I demand that in the (hopefully very) distant future, when the last Last Week Tonight episode airs, he brings on Janice from accounting. She's the backbone of this show! XD

Financial advisors are people who like banking but aren't smart enough nor work hard enough to be in the trading or deal making parts of it. Just like notaries who are just lawyers who haven't passed the bar.

Just looked up “The John Oliver Effect” and dang. It actually is very much a thing and we’re all here to be part of it. Just don’t let it go to your head... John.

Simple solution: invest in S&P 500 - put money into it every 6 months, and never sell the stock

Never stop saving for your retirement so you can retire w/o freaking out and enjoy your 50's - 90's. Sadly my 401K was wiped out, however, I planned ahead and socked away 10% of my monthy income, just in case!

No, don't kill baby Hitler, he's the one that saved most of the world's economy from the Great Depression. Instead, kill baby Jesus, that way the Medieval Ages wouldn't have happened/lasted so long (thanks Christianity), and thus we'd have those couple of centuries for Science and Philosophy.

Glad I didn’t choose to be a financial advisor, it’s a growing job but their scam artists

I miss the days when Last Week Tonight wasn't just the "what unbelievable things did Trump or members of his cabinet say or do this week" show... :(

If you invest 100 dollars a month from 25-65 years of age in a s and p 500 index fund, you will have 1.4 million dollars. We all can be millionaires if we stop buying crap.

As a financial services professional, I can say that this is 100% true. Aggressive sales are heavily incentivized. Very few people do research on their investments. Most just take their brokers word. Don't hesitate to ask your broker how much they will make in commissions if you invested in a certain product. They are supposed to act as a fiduciary but the word doesn't mean much to the unethical assholes out there selling investment instruments. The insurance industry is a magnet for shady sales people because there is a lot of money to be made. Brokers prey on busy people or old folks who are likely to take their word and no do any research. Manage your own 401K. Review it every 3 months. Invest in index funds.

At least your retirement plans actually spit out profits...
In Germany most people will end up with nothing more than the obligatory retirement.
It's called Germany we have 95% of all law texts for a fucking reason, to fuck up our working middle class! XD

Use Vanguard, they are amazing. VERY low fees.
In general, take your age, that should be the % you put in Bonds, put the rest in stocks. Use the entire bond market index and split your stock between the SNP-500 index and the total stock market index. Adjust every year to match your age for % in bonds. This is a golden rule. You can use this and do better than 90% of the people out there because your fees will be so low and their getting killed by theirs in a standard employer plan that's 1.5-2%
