Maybe you can suggest your "Leaders" follow Australia's example ::)
Do they have a cap on food purchases? I didn’t see it on the Zerohedge page.

Re: bull market. The guy who ran PRPFX used to talk about how people would flock to the fund during lean years and stampede out during prosperous years, ie stocks going up.

Re: Good deal on treasuries vs CDs right now

Looks like the 7-year note is paying almost as much as the 10-year, and the 20-yr is paying *more* than the 30-yr.

Re: Best Cash Back Credit Card

Interesting, the Points Guy mentions the Alliant card, specifically the Visa Signature card, as having an annual fee that is waived in year one. But the site in your link, OP, says there is no fee. I think the Points Guy’s article (NOV ‘20) must be out of date. That 2.5% is tempting, though I don’t ...

Re: Yay PP!

It’s clear that if someone were curious about the pp, they would have to dig deep to find posts that correspond with the principles in the book(s). This is exactly why (though I frequently recommend the PP to others for consideration) I never suggest this forum. I have no problem with Mathjak, but ...

Re: Yay PP!

Yep. But it should probably be routed to an existing thread, like the aforementioned Mathjak thread, so that a newbie sees that the alternatives exist (not to mention the alternatives all over the rest of the web) but sees pp threads about the pp.

I'm in the market for a new simple cash back credit card. With no categories and rules etc. … One of the main things I am looking for here is simplicity.

Re: Wages (e.g) at McDonalds

Yeah, I guess it’s changed, but it used to be that McDonald’s low level jobs were a way station before college or, for some, a managerial position. McDonald’s University. Now that the gig is a permanent job, some people are angrily demanding higher minimum wages. Something’s wrong.

Re: Yay PP!

My guess is that most PP users aren't watching their balance daily. And if they are (I usually do), there's an understanding that investing is a marathon, not a sprint. I don't get upset if things are down on any given day. That's a recipe for a miserable life. Exactly. It’s good to have mathjak ar...
