Studio III architects’ Hero Wednesday, for the last week of August:

Money often leaves ones pockets….sometimes at an alarming rate! (not good) When you can keep money in your pocket….you have money. (this is good) When you can put MORE money in your pocket….you have more money. (this is very good!)   So…what would you say to an investment tool that that boasts a risk free 50% return?!?!?! It’s a bit off the conventional “investment strategy” path…but it is definitely money in your pocket risk free….and not rocket science either….check it!   http://www.pbs.org/newshour/businessdesk/2013/06/this-investment-fits-obamas-en.html

“The One Safe Investment and Why You Never Hear About It From Financial Advisors”

“The One Safe Investment and Why You Never Hear About It From Financial Advisors”

When I was a kid…(and no im not that old)….i had a savings account that earned (that’s right “earned”) 8.25%. The banking industry did away with that and I’m sure they’d say it was for our own good. So now if we need liquid cash we must borrow it….no dipping into the savings.

This article features a different way to think about investments and earnings that seems to make sense but is very different from our current way of thinking…what do you think? Fuzzy math, fact or fiction….?
