Main Street Money:
How to Outwit, Outsmart, and Out-Invest the Wall Street Bullies
“I made a killing on Wall Street a few years ago. I shot my broker.” –Groucho Marx
You may not know me – but I know you.
Or, at least, I know of most of you.
Chances are you’re one of the 95 percent of Americans who are destined to retire broke.
It’s not really your fault. Goodness knows it’s confusing out there for the average American trying to secure their financial future. Contradictory advice and information, misleading promises, portfolio-gutting investment strategies – and that’s just from my fellow Wall Street investment professionals.
Maybe that’s why the finance industry’s leading lights can be counted on to say one thing one year and the opposite the next. Market timing? It will never work. Oh wait, yes it can. Asset allocation? A big winner – until a real bear market comes around. Buy and hold? The best thing since sliced bread. That is, until the market tanks and the buy and hold model is tossed onto the scrap heap by so-called market experts.
