Why Is There So Much Pessimism in the Marketplace Right Now?

Duration: 8:24

We’re in the biggest bull market in history. The stock market has gone more than 10 years without a serious correction or recession. This year alone, the stock market has returned 20 percent year-to-date. Listen to Ric Edelman explain how this pessimism could be connected to a mistaken measurement.


Celebrate the 50th Anniversary of the Moon Landing With a Nobel Prize-Winning Scientist

Duration: 11:26

The notion of putting a man on the moon was inconceivable when President John F. Kennedy made it a goal in the early 1960s. But what did the moon landing do for you?Listen t oRic Edelman share the top 10 technological innovations that resulted from this herculean effort and talk to Dr. John Mather. He's the senior project scientist for the Webb Telescope and won the 2006 Nobel Prize in physics.


Politicians Aren’t Paying Attention to the Social Security Crisis

Duration: 13:18

Did you notice during the recent Democratic debates that there wasn’t a single question asked about Social Security? This is a huge problem because more than half of Americans say that Social Security will be their primary source of income in retirement, which it was never intended to be. Listen to Ric Edelman exchange ideas with Sen. Rob Portman of Ohio on what we can do to solve this problem.


Where Are You Getting Your Investment Advice?

Duration: 9:48

A recent study found that investors taking a do-it-yourself approach hold more cash than investors working with a financial advisor. The problem is that if you hold two or three times the amount of cash compared to what we would recommend, your portfolio is likely to dramatically underperform. Listen to Ric Edelman explain the worries that motivate some investors to hold too much cash and how an advisor can solve this problem.
