Daniel Solin: The Smartest Investment Book You'll Ever Read

HT: Robert Wasilewski

Daniel Solin presenting his book  The Smartest Investment Book You'll Ever Read at Google headquarters in 2007.  A long video on index investing, but worth the watch.  His message is straightforward.  Asset allocation across three funds---Vanguard Total Stock Market, Vanguard FTSE All-World ex-US Index, and Vanguard Total Bond Market--- will place you in the top 5% for long-term performance.  Not exactly a strategy that will get anyone the cover of Money Magazine, but cheap and simple is good.

  1. Dan Solin's book "The Smartest Retirement Book You'll Ever Read" is also worth reading. It is a 2 - 3 day read in which he covers a lot of important topics. If it was up to me people like him would be leading the financial literacy movement in this country. He has a talent for cutting through all the extraneous stuff out there and getting at the essentials.
