Subject: 20629/38790 - Re: Derek Foster on CBC about his new book

I think that part of the problem here is the Derek Foster sold HIMSELF as a brand. He's "Canada's Youngest Retiree. He did it and now you can, too."

And now he's changed his mind, changed his philosophy and his brand is destroyed. Who is going to take him seriously now that he's working...and yes, it's working...for those options.

He always said that he wasn't an economist. We get it. There's a risk. He decided that it was too great, so he jumped ship. Everyone's entitled to their own investment philosophy. However, when you SELL that philosophy to others by selling your books, you make your philosophy fair game for comments.
