One-Sentence Financial Rules – Business Insider

Finance

There are 56,956 personal finance books on Amazon.com. In aggregate, they contain more than 3 billion words.

This seems absurd, because 99% of personal finance can be summarized in nine words: Work a lot, spend a little, invest the difference. Master that, and the other 2.999 billion words are filler.

The most important finance topics don’t require details. Most can be, and should be, summarized in a sentence or two.

Take Two ‘Normal’ People, Add Money To Just One Of Them, And Watch What Happens Next

by Brandon Weber

Science can explain a lot of things that I’ve always wondered about (go, science!). In this case, it explains what I’ve known for a long time but been unable to quite understand: Why do some folks who have a lot more money than others seem to be less nice and more evil to everyone around them?

At 0:50, someone actually takes candy from babies. No, really. At 3:00, we start to see the science unfold before our eyes. Entire management courses could — and should — be taught with the bit starting at 4:40.

What is your money relationship?

Money gives a sense of pride to some. It is a means of expressing love to others. Our money relationships can be positive depending on our motivations.
“I started thinking about everything in my life that I pay for – from my home to the food I feed my kids. I love my kids and I love my home and when I pay money to house and feed, I am really expressing love. I am Paying Attention with love in the form of money. That is the only thing that is really happening. Money is simply a means of expressing love. From this moment on, every opportunity that I have to give money or pay with money, will be intentionally Laced and Graced with unconditional love, gratitude and appreciation.

Here, I thought I was the one giving, but I received a great deal more than I gave.”

HSBC Sued By Atlanta-Area Counties Over Predatory Lending Claims.

ATLANTA — Three Atlanta-area counties have filed a lawsuit claiming that British bank HSBC cost them hundreds of millions of dollars in extra expenses and damage to their tax bases by aggressively signing minorities to housing loans that were likely to fail.

The Georgia counties’ failure or success with the relatively novel strategy could help determine whether other local governments try to hold big banks accountable for losses in tax revenue based on what they claim are discriminatory or predatory lending practices. Similar lawsuits resulted in settlements this year worth millions of dollars for communities in Maryland and Tennessee.
