Quando chiedete alla maggior parte delle persone, vi diranno che non si sarebbero mai aspettati che il movimento FIRE diventasse…così popolare. Rinunciare ai piaceri della vita e risparmiare più del 50% del reddito per andare in pensione a 30 o 40 anni non è una cosa facile da fare. Nel 2020, il movimento FIRE è al suo apice. Purtroppo, questo significa che non c'è più un aumento, l'unica via da percorrere è quella di scendere. Ogni giorno si vede la storia di chi si è ritirato in anticipo e di come ci è riuscito. Ecco come si sa che il FIRE è al suo apice. Ogni investitore sa che quando si vedono le notizie sulla stampa, non si può investire perché è troppo tardi. Ma di solito è un ottimo momento per vendere. Gli investitori cercano di prevedere il futuro. Costruire la vera ricchezza non significa solo fare soldi. Ad un certo punto, hai visto persone povere e povere felici e ricchi infelici. Secondo le ricerche, il rapporto tra felicità e denaro è piccolo. I seguenti dieci principi vi aiuteranno a raggiungere la vera ricchezza, personalmente e finanziariamente. Diventare profondamente motivati - Il denaro non può essere considerato una motivazione profonda. La ricchezza finanziaria ha dei benefici esterni. Con il denaro si possono avere grandi conti bancari, case di lusso, ecc. ma non si può comprare la felicità. Poiché gli obiettivi esterni hanno dei limiti intrinseci, essi limitano la vostra motivazione.

Throughout 99 percent of human history, life expectancy at birth was less than 18 years. Few people had a chance…to age. Today, thanks to extraordinary medical, demographic, and economic shifts, most of us expect to live long lives. Consequently, the world is witnessing a powerful new version of retirement, driven by the power and needs of the Baby Boomer generation. Consumers over age 50 account for more than half of all spending and control more than 70% of our total net worth – yet are largely ignored by youth-focused marketers. How will work, family, and retirement be transformed to accommodate two billion people over the age of 60 worldwide? In the coming years, we'll see explosive business growth fueled by this unprecedented longevity revolution. What Retirees Want presents the culmination of 30 years of research by world-famous "Age Wave" expert Ken Dychtwald, Ph.D., and author and consultant Robert Morison. It explains how the aging of the Baby Boomers will forever change our lives, businesses, government programs, and the consumer marketplace. This exciting new stage of life, the "Third Age," poses daunting questions: • What will "old" look like in the years ahead? With continued advances in longevity, all of the traditional life-stage markers and boundaries will need to be adjusted. • What new products and services will boom as a result of this coming longevity revolution? • What unconscious ageist marketing practices are hurting people – and business growth? • Will the majority of elder boomers outlive their pensions and retirement savings and how can this financial disaster be prevented? • What incredible new technologies of medicine, life extension, and human enhancement await us in the near future? • What purposeful new roles can we create for elder boomers so that the aging nations of the Americas, Europe, and Asia capitalize on the upsides of aging? • Which pioneering organizations and companies worldwide have created marketing strategies and programs that resonate with the quirky and demanding Boomer generation? In this entertaining, thought-provoking, and wide-ranging book, Dychtwald and Morison explain how individuals, businesses, non-profits, and governments can best prepare for a new era--where the needs and demands of the "Third Age" will set the lifestyle, health, social, marketplace, and political priorities of generations to come.

By R. Paul Stevens, Clive Lim. 2021
A guide to investing in heaven and being &“rich toward God&” Christians often hesitate to talk about money in spiritual contexts,…but in the gospels Jesus talks more about money than about &“religious&” topics like prayer and heaven. Money Matters advocates following Jesus&’s lead in engaging with matters of economy and finance in a faith-driven way, in both our individual and our corporate lives. The authors draw on their contrasting life experiences to offer a well-rounded look at money in the twenty-first century. Paul Stevens, who grew up well-off in Canada and worked as a carpenter, a banker, and later a pastor and professor of theology, finds a complementary voice in Clive Lim, who grew up without money in Singapore, and now works there as an entrepreneur and head of a family investment firm. With frequent scriptural references, Stevens and Lim offer insight into navigating the economic systems of today, aiming to help individuals, churches, and societies become faithful stewards who store up &“treasures in heaven&” by investing in the kingdom of God. Money Matters is a comprehensive yet accessible guide to integrating one&’s faith with one&’s approach to money. Just as the Bible variously treats money as a blessing, a sacrament, and a problem, so do Stevens and Lim approach this matter judiciously—avoiding the prosperity gospel on one side and the demonization of material wealth on the other. Capitalism is treated as what it is: a system that has created widespread opportunity and relieved poverty for millions while also exacerbating the gap between the haves and the have-nots. The authors&’ wisdom is at turns theological, historical, and practical—and always focused on what it means to live with faithful integrity in our contemporary global economy.
