Investment Workshop 40: Still at Chautauqua

Hello again and welcome back to the Millennial Revolution Investment Workshop! New readers, please click here to start from the beginning. This is going to be a short post today, as we are tragically sequestered away in what appears to be an 18th century manor nestled away in the British countryside… Anyway yeah, tough life. We’ll tell you all about it once we get back. But in the meantime, being somewhat secluded this week has cut off my normally steady diet of news, so opening up CNN for the first time in about a week was a bit of a […]

Chautauqua UK

Hey y’all! We are in the UK this week at Chautauqua! Woo woo! So as we’ll be busy all week interacting with our kickass readers and fellow blogger heavyweights JLCollins, MadFientist and Vicki Robins (author of Your Money or Your Life), we won’t be doing our regularly scheduled posts this week, but we will still be posting updates on what it’s like at Chautauqua for everyone who couldn’t get in this year. And in the meantime, we recently appeared in a video segment for Britain’s Channel 4 documentary “How To Retire at 40.” Check it. And BTW, we filmed the […]

Investment Workshop 39: Investing With Debt

Hello again and welcome back to the Millennial Revolution Investment Workshop! New readers, please click here to start from the beginning. We recently received an email from a reader that went something like this: I know your stance on buying a house, and I agree with your reasoning.  However, I live in the Midwest of the U.S. where it is more financially sensible to buy a house instead of rent. I currently live with family while I am paying off debt, and I will be debt free by the end of next year.  Once my debt is paid, I plan […]

Will Trump Kill the Mortgage Interest Deduction?

When I asked FIRECracker about today’s article, she responded by growling and jabbing at her Chautauqua UK speech, so today I’ll be filling in for her Monday post. As you all know, I’ve been keeping a pretty close eye on what the American politicians have been up to, not because I particularly care about US politics, but because there have been a lot of things happening that could potentially affect the FIRE community in potentially devastating ways. The most obvious one being Trump’s repeated attempts to repeal and replace Obamacare, attempts I’ve written about here, here, and here. And while this […]

Investment Workshop 38: Currency Hedging

Hello again and welcome back to the Millennial Revolution Investment Workshop! New readers, please click here to start from the beginning. Today I would like to talk about something that a lot of our readers have asked us about: Currency Hedging. What is Currency Hedging? Well, as you know, the investment style that allowed us to retire in our 30’s and the one we advocate for in this workshop is to build a passive, Index-hugging portfolio made of low-cost ETFs. Generally, it’s easy to explain. Buy the index, lower fees. Gotcha. And when you invest in the index of your […]
