“If you put the federal government in charge of the Sahara Desert, in five years there would be a shortage of sand.”
-Milton Freidman, American Economist, Author, Statistician, and Professor
Before a tsunami strikes the shore, the sea recedes and exposes huge areas of the sea floor, creating a deadly spectacle for those who fail to recognize the warning signs of impending danger. Some, aware of the danger before them, alert others and scramble to the highest possible ground in a desperate bid for survival. Others, unaware of what is about to occur, walk out onto the exposed sea floor unknowingly and are swept out to sea with the oncoming tsunami.
If baby boomers fail to adjust their legal, financial, and healthcare planning, the fact they missed the warning signs won’t matter, the government tsunami that strikes will be, in many cases, impossible to overcome. We wrote this book because we believe the warning signs are clearly there, if only you choose to see them. The tsunami is already building in:
the sea of governmental program failures that threaten our pensions;
the tax laws that are flooding over traditional estate planning; and,
the waves of healthcare change that will surely affect every American in some way, particularly aging baby boomers and their families.
We believe that you should not have to lose everything you’ve spent a lifetime to earn. We believe that you can stay ahead of the waves if you understand and heed the warning signs.
We wrote this book to alert you to the impending dangers. We believe that if you follow us, we can lead you to higher, safer ground where you and your family can protect and preserve your wealth and well-being.
