Why Traveling In Mexico Is Both Safe And Great


OK, if you read U.S. headlines, you wouldn’t visit Mexico.

I get that.  The media smears Mexico.  It’s like reporting on Jennifer Lopez’s looks, but focusing on a wart she might have on one of her toes.  No image or talk of her lovely face and body.

If you think Mexico is dangerous, let me change your mind.  The country has more than its share of beauty. 

And it’s safe.

Canada’s mutual fund managers could be depressed. 

And why wouldn’t they be? The money they manage gets throttled by index funds. 

Psychologically, how could this affect their day to day work?

An Index-Beating Strategy For Fearless Dividend Investors

 rainbowTwenty-five years ago, Michael O’Higgins began to write a book.

The Miami-based money manager wanted to share something simple: an investment strategy that he had used since 1978. The strategy took just 15 minutes a year.

But Mr. O’Higgins said it would beat the market.

He completed the book in 1990. Titled Beating the Dow, it began to fly off bookshelves.

Read to find out whether his strategy has stood the test of time in my article.

Much has changed since boatloads of starry-eyed immigrants followed the first settlers.

But one fact remains.  There are still plenty of financial perks to living in the USA.

What International Teachers And Administrators Need To Know About Investing



Robert Landau knows a thing or two about teaching.

He has worked overseas for four decades. 

He has spent the past 25 years working as a school superintendent in Switzerland, Indonesia, the Czech Republic, China, Cambodia, and Singapore.

But there’s one thing that bugs him.  A lot. 

“Many schools allow investment ‘salesmen’ through their doors. But they rarely research the advisors, their firms or the products they sell.”
