Same old advice everywhere

May 22nd, 2012 at 11:16 pm

I read a lot of financial news, and I kind of feel like I'm stuck in a rut. Not matter what site I go to, large or small, it seems like the same old generic financial advice or some form of it is there. I'm having a hard time finding anything new. Do you have any suggestions for good reads?

At this point, most of us know all the basics. We need an advanced course!

    I have to agree in terms of generic financial advice. Its the same and it is all so generic and written as if they fear that you are actually going to take their advice that its a rut.

    I have been finding good reads in the broader field of economic behavior.

    The Vanguard investment podcasts were very interesting for what to do. The Vanguard Guide to Retirement isn't bad. Also the Marketplace Money (the weekend program) weekly podcast is pretty good.

    I listen to Planet Money, Freakonomics, and the Marketplace podcasts. I like them a lot!

    I think that the "same old advice" leads to success and is still valid, as long as there are people who are not following it yet! (And I think we would agree that there are a LOT of those.) The thing is that once we have mastered those basic concepts, we naturally want to add more, and that can be a challenge. After all, how many people in modern society actually have some insurance that they are following a good budget, even if you are? Very few. Alas, very few.
