Re: School fees in PP?

I said that, in case I need to sell almost everything for medical treatment or other disaster. Your plan is good enough. Look stuff that might give tax breaks for education. iBonds, HSA

Tight credit? What are the lending standards. I suppose anyone with a decent idea can get a loan. Speculators need to be reigned in at some point. The Fed now has the power to buy your house through Blackrock if they want to. Maybe they'll let markets fall 20-30% again. It'll be hard to time.

The PP is the highest yielding emergency fund. I'm in it in case I need to sell almost everything overnight. If you want the best return do what Buffett does, large enough emergency fund and the rest stocks
