The SDSU College of Business offers undergraduate and graduate degrees in financial planning. In my opinion, financial planning and selling investment advice is not an ethical or honest pursuit. Selling and marketing investment products on a commission basis is sleazy and scummy. Most of these investment products use investor money to generate phony investment returns for three or four years and then the investment collapses and the investor loses all. Look at the fiasco with non-traded REITs and the Tenants-In-Common investment scams. I object to SDSU using my tax dollars to fund what amounts to little more than a training program for white collar criminals. I want SDSU to eliminate financial planning from the business school curricula.

Burwell: I hardly think all stockholders and financial planners are corrupt. However, far too many of them of them are out for their own commissions and not their customers' interests.

Peddling non-traded REITs is an example -- high commissions to the broker but lousy returns to the investor. Best, Don Buader
