  • Budget Deficit On Track For 2% Of GDP [View article]
    Estate tax is nothing other than expression of Robin Hood theory. If you are married you can set up two living trusts each utilizing the $5 million exemption.
    There are other ways to minimize the tax. Rich families find legal ways to pass on their assets.

  • The Biggest Threat To Your Retirement Portfolio: Mild Dementia [View article]
    Great article. I experienced this issue with my Dad, who informed me when he was ill that all his money was invested with a buddy who was paying him 12% interest (paying on paper only of course). When I asked him if he ever considered Vanguard he started crying, which was very uncharacteristic for this WWII vet tough guy. I assured him it was no big deal.
    After he passed away I had an attorney request immediate withdrawal of funds, which took a year and was 80% successful before the company declared bankruptcy.
    Afterward I was determined to put some safeguards in place as I age for our finances, but your article did bring up a few things new for me to consider. Thanks.

    There is such negative publicity momentum. I think SEAS undervalued and toxic.
