Synopsis

Today's financial landscape and what Wall Street doesn't wantyou to know

Rigged Money is based on one simple truth: Wall Streetneeds money from Main Street, not the other way around. Thefinancial industry has convinced the general public that investingacross different asset classes is the only way to protect wealth,but this is an outdated rule that no longer applies.

Since asset classes—small caps, large caps, internationalinvestments, gold, and bonds—now overlap when it comes torisk and volatility parameters, the diversification effect is gone.That's exactly what Wall Street doesn't want you to know—thatthe rules of the game have changed.

  • Risk Isn't Constant: Pie charts lie when it comes to accuratelydescribing the risk of stocks and bonds
  • Dividends Are No Silver Bullet: They are designed to enticeinvestors rather than to increase a company's value or your networth
  • Buy and Hold is Dead: The financial world (and all thecompanies and securities in it) moves too quickly and is changingtoo often for this theory to hold true today
  • Gold Is Not an Investment: Gold is today's currency of fear,and this fear is driven by escalating government debt

An unflinching look at this new financial world, Lee Munson'sRigged Money arms today's investors with the simple, smart,and clear advice needed to level the playing field.
