One thing is certain: Goldman Sachs will be "playing with your money."

That is who they are. That is what they do.
Who cares? FDIC insured.

Re: Invest like Buffett?

But good on him for admitting taxes are too low Unless you are referring to his own taxes, you can't be serious. Our overall tax burden (income, FICA, sales, property, etc.) exceeds 50% in some jurisdictions. https://calebjonesblog.com/americans-pay-among-highest-taxes-world/ What do you think is f...

TLT is leading the pack in one year returns.
I don't pay close attention, so I am shocked to hear that. I would have guessed stocks.

Its funny how people complaining about high rent, turn around and block legislation to increase housing. https://la.curbed.com/2019/5/16/18628217/senate-bill-50-status-postponed Typical. It's just like people fleeing high tax CA and NY for Austin or FL and then voting in the same stupid policies th...

Re: Will Trump be Re-elected?

Ok I have it now. It then leads to a couple questions... You're saying it's a better program than 401ks because it avoids payroll taxes. Basically throwing out SS and Medi caid Medicare? yes What about for people who were in the workforce paying payroll taxes and don't have a profit sharing account...

Re: Will Trump be Re-elected?

Man, I still don't get what you guys are saying. Is it basically to allocate your employees dividends, like shareholders? I do know that you can shield a lot of income from taxes with the currently available programs: HSAs, IRAs, and 401ks. $28,000 between them, even more if you run your own LLC. 4...

moda,
When an employee leaves before the end of the vesting period, what happens to the funds that they forfeit? Does it go to the other employees?

Re: Will Trump be Re-elected?

I think he is saying to shift the burden of retirement $ from 401k to profit sharing, which is entirely employER funded. Here's the problem, from the perspective of a small business owner: there are only so many staff salary dollars to go around and still be profitable. So you can give those dollars...

Re: Harry Browne's "Rule Your World" audio series

I "purchased" Harry Browne's "Rule Your World" audio series for $99 here However, the zip file that I was sent is corrupted and there is no response to my emails, even weeks later. I have a feeling that no one is actively managing that domain any more. I'm wondering where my money even went to. Doe...
