The economist, Milton Friedman in “How to Cure Health Care” writes that one of the factors “explaining both the high level of spending on medical care and the dissatisfaction with that spending” is “nobody spends somebody else’s money as wisely or as frugally as he spends his own.” His observation is a crucial factor for […]

I have written about the virtues of HSAs before. But never did it become so clear to me that HSAs can be better than other retirement accounts such as 401(k) and IRA (I had a hunch, though). HSAs have been around since 2003; yet, in my opinion, the HSA is the most misunderstood, the most […]
