    Great post. Any advise for parents with much younger children (4 and 2)? Also, why would Katie choose Vanguard’s S&P 500 over VTSMX?

    Thank you,

    Hi Andrew

    Just wondering if there are any stockists of your book in Singapore?

    When I was in high school in Vancouver in the 1970s David Ingram was a guest speaker in one of our classes. I will never forget how he demonstrated that just diverting the cost of a pack a day cigarette habit into GICs would yield a million dollar retirement nest egg. (In the 1970s cigarettes were a lot less expensive but GIC interest was a lot higher too.) I wasn’t a smoker and I don’t know if he convinced any of the smokers in the room to quit, but I never forgot his presentation.
