    Thanks Kevin, everything you have said here is absolutely true. This, in my opinion, is the best balance between risk and return. Thanks from Australia.

    How is it that in 2008 you were around 0, but not in the negative?

    Kevin, there is no way you're getting 43% returns on average investing in index funds. Please elaborate.

    Do I see a "66 to '80 plateau? Not as bad as '29 to '54, still…..Personally I would not rely on index funds because P/E ratios are all around the places. Tesla/Amazon stocks look great, but they have terrible P/E ratios, living in a bubble, not to say another planet. Those index funds are greatly influenced by these bubbles waiting to burst. IMO, I don't trust a straight 10% expectation… you might face a long plateau as well… I work with 4.5-6%, still worth investing. You mentioned average +43% returns…. can happen only with massive speculation, not index funds obviously.

    Can you do a video about college savings plans? I've seen you mention Medical Savings Accounts, Roth Accounts and 401ks but what about College savings for the kids? Is it worth it?

    Great video. Very informative. What is your opinion on the housing market vs the stock market? Is it a good idea to sell my investment property to invest in stocks?
