I would be much more concerned if organizations traded my physical address with my IP address.

Consider it done. Only it is not your physical address, it is your physical person. On every street corner, at every shop, in every bank, smile! you are on camera.

Great scare tactic. I'd like to know how those tracking sites get my financial information like he said. The most they get from me is the fact that my IP address accessed a particular web page. They don't know who used that IP address at that time -- just the service provider that hosts it. Also I use Ghostery which blocks all of those tracking sites anyway.
