Actually, I think you're right. Hey, we figured it out, as have so many generations before us, and so will the next generations.

At least some people will.


Out of curiosity, do you talk with your kids about investing and dumb things you have done? I don't have children so I tend to talk to any of the next generation that is willing to listen and has patience. Some of my nieces will listen others.....take after their parents. I watched dad make lots of mistakes and he did manage to do a number of things right. I've found that time has made up for lots of foolishness on my part.
