  • Broke Now, Rich Later has an interesting post about emergency funds. I'm not a huge fan of large emergency funds unless you're high risk. I think they're kind of a waste because there are other things you could do with your money that's more productive. I think that if you have decent credit lines that are empty you might be better served by putting your money into a balanced fund. They're more agressive than cash but not ultra volatile so odds are against you taking a huge loss at the wrong time. I particularly think that having an emergency fund while you are carrying credit card debt is a waste of money.
