“The definition of wealth is the number of days you can survive without physically working (or anyone in your household physically working) and still maintain your standard of living. It’s that simple. It’s not about what you can buy. It’s about your ability to sustain your existence without working.” -Robert Kiyosaki

“This number (10-year treasury note) is probably the most important number in modern capitalism. It tells us the ‘risk-free’ price of money… which is to say, it tells us the cost of borrowing money, or more abstractly, the price of the future.

The more you borrow today, the more time you will have to take away from tomorrow to pay it back. Eventually, you run out of time… and out of luck.

To put that in more concrete (or wood and plastic) terms, the higher your mortgage rate… the longer you have to work to pay for your house.” -Bill Bonner
