Tweet   HEY. THAT’S TODAY. If you’re one of my several American readers, first of all, congratulations. Not just because you’re reading the greatest blog in the history of the universe (TM) but because you’ve waded through more Canadian jokes than an episode of The Rick Mercer Show to get to this point. That takes a special kind of dedication. For you special readers, yesterday was Thanksgiving. (Aside: I saw somebody tweet “if you celebrate Thanksgiving, have a great one.” Who in the 9th circle of hell doesn’t celebrate Thanksgiving? An Read More […]

Tweet Eddie’s new day is Wednesday. (Checks calendar) Hey wait. That’s today. Here he is.  Let me pose a fictitious story to you to illustrate a very important point. Jane works at a local grocery store as a produce manager.  She excels at her job because she is knowledgeable, driven, and charismatic.  On the last day of 2011, she sat down with Bob, her accountant, to discuss her finances.  Bob informed her that she made $80 000 over the year.  Jane was happy and they both said goodbye. On January Read More […]

Tweet A few weeks ago I was asked to take part in a personal finance expert sort of panel over at Boomer and Echo, AKA the only adult man in the world who willingly spends time with his mother when he isn’t trying to bum smokes or to sucker her into taking care of his kids. You’re a bigger man than I, Robb. Robb ended up asking 15 of us what our opinion was on borrowing to invest. He “got” a letter from a “reader” (fact: 99% of those are made Read More […]

Tweet (Plus links. Stay tuned for them at the bottom.) Friend of the blog John Robertson (author at Holy Potato, AKA one of the blogs I link to every week) wrote a small little e-book a couple of years ago, called Potato’s  I reviewed it here. It was a nice little guide explaining the basics of RRSPs, TFSAs, and all that jazz. I’m sure my shout-out led to him selling thousands of books. Well, apparently that wasn’t good enough for him. Like some sort of ambitious guy, he basically scrapped Read More […]

Tweet It’s Eddie, and it’s more interesting than last week. Last week I gave what was likely a boring example of a solution to sunk cost fallacy using the example of developing an oil & gas property.  This was based upon a previous post explaining the concept of sunk cost fallacies.  This week’s post gives more individual solutions to sunk cost fallacies and how to avoid them. Avoid careers with defined-benefit pensions – oft lauded by uneducated personal finance bloggers, jobs with DB pensions are rife with the sunk cost Read More […]

Tweet We’ve all concluded that BlackBerry is the best, right? Everyone hold up your Passport phones and wave them around like you just don’t care!!! You all don’t have Passport phones? What in the actual hell is wrong with you? They’re the best. They have a full keyboard, and access to the Android store for apps, and some program that works like iMessage but with all your texts, plus John Chen is handsome and I heart him very much. No, YOU have an unreasonable man crush. As I’ve mentioned, oh, Read More […]

Tweet It’s Eddie time, y’all. Last week, I described and we explored the notion of sunk cost fallacy.  There have been many business articles written about sunk cost fallacy, yet many propose no solutions other than to be aware of it.  In this week’s article, I will propose some ideas to overcome sunk cost fallacy. The best way to reduce the effects of sunk cost fallacy is to evade it altogether and not find yourself in a position where one has to contemplate it. One method is through modularization. This Read More […]

Tweet Like our buddy Bill’s “problem” back in 1998, most accounting problems aren’t so bad. People huff and puff for a while, stuff looks like it’s about to get real, and then things go back to being normal again. We can look at accounting scandals in one of two ways. They’re either intentional, or accidental. The intentional case involves an outright fraud. The accounting department knows the books aren’t right, but either the CEO puts pressure on the department to hit a certain number, or the CFO does it in Read More […]

Tweet Hi kids. Nelson here. Today we’ve got a guest post from Rob Pivnick, who works for Goldman Sachs. This automatically makes him the smartest person who has ever visited this blog by a factor of ten. He wrote a book called What All Kids (and adults too) Should Know About . . . Saving & Investing. I haven’t read it, but Rob seems pretty smart. I’m sure it’s a good gift for your favorite millennial. Take it away, Rob.  It’s a tiger. Or maybe a lion or wolf. And it’s Read More […]
