By Robert G. Yetman, Jr. Editor At Large More money advice from Robert Kiyosaki. Robert Kiyosaki, the author of the bestselling Rich Dad Poor Dad, has a message for Millennials in his new book, Second Chance: For Your Money, Your Life and Our World. Namely, that instead of following the historically “tried and true” rules like going to school, getting a job, working hard all of your life and saving as much as you can, that younger people should do it all differently now. Now, those who want to get ahead should embrace the reality of low interest rates and... Read more →

Does The Bible Predict A 2015 Financial Collapse?

Does Bible prophecy actually tell us anything about the state of the U.S., and even world, economy? In Blood Moons on Wall Street, a new video presentation available exclusively to members of Christian Money Plus, Jim Paris discusses the possible cues that the secular financial community may be unknowingly taking from the Bible here in 2015. The Shemitah refers to the Biblical Sabbath year...and coming every seven years…as celebrated in Ancient Israel, a year in which debts between the Israelites are voided and during which lands are left unattended by farmers, so that those lands may be given a chance...

I don't know if you remember the old TV show The Equalizer. I absolutely loved this show. Edward Woodward was perfectly cast as the main character, Robert McCall. The Equalizer was a retired spy that used his background and special skills to help ordinary people get justice (when the authorities were of no help). By the way, if you missed it, the movie version starring Denzel Washington came out just a few weeks ago. The movie version was a bit more violent than the TV show (see trailer below). You have to love The Equalizer because he was ready, willing,... Read more →


Tom Sightings has written a great piece for the online version of U.S. News & World Report that details both retirees’ typically most substantial expenses, as well as some ways to limit each. There’s actually a lot of good information inside of what is a relatively brief piece; to what is surely no one’s surprise, expenses like housing, health care, and taxes make the list. It is, of course, a great idea to limit one’s expenses in retirement whenever possible, but the reality is that many people will find it to be extremely helpful to double their financial power in...

According to a new survey that hit the streets today, courtesy of Bankrate.com, we have learned that over one-third of all adult Americans have yet to save anything towards retirement, and more than one-fourth of Americans in the 50 to 64 age bracket have nothing saved. These are startling figures, in one sense, but unsurprising, in another; while retirement planning has been a priority topic in American society for many decades now, the dedication to living as well as possible (more about “living well” in just a moment), as well as a deterioration in economic opportunity for many, have conspired...

The Paris family has fallen into the habit over the years of keeping entirely too many financial records. My wife, who will readily admit this, simply keeps everything. We have boxes of financial receipts in our garage that go back more than twenty years. Well, that is going to all end this week. I ordered a nice sized shredder and we are going to dispose of dozens of boxes of old receipts, tax records, canceled insurance policies, and more. This week's article is the result of my own research trying to find an answer to the question, "What financial records... Read more →


Of course, we are all aware of the financial collapse that has slowly taken place in Detroit over the last decade. The city has been left in the unusual circumstance of becoming the caretaker for thousands of abandoned houses. In some cases, the homes have been bulldozed - entire neighborhoods were simply demolished. The remaining empty homes are now being auctioned off with hopes that people will return to the city, stake their claim, and become part of its next chapter. As you will see pictured below, these appear (at least externally) to be decent looking houses. You can browse... Read more →


One of the most popular topics on the blog this year has been Bitcoin. Many of you already know my own story of putting $20 in Bitcoin in October of 2012 and watching it grow to be worth $1,400. Now that the whole idea of virtual currency has really caught on, I wanted to investigate what other opportunities might be available. I have been hearing a lot of buzz about a new virtual currency called Ripple. In fact, many believe that Ripple is the next Bitcoin. To read my past articles on Bitcoin, click here.

From $12 To $900 In One Year, Why It's Not Too Late To Buy Bitcoin

I decided to take a serious look at Bitcoin for the first time in October of 2012. I was well aware of the digital currency, but did not think an article was warranted. It was, however, increasingly becoming the subject of questions we were receiving from readers. As part of my initial research into the digital currency, I purchased a modest $20 amount. This was primarily to go through the 'buying' process which can be a little involved, and was integral to my piece. At the time of my purchase, the cost of a single Bitcoin was only $12. My...
