In an earlier column I outlined the problems of the cognitively challenged ‘Tania’. Tania is not cognitively challenged because she’s stupid. She is cognitively challenged because impossible demands are made on her cognitive faculties. That’s what I argued with regard to the requirement that she choose where to put her super – not the kind of choice she’s comfortable with.
But, courtesy of Adam Smith’s idea of the division of labour, help is at hand. Some Troppodillians would be cognitively challenged to do what Tania does – teach primary school kids – but not cognitively challenged to choose a great super fund. So I’m hoping they’ll help Tania out in comments below. This is how Tania responded to the column in an email to me.
I am enjoying my continued notoriety, despite my obvious cognitive inefficiencies!
Actually I have been thinking about asking you about my Super, but am wary of encroaching upon your precious time. But now that you mention it, I am currently with ING, so no doubt paying fees etc. My portfolio is mostly OZ shares, from memory. Not much money there now I bet. I have spent a small amount of time researching other options and came across Super orgs that are for members only. But would I need to be a fire-fighter to belong to its Super fund?
Where would YOU put your Super?
