There are approximately one hundred and thirty million Americans working full time in the U.S. right now–the most in U.S. history. Of that one hundred and thirty million people, the biggest percentage—ninety one percent– work either for a large or small corporation. That means one hundred and eighteen million Americans work for either a large or a small corporation. Those workers are tax payers, paying into FICA and the IRS. Yet we often hear how evil corporations are from socialist democrats like Kamala Harris, Liz Warren, and Barack Obama.  But getting away from politics, what stimulates the economy better–tax cuts for individuals, or tax cuts for corporations who create jobs? We’ll take a hard, logical look at it today as voters go to the polls…Don’t miss it–MASTERING MONEY is on the air!!

One of the oldest fundamentals of investing is diversification.   It helps to offset the many risks we take when we invest capital. We all try to diversify. however, here’s the problem:  when you diversify, it’s true you could lose less, but you could also MAKE less! In fact, its almost guaranteed you will make less because those two-dollar-bets on the five horses that finish out-of-the-money dilute or even sink your gains on those that come in one, two, or three.  This is why bucketing your capital into distinct and separate financial buckets, each with its own task and time deadline is so effective. Today, Steve will demonstrate how to diversify your holdings– with bucketing– to increase your income, lower your risk, and grow your money over time. MASTERING MONEY is on the air!

…He’s the average American in exaggerated form—blunt, simple, willing to fight, mistrustful of intellectuals.  A Yale professor writing in the Wall Street Journal says that’s the real reason Democrats hate Donald Trump!  Every big U.S. election is interesting, but the coming midterms are hitting the stock market. The Professor from Yale says the real problem for those on the left is that they have no issues to run on. The economy is booming and America’s international position is strong.
