Episode-643- Modern Financial Survival

Financial survival is something that we often hear main stream pay lip service to.   There are countless main stream experts with the formula for a happy retirement and profitable investing on the news and on day time talk shows all the time.  Each claims to have the code cracked yet they all pretty much say the same things.

  1. Save money in the stock market
  2. Put money in tax differed accounts
  3. Debt is okay
  4. Stay away from risky investments like gold
  5. Don’t time markets, invest for the long haul

The problem with such advice is it isn’t actually financial advice, it is well formed marketing to sell a system designed to serve an apathetic society.  A system of passive investing that may or may not pay off and is subject to extensive risk due to its very nature.

Join me today as we discuss…

  • The origin of our current “smart way” to invest
  • Why the autopilot system is dangerous
  • Proof that well know gurus are idiots
  • Why gold or silver are financial insurance
  • Why 100% of long term investing in tax deferred is stupid
  • The current risk for 401K, IRA, etc monies from the greedy hand
  • What is an investment really supposed to do for you
