Ron Paul on Dangers of Inflation

“Planning for a retirement that’s 10, 20, or 30 years in the future is difficult enough, but it’s even more difficult when you can’t anticipate how severe or how frequent market corrections will be.

Markets Are at an All Time High – Why That’s a Problem

Hi, I’m Ron Paul, former Presidential candidate and US Congressman. If you follow the news, you’ll know that stock markets are near their all-time highs. The Dow Jones Index surpassed the 20,000 point mark for the first time this year, and even broke 21,000 points in March. That’s over 4,000 points higher than its lowest mark in 2016. The S&P 500 and the NASDAQ Composite Index are enjoying similarly fast growth.

Ron Paul on Inflation and Retirement

Retirement is becoming increasingly difficult in today’s world. Social Security benefits are meager, and the program itself will eventually collapse under its own weight.

The money you save today won’t be worth nearly as much in a decade or two.
