Short Takes: Banning Advisor Commissions, Canadian Real Estate, and more

My only post this week drew some good comments:

Anchoring and Income Taxes

Here are my short takes and some weekend reading:

Canadian Couch Potato weighs in on the banning of financial advisor commissions debate and the arguments made by the president and CEO of Advocis.

Tom Bradley at Steadyhand explains what really has him concerned about Canadian real estate. No matter what happens over the next 5 years, I’m sure that his last statement will be true: “we’ll look back in 5 years and say, ‘Wow, what were we thinking? It was so obvious.’” Human brains are such that things we can’t predict in advance seem inevitable in hindsight.

The Blunt Bean Counter gives three tax-saving strategies that he says are an easier way to save money than being frugal with every small purchase.

Million Dollar Journey explains stop-loss orders. Some traders seem to like this type of order, but I don’t see how they’re any use for investors.
