late-night random thoughts

Dear authors of the books on financial, retirement, or investment planning; there is nothing like the “magic of compounding” in interest-based investment anymore. There is no interest rate like 10, 12, or 15%. Our current economic situation and interest rates nullify this claim. Please adjust your thinking and write more realistic/timely books for folks like myself to benefit from; how shall we invest in this economic environment?

I suspect you do not have a clear or guaranteed ideas either, but at least let’s retire this “the magic of compound interest” thing.

  1. One day, the politicians are going to look around for money, notice all that money folks have in “secure” retirement accounts and find a way to “use” it. Then compounding or lack there of will be the least of our retirement concerns…. I used to feel a bit on the paranoid “tin hat club” side when I said that but now… well not so much.
