  1. I think this book is so cool, I’m giving away 50 copies of it at my site 🙂

    Hi guys!
    While I enjoyed your podcast today I do have to say that Tony Robbins is not the first one to write about index funds outperforming most actively managed funds. I’ve been in the investment world and I’ve seen books published more than 10 years ago that wrote about this. So it’s not as if Tony came and rocked our world or anything. However, I guess it’s just human nature to want to beat the index funds especially as those mutual fund people can sound very persuasive with their technical jargon (let’s face it, the average fund investor doesn’t know the jargon, or worse, they don’t even care). Oh, and did you know that a huge part of managed mutual funds are actually ‘closet index funds’? Yes, closet funds. They pretty much actively track the indices but call themselves managed funds to earn a higher fee. What skeevy bastards, eh?
