Hello again and welcome back to the Millennial Revolution Investment Workshop! New readers, please click here to start from the beginning. In what appears to be a never-ending cycle, the Republican effort to repeal and replace Obamacare continues to careen from news story to news story. If you were to try to keep up in the day-to-day negotiations, back-room dealings and press briefings, you’d probably go nuts. Fortunately, you don’t have to since I did it, and JOKES ON THEM, I’m already nuts so no (further) damage done. Why Is This So Important? To recap, if you’re reading from Canada, […]

Hello again and welcome back to the Millennial Revolution Investment Workshop! New readers, please click here to start from the beginning. For the last few months, we’ve been traipsing around Mexico and Central America and for the most part stopped paying much attention to what was going on back in Canada. But recently, after coming back to Toronto to visit family post our app launch, we discovered just how much could change in just a few short months.

Every time an American reader writes into us with a Reader Case, our eyes bug out a little bit. Specifically, we bug out at your student debt numbers. Americans, your student debt issues are INSANE.

Hello again and welcome back to the Millennial Revolution Investment Workshop! New readers, please click here to start from the beginning. For some strange reason, despite the fact that all I do is harp about passive, low-cost ETFs, I keep getting questions over emails like this one: I recently found out about an investment fund that’s really interesting. They buy up ponies, implant horns on their heads and then resell them as unicorns (Wanderer: I just made that up as an example, but I could TOTALLY see that working as a business.

Hello again and welcome back to the Millennial Revolution Investment Workshop! New readers, please click here to start from the beginning. Last week on June 14th, the US Federal Reserve did something that just a few years ago would have been unthinkable: they hiked interest rates. This is the 3rd such hike since December, bringing the Federal Fund benchmark rate from 0.5% in 2016 to 1.25% today. But what does it mean? Why would the Fed do that?
