What a weird concept. Loving your kids too much. But it can be true. By giving them too much, by coddling them from every possible disappointment, we turn them into ineffectual adults. From ensuring that everyone gets a trophy to always giving them money when they ask, kids today can't handle normal disappointment and have never had to work or struggle for anything. Mom and Dad are always waiting, poised to smooth whatever path their children are on. But in the name of loving them, we're taking away character building opportunities.

We tend to talk about stocks much more often than bonds. Why? Because since LMM began, our audience has skewed young, most of our listeners are in their twenties and thirties.

Most of you know the basics, and we've covered bond investing in the past. Today we have returning guest J. David Stein to go a little deeper into the weeds and talk about the yield curve.

now in Dec 2020 a bit is valued at $19,111 so even if you bought 2 bitcoins at 1200 each when they talked about it you would have serious profits

more than half the time it's better to rent? that's the dumbest shit I've ever heard. if your house loses all of its value and is worth 0$ in 25 years when it's paid off you're still doing way better because you have no rent or mortgage to pay for. where as if you rent you pay the rest of your life. So unless your house goes negative which is impossible then you'll always be better off buying

That's not at all how employees share purchase programs work. No wonder Lehman failed if idiots like this worked for them. Lululemon for example matches what the employees put in at increments of 3,6,9% of the employees salary. Either you missed one important way they work. Or you're basing your fact on what one garbage company did instead of doing actual research.

G’day guys ( from Australia), what are you drinking? I would love to see myself on your spot in future, I want to learn web design like you guys, my curiosity is- “ is it too late to learn web design as there are platforms like wix which help to make a website, I know nth about web design , what platform is best to learn it? Real course or online course? Any recommendation? Also, is there anyway you could reply on this comment rather than talking on a podcast because I recently started to listen to you guys, I am very far behind, it’s gonna take me ages to reach latest episodes, thanks
