Retirement advice falls short: ASIC

It's good to see ASIC is finally discovering that Financial Planners are largely commission driven sales people giving poor quality advice.

The changing values of home finance

How to buy property without borrowing a cent? It is becoming hard for home buyers to get loans. Many sales have been falling over due to many buyers not being able to get finance. Due to both valuers undervaluing home prices to avoid being sued by banks (or according to the Financial Review because banks are pressuring valuers to lower values) and due to banks making lending criteria stricter. My suggestion is to buy real estate without the banks and build a property portfolio debt free. Own Read more [...]

More Ways To Improve Australia by Jamie McIntyre

1. We need a pro-business government, not a pro-Union government Business is the engine room for innovation and job creation, whereas Unionism tends to stifle productivity and cost jobs in the long run. Currently we have a pro-Union controlled government, despite Unions only representing 14% of Australians… and those ones often poorly.

An interesting thought by Jamie McIntyre

If the world had 75% females and only 25% men civilisation would continue unabated and be an even safer place. However if the ratio was reversed to a point of 75% men and only 25% females, civilisation as we know it would be likely to come crashing down and become a very dangerous place especially for women. Fortunately such an occurrence is unlikely; however China and India are both in growing danger of a gender imbalance. With a strong preference for male babies so that they can better Read more [...]
