re: Say your kid got into Rice, SMU, and Tulane. - chongo
Depends on what they want to do. Rice has the best academics of those 3, so if they're into engineering or science that's the obvious choice. Can land pretty solid national jobs with a Rice degree. SMU has the best networking opportunities per capita for a non-target school. Won't be able to compete...

re: Alternative view on why LA struggles to attract new companies. - chongo
It's plain and simply taxes and bad local govt. Property taxes on commercial property are like 17% of assessed value. Then you've got the Gordon's of the world preventing my company from even getting insurance in LA. I'm not huge, but I do a little less 15 mil in revenue and employ around 120 people...

There is a reason he lost the starting job to a kid who lost the starting job at Purdue.... Best of luck to him though. He didn't strike me as the kind of guy to have much success off da football field. ...

re: VCU fans are Salty tonight - chongo
I'd be pissed too. They've gone to the dance 7 times in a row, including a final 4. We've gone dancing once during that time. It would be like U-La-La poaching Ed. O after this year (based purely on results over the last decade). I understand this view isn't how things/programs work. But VCU has...

[quote]That part was changed by the DOL in their final ruling. An advisor does not have to recommend an investment over the other [b]simply bc[/b] one has a lower expense.[/quote] Exactly.

re: Any thoughts on the proposed changes to retirement plans by the Dept of Labor?? - chongo
You got it wrong. The fiduciary rule requires advisors to simply act in the best interests of the client. That may require the advisor suggest an ETF with an expense ratio of 0.15% as opposed to a similarly weighted mutual fund run by the advisors employer that charges 1.50%. So nothing about h...

I did when I was with a member. I generally frown upon stealing, which is what that is. You're hitting balls and getting a service that requires payment, yet you aren't paying. In Saudi Arabia you'd have your hand cutoff. It's like asking if taking food from the grocery store is cool if you don'...
