The Federal Reserve has reversed course and will likely be keeping interest rates low for a while. Good news for borrowers, bad for savers and retirees. Bond interest rates are at one hundred year lows. Once upon a time, a million dollars in treasury bonds would pay a retiree seventy thousand dollars a year, guaranteed for ten to thirty years. Today, that same ten-year treasury bond is paying under two and a half percent, meaning you would be tying up your money for ten years at a measly twenty-three thousand dollars a year. Today, learn which annuities can still pay you an income of seven percent for life, without risking a penny in the stock market and while remaining in control of your principal. Then health and Medicare insurance expert Shelley Grandidge joins us for the Q & A. A big show you don't want to miss. 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!

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!

In investing, knowledge is power. To paraphrase Benjamin Graham's investment advice--Warren Buffett’s mentor--you should strive to know WHAT you are doing and WHY. If you don't understand the game, he said, don't play it...and Stay away until you do. Being honest, most of us would say we DON’T actually understand the market. It has gotten so massive and unpredictable, pretending to know every aspect of it is foolhardy. Even Warren Buffett, during his brilliant career, only worked within a slice of the market—companies that he grew to understand very well and companies that made real money in the real economy. Buffett took a mathematical and systematic approach to investing. Today we'll review exactly how to do that, then health insurance and Medicare expert Shelley Grandidge joins us. A great show for you today...MASTERING MONEY is on the air!!!

Where do your beliefs and opinions come from? If you're like most people, including me, you honestly believe that your convictions are rational, logical, and impartial, based on the result of years of experience and objective analysis of the information you have available. In reality, all of us are susceptible to a tricky problem known as "Confirmation Bias. This is especially true when doing research on Google for information on annuities.

Then Steve has seven questions you need to ask about annuities before you choose. A great show lined up for you today, don't miss it! MASTERING MONEY is on the air!

HOWEVER, most of his work is focused on getting TO retirement, with very little emphasis on how to invest for income and preservation AFTER retirement.

With the market all-time high's, many believe this advice is a disaster for retired investors. We'll reveal some details that may shock you! Then Steve has some very timely tips for building retirement wealth the SMART and SAFE way. Mastering Money is ON THE AIR!!
