It’s Women’s Day on March 8th and Nicola wonders where are all the women who are investing? Stop by the Frugal Cottage and drop her a line.
Simba from Compound Your Freedom has put together a summary of what we can learn from Mr Buffett’s annual letter.
Cheesy Finance: Based on this already “old” post by Early Retirement Extreme (ERE), Jacob was able to live off $5.000-7.000 per year, as late as 2011. For argument sake, let’s assume that this $7.000 annual spending in 2011 is now $7.714 in today’s money (2018). This would be about €6.250/year (current exchange rate ~$1.233/€), can you survive on this amount in the Netherlands? How low can you go? In the Netherlands at least!
Cheesy Finance: We just had a great weekend again with a lot of fun people. There was talk about money, dividends, permaculture and ethics, all while enjoying some good Belgian Beer! We also did an interesting (but rather chilly) city tour, courtesy of Amber Tree Leaves. Here is a (visual) Leuven FIRE Meetup Recap! Also, some of the presentations are available for download!
