Beware Financial Advisors – CBC Investigation

Friday, March 25th, 2016

Pay very special attention to this documentary if you are not a sophisticated investor. The reality is most financial advisors are NOT very educated about the financial markets themselves. I had a bad experience myself with a dumb financial advisor at a major Canadian bank.

The majority of financial advisors have no idea about market timing and they usually are just salespeople wanting to sell you financial products so they can collect either commissions or residual income as long as you keep your money in the investment vehicle they recommend.

50% of Canadians Expect to Be in Debt When They Retire

Tuesday, December 2nd, 2014

First of all 25% of Canadians think that their mortgage and car payment is not considered as DEBT. Let me just say that these people need some serious “personal finance” training from Rich Dad, Poor Dad. Anything that takes /subtracts from your monthly income and cause you to have less disposable income / spending money is considered a liability or debt. Also any loan/credit that keeps you from saving money in a TFSA or high interest account is detrimental to your financial health.

Thursday, September 4th, 2014

There is so much truth behind how much people who become rich, knows and how they think as compared to a poor person. People become rich because they decide to get off their ass, be self aware and learn the skills they need to become successful constantly.

If you are poor, pick up a book and read, when you are done pick up another book, then another and another. For myself, I have read over 36 books in the last 5 years, and taken several courses all on finance, and it has helped my bottom line immensely. – Documentary “Monarchs of Money” – Central Banks

Wednesday, March 26th, 2014

Central Banks are criminal, they create an environment where the wealth is transferred from the poor, middle class up to the government and elite’s pockets.

CBC The Bottom Line: 2014 Economic Outlook for Canada

Tuesday, January 28th, 2014

Notice how the former bank CEO Patti Croft keeps painting a rosy picture of the economy. Through my years of observing the markets and mainstream finance media is that people employed in the financial service industry have to lie to the public.

She keeps things upbeat by using words like “improving” and “growth” , which are just flat out lies. Remember, bankers jobs are to keep you spending money and investing so they can make money off you in interest and fees, that’s it period.

To get to the point, the American government cannot repay all the debt it has accumulated. America has borrowed way too much, like a teenager with a brand new credit card.

In the next decade, be aware and prepare. As the U.S dollar is going down, because the rest of the world will not be buying U.S bonds/treasuries as the U.S government institution prints more money. Possible hyper-inflation might be coming.
