As members of the Millennial generation, authors Alex Karidis and Bradley Garrone know well the economic woes that have befallen their generation. However, it is not only the Millennials affected by poor policy decisions. Old and young alike, even those who are yet to exist, will have to deal with the consequences to some degree-thereby exposing investment opportunities in disguise. Interested in assisting others on how to navigate through such economic difficulties, Alex and Bradley wrote The Cynic’s Guide to Investing. A hybrid analysis of economic policy, trends and demographics, and investment strategies, The Cynic’s Guide to Investing is a must-read from the novice, to the most experienced policy wonk, to the skilled investor and everyone in between. Written in a concise manner, The Cynic’s Guide to Investing covers a vast array of topics from fiscal and monetary policy, to healthcare, energy markets, lobbying efforts, and of course investment strategies and much more. It will be highly evident from early on that with money comes power and with power comes the ability to influence markets (think big government-big business). This power structure has invoked passionate dissent from both the right and the left (think Tea Party and Occupy Wall Street). The Cynic’s Guide to Investing cuts through the divide-and-conquer tactics revealing more common ground than what the media would have you believe. Written in a no-nonsense manner, Alex and Bradley change the perception of cynicism from having pessimistic connotations to one attributed with keen observation. The cynic simply makes observations and has the audacity to tell it like it is. The goal of The Cynic’s Guide to Investing is to make observations, conduct thorough analysis, and take action in order to build wealth and provide for your future self. “…that power of accurate observation which is commonly called cynicism by those who have not got it…” -George Bernard Shaw

Product description…

After two and one-half years of futile Obama Administration economic policy – dominated by failed Keynesian-inspired Government Spending initiatives and subsidies – emphasis must now, finally, shift to directly incentivizing Employers monetarily, through tax policy, to again begin hiring. However, to a nation reeling from a net loss of 8 million jobs since 2008, rather than more of the Bush Tax Cuts for the Wealthy, the optimal Private Sector Jobs Creation Solution can beachieved, through targeted tax policy, that will financially incentivize Private Enterprise to hire; but, without the necessity for adding a single “upfront” Dollar to the Deficit or National Debt. Specifically, the lucrative Sustained Jobs Creation Tax Credit, as recommended herein, could create as many as five million jobs over a two-year period, while at a projected “back-loaded” cost of only $63 Billion. By comparison, that $63 Billion projected cost is less than 10% of the entire cost of the Obama Stimulus Bill. Indeed, at an average cost per job of $14,000, the Sustained Jobs Creation Tax Credit is tens of thousands of dollars less when compared to 1) the Obama Stimulus Plan ($238,000 per job); 2) the “Cash for Clunkers” program ($86,000 per job) or 3) the “Cash for Caulkers” program ($80,000 per job). Additionally, in conjunction with imperative and comprehensive Corporate and Individual Tax Reform, this book describes exactly how to financially incentivize Existing, Established Businesses and U.S.-based Multi-National Corporations, in particular, to finally move their collective $2+ Trillion of capital currently “sitting on the sidelines,” both domestically and overseas, back into the United States and invest it in Job Creation in this country. Once achieved, a recovery of a projected eight million sustained, long-lasting American jobs – along with meaningful and justifiable Social Security and Medicare payroll tax reform – could, indeed, result in a balanced Annual Federal Budget (as detailed herein) within just five years.
