Jail the Homeless? And a Geographic Plan B For Your Retirement Years

6/7/2021
One of the best, most simple explanations I've ever heard for economics is from the book “The Armchair Economist,” by Steven Landsburg. He wrote that most of economics can be summarized in four words: “People respond to incentives.” People respond to incentives. Here in Portland, we've incentivized homelessness and lawlessness with our attitudes and legislation essentially encouraging our homeless friends to do drugs and commit whatever crime necessary to support their habit. All while...

James Altucher is an outspoken opponent of buying a home. He wrote a very popular blog post about why https://jamesaltucher.com/blog/dont-buy-home/ (here).

Are you nervous about the current stock market bubble? You should be. Have you thought about investing in cash-flowing single-family homes, but just don't know where to start? I was there. Back in 2017, as I was making kickass returns in the market, buying shares of Amazon every time I read about another major retailer closing (Remember Macys? JC Pennys?), I knew the bull market was going to have to end. But when? I knew I wanted to get into real estate and get out of the stock market, but I...

A Paid Off Home Mortgage is a Sign of Financial Illiteracy, PART I

3/15/2021
Some financial gurus, including Dave Ramsay, will tell you that you need to pay off your home mortgage, for the sake of being out of debt. Unfortunately, if you're interested in building wealth, that's horrible advice. If you're self-employed and you're hoping to retire one day, paying down your mortgage with early principle payments is like putting money into a non-interest-bearing savings account that you can't get it back out of. Why would you do that??? In today's environment of the...

The 4% Rule and YOU.

2/21/2021
Today we're gonna give a brief rundown on the 4% rule, originally developed by William Bengen. The 4% rule had me paralyzed back in the day, because I didn't think I'd ever have enough of a nest egg to retire. Based on this rule, if you want your retirement funds to last for 30 years, you need 25X your required annual income. Of course, this is if you've got the standard stock/bond asset allocation. As always, if you have questions, feel free to email me at matt@rogueretirementlounge.com
