As Editor of the Milken Institute’s quarterly economic journal, The Milken Institute Review, and with a Ph.D. in economics from Yale University, Peter Passell possesses an appreciation for the fickle nature of our economy as well as an understanding of proven ways to address it.
In WHERE TO PUT YOUR MONEY NOW: How to Make Super-Safe Investments and Secure Your Future (Pocket Books; February 2009; $12.00), he efficiently tackles the problems facing investors today and poses practical and immediate solutions. Not every investment is right for everyone, Passell explains. But everyone can find a means to a secure future. Readers are encouraged to pick and choose which chapters of the book apply to them, in order to get the answers and hope they need in a streamlined fashion.
Without getting tied up with the how and why of the current financial crisis, Passell offers steps that can lead to immediate relief and long-term protection, including setting up ultra-low-cost mutual funds or government-guaranteed securities; Passell’s tips minimize risk while maximizing returns. Passell also teaches readers how brokered CDs and stock index funds can build a “bullet-proof” savings portfolio.
WHERE TO PUT YOUR MONEY NOW provides timely remedies, while recognizing that as the world of investing is constantly changing, so too must the solutions. To help readers reach their long-term goals, Passell includes a section on websites that provide up-to-the-minute advice.
