Interesting Stuff on the Web

Interesting stuff on the web is what I have read through out the week. I read a lot of articles and there is always a few articles that I think is worth you reading. Here are a few links. Enjoy !!

Introduction to Index Investing/Savvy New Canadian “With increasing interest in DIY Investing in Canada and the maximization of investment returns by lowering fees, the term “index investing” has greatly grown in popularity. Before digging deeper into index investing, let’s first clarify what it means and how the terminology came about.”

Coal Fueled Teslas/Larry Laborde “Several countries are making proclamations that state all new cars shall be electric by a certain date.  Who decided on electric cars?  I know they sound “clean” but where does that electricity come from?”

Germans Have Quietly Become the World’s Biggest Buyers of Gold/Frank Holmes “When I talk about Indians’ well-known affinity for gold, I tend to focus on Diwali and the wedding season late in the year. Giving gifts of beautiful gold jewelry during these festivals is considered auspicious in India, and historically we’ve been able to count on prices being supported by increased demand.”

Why we will not have a mortgage in early retirement/Early Retirement Now “The case for having a mortgage is pretty simple: You can get a 30-year mortgage for about 4% right now. Probably even slightly below 4% when you shop around. Equities will certainly beat that nominal rate of return over the next 30 years. Open and shut case! End of the discussion, right? Well, not so fast!”
