If you want to be secure in this new world economy stop trying to invest in the market and go out and make some real money. There is a revolution happening like never before where people are either giving themselves over to the system or getting out of the system.
We now have economic slavery by choice ,a system where people work hard and then give their earnings over to a financial system that gives very little back. This self imposed slavery takes on many names like retirement planning and stock market investing. It is really is a plank check to take your life savings and do anything and everything an institution desires, in the hopes of making more money but without any of the responsibility of having to perform.
You think I’m being to harsh because you do not understand exactly what happens in the halls of the investment world. If you knew how you were regarded by the real players in the market you would never put a dime in the stock market. Instead you would store your money in accounts with guaranteed returns and look for businesses with real returns that you could OWN.
Revolutionaries don’t follow the crowd into the abyss
Imagine going out and buying something for $200.00 and selling in for $1000.00. Subtract the cost to acquire a customer from your profit and you have made real money. Making real money is a revolutionary act because you are not supposed to ever get to the point where you realize that the only real profits in this world are the profits made on buying and selling, and they are available to everyone. Learn to sell or deliver a product to people that they are willing to pay for and you join the revolution. Forget waiting to open an account statement every month to see if you made or lost money, that’s for sheep.
Almost every person in America knows someone who made a million dollars or more in some form of business but very few have ever met anyone who made a million dollars in the stock market. Yet we believe in the fantasy of the 401k, IRA, 403B, and the Thrift Savings plan. The whole market crashes at least once every eight years but since 1978 we Americans feel the need to be in the stock market investing game. Why?
The very computer you are reading this on was purchased by the store that sold it to you for no more than half of what you paid and it was manufactured for no more than half of that. Think like a consumer and get broke. Think like a seller and get wealthy.
If you believe that the system you are investing your savings into is a fair one I encourage you to devote some time to read three insightful books that give first hand accounts of actions of Wall Street. Once you read these books you will understand perfectly why the bond market crashed in the 80s, the tech bubble burst in the 90s and the whole market crashed in 2008. More importantly you will understand why it must happen again.

A look at the world through the eyes of a fund manager who bet that nobody in the financial markets really knows what they are doing. He bets against the smartest guys in the room and wins big as they endanger whole economies.

For Revolutionaires Only
Making money by providing goods and services is revolutionary because it is old school. It’s a “something for something” sort of deal unlike Wall Street investing which more often “something for nothing.”
