Weekend Reading – Mayan mayhem, holiday wishes and great blogs

Will it end or won’t it end?  Is that the question? I’m not talking about all the craziness in the stores lately or the NHL strike, I’m talking about the end of the world. By most interpretations, by way of the last cycle of the Mayan calendar, the world is expected to end very soon…in a matter of hours.  Some have argued the Mayans, whose civilization spanned across southern Mexico, Guatemala and Belize from 1000 B.C. to 1519 A.D., have long known the day the world would end – December 21.  Do you believe it?  Or ...

Hard to believe how time flies…2012 is coming to an end.  Overall, it’s been a good year for my wife and I and we have many things to be thankful for.  First and foremost we have our human capital, which makes our financial capital easier to obtain.  My parents instilled in me “you don’t have much without your health” and there’s certainly some truth to that. In January armed with our human capital, I laid out what I thought were some pretty aggressive saving and investing goals for the year ahead.  As 2012 comes to a close, ...

Weekend Reading – Passive investing video, giveaways and great blogs

Leading off this Weekend Reading list is a link to Passive Investing:  The Evidence.  This financial documentary is divided into eight chapters in a video just under an hour long.   The movie is full of Nobel Prize economists and distinguished academics singing the praises of index investing.  The experts in the video make a strong case for indexing and if you have time to check out the video, do so if only for a few minutes. One of my favourite blogs celebrated his 6-year anniversary this week with a $3,000 giveaway.  Congrats to Million ...
