Basic income, pre-funerals, and the good life
Woo, it's Sunday evening again. Where did the time go?
(people that know me know exactly where the time went -it's going to be a rough month or two work-wise)
Hopefully you are doing better :)
Here are this week's links:
What do customers want? The illusion of loyalty.
We're working on this: create your own basic income before it is too late.
Can't argue with this: a strong case for indexing.
The best age to get your public pension? As late as possible.
Speed kills, even in investing: nobody wants to get rich slowly.
Monevator's weekly roundup and Jason Zweig's wisdom.
Down to Earth millionaire interview.
Do you also think you are a better than average driver? Playing in traffic.
Eeek. Diversify, diversify: how about now.
Stocks tend to go up, except when they don't: double digit returns are the norm for the stock market.
Like this idea, but the timing seems tricky: Japanese executive known for 'pre-funeral' dead at 81.
I've never experienced a market correction directly. Might not matter: experience is overrated.
Seems fair to me. Government eyes stripping ownership rights to unattended land.
Japan's population sees record population drop. Again. Maybe this is not news.
How the 0.1% live: how a tech billionaire invests.
Want to die a millionaire? Old story.
This is really good and probably worth twenty minutes or so: the psychology of money.
Really interesting long read on tech companies: invisible asymptopes.
What makes a good life? Probably not cocktails on the beach...
Which one was your favourite? I'm going to have to go with the basic income one.
