The Magnificent Five: Some Ridiculously Kind Words from Tren Griffin

I’m literally blushing at some praise from Tren Griffin, proprietor of the 25iq blog and one of the smartest guys on the financial web. He gave me and a few of my colleagues a great moniker – and yes, I’m totally having the varsity jackets made up…

What I like best about Ben Carlson is that he is young and very savvy about not only investing but the tools of social and other forms of modern media like Twitter and Tumblr. Too many of the people I write about who are able to teach others about investing are, well, either old or very old. People like Ben Carlson, Patrick O’Shaughnessy, Morgan Housel, James Osborne and Josh Brown (the Magnificent Five) represent the next generation in financial writing. They are fearless in confronting financial advice poseurs of all kinds. That they all are moving swiftly into media formats like video makes me hopeful they can successfully combat more of the hucksters pushing “easy wealth in seven steps” style schemes. I am rooting for them, especially when they go after people like constantly self-promoting old coots flogging their financial flim-flams that hurt ordinary investors. The way they attack promoters of high sales loads and hidden fees with these new tools inspires me. When these Magnificent Five go after the “bad guys” I am always cheering them on.

The coolest thing about this is that I know the other four guys personally and have hung out with them offline. They mean what they say and are the real deal. I’m totally flattered to be associated with this crew.
