Disability insurance doesn't really cover your wages forever. It only partially covers wages... (and that is assuming you have permanent disability, not regular disability) and the point was just that money = stuff in the future. Predominately it's just stuff people want to buy in the future or things they want to do.

Quote: Originally Posted by MetroStyles I really hate to sidetrack my own thread, but I find it very interesting that everyone that is concerned about unexpected issues that require a lot of money to deal with has ignored insurance. I am assuming most posters are aware of offerings such as disability insurance, health insurance, long-term care insurance, etc.? Sure - the poor cannot afford most insurance, but even if you are very wealthy it makes a lot...

Thanks, I'll go with that. I've done significant research in person & online; the data conflicts but I think (given what you've metnioned as a reliable indicator of recruiting in the absence of school stats) my IRL experiences may be a stronger indicator of recruiting.

Seeking opinions: If you want to work in, let's say, Hong Kong, do you go to a local school for an MBA or Masters of Finance or do you go to LSE and get a masters of accounting/finance? What would be better for banking in HK in this ecnomy - local lower tier (MBA or Ms Finance?) or higher tier not local?
You run this site? http://www.leangains.com/ Quote: Originally Posted by Nathaniel72 There are a lot of non-believers and naysayers in here. I'm wondering why people would actually lie about it, or why people would think that. I know I'm not lying when I say mine is probably below 10%, I believe I was tested around 5% last year and I could be wrong, but that is a little different than lying. I also don't believe that you have to be an athlete to...
