Money will occasionally remind its readers that index beating returns are highly improbable in the long run and stock picking as a primary means is not a good strategy for long term wealth building. They offer really nice "what if" and comparison strategies for analysis such as: lease vs. buy, buy vs. rent, or Ivy League vs. state college strategies. Sure they occasionally throw in some esoteric discussion on silly instruments like derivatives or ridiculous low yield bank savings accounts, but for the most part they tend to show reasonable responsibility and restraint by offering advice in the Graham and Dodd tradition.
Let's face it, personal finance is not that complicated. People who think it is are not thinking about it correctly. The tried and true methods aren't sexy and won't sell magazines if they printed the most effective methods for creating wealth every month. Money does a reasonable job providing confirmation of basic and effective investing strategies to the common investor in an entertaining way. However, I'd like to see them take a much more aggressive tone on topics like credit card debt, student loan debt, auto loan debt, etc. like Dave Ramsay does, only without all that religious baggage he loves to impose. It would also be nice if Money would rip apart and expose the scam investments like whole/variable life insurance policies, annuities, and the like. And ya, a little less of the fluffy Suzie Orman type codling would be nice.
I'd like to see Money dive a little deeper occasionally and expose real wealth killers. Here are a few thoughts: why not expose our tax system for the all consuming corrupt mess that it is and rally the masses to change it or at least remind people that it is not set up in their favor as a worker. It is strictly set up for business owners to get the most advantage. Or how about exposing all that old money held in trusts by family dynasties doing nothing to increase GDP and paying little in tax. How about analyzing the impact of the massive boomer generation retiring. Do you really think all of those seemingly ubiquitous "senior" discounts are going to exist for you in the future? Bahahahahah, think again. So many opportunities.
My personal favorite feature is the monthly money makeover. Usually some dopey married couple has pissed away their time and money on ridiculous things like a McMansion, boats, motorcycles, and his & hers BMWs then suddenly find themselves mid-life with little to no savings and a boat load of debt. I laugh at those morons. Money hires a financial adviser to break the bad news to them with a makeover plan that attempts gets them back on track. Good information can be garnered from these analyses.
I take issue with the lack of concern for inflation and ridiculous assumed returns on some investments. TVM seems to elude all financial writers and editors. I guess because it just isn't sexy and it involves a little grade school math. Few ever discuss the real rates of return and the actual real money people will need in retirement. Also, a major pet peeve of all of the periodicals is that they assume social programs will be available to retirees in fifteen plus years. They won't. I guarantee it. Social Security and Medicare are a fraud and should not be part of one's retirement planning.
Bottom line: Money is a good, solid financial publication that tries to offer the common investor reasonable information for making good decisions. Hard to find fault with that mission.
The first issue took at least the 6-10 weeks mentioned, and had roughly 6 pages of interesting/useful information. in the mean time we started going to [...]
and taking their online courses (which are free and give you 60 free days of premium membership upon completion) and learned 25x more than we EVER would have using money magazine.
Would consider myself to be a conservative individual, and this is WAY too far to the left in terms of ideology and editorial content. There is just as much information about corporate execs that now run flower shops (something they come THIS CLOSE to endorsing) as there is meat and potato investing information. Having not read smart money's print edition, or done more than flip through a kiplingers, i can't say that those are better, but if you are looking at this to get started, go somewhere like [...] for their online courses or even MSN money (online) to educate yourself.
p.s. Morningstar is cited as the source for 95% of the information they present in Money anyway, might as well go to the source and skip the biases.
p.p.s. the current cover issue (July '10) some of the best ideas are things like putting yourself 200% into stocks (thats right, to take out a loan) the VERY next page says that most people probably take too many risks in stocks and dont understand how much money they can lose.
we have subscribed for years and enjoy reading
it from cover to cover. We always order thru Amazon
because they have the magazine tracking deal that
makes it easy for me to check and see when all my
subscriptions are up. I wouldn't order a subscription
any other way.
