Thanks to all who submitted questions to our new financial advice column.

I am not an economist or a political pundit. I am going to resist the temptation to wander into areas where my opinions have little value. Like why Mattel apologized to China, the financial ramifications of the war with Iraq, the "fair tax" or how to save the social security system.

My goal is to deal with investment issues that are troubling you: How to invest intelligently so you can enjoy a decent standard of living, pay for your health care, educate your children and plan for your retirement.

In this inaugural column, I tried to select those questions that addressed these issues. I welcome your comments and suggestions.
