“The eagerness to spend more casually and live a noticeably rich lifestyle gets more intense with each generation. Put simply, earning a dollar yourself tends to make a person a little more cognizant about how that dollar is spent.” -Natalie Schmook

Banks are keeping billions of dollars from Americans…  Right now, according to the Financial Industry Regulatory Authority, about $350 billion is sitting in brokerage accounts earning an average of 0.12%. That’s about $420 million in interest.  But if all those people with that cash just sitting there moved it to an account earning 1%, the interest earning soars to $3.5 billion a year.  That’s like leaving nearly $3.4 billion in free money on the table.  Make your money work for you.  Stop letting these banks steal your interest.” -David Eifrig

“Even if you buy a car with cash, you are forfeiting the opportunity of investing that cash and earning a return on it. So even people who always ‘pay cash’ still experience the same implicit trade-offs between spending now versus later…the real question is whether you are going to obtain your financing from a bank controlled by outsiders, versus a bank that you control.” -Robert Murphy

“Make smart spending decisions. Stop thinking that because you’re earning more money, you should be spending more. Your future wealth is determined by how much you save and invest, not by how much you spend.” -Mark Ford
