Overview

To understand the economy you have to understand one simple, but unspoken, truth: Wall Street needs money from Main Street, not the other way around. Keeping this secret from the public has been an essential part of the development of the American economy for over four hundred years, but now that you know it—and with advice from Wall Street insider-turned-realist Lee Munson—you have the power to protect yourself and your money.

Rigged Money: Beating Wall Street at Its Own Game explains in detail how the financial industry has systematically worked to convince the public that investing across different asset classes is the only way to protect wealth. At one point this was probably sage advice, but today it's an outdated rule more likely to bring disaster than success. Since asset classes—from small caps and international stocks to gold and bonds—now overlap when it comes to risk and volatility parameters, the diversification effect is gone, and with it, any reason for spreading your money around. It's this change in the financial landscape, and the rules of the game, that Wall Street doesn't want you to know about, and that this book discusses.

Revealing the truth about the system while arming you with the simple, smart, and clear advice that you need to go head-to-head with the financial giants, Rigged Money provides advice to investors on what Wall Street is doing behind your back and how you can use the same techniques and knowledge to level the playing field.
