This is my effort to share my thoughts with readers about concerns facing our country today.  I believe there is a good chance my grandchildren may be the first generation in the history of this great country not to have a better standard of living than their parents. If so, our generation is to blame. The clock is running out for damage control. .

Money Managers/Investment Counselors Add Zero Value Today

Are private bankers, wealth managers, investment counselors, and money managers only worth their fees in a bull market? It would appear so. They have become collective weathermen. All they are doing today is trying to forecast the timing of the economic turnaround. Or, they spend their days trying to defend the trillions they have lost their clients in the last year. Apologists.

Every day it becomes more and more apparent that 99% of the people who earn fees by advising clients how to invest are not equipped to help clients make money in this economic environment. With few exceptions, none have lived through this harsh environment. That's OK, but for the money the  clients are paying this huge base of professionals, you should expect some would re-train their skill set and adapt to the cards we are being dealt in this economy. How do they justify their fees by saying just hang in there until things change?

A handful of really savvy investors are making money in this environment. They use short sales, gold, and other non-traditional vehicles to do that.

The rest preach the party line. They say,"we will do portfolio re- balancing". Translation." I don't know how to make you money in this economy, so let's try to lose you as little as possible". Next party line. "Trying to time the market is a fool's game, you are investing for the long term, you need to just hang in there". Translation:" I don't know how to make money in this economy, so just pay my fees and suck it up and absorb your losses". 

These experts, custodians of your future, are simply doing nothing and collecting fees. They are totally clueless. They are losing their own future while they lose yours. They have no where to turn to help themselves let alone help their investors. 

At some point at the very near future, we need to consider divorcing these wizards. If the people we pay to protect our hard earned personal wealth are telling us," I don't know how", we need to stop paying them until they figure it out. If you were feeling ill and went to the doctor and got sicker, went back and got even sicker, and finally the doctor said" I can't make you well, I can only make you sicker". would you keep going back? And pay each time you went? Paying these gurus of finance to lose money is no different. It's the epitome of stupidity. We pay people to lose our money and to acknowledge they don't know how to make money today.

This void will be filled. It always is in America. There will be a few professionals who will show us they can adapt to bad economies as well as good ones. They will be very busy.

But, today you are paying for bull advice in a severe bear market.
