Overview

Do you want to take charge of your investments, but don't know where to start?

Are you having trouble trying to navigate your way through today’s turbulent markets?

Do you have a financial advisor you trust, but don't understand what you're told or sold? Or worse, what you're being sold makes sense, but isn't working.

Have you taken an economics class, but still don't understand how the economy really functions?

Do you have a 401(k) plan but no idea where the money should be invested?

Have you suffered poor success with traditional investment solutions like asset-allocation, age-based portfolios, and efficient frontiers?

Did your “Conservative” asset-allocation tank during the financial crisis?

This book will change the way you think about your investments and allow you to invest with confidence and avoid surprises.

Why stocks are over promoted and riskier than you are being told.

The two economic risks every investor must understand to protect themselves.

The two opportunities investors want to capture.

How you can control your risk by using counterbalancing investments to build an all-weather portfolio.

Why compounding is a sales tactic that doesn't work for the average investor.

How to develop a portfolio strategy that changes as the economic risks change. You'll never have to sit and take it again.
