Retirement investments are being affected by numerous economic factors, and Absolute Wealth’s The Gorrie Details daily editorial column has investigated the current state of IRAs and determined the best ways to preserve their value.

Written by Absolute Wealth Managing Editor James R. Gorrie, the column touches on the good ol’ days, when the stock market returned steady gains and buy and hold investors actually made money.

Unfortunately, wrote Gorrie, that’s no longer the case.

“The long term buy and hold strategy of most IRA mutual funds is not a safe way to really build value, nor is it realistic in today’s world. But that poses a dilemma for the American investor: To utilize the tax advantages of an IRA, the choices are risk the money in the stock and bond markets, or let it sit in low interest money market accounts,” Gorrie said.

“The larger point is that as the world became more integrated, and the ability of the United States to manage the world diminished, both the stability and the predictability of the market began to change. Worse, the financial fraud and corruption that pervades the financial world has eroded the validity of and integrity of the system in the eyes of many investors,” he claimed.

Gorrie’s thought-provoking articles on macroeconomic issues bring an impactful and no-hold-barred writing style to the events that effect both the private and public sectors.
