81. Spending Every Dime – Is It Feasible? -

Ray’s Take In the good old days, when you retired you got a gold watch and a pension and didn’t worry about much else.

Investment management was somebody else’s problem. You watched the sunset, not CNBC. This gave way to more recent retirement planning where you worked 30 or 40 years, saving along the way and when you got to 67 (or older) you quit, and lived on your Social Security and 401(k) savings and sometimes some part-time work. If you did it “right” you withdrew a set percentage of the funds and lived comfortably until age 85, as long as you didn’t hit some kind of devastatingly expensive health event.

87. The Corporate Inquisition Of Intuition -

While there are clear benefits of data and analytics when applied to growth efforts, a widespread, unhealthy dependence on a purely analytical approach to business cripples too many corporations.
