A lot is made in the media about the early retirement movement (sometimes referred to as ‘FIRE’). This week on Living With Money, I talked with author Tanja Hester about her new book ‘Work Optional: Retire Early the Non-Penny-Pinching Way’. We address some of the common misconceptions surrounding the concept, and how it’s not as black and white as it seems.
Here’s what I’ve been reading this morning:
‘Project One Question: Inside ETFs’ – Justin Castelli – All About Your Benjamins
‘Notes From the Field 004: The Senate, Economic History and Gold’ – Ashby Daniels – Retirement Field Guide
‘Is There a Size Effect in the Stock Market?’ – Wes Gray – Alpha Architect
‘Short Money Rules’ – Morgan Housel – Collaborative Fund
‘The Elimination of Risk’ – Michael Batnick – The Irrelevant Investor
