Warren Buffett has some advice for young people, like college students, who want to remain financially independent. It’s not new and its not a surprise, but it is solid counsel on avoiding a very common money pitfall, and worth repeating:
“The biggest suggestion I have is to avoid credit cards. Interest rates are very high on credit cards. Sometimes they are 18 percent. Sometimes they are 20 percent. If I borrowed money at 18 or 20 percent, I’d be broke…. So if I had one piece of advice for young people generally it would be to just avoid credit cards.”
In the Indian context the percentage is more like 38 to 42% – so If Warren Buffett would have been broke at 18-20%, imagine what such rates can do to your finances!
Warren Buffet had to say this…and he is quoted on the CNBC site…
