Commentator Ben Stein, noted economist Dr. Robert Genetski, and Clark Investment Strategies, Inc. President Neil Delaney present their views on investments and deferred savings in a video presentation released by Clark Consulting, Inc., for its executive compensation and deferred income clients.

He's not fictional. There's a bit of Ferris Bueller in everyone of us.

Commentator Ben Stein, noted economist Dr. Robert Genetski, and Clark Investment Strategies, Inc. President Neil Delaney present their views on investments and deferred savings in a video presentation released today.

The video presentation, accessible to Clark Consulting, Inc., clients and plan participants, explores the new world of investment challenges faced by individuals and families in the wake of the financial meltdown of 2008.

In the videos, produced by Clark Consulting, Inc., CBS News and AP correspondent Fred Yager quizzes the three men about their views on investing, saving and retirement. The interviews occurred in August 2009 in Dallas.

Mr. Stein, a well-regarded financial columnist who also is a Hollywood entertainer, attorney and former White House speechwriter, said he believes investors are correct to be wary of markets but that stashing money under the mattress is not a good solution.

Dr. Genetski, a well-regarded economist and president of classicalprinciples.com, an economic and financial consulting firm, said he believes deferring compensation now makes sense, even if taxes rise, because money free of taxes can be accumulating interest before taxes are paid.

Mr. Delaney, the head of Clark Investment Strategies, believes there are signs of “green shoots” in the market, but the strong oaks he would prefer to see are not so evident.

None of the speakers are “endorsers” of Clark Consulting. Mr. Stein and Dr. Genetski received a fee for sharing their opinions with Clark Consulting and its clients – but the opinions expressed are theirs, not those of Clark Consulting, and neither Mr. Stein nor Dr. Genetski is recommending Clark Consulting services.
