The Cup Is Really Half Empty

Reports are that this year the Social Security fund will pay out more than it actually takes in.  Entertainment costs are increasing – try going to the movies or to a sporting event.  The healthcare reform bill has been signed.  The war in the Middle East is a constant vacuum which never gets full.  Do you see the recurring theme here?  Expenses are rising but there is no mention of revenues rising for individuals like you and I.

This should make both you and I look a little differently at our budget and what we spend our money on.  Right now is the time more than ever not to be optimistic but be realistic.  We need to examine our investments because this is the time, more than any other time, which we need to invest in assets.

What are you going to invest in?
