For the past century, a public pension was an ironclad promise. ..Whatever else happened, retired policemen, firefighters and teachers would be paid. Period.  That is no longer the case, according to a report in the Wall Street Journal.  Many cities and states can no longer afford the unsustainable retirement promises made to millions of public workers. By one estimate they are short $5 trillion dollars, a deficit amount that is roughly equal to the output of the world’s third-largest economy, Japan.  Today on Mastering Money we'll reveal which age group of public pensioners are MOST at risk, and how to add a pension resource to your financial plan from a regulated institution with a legally required surplus to back its guarantees. THAT, and much more, today...

How much of a difference do dividends really make? If you had invested $100,000 in 1988 in pharmaceutical giant Johnson and Johnson and chose not to reinvest dividends, you would have over four million dollars today. BUT,  If you HAD reinvested your dividends, you could have over NINE million dollars today! And, if you decided to start spending those dividends this year, you would have over two hundred and fifty-five thousand dollars of pure dividend income to spend or reinvest, your choice. All from a one hundred thousand dollar original investment, adding no other money!  Today, we’ll show you how to put together a workable plan for financial independence to last a lifetime--even if the market crashes by 50%.

Reinvesting dividends is one of the most powerful tools available for boosting investment returns over time. It’s not opinion, it is traceable, trackable, mathematical fact. As an example, investors in the MSCI World index fund who had invested $1,000 dollars on January first of 1993, would have seen a total accumulation value of $3,231 dollars by March of 2018. That works out to a 324% increase—a very nice return. And, without dividends reinvested, it represents an annual growth rate of 5.9% net of a fee. But by REINVESTING all dividends, the same one thousand dollars would have grown to $6,416, nearly twice the raw index. With dividends reinvested, buying the identical original stocks, the annualized return would have been 8.3% and the total return over 640%! Today on Mastering Money, we'll explore exactly why and how a quality dividend reinvestment portfolio can grow capital systematically and mathematically, often with less risk. We'll also see how pairing dividend stocks alongside annuities can grow your net worth. MASTERING MONEY is on the air!!

Trucks moved more than 70% of all U.S. freight last year and generated $719 billion dollars in revenue, according to the American Trucking Associations. But the industry needs to hire almost 900,000 more drivers to meet rising demand! The problem? Millennials simply don't want the job! According to an industry analysis, just one truck was available for every 12 loads needing to be shipped at the start of 2018, which is the lowest ratio since 2005. The average age of a commercial truck driver in the U.S. is 55 years old. Truck drivers are now getting paid more than ever and the case for self-driving trucks is getting stronger than ever. Find out what it means to you, your kids, and your grandkids on today's show, plus some real-world advice on annuities. MASTERING MONEY is on the air!!

On today's show we have the facts on exactly what compromises--and Who Owns-- the U.S. National Debt!! That and much more! You don't want to miss it! ....MASTERING MONEY is on the air!

As machines get smarter, there is a persistent fear in the minds of economists, policy makers and, well, let’s face it--everybody: that Millions of people will become irrelevant-- and jobless. Bill Gates is on record saying that forty percent of ALL the jobs currently being done by humans will be obsolete, and done by robots by 2025—only seven years from now.  McKinsey Company says that up to 350 million jobs worldwide will be affected. Can this be a good thing for the stock market and your investments in retirement? And what about Social Security--it's already slated for insolvency by 2034. Should you be investing for the way things are today, or the where the world is headed?  You've got questions, we've got answers. MASTERING MONEY IS ON THE AIR!!
