There’s no other greater joy than having financial freedom and a life free of debts, all thanks to Mr Robert, cause he made me who I am today through binary trade. He has helped me a lot with his trading strategies which helps me to earn $12,550 weekly. I really appreciate it and can't help but let others know about it because it is so suitable anyone can trade from anywhere and anytime, you can reach Mr Nicholas on Instagram @nicholasjmyronfx or what sap :+1(518) 633-5966.

no car payments and living in an apt yet they spend over $4000/month, I'm sure they'd have more cash put away if they watch were their money is going.

Republicans still think that’s what every family should be able to do. That’s why Republicans are quickly becoming the party favored by the lowest income earners in the US where the Dems are representing the largest companies and earners (Apple, Google, Facebook, Twitter, Amazon, Hollywood, Music Industry, gaming industry is bending over, every MSM network save for Fox. Even Fox is garbage).

This is what every republican thinks the average citizen can do yet a big company worth billions doesnt make money for a few weeks and it turns into a bailout beggar since it spent all its money on high level bonuses and stock buy backs

They both would need to have set aside just 100$/w to do it, witch doesn't seem that much tbh especially if they say they are intentionally saving and living frugaly. As a couple you can also save a lot on housing and other utilities

At 1:35, you can see the pain in his face, when she says "would i like to be in a different appartment, yes". This is clearly a guy, who wishes to provide the best possible to his family.

Lovely couple! Wish you many years of a happy marriage.
Thank you Business Insider for these videos.
That couple represents the minority in American middle class. Every one else is flat broke due to poor financial literacy.

So individuals are expected to keep 1 years expenses saved, but companies can't survive a downturn for 1 month. Meanwhile the USA treasury keeps interest rates at a level below inflation actively harming those who save, and pumping money into risky investors that cannot keep their own finances stable.
If every American did this the US economy would collapse.
This is simple corporate propaganda pushing the blame from those who have the power to control the situation to those who cannot.

50,000$ thats around 37,50,000 in Indian Rupees. I make 12,000 INR per month. It will take me roughly 25 years to earn that money.

Still would recommend you save some of the money every month on mutual funds or sip and since you are young... you will find in your 40s that your initial savings have compounded to a very nice retirement egg.

I set aside $200 a week I don't make much like, 500-600 a week on like a 30-35H workweek, thing is I dont spend much either my monthly expenses are $500 including rent that excludes gas, food, etc. But still easy enough to set that 200 weekly aside, let's say I give myself 3 decades of saving it without investing in anything which I really wouldn't reccomend due to inflation, thats $312k assuming I'm in the 25-30 range can I retire on $300k? Maybe, maybe not, but that won't really matter, because its essentially just an emergency fund, I'm also not big on home owning, which has its pros and its cons, just gotta be smart with what you spend on, and obviously hope life throws you some luck

Why wouldn't you want to invest any money due to inflation? That's the reason to invest. Even if it's sitting in a 1% online savings account, that's not going to keep up with inflation. That $300,000 could turn into $500,000-$750,000, with compound interest and maybe a 7% growth over time. Only keep your 6 months plus emergency fund in the online savings, and invest the rest.

There's people living frugally with jobs who can barely afford to live paycheck to paycheck. It depends on your job, income, family support... Videos like this are always naive

Cybersecurity Engineer > Counsellor. Let's not kid ourselves. All the big money is coming from the former. Without an IT salary, they won't have money to save.
