Aren't most ETFs based upon how much time is remaining on the agreement?  If so, then in a sense they are based upon how long you stayed right?

I wish I could even get DSL because were I am Verizon does not want to add more DSL slots so I am paying $50 for Virgin Mobile Broadband2Go and I get under 200Kbps on 3G. I live by a FiOS Fiber line but all I can get from Verizon is Dial-up. I can't even do Online Videogames.

 

There is no 4G in area still.

ETFs should be illegal, plain and simple, nothing should dictate that a customer must pay to quit using something if they've found a better alternative...but if (and hopefully when) they do become illegal, the companies that depend on them might file for chapter 11 (or Chapter 7 if they aren't so lucky).

Well, when you sign up for a service, you are signing a contract that states you guarentee that your going to use the service for x amount of time. One could argue that breaking the contract can result in some sort of penality.

 

However, i think companies should use a different model like "the longer you stay with us, the lower amount you pay."

So, if you wanted to stay for 3 months, it would cost more then someone who wants to stay for a year and so on.

 

However, i don't think ETF's will end anytime soon.

That would be too pro-consumer and not enough pro-investor.

Thing is, investors are just as much consumers as non-investors. In this economic climate they better start waking up to the fact that it is a CONSUMERS market. So, as investors, if they want to continue to recieve the benefits of investing (i.e. consumption, saving etc...) then start behaving accordingly.
