My Comments: I was favored recently by the publication in the Gainesville Sun of an article I wrote that referenced Donald Trump as an existential risk to the US. Because such articles are limited to 750 words or less, there was no reference by me to the historical performance of the economy under Republican or … Continue reading These 5 charts prove that the economy does better under Democratic presidents ...

My Comments: Full Retirement Age is that month, according to the Social Security Administration, where you gain some real advantages. I have some reservations about Sean Williams’ comments since he’s not yet old enough to understand the emotional side of financial decisions when it comes to retirement income. However, the headline resonates with me as … Continue reading 3 Smart Reasons to Take Social Security at Full Retirement Age ...

My Comments: Like everyone, I could use a crystal ball. Since they don’t exist, I have to turn to writers with a far better understanding of what’s going on than I have. To that end, these words from Larry Fuller are helpful. Fortunately, he avoids many of the big words that too many pundits use. … Continue reading The Great Unwind Is Upon Us ...

My Comments: It really helps to sometimes see life from 50,000 feet. This article does that for me. We get caught up in the crisis of the moment, which happens all the time. And depending on our age, we focus on what we need to do today. My focus is helping people create a worry … Continue reading You’ll Never Get ‘There’ When It Comes To Your Finances ...

My Comments: My experience with our health care system comes from two sources. The first one is my 43 years as a licensed insurance agent. I saw health insurance premiums increase roughly 10% every year. The health insurance premium increases were largely a result of ever increasing costs, driven by the hospital industry, the pharmaceutical … Continue reading 70% of Americans say our health care system is in a “state ...

My Comments: I feel very fortunate in that I have few regrets after 77 years of life on this planet. Which is good since I can’t go back and do things differently. I suspect that’s why my entire focus today is what I can get done today and perhaps influence the future. I have no … Continue reading This Is What Retirees Would Do Differently If They Could Go Back ...

My Comments: This was clearly written by someone not yet fully versed in the subject. He’s young with expertise in picking stocks for future gain. Unfortunately, this is typical of what a reader finds when searching for ideas about their retirement and how to make critical financial decisions. There are far more than 3 questions … Continue reading 3 Things That Affect When You Should Apply for Social Security ...

My Comments: There are some well known market pundits out there whose advice can be taken seriously. But not always. We know historically stocks outperform most other kinds of traditional investments over time. That if you are accumulating money to use in the future, and that future is a few decades down the road, then … Continue reading Should you really do nothing amid all this market volatility? It depends ...

My Comments: This comes from the Washington Post which you will agree is not a right wing publication. Almost every day there is a statement or observation that runs 180 degrees from what I’ve learned over the past five decades in business. It’s frightening to me to realize we are going backwards as a nation … Continue reading Trump’s ‘America First’ means Americans lose ...

My Comments: For those of us who preach retirement planning, much of this is old hat. But for those of you just starting to get serious about thinking retirement, these are all valid concerns. But before you rush out and spend money, you need to better understand how you want your life to play out. … Continue reading 5 Facts You Didn’t Know About Retirement → ...
