American millennials are approaching middle age in worse financial shape than every living generation ahead of them, lagging behind baby boomers and Generation X despite a decade of economic growth and falling unemployment. New data show that millennials may never catch up with the generations of Americans that preceded them. The Fed analyzed income, debt, asset, and consumption data and found that millennial households had an average NET WORTH nearly 40% less than Gen X households had in 2001, and about 20% less than baby boomer households had in 1989. At the same ages, Gen X men working full time earned 18% more than their millennial counterparts do now, and BABY BOOMER men earned 27% more when adjusting for inflation, age, and other variables. What does this mean to you as a retired investor? Stocks may not keep their values due to weakening demand and the Social Security system may deplete faster than we thought. Today, we'll review the Wall Street Journal report on this alarming trend, and what you need to do now to avoid a coming crisis. Don't miss today's show...MASTERING MONEY is on the air!

Question: do the rich GET rich at the expense of the poor? Many people believe that the rich ONLY become rich at the expense of OTHERS. This world view is called “zero-sum thinking” because its adherents regard economic life as a zero-sum game, just like tennis, where one player has to lose for the other to win. Dr. Rainer Zitelman, writing in Forbes pointed out the flaw of zero-sum thinking. Zitelman was awarded his first doctorate in 1986 and his second Ph.D. in 2016-- and has written 22 books. In Forbes, Zitelman recalled the German poem: “Said the poor man with a twitch: Were I not poor, YOU wouldn’t be rich.” Today, we'll explore how Zitelman blows up that myth in a special evidence-based report you don't want to miss. Then Steve has three key tips for building retirement wealth the SMART way. MASTERING MONEY is on the air!

For over five years, European nations have been trying to jump-start their ailing economies with what was supposed to be a radical, short-term remedy—negative interest rates.  Instead, central banks can't see, to wean their economies off of them. Increasingly, says the Wall Street Journal, negative rates on bank accounts and even treasury bonds appear to be a permanent feature of the landscape says the Wall Street Journal. Could it happen in the U.S.? And did you know why low-interest rates--which are designed to STIMULATE the economy,  can LEAD to recession and DEE-flation, not IN-flation? We'll review the full report, and then Steve reviews key planning tips for building retirement wealth the SMART way!   MASTERING MONEY is on the air!!
