What If Everybody Invested With Index Funds?

Plenty of people have asked me, “What if everybody invested with index funds? Would the strategy reach a danger point?”

Currently, index funds represent about 14% of the money in the stock market.

But if you want to read what might happen if everybody jumped on board…

    Hi Andrew,

    Have just finished reading your first book Millionaire teacher and planning on starting the next one. I am an International school teacher and another colleague of mine recommended your book.

    I have searched everywhere for advice and no one has been as helpful as your book, unfortunately I still have sooo many questions and don’t know where to turn.

    I have just moved to Thailand so I am not sure how to best start investing. I have no debts and have actually just started payments on a house in Europe. This will lessen the amount I am able to save but I would like to put something in place.

    Can you please advice on where I can turn, or if I should try and open an account in a nearby country to start investing, etc? I am not sure whether I should contact a firm like Vanguard to see if it is possible to invest with them?

    Finally one question I have from your book is, how much do you need to start investing. That wasn’t clear to me. Should I start investing small amounts every month or should I save and invest when I have a certain amount?

    Some companies seem to require quite big amounts of money before you start investing?

    Thank you for your Help

    Great! Thanks, Ill start on your other book soon! Will need to wait a while before I start investing then because I want to try and pay off the house I have bought as fast as possible! (like you did with your property!)

    Not American, half Spanish so planning on retiring in Spain. Any recomendations on a brokerage for europeans?

    Again, based in Bangkok!
