I’m busy taking care of business, but I wanted to highlight a couple interesting links for you.
First, you might want check out an academic article on saving and retirement by Steven Venti and David Wise. The writing isn’t that stellar, but their paper has some powerful insight. What Venti and Wise did was scientifically show that wealth at retirement is caused by how much money one saves. I like it because its hard science, not just internet folklore. Click here to go to the NBER page for the article.
Second, most people are always interested in good deals. For a great one-stop shopping site for used government property, real estate, financial instruments or tax lien sales, you should go to firstgov.gov. I’ve spent many hours drooling over IRS and US customs auctions there and I’m confident you’ll find some good deals if you look hard enough.
Have fun and happy surfing!
