Adults over the age of 50 manage an increasing share of the wealth in the United States. Risky investment decisions that are made as people age may have effects on both financial markets --AND individuals in later life. FINRA, the Financial Industry Regulatory Association, performed an in-depth study recently to assess how many older Americans—those over 58 with far less time to recover from a market shock than younger investors-- were taking on TOO MUCH risk. And for those TAKING too much risk using standard measurements, they wanted to know WHY. Well today, we'll reveal what they came up with in this really interesting study-- and how it might apply to YOU. Then Medicare expert Shelley Grandidge joins us for the Q & A. ...A fact filled show you don't want to miss....MASTERING MONEY is on the air!!
Well, it is Debate Night in America again, provided both candidates pass the COVID test today. The Biden campaign has successfully made the election about one issue: COVID 19. In point of fact, the election is really about the funding of the Green New Deal, higher taxes, open borders, and free health care for illegals. Joe Biden also wants to sell himself as “Middle Class Joe”. But is Joe Biden, who lives in a 7,000 square foot mansion with a ten million dollar net worth according to his public disclosures, really a middle class hero. We have the Forbes report on his rise from a negative net worth in 2009, to ten million dollars today in the Market Intel segment. Then we'll hear from the head of the Pennsylvania Boilermakers Union, who was shocked to hear that Biden claimed they endorsed him. They didn't. You'll hear the whole story....a great show for you today, MASTERING MONEY is on the air!!
We often hear debate moderators ask why The United States has only four percent of the world’s population but twenty percent of the identified cases. The question is meant to sound like a super intelligent one, putting someone like President Trump or Mike Pence on the spot. The answer is so obvious it hurts. If you are an advanced country with an advanced and prolific system of IDENTIFYING cases through a process known as testing--which the U.S. leads the world in-- it follows that you will record and report more IDENTIFIED cases. Today, we'll review hard data from a scientific research team on who really is denying the Covid 19 science--Blue state governors or Red state governors? You may be surprised. Then Medicare expert Shelley Grandidge joins us. A really interesting show you don't want to miss...MASTERING MONEY is on the air!!!!!!!!!!!!
On January 31st, before even one person died, President Trump shut down travel from China. On February 4th, at the State of the Union address, he committed to taking on COVID 19 with the full might of the U.S. government. Nancy Pelosi tore up that speech and instead made a video inviting people to visit China Town in mid February. Dr. Anthony Fauci is on tape explaining why he didn't like mask wearing, while CNN said that the flu was far more dangerous than COVID. It was not until March 11, forty days after Trump shut down travel, that the World Health Organization officially declared Corona Virus a pandemic! Was President Trump's response slow? Today, we'll go over a detailed timeline, in the most non-biased way possible, taken from official published reports from January to April. We report, you decide. Then Steve lays out investment strategies designed to work no matter who is president. A timely show you don't want to miss....MASTERING MONEY is on the air!!!

Presidential hopeful Joe Biden had a rough night at the office last night at his solo Town Hall. He struggled mightily to answer questions and it was the first time a moderator asked, "what are your plans if you lose?" Whereupon Joe said he would "go back to teaching college." (pause) Today, we'll review research by a New York professor of economics who says very little detail can be found in Biden's so called "Made In America" plan, which has a funny ring to it--as in "America First" authored by Donald Trump. Ironically, Biden later criticized Trump for his America First plan, which he says has isolated the U.S. from the rest of the world. He left out the part about how sanctioning Iran has shut down the leading sponsor of terrorism which in turn defunded ISIS, Hesbollah, and others. Terrorism was still rampant when Trump came on the scene-- Today ISIS is wiped out and Iran is dead broke. To be fair and balanced, we will review the New York economics professors' analysis of Mr. Biden's jobs plan, then Medicare expert Shelley Grandidge joins us for a timely Q & A... a fact-filled show you DON'T want to miss....MASTERING MONEY is on the air!!!
It’s a funny thing about real science and hard, irrefutable data. It becomes very hard to argue with! So, when it comes to science and the idea of locking down the economy all over again to try to beat the corona virus (at a cost of trillions of dollars we don’t have) is that really a smart idea? Joe Biden thinks so. He stated to the world on ABC TV that he would be willing to do just that if a scientist told him to. That’s why hard data coming in from Sweden is such an eye opener. Sweden never did a total lockdown. It appears to be ce coming out of the pandemic. The death rate is on the decline. This, as we see massive second waves occurring in European nations like France, who tried what the progressive USA media and Joe Biden believe to be the smart thing to do: completely shut down the economy all over again until the virus is gone. We've got the Sweden report coming up and then legendary Journalist, and former host of ABC's 20/20, John Stossel joins us.

Joe Biden, the Democrat candidate for president, says that Donald Trump does not have a plan to take on COVID 19. He says that Trump doesn't believe in science and has done absolutely nothing to fight the virus. Besides developing vaccines and treatments in record time, leading the world in testing, and figuring out a way to reopen the economy while taking on the bug, you could say Mr. Trump has done nothing. But you would be an idiot. Joe's plan is not that intricate. It centers around two measures mainly: a national mandate for every American to wear masks everywhere, until he says you don't have to, and to LOCK DOWN the economy if a scientist tells him to. Well, the CDC and the World Health Organization have some man-splainin' for Joe: The CDC now says masks are not that effective and the CDC condemns he idea of further lockdowns. We have a detailed report for you today, then Medicare expert Shelley Grandidge joins. A fact filled show you don't want to miss MASTERING MONEY is on the air!!!
As Americans go to the polls, especially undecided and independent voters, there are two issues coming to the forefront: DEBT, and TAXES. In other words, how HIGH can we allow this already massive debt to grow, and how MUCH damage would be done by RAISING taxes in a recession in 2021? Neither of these candidates would win a personality contest right now, so make sure your vote is based on mathematics instead. While one candidate wants to create an entire NEW economy based on renewable energy, promising ten million jobs in an industry that barely exists today, the other candidate wants to simply get back to where we were--pre-virus-- as fast as possible, without reinventing the wheel. ...One wants to keep taxes low. The other candidate GUARANTEES taxes will go UP substantially for all U.S. job-creators. We'll examine and compare the plans in detail, and then have a look at the US DEBT Clock that shows our national debt has reached a shocking figure you may not even believe. We'll then have a special feature report by journalist John Stossel. A very big show coming your way today...MASTERING MONEY is on the air!!!
