The decisions investors make will have a dramatic impact on their future and the shape of our world going forward. In Beware the Financial-Industrial Complex, David G. Shink, CFP shares his view of the forces that must be understood in the pursuit of investment success. No other investment book describes the financial-industrial complex and its influence on our investing decisions. The way individuals see and understand the world, and the monetary choices we all make, will help form our future societal and financial structures. Our lives are filled with difficult decisions that will determine the security we may enjoy in the future, and David's philosophy is to maximize every individual's investments, rather than to make you rich. Investing is a long, challenging, and difficult process. Understanding the forces that shape our choices is critical to our financial success. David takes us through the financial industry's practices and provides insight into where and how the industry's dynamics are formed. Because the recent path of our financial system has t inspired great confidence for investors, we must get back to basics and reflect on the forces that shape our culture and our world in order to make the best decisions for ourselves and our families. David's approach is ideal for those people who may never hit the high net worth jackpot. He shows all investors how to make the most of what they have, without useless comparisons to the ultra wealthy of this world, so that investors at all levels can attain their financial goals and secure their futures.
