re: International Equity Exposure - Sigma

re: Khan Academy - Econ and Finance - Sigma
Not really. I've just been watching them all. Some of them are very basic, like compound interest, so you may want to skip those. But with most of the others I've learned a lot. I've got a fair amount of walking around knowledge but all the theory is totally new to me. ...

Khan Academy - Econ and Finance - Sigma
After getting schooled by Broke and HiddenFlask a few months ago after confusing some terminology, I've been working my way through these videos. I'm really interested in personal finance but never took any econ/finance course in undergrad. So even though the topics have been pretty basic so far...

re: Best strategy for emergency fund savings? - Sigma
If you are investing in anything more conservative than your retirement goals require strictly because you are using part of your Roth as an emergency fund, you are wasting money. Not to mention not being able to replace the withdrawals should you have to use it. If you can afford to fully fund ...

You should've just posted a picture of Pete Rose himself. I can't think of a more perfect username to match his posts, at least in this thread. But I doubt the real Pete is very frugal. ...

re: What are some "bad" movies which you enjoy? - Sigma
Joe Dirt for me too. Perfect comedy. Silly shallow humor, likable characters, Walken, non-annoying Dennis Miller, eye candy, and one of the most quotable movies of this generation. Wait, what kind of person doesn't like that combination?...

re: Break it down - your finances - Sigma
Another thing not really mentioned in this thread is location. In my profession the salary multiple from Alabama to say, California, is about 1.8x. Other metro areas may be a little less but this seriously skews the income data. Now amount saved, etc takes into account cost of living, but this talk ...

re: What is your car payment? APR? On what vehicle? - Sigma
[quote]What I can't tell is, did I do better or did we all get fricked together? [/quote] Possibly, but not on the terms. Just the cost. In middle class America we've convinced ourselves 1) that a 4 yr old car is not "nice" enough and/or unreliable and 2) that we must have push-button start, ...

re: What is your car payment? APR? On what vehicle? - Sigma
Although these $500 and up monthly payments generally make me want to vomit, at less than 2% rates the interest is nearly nothing. So it's almost like forced savings, and getting the car ahead of time. Not much different from "saving a car payment" and then paying cash. Personally I wouldn't min...

re: Going rate for 15 year mortgages these days? - Sigma
