Investments Management Advisor Jeff Voudrie of Common Sense Advisors Warns That If New Fed Head Continues Existing Policies, Growth Might Be Hindered

Speculation on what will happen to the U.S. economy under the probable new head of the Federal Reserve, Janet Yellen, has run rampant in recent days since her nomination by President Barack Obama. Notable for possibly being both the first woman to head the Fed in its history, as well as the first Democrat to lead it in decades, Yellen’s expected continuance of previous policies could hinder, rather than help the economy, says investments management advisor Jeff Voudrie, a prominent financial advisor in Johnson City, TN.

'Janet Yellen’s expected continuance of previous policies could hinder, rather than help the economy,' says Jeff Voudrie, a prominent financial advisor in Johnson City, TN.

Jeff Voudrie, president of Common Sense Advisors, commented: “While the loose money policies of Ben Bernanke may have been needed after the collapse of Lehman Bros in 2008, it is obvious the continuation of that policy has not had the impact on economic growth that was desired.” Regarding Bernanke’s successor, Jeff Voudrie noted, “Continuing that policy, which Yellen is expected to do, may actually hinder economic growth going forward instead of helping it. That may be why we have seen the stock market begin a retreat since the Fed decided not to taper. The market decline is more an issue of slowing growth.”

Jeff Voudrie, who has particular expertise in several areas, including the development of pioneering software that reacts to market changes (three patents awarded) and how retirees need to plan in a new era of fluctuating markets and slow growth, also clarified what needs to be closely observed if Yellen takes the reins on February 1, 2014, as expected. “The crux of the matter is when and how to begin to withdraw the stimulus without inflicting further damage to the markets and the economy,” Voudrie observed. “We are in new, uncharted territory here,” he added, echoing a point that he has made repeatedly while urging mature Americans to take a second look at their retirement plans.

Jeff Voudrie believes that most of those plans do not fit the new economic realities of post-mortgage crisis America. He advises all investors who have absorbed losses in the past several years, as well as those who are confident that they will have enough to retire on, to undergo a retirement plan “stress test,” which he explains on his website.

Jeff Voudrie has also gained acclaim as a money manager who has dared to question the purveyors of “guaranteed income” annuities, noting that despite what many of those believe, they do not guarantee a 7% annual return on investment and may only average 2% to 3% a year over their lifetime. Voudrie has published books, articles and presented many YouTube videos to warn retirees of this and other dangers to their hard-earned money.
