Father Guido Sarducci's Five Minute University

Post by mlebuf » Tue Feb 17, 2009 11:51 pm

I remember watching this with great amusement on Saturday Night Live many years ago. Now, someone has put it on YouTube. This is one way to hold down college costs.

Could this be where Kiyosaki, Robert Allen, Wade Cook and other financial infomercial gurus went to school? :D

Father Guido Sarducci is a comic genius! His SNL skits are hysterical. Just clean and funny stand-up comedy with fresh material.

Father Sarducci inspired me to offer an online college degree in Finance and it's even cheaper than his 5 minute college degree (it's free):

Spend less than you earn and dilligently invest the difference.
Tolerable loss x 2 = Equity allocation.
Diversify globally with index funds.
Minimize fees and taxes.
Reduce equity exposure as retirement approaches.

That's it.
