I must admit my reason for purchasing "Wealthy by Design" was foolish. Remember the "Buckets of Money" primer Raymond Lucia used as a centerpiece for one of his investment books? During her appearance on a morning faith-based TV program, Kimberly Foss used jars, instead of buckets, in which to divide money each pay-day with accompanying lists of where the money goes each week/month. At the conclusion of the designated period, any remaining money is designated for savings/investments. After viewing this clever clip, I hoped that the rest of "Wealthy by Design" would be packed with handy money-saving tips. It took only a couple of hours of browsing to conclude that this book may have been a perfect investment primer during the 1990's.
The initial impact of Dodd/Frank legislation on banking, hedge funds and Wall Street manipulators, as well as undisciplined injections of Quantitative Easing (Federal Reserve Bank monthly printing of $85 billion invested in stocks and bonds), appears to have lost planned effectiveness with passage of time. Five years later, hedge-funds managers, Wall-Street insiders and elected representatives seem to have renewed an inside track to wealth-building. In the meantime, small investors are confronted with restrictive regulations, including levying of fines to discourage mutual fund "market timing", discouraging this aspect of the American Dream.
Mounting fears include the hazardous impact of pending discontinuance of Quantitative Easing upon stock market stability, destined to result in skyrocketing interest rates and inflation for all Americans. This will obviously result in widespread financial devastation!
