Short Takes: Sticking with a Plan and more

Here are my posts for this week:

Stock Market Momentum

The 4-Hour Workweek

Here are some short takes and some weekend reading:

Canadian Couch Potato offers three specific reasons why you should stick with your asset allocation plan in the face of recent stock volatility.

The Blunt Bean Counter highlights the huge gap in income tax levels between Alberta and Ontario on incomes above $150,000. So far Ontario has kept the top marginal rate a hair under the psychological barrier of 50%. Their game seems to be to lower the income that gets hit with higher rates. If they ever do go over 50%, it should make some people rethink where they want to live or how hard they want to work.

Big Cajun Man managed to finally stop paying for AOL. I didn’t even know that AOL was still around. I used to joke that I belonged to their CD of the month plan. I still use some of their CDs as coasters.

My Own Advisor runs through the basics of PRPPs, but finds that they don’t add much to existing plans without being mandatory.


  1. There is some spectacular art made from old AOL CDs, let us hope it will live on in that. Thanks for the inclusion this week, and have a great weekend.

  2. Thanks for the mention Michael, appreciated. Have a great weekend and I need to read that 4-hour workweek book this fall.
