Bob Barker joins the ER ranks

No, not that guy, I'm talking about the Business Week writer.

Robert Barker just published his final column.

Here's what he says in a rare demonstration of financial advisor credibility: "The column is ending its run because I've decided to begin what I (buoyantly) hope will prove a stimulating early retirement." Looks like he may actually have been following his own advice for the last seven years.

Dory, perhaps you should offer him a special invitation to drop by the board...


Spring 2020: my daughter and I wrote “Raising Your Money-Savvy Family For Next-Generation Financial Independence.”
Author of the book written on "The Military Guide to Financial Independence and Retirement."

I don't spend much time here— please send a PM.

Hey, if you were Bob Barker of the Price is Right fame, would you retire? Hmm...surrounded by beautiful women, people begging for my attention, making people do stupid games to win prizes, etc...

He had one of those rare smiles with a quality of eternal reassurance in it . . . It faced, or seemed to face, the whole external world for an instant and then concentrated on you with an irresistible prejudice in your favor. -- The Great Gatsby, F. Scott Fitzgerald

Re: Bob Barker joins the ER ranks

Sounds just like my old job!

Bob Barker is Ted's nickname when he sees a dog in another car and cant stop woofing.
Be fearful when others are greedy, and greedy when others are fearful. Just another form of "buy low, sell high" for those who have trouble with things. This rule is not universal. Do not buy a 1973 Pinto because everyone else is afraid of it.
