My friend Ric Edelman, a top-notch financial planner, explains Ten Great Reasons To Carry A Big Long Mortgage. We have talked about this on my radio show a few times, and Ric has stunned listeners who were always taught they should pay off their houses as quickly as possible, which he says is a terrible decision.

Ric is working on his sixth book at the moment. I consider his earlier book, “The Truth About Money,” a must-read for everyone.
