Marc,
You have me reading.
I am a Dave Ramsey fan and have taught his class, so my thoughts tend toward his advice.
http://www.daveramsey.com/home/
In 40 years, I will be 88 years old.
So without repeating Dave's material, it is 1) Zero Debt, 2) House, 3) Wife, Children, Grand Children willing to talk to me while I put them through war stories, 4) Enough income + Time with friends, peers working to help others in some small way.

How much money that is needed is a dependent on those other goals being defined.

Hey everyone, the point of this series of articles, is to get you thinking "tactically" about investments, and get out of the "strategic" mindset... We don't think strategically when it comes to money - we think tactically. When you approach investments from a tactical point of view, the strategic takes place naturally. I'm not sure when RP is going to release the next part of the series, but presumably it's going to be once ever week or two.

Also, please keep in mind: This is MY point of view - my opinion. I have formed this over 26 years of screwing up, making mistakes, going in debt, and coming out of debt on more than one occasion.

LTC John Shaw: I too am a Dave Ramsey fan. I'm not trying to re-cover ground he already talks about. But yeah, his principles need to be applied before you get to this point.

V/R

Marc

Maybe we need a privately ran defense force? I mean if they thing Y'all get to much pay, food and retirement why not just let an outside company charge the U.S. Government......


Yea, that's what I thought.

SGT Matthew Sullivan: Did you read the article? From the sound of it, you think this is a hit piece? Might want to relook at it because I'm talking about how to invest so YOU can live comfortably when you decide to retire.
