How is he a quack? He gives fantastic advice to people who are poor at managing money. If you are good with your money then you go to other resources for investing. I think you could use some ramsey in your life considering you think buying shitcoins is investing.

Dave Ramsey's advice is meant for literal 80 iq retards who have a gambling addiction and can't stop taking on debt that they can't pay back, etc. So he gives them dead simple, retard-proof rules that they can follow to stop actively fucking up their lives.
It is not for reasonably intelligent people who don't habitually dig themselves into financial holes like that

>> No.57635361

Dave Ramsey has always said that a mortgage is the one exception to the no debt rule, but he also says you shouldn't do a 30 year. Do a 15 year, and pay extra on the principal as much as you can to pay it off as fast as possible.

It's obvious you don't actually know what his stance is, and therefore you are just a hater. Also probably jewish.

the reason hes popular is because is advice is infallible, its literally 'if you have 5000 and can save 1000, now you have 1000' its basically the most obvious advice someone can give but also sometimes people need to hear that shit.

His advice on debt is good for americans, which are mostly unable to understand the implications of debt and interest on their own financial lives and have a retarded consumer culture.

His 8% withdrawal rate and understanding of the stock market are shit though, like this guy never fucking read "past performance is not guarantee of future returns"

You know how Doctor Phil takes mentally ill people and uses them for entertainment? How Judge Judy takes people who need small claims court and turns them into entertainment? How Jerry Springer does it with people who need sex ed and paternity tests? Dave Ramsey's whole schtick is turning people who've made horrible financial decisions into entertainment fodder for people who aren't particularly financially savvy themselves.

His audience is composed of people who feel insecure that they didn't get an education, who can't afford nice things, and older people who lived most of their lives during a time when credit was less predatory. This audience goes wild for the spectacle of seeing young people with college educations fail miserably due to frivolous spending. The sillier their degree sounds, the larger their debt, and the more lavish their personal expenses are the more his audience eats it up.

It's not financial advice, it's entertainment and validation for an audience that needs their own insecurities assuaged at the expense of the young and better educated.

>next, let's get that mortgage payment down. $3k/month is not possible in this country. call up your bank and give them a firm handshake over the phone, and get that mortgage at around $400/month

I have no idea what his target audience is, besides people who are not from this plane of corporeal reality.

>> No.57638876

His audience is people who are financially illiterate but who aren't in as bad a situation as the people he turns into entertainment fodder.

>> No.57638919

I get that, but his suggestions are not often in line with current market rates. Even the stupid people know the high costs of most things.

>> No.57638961

It has nothing to do with rationality and everything to do with resenting the people asking for advice. His audience won't question anything that he says because they despise the people he's talking down to.

>> No.57638984

I listened to him once, and had to turn it off. His pricing on things were hilariously off. Too many boomerisms (I despise that term, but it seems to apply here) in regards to not understanding what this country is actually like for a working man sub 50 years old.

>> No.57639011

Most of his audience lived during a time where you couldn't get credit very easily (pre 90's) and where runaway inflation hadn't destroyed the purchasing power of average wages. He doesn't have to convince his audience of that which they already believe, just throw them some entertainment in the form of young people going into debt. Better if they're educated, and even better if they have expenses that the 50+ crowd considers frivolous.

>> No.57639380


You still tend to build equity and come out ahead. Home is kind of like a forced savings account for the financially illiterate, it's a way to build wealth that is relatively illiquid and that they can't blow on whatever stupid waste of money is on their mind that week.

But as others have mentioned Ramsey also advocates getting a 15 year fixed rate mortgage and then paying it off early. On average people who follow his plan pay their home off in 7-10 years. Meaning they probably end up paying 1/4 the interest than someone buying the same home on a 30 year fixed would have.
