How do you Handle Newly Acquired Wealth?

I am flabbergasted by how many seemingly smart people are inept at handling newly acquired wealth or how some can create a fortune exceeding $1 billion in a few years and then blow it all up faster than they acquired it.

 

This goes for professional athletes, entrepreneurs, actors, rock stars and lottery winners. Even those kids of baby boomers who find themselves with a minor inheritance can find lessons to learn in here.

The key is recognizing that your new found wealth is not an ongoing revenue stream, but more typically reflects a onetime windfall.

 

Why is that? Because you never know what the future holds no matter how much you plan… and because most importantly it’s real hard to replicate being in the right place at the right time.

The Federal Reserve’s True Agenda and how to deal with it

Following up on my blog of July 15, 2010 entitled “Why Reshaping the Federal Reserve is today an Absolute Must”  I thought I’d share these thoughts with you, demonstrating the Federal Reserve’s true agenda in the economy today, and why reshaping the Fed is again needed more than ever at this juncture of our country’s economic history.

 

In fact, contrary to popular belief, I frankly believe that the Fed has spent the last two decades creating the illusory “wealth effect” in people’s minds; knowing very well that what they do has no direct effect on the economy. If you can drive the market up 50 percent, people feel richer…and happier.

 

The Fed basically wants us to go out there and buy stocks, which are overpriced because bonds they have manipulated into being even less attractive. So, we’re being forced to choose between two overpriced assets. Plain and simple.

Media is Most Effective Weapon of Mass Oppression Humanity

Seventeen years ago, I read a book called The Evolving Self. Though I didn’t realize it at the time, it profoundly affected the direction of my life.

Since reading that book, I have dedicated my life to coming ever closer to getting a glimpse of the universal order, and of our part in it.

After years of research and analysis, I’ve come to the conclusion that we, in fact, live in a neo-feudal society built on debt and mental slavery.

That may sound like over-the-top rhetoric, and it obviously sounds extreme to propagandized and conditioned minds, and yes, it is extreme. However, it is the unfortunate reality of the present situation. The facts are there for the rational and unbiased mind to absorb and comprehend.

Let’s start by giving some context and perspective on present circumstances by breaking down some economic data. As Thomas Jefferson once said, “Enlighten the people generally, and tyranny and oppressions of body and mind will vanish like evil spirits at the dawn of day.”

The Challenges and Opportunities in Turkey

Challenges and Opportunities Turkey

Challenges and Opportunities Turkey

Turkey is today at the center of the world with on one side Russia, on another side the Gulf countries, and on the other side the Central East Asian countries., it is without a doubt turning into a tourist and financial and investment center in the region second to none.

Having bounced back from its own profound financial crises in 1994 and 2000, Turkey is indeed well prepared today to ride out the current global economic storm.

With the bank’s capital adequacy ratios at more than 17% — it is clear that Turkish banks are today very liquid and stable, even despite the adverse global market conditions we are facing.

Because of the country’s political stability since 2003, its financial market stability, and the liquidity of its banks, investors are today flocking to Turkey to invest in there.

In the last 30 years for example, and up to 2003, Turkey had only $5 billion or $6 billion in foreign direct investments. Since 2003, the country have had more than $15 billion to $20 billion in direct investments as equity.

Creating Wealth in Today’s Economy Ziad K Abdelnour

International dealmaker, Ziad K Abdelnour talks about the various rebels he has learnt from. He read over 300 biographies and even got to meet some of these rebels.

 

Ziad talks about that to be the best at what you do you need to think “outside the cube’, this is essentially what a ‘rebel’ does.

 

Ziad K Abdelnour personally invests in very few companies and talks about how important it is to not only know the product but the people that run the company. Things do go wrong in business, but if you have a good team they can turn things around.
