"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…"

Rebekah 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…"

Rebekah 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…"

Rebekah 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…"

Saxon replied to Matthew Perry's discussion Where to start a collection? in the group Fountain Pens
"Having tried out a few hundred fountain pens, I was left unimpressed by MontBlanc. They are simply not writing tools, but rather fashion accessories that look better in your shirt pocket than in your hand. "
