Investment Workshop 24: Mortgage Backed Securities and Why They Cause Housing Crashes

Hello again and welcome back to the Millennial Revolution Investment Workshop! New readers, please click here to start from the beginning. The other day we received this question from a reader. I’ve been reading about these Mortgage Backed Securities that just became available in Canada. Should we invest in it? So as a result today I thought I’d switch gears a bit and talk about the Canadian Housing Market. You American readers pull up a chair and grab some popcorn because for once you get to feel smug about US. For about 10 years now, endless pundits and economists have […]

Investment Workshop 23: How Much Insurance Do I Need?

Hello again and welcome back to the Millennial Revolution Investment Workshop! New readers, please click here to start from the beginning. A reader recently asked us “Can you do a post on insurance? I have no idea how much insurance I need.” Which is a great question. Insurance is something we often don’t talk about in personal finance blogs, but is something everyone has to do deal with.

Inflation is measured using the CPI, or Consumer Price Index. Basically, this is a basket of goods that the government makes […]

Frugal Hookups: The Sticky Aftermath

Hi everyone! So last week we posted about Frugal Relationships and Frugal Hookups, and as an experiment we asked people to post about themselves if they were looking for someone just as well versed in the ways of FIRE as they were. The results were pretty surprising. First of all, there were 69 comments as of the time of this writing. TEE HEE. And of those, there were 34 brave people who participated. I was expecting 2 or 3 but instead we got 34. That suggests this is actually a problem people have. And as I thought about it, I […]
