The problem is that the good stuff is so interspersed with b.s. and is confusing.
Quinn does recommend cash value insurance
On page 296-"Premiums normally stay the same", Comparinh to term, "Policy preiums are level:, "tax protect [cash value]",
"for those who want certaintly"
On page 326 Cash value vs term and a mutual fund. "You will be better served to keep cash value insurance"
On replacing policies, term for cash value, Quinn states on page 328
"You'll be raiding your cash values which may be earning a attractive yield"
On discussing Insurance Fee Advisors, Quinn states;
"Typical fee of $100-$250 per hr may be a bargain"
Quinn also recommends Single premium insurance which is whole life with a tax deffered option. Even annuities are a better choice (although not my choice!)
For most people term or lpt (level premium term) are far better choices than whole life.
5 star reviewer, try reading the whole book!
deal. The books would make great
bookends---that would be the best
use of MsQuinns material! Most of what Quinn offers is basic and general, much is outdated for the
times and in many places, Quinn shows that she is a journalistic paper financial authority only. There is better information out there by authors who are more up on the times and have researched more
carefully their material. .
