I read the short version (missed fortune 101) and it makes complete sense. The mortgaging part is because you can invest with the money from the mortgage, and make more money than the interest. Also, the mortgage is tax-deductible. However, he is wrong about investing with life insurance, because although it is tax-deductible, it still makes less than well-picked stocks (7% vs. 15%)
