bill-annuities.html

  7. I had the pleasure of teaching financial literacy for a couple of years before retiring. It was a very rewarding experience.But it open my eyes to the ignorance that exists . If we are to change the financial landscape as it currently stands, financial literacy can eventually make that happen but it might take years. Kudos to states like Virginia for requiring all high school students to take a required financial literacy class plus an exit test before graduating. https://www.nytimes.com/2019/04/26/your-money/student-loan-debt-financial-literacy.html?em_pos=small&emc=edit_my_20190429&nl=your-money&nl_art=0&nlid=20007425emc%3Dedit_my_20190429&ref=headline&te=1H Here is another even newer NYTIMES article on what every high school student should know upon HS graduation By Ron Leiber-One of the good guys. https://www.nytimes.com/2019/05/31/your-money/r-financial-preparation.html?action=click&module=MoreInSection&pgtype=Article&region=Footer&contentCollection=Your Money
  8. Both wanted to ensure that their children, ages 14 and 12, were motivated to succeed in their own right.

  9. Now is a good time to talk with rs about long-term savings using a Roth I.R.A. because they may have earned money from summer jobs, said Patricia A. Seaman, a spokeswoman for the National Endowment for Financial Education, a nonprofit organization that promotes financial literacy. https://www.nytimes.com/2018/08/24/your-money/roth-ira-retirement-rs.html

  12. With investment costs, less is more.

  13. In his classic 1973 book “A Random Walk Down Wall Street,” Burton Malkiel, a Princeton economics professor, made an assertion that was startling at the time: that “a blindfolded monkey throwing darts at the stock listings could select a portfolio that would do just as well as one selected by the experts.” https://www.nytimes.com/2017/06/22/business/burton-malkiel-investment-stock-index-funds.html?ref=business
  14. Americans have grown more confident about their financial acumen since the market meltdown that ended in 2009. Yet they seem to know less about the subject than they did then.And most people didn’t even know much about it in 2009.

  16. Saving for retirement should be simple arithmetic — the longer your money has to grow, the more money you should have when you stop working. But saving today for a distant tomorrow isn’t so simple, and has a great deal to do with how people think about money. http://www.nytimes.com/2016/03/27/your-money/getting-workers-to-save-more-for-retirement.html?_r=0
  17. Typical recommendations nowadays propose greater equity exposure than they did 40 years ago, but it is still the overwhelming view among investment counselors that people should reduce their holdings of common stock and beef up their ownership of bonds as they grow older. Problem is, it wasn’t very good advice back then, and it’s still poor advice today says the author of this article. http://www.nytimes.com/2016/02/06/your-money/why-your-portfolio-needs-plenty-of-stocks-whatever-your-age.html?src=me&_r=0
  18. Funny, Steve S. passed on an immediate annuity recommendation in a very recent post based on A Boglehead recommendation. Soon after I ran into this article. CHECKED your retirement savings plan lately? January’s global stock market plunge is one of those moments that stoke fear among baby boomers that they might run out of money before they run out of years. The fear is understandable: Older Americans are living longer. A man who reached his 65th birthday in 2015 has an average remaining life expectancy of 18.6 years, according to James M. Poterba, an economist at the Massachusetts Institute of Technology. A typical 65-year-old male also has a 20 percent chance of living an additional 25 years or more. For women in the same age group, average remaining life expectancy is 20.3 years; one in five will live to age 93. http://www.nytimes.com/2016/01/30/your-money/annuities-as-an-alternative-to-shaky-markets-not-so-fast.html?&moduleDetail=section-news-2&action=click&contentCollection=Your%20Money&region=Footer&module=MoreInSection&version=WhatsNext&contentID=WhatsNext&pgtype=article

  20. As regulators have ramped up their scrutiny of private equity practices in recent years, investors have learned a lot about hidden — and dubious — fees they are paying.
