Sorry, #1 sounds logical and all, but I doubt the...Sorry, #1 sounds logical and all, but I doubt the correlation between age and "blowing-up" is very high. In 2008, plenty of guys in their 30s made a killing (usually more of a macro bend). If you graduated college in 1995 you were 35 years old in 2008 and had already seen a lot of stuff (asian... 1 week 3 days

When you start your career at a major firm like JT Marlin, you'll be sat down in a room with a bunch of other trainees.

The savings part makes them "rich," not the real estate/investment part. Has nothing to do with how good of an investment it is. My issue is that, all else being equal, a house/mortgage is not the ideal investment... 4 months 4 weeks

Look at Japan among many other arguments against this logic. Interest rates are not inherently mean reverting. This argument implies a huge... 5 months 6 days

Not saying buying a house is a bad decision - it actually is probably good for most ppl most of he same.
