Why a 401k might not be the great investment you’ve been led to believe.

I’m a guest of Jon White, author of the book:
A Tale of Two Houses – his journey of buying a home the right way after buying one the wrong way.

What’s covered in this audio:
What’s happening to your money when you give it to Wall Street?
How annual fees are stealing your future wealth.
The less work you do investing, the less profit you make.
The take away? 401k investing might not be what you think it is.

Interest

You’re borrowing the purchase price and you’re borrowing the interest paid. At the same time. Two loans, not one. Look at your amortization schedule. A – Mort – ization – Mort means death.

What is interest?
Rent for the use of the bank’s money.
They didn’t have it to lend anyway. You created it when you signed the promissory note.

$100k loan @ 4% interest for 30 years. You pay back $100k.
And you pay back $72k interest or rent for the use of the banks money.

$72K divided by $100k = 72% interest, not 4% as you’ve been lead to believe.

You don’t question it because the monthly payment fits into your comfort zone.

So you borrow $100k and payback $172K. You have to earn $172k plus (for example) your 25% tax bracket. You have to earn $172k plus $43k to payback the loan. That’s you earning $215k to pay back a $100k loan.

Fact: When you “borrow” money from a bank, the bank doesn’t have the money. You are literally creating the money when you sign the Promissory Note. And they’ve convinced you to pay back your money PLUS interest. What does this mean to you?


Tammy from AK replied: “Well if the devil danced in empty pockets, he’d have a ball in mine. Makes me ambivalent.”

When you choose to remain ignorant about how money really works, you are actually part of the problem. You can become part of the solution.

Family-money

1) If we’re going to borrow money, why from a bank?
2) Why not from a family member?
3) Not having the money to lend is why we don’t.
4) Knowing people’s business is why we don’t.

– Draw up a promissory note. Take collateral (if possible). If a family member is irresponsible, don’t lend. If you borrower from a family member, pay it back. Don’t assume you don’t have to and it’s OK just because it’s family.

– Decrease dependency on banks (strangers), keep wealth in the family/community, teach each other to save/build wealth. Stop giving money to corporations that don’t care about you (Wall Street).
