Financial Education

We believe consumers and clients should be self educated about finance. We urge consumers to avoid reading glib, superficial general interest publications and instead read the rather dry scholarly publications. That way you will escape the gravitational tug of Wall Street's propaganda and instead learn how to access low cost investments.

In order to provide the best service to our clients we spend about 80-100 hours a month reading about finance. Many of these require expensive subscriptions. Here is a list of what we read:

Insights by Gary Shilling
Breakfast With Dave by Dave Rosenberg
Financial Times
Wall Street Journal
New York Times
Journal of Accountancy
Bloomberg BusinessWeek
Bloomberg Markets Magazine
Journal of Financial Planning
CFA Digest

Financial Analyst Journal
