Help You Achieve Your Financial and Life Goals." This meeting of the Charlie Brennan Show Book Club will be recorded for broadcast on KMOX.
Think, act, and invest like the best investor out there: Warren Buffett. While you can't invest exactly like he does, Think, Act, and Invest Like Warren Buffett provides a solid, sensible investing approach based on Buffett's advice regarding investment strategies.
When it comes to investing, Director of Research for the BAM Alliance and CBS News blogger Larry Swedroe has pretty much seen it all--and he's come to the conclusion that simple is better, that adopting basic investing principles always increases an investor's chance of success, and that Buffett is an excellent model for such investing.
In Think, Act, and Invest Like Warren Buffett, Swedroe provides the foundational knowledge you need to:
Develop a financial plan to help you make rational decisions on a consistent basis
Determine the level of risk that's right for you, and allocate your assets accordingly
Build a low-cost, tax-efficient, globally diversified portfolio
Manage your portfolio by rebalancing periodically to maintain proper risk levels
The beauty of the Buffett approach is its profound simplicity: follow the basics, keep your cool, and have a sense of humor and humility.
The market volatility of recent years has ushered in armies of economists, forecasters, and other so-called experts whose job it is to explain how everything works. Somehow, they have managed to muddy the waters even more.
The truth is, investing is easier than you think--even in today's economy. "Complex problems can have simple solutions," Swedroe writes. Think, Act, and Invest Like Warren Buffett helps you go back to the basics--so you can leap in front of the investing pack.
