Being able to comment and read comments is an excellent addition to the information contained in an article. It seems that Firstliñks readers are a well informed and financially competent mob. Pity that we seem to be in a minority.

Please have an option to get an email with only new articles, no repeated articles from previous emails. Even better, only new articles from all Morningstar email streams.

Hi Peter, you can choose to receive just the one Firstlinks email per week via email preferences (or send your request to firstlinks@morningstar.com). Thursday's email contains our new articles and Sunday's update has added market commentary and highlighted Morningstar articles.

Thanks for letting us provide you with feedback on our interests. Anyone who is considering relocating overseas on retirement has found useful information about options for pension transfers, tax and legal issues? I mentioned this in my survey response but wonder if commenting it here may elicit comments from others.

Your coverage of superannuation- and other retirement-related matters is first rate.

I try to keep a stable portfolio and I find the heavy emphasis on stock picking is not useful and is usually ignored in favor of articles of a more general nature.

Welcome to Firstlinks Edition 566 with weekend update

Here are 10 rules for staying happy and sharp as we age, including socialise a lot, never retire, learn a demanding skill, practice gratitude, play video games (specific ones), and be sure to reminisce.

Australian housing is twice as expensive as the US

A new report suggests Australian housing is twice as expensive as that of the US and UK on a price-to-income basis. It also reveals that it’s cheaper to live in New York than most of our capital cities.

The catalyst for a LICs rebound

The discounts on listed investment vehicles are at historically wide levels. There are lots of reasons given, including size and liquidity, yet there's a better explanation for the discounts, and why a rebound may be near.

How not to run out of money in retirement

The life expectancy tables used throughout the financial advice and retirement industry have issues and you need to prepare for the possibility of living a lot longer than you might have thought. Plan accordingly.

The iron law of building wealth

The best way to lose money in markets is to chase the latest stock fad. Conversely, the best way to build wealth is by pursuing a timeless investment strategy that won’t be swayed by short-term market gyrations.

Latest Updates

Financial planning

Our finances should enable and not dictate our lives

Most people would prefer to have more money than less of it. But at what point do the trappings of wealth and success start to outweigh the benefits of striving for more?

Economy

This vital yet "forgotten" indicator of inflation holds good news

Financial commentators seem to have forgotten the leading cause of inflation: growth in the supply of money. Warren Bird explains the link and explores where it suggests inflation is headed.

Shares

Emerging market equities are ripe with opportunity

Emerging markets offer compelling value compared to history and the stretched valuations of developed market equities. Investors can benefit from three big tailwinds, but only if they are selective.

Taxation

Tomorrow's taxpayers pay for today's policy mistakes

Less affordable housing isn't the only thing set to weigh on Australia's younger generations. If new solutions for pension deficits and the use of resource revenue aren't found quickly, tomorrow's taxpayer will foot the bill.

How would a switch to nuclear affect electricity prices?

The Coalition's plan to build seven nuclear power stations in 15 years faces scrutiny due to high costs and slow construction. And it is unlikely the investment would yield cheaper energy for Australian households and industry.
