"I agree that it is a behavioral problem as well as math problem. The thing is that Ramsey's formula works for people who can't handle complex calculations.  IE they can't handle the math.  So you stick to the foundation…"

Penelope replied to T.S.'s discussion Financial Planning Book Recommendations
"It gets more complicated when you take into account student- and other low-interest loans.  The interest on my student loans is lower than our investment returns (and is tax-deductible), so contra Ramsey, we invest while making minimum…"

Penelope replied to T.S.'s discussion Financial Planning Book Recommendations
"The thing is, of bad things that can happen, some are 3-4 figures (car repair), some are low-5-figures (medical crisis with insurance), and some are 6-figures (federal indictment, long-term unemployment).  6 months for us is mid-5-figures,…"

"You do pay more in interest following Ramsey ... but, it shouldn't be much.  The idea is to pay everything off as quickly as possible.  A few additional interest points over a year isn't all that big a big…"

"I may have to check out that book.  I was given Ormon's book, but I really did not enjoy the book at all.  After years of textbooks her book just was hard to read. As to emergency fund, watching what has happened with the economy has…"

Penelope replied to T.S.'s discussion Financial Planning Book Recommendations
"One of the reasons I like Olen's book, is it points out things like Ormon's waffling on emergency funds* and how much more you'll pay in interest if you follow Ramsey's advice. *Raising a broader issue, this is a bad term for…"

"I agree with you that one should take loans only for things that have a long term payoff or are key for advancement of your long term goals.  It is after all a loan from your future self.  So if you are going to tie yourself to a bill make…"

Wrestling Fight Club

This group is for anyone interested in the sport of wrestling, whether you wrestled in school or are just a fan and want to learn.  People say it's a dying sport but the popularity of MMA has really brought home the importance of wrestling as a skillset that every man needs, especially anyone interested in martial arts in general.  Hopefully this can facilitate discussion and people looking for training partners in their areaSee More
