Investors, like pilots, operate in a complex environment. The environment occasionally produces moments of stress... The primary cause of investor failure is the behavior of the investors themselves. Many of them are their own worst enemy. To put it bluntly, they haven't yet learned to resist the overwhelming urge to do stupid things with their money. Investors, like pilots, can benefit from disciplined, rational, and logical thought processes when the pucker factor rises. - Frank Armstrong III, The Informed Investor 

Why should an individual see Social Security as an insurance program rather than a retirement program?

The recommended book this week is Index Funds, by Mark Hebner. This wonderful book is laced with illustrations, statistical research, quotes, and good ole fashion common sense. The sub-title reads, The 12-Step Recovery Program for Active Investors. That is exactly what this book provides. Growth comes to those who are willing to change the way they think and act with their money and their investments.

 

This book will walk the average person through the maze of misinformation, outright lies, and high cost as Mr. Hebner drops you softly into the lap of the true experts on the subject to learn the truth that the financial services industry does not want you to know. This is a must read for those who wish to become the wise and successful investor. Financial freedom to follow!
