Do not believe anything a politician tells you. It’s in their interest to tell you what you want to hear, and that can be a wide margin away from reality and most likely is.

Be doubly skeptical about threats that require further increases in government spending.

Do not fall in love with bloggers. Anyone who can write reasonably well can now project themselves into the public discourse. People who can actually think, on the other hand, are another thing altogether. Learn to tell the difference.

Follow the money. If someone, or some company, tells you something the solution to which directly or indirectly benefits them, be cautious. That’s not to say that a company that offers products or services that solve various real problems won’t be truthful and genuinely helpful. But when you read something by some guy ranting against gold ETFs and then find out the guy’s a coin dealer, an extra dosage of salt in your diet is required.

Find trusted sources, but even then keep your skeptic’s hat close at hand. In the face of the onslaught of information – true or otherwise – there are opportunities for honest and impartial hard research to help others get to the facts. But that does not mean you should not continue to question them at every turn.

While we believe we will are interested in your welfare, that does not mean that somewhere along the way we cannot slip up or just get something terribly wrong.

In the final analysis, it’s your life and your money – and that means you have the most to lose by picking the wrong path forward.

Those are just a few thoughts.

 

 

The facts no one wants to read.

Comments and referrals to this blog would be greatly appreciated.
