Motley Fool: Here’s why you should invest

By Ray, posted 23/02/16 at 6.00pm.

This is an article from the Sydney Morning Herald. It is talking about the three mainly reasons why we should invest. The first one is that long-term investing can provide you with a very nice return on your money. Another one is that invest is to avoid having your nest egg ravaged by inflation. Thirdly, to invest is that you are saving yourself from ‘well’ you. Even though it is not legitimate that you spend your money immediately, your future self will thank you for your invest of spare cash.

Personally, I agree with the author’s opinion. Circumstances are wary. Today, you may be rich enough to meet the shopping desire. The day after tomorrow, you would be possible to be stuck in a heavy debt. However, the invest of spare cash can make a contribution to prevent you from the effect of inflation and unexpected accident.

 

Some new vocabulary I found:
in case = imaging that the case happens
        nest egg = the money you save for prospective need
legitimate ways = reasonable or legal ways
spare cash = the money which is left from your daily spending

The poorest or the richest

This article from BBC News Australia. It talks about one Australia town in northern New South Wales named Delungra. In terms of revenue this place is really a poorest town with a mean taxable income of $21,691, but for its residents this town is full of sentimental value. “The smaller the community, the more people are going to put their hands up” a cattle farmer said. I agree with him, rich or poor never could be evaluated by money but by the real feeling from people.
