Net Worth

If your present situation in this economy is such that you’re not in the top 5% of the wealthy in this country, you’d better start looking to find out what, if anything, you can do to ensure that your standard of living when you retire will be sustained and supported by the assets you then have.  If 60% of Americans have no net worth, I will bet that in ten years that percentage will rise to 85% — Not a very good outlook.

  1. Not to worry, the government will take care of them, or so they believe. AND they seem to be right, at least in their minds for now. Look at all the "social" programs out there. I understand on average that in Nevada and several other states you can make more on welfare than working, according to the latest info from the CATO Institute.
