Once again, the author demonstrates clearly how the financial 'industry' is a thin plastic money trench, where pimps and thieves run free and good men die like dogs.

By layering on complexities and fees, banks, mutual funds, and stock brokers have the general public believing that they simply are not capable of running their own investments.

In reality, all you need is ONE ETF (VBAL), a product from Vanguard with a piteously low . 25% (that's right one quarter of one percent MER), that gives you a diversified 60/40 stock bond split and even rebalances it for you.

Compare that to the average 2-3% MER of most managed mutual funds for almost the EXACT same product. The long term return results are obvious. Make someone else rich, or yourself.

That's it.

You're welcome.

Solid advice, but despite being marketed to investors of all shapes and sizes, it's really only appropriate for people who are already fairly secure financially (home, zero debt, minimal expenses, no kids). Not exactly realistic for most people.
