Not so long ago, retiring with a comfortable nest egg took some time, but it wasn’t impossible.
That’s because from the late 1960s to 2007, the average interest paid on a 10-year government bond was 7%.
If you worked hard, put money away in a bond portfolio, and reinvested your interest, $100,000 in bonds would become worth $750,000 in 30 years. By the 30th year, you’d have been earning a comfortable $52,500 per year.
Not champagne and caviar money… But certainly enough to have a dignified retirement.
All of that ended when the Federal Reserve decided to wage a “war” against declining stock prices during the 2008 Financial Crisis.
In its frantic efforts to save the stock market, the Fed cut interest rates to near zero. Then, it printed $3.6 trillion in new cash to buy back distressed bonds from its banker buddies.
This was not a victimless crime.
You – the American saver and future retiree – got screwed.
How? Remember how $750,000 in bonds would give you $52,500 a year in income?
Today, because rates are so low, instead of making $52,500 in annual income, you’ll now make about $7,500. So you’d now need $5,250,000 in bonds to equal what $750,000 in bonds would’ve paid you just a few years ago.
Don’t believe the Fed when they say there’s no inflation. How is there no inflation when you need 7x more money to maintain the same lifestyle you would’ve had 20 years ago?
While your interest income has cratered… the wealthy are making off like bandits.
Over the past three decades, the top 10% of U.S. households have seen their wealth rise by 10 percentage points, according to Fed data reported by Forbes…
At the same time, the bottom 50% of U.S. households have seen their wealth cut in half.
In dollar terms, the top 1% of Americans have a combined net worth of $34.2 trillion, while the bottom 50% have a combined net worth of just $2.1 trillion.
Since the COVID-19 pandemic began, billionaires have seen their wealth increase by $4 trillion…
The deck has been stacked against the average American for decades… and the billionaires are laughing all the way to the bank.
If you want to do more than just get by… you must do something different. The “same old, same old” just isn’t going to cut it.
That’s why my mission has been to help everyday Americans find a way to safely bridge this income gap without putting their current lifestyle at risk. It’s the reason why I’ve traveled so extensively and partnered with experts outside my core field of knowledge.
It’s all to help you claw back the profits and income that’s rightfully yours.
It’s Time to Think Outside the Box
As I mentioned above, the 2008 Financial Crisis changed everything…
It demolished 401(k)s and other savings accounts… And it prompted the Fed to start slashing interest rates.
Since then, everything we knew about creating wealth through income investments changed.
Yields disappeared… CDs (certificates of deposit) began paying next to nothing… Annuity streams dried up… And safe stocks that used to pay a good yield went up so much, their dividend yields were driven into the basement.
Today, the yield on the 10-year note is about 1%. Even if you had $1 million, you’d only make $11,800 per year. That’s not enough to cover your family’s health insurance, let alone fund a retirement.
That’s why, if you’re looking to create wealth through income in this ultra-low-rate environment, you must take a different path from everyone else…
Wall Street’s Great Lie
For most people today, the promise of a “dream retirement” has been nothing but a great big lie told by Wall Street. The average American just can’t save enough money to get a decent income on their investments anymore.
No matter how much you put away in your 401k and other retirement accounts, are you really ever going to save up $5 million? Because that’s what it takes if you want a risk-free income of more than $50,000 per year.
Wall Street knows you’ll never hit this number. It’s all part of their great retirement lie that has you shoveling hundreds of thousands of your hard-earned dollars into their expensive financial products.
It’s estimated Wall Street makes $17 billion a year in fees by keeping you wrapped up in its buy-and-hold lie.
They tell you, “Keep your money invested with us for 30–40 years and someday you’ll get financial freedom.”
Here’s the truth: They don’t want you to be financially independent. They want to hold onto your money for as long as possible so they can milk fees out of you for the next 20–50 years.
It’s an amazing deal for them and a lousy one for you.
That’s why I’ve been looking for a way to help you buy back your life. Every so often a rare “Anomaly Window” opens up that allows investors the ability to bring forward 20 years or more of stock market gains.
