HAPPY NEW YEAR! I know I’ve been MIA recently, but for good reason. A VERY close family member was in the hospital over the break so my family and I spent Christmas in the hospital. As I stayed in the hospital for a few days, I thought long and hard about health care costs in America. I have some strong observations as to why healthcare costs are so high and will continue to remain high unless fundamental changes occur. I’ll post my thoughts next week!
Click here to see my current net worth. Overall, an increase in net worth of $17,637 since my last update early December.
The major drivers of the increase were:
- Investment gains in the market
- Debt continuing to trend downward
Overall pleased with another month of gains. I will have to wait to see how the new “fiscal cliff” deal will affect my net worth net year. Thankfully, the income tax increases won’t affect me too much, but the payroll tax increase will hit everyone, and I have yet to see how the new taxes on rental income and capital gains will affect my returns.
