Extra Notes

Selling relative’s unused goods

In chapter 5, Grant makes a suggestion to find unused goods at your relatives’ place and sell them.

If you do take up this idea of selling your relative’s unused goods. You will need to first take ownership of the goods before you sell them. Otherwise, you’re essentially selling stolen goods.

The casino example is a bad choice

In chapter 8, Grant claims that casinos make money because people are not willing to go all-in.

If everyone went all-in. The winners will take all the losses of the losers plus more. Leaving the casino at a net loss.

I don’t agree with the casino example. As that is pure gambling, there is no way to be confident that you will win. But that is not the message, the message is to go all-in and make a big bet - when you are confident that you will come out on top.
