schlagheckcov.jpgTax Day is approaching, the markets are turbulent, and people are wondering how to move financially. So we talked with Jim Schlagheck, producer of public TV’s Retirement Revolution and author of The Cash-Rich Retirement: Use the Investing Techniques of the Mega-Wealthy to Secure Your Retirement Future. The book is interesting, action-oriented, and — in my opinion — more conservative and realistic than a lot that I’ve read. Our discussion includes what to do financially, how the housing bubble and the “coming demographic storm” of Baby-Boomer retirements are likely to affect investments, and what economic problems will confront the next President.
