    Also, that article about not saving in your 20s… WUT. I just can’t even.

      Though it’s not that surprising– I hear this kind of thing a lot from people who have had one economics class and learned about consumption smoothing but don’t understand compound interest or interest rates. A little economics is dangerous.

      • crazy grad mama Says:

        I had to Google consumption smoothing (no economics classes for me! but we did spend a lot of time on compound interest in high school math). It sounds like it might be a reasonable strategy when applied by people who have a clue, but that applying it properly takes considerable thought.

        The longer I interact with college-educated adults, the more I become convinced that a little ANYTHING is dangerous when it comes to knowledge.

      • nicoleandmaggie Says:

        Hahaha, yeah, that is probably right.

      • Rosa Says:

        consumption smoothing is great for groups of people, or if you can confidently foretell the future for an individual, but it’s super risky as individual advice without magical powers.

        For instance a woman who has kids at 30 may make less money in that decade than in her 20s, if she gets mommy tracked. Just about anybody can get knocked off the career path by illness or calamity. Or you could be in your 20s from 1998 to 2008 and enter your thirties just as the economy crashes.

        Ayup. In Econ 101 we all have perfect information. But Econ 101 is not reality.

    The idea of the Farrelly brothers directing a soi-disant comedy about a black prostitute made me throw up a little. If I were king, they would never work again.
