Product Description

With the bursting of the stock market bubble, and after 13 rate cuts by the Federal Reserve, yields on CDs and money market funds tread at historic lows—a negative return after inflation. Gone are the days when investors could earn 5 percent interest, risk-free. With smaller savings coupled with lower returns on what savings remain, retirees and others living on fixed-income investments watch in horror as their income checks shrink with each passing month.

However, there are investments that still earn a significant rate of return—and do so reliably and consistently. These fixed-income securities include bonds, real estate investment trusts, preferred stock, emerging market debt, and annuities, among others. They earn the kind of returns that baby boomers and the retirement community need in the same way they need to draw breath, yet hardly anyone knows anything about them.

As 70 million Americans reach retirement age in the next 15 years, fixed-income investing will become a sociologically inevitable mega trend. Yes, You Can Be a Successful Income Investor! shows you how you can safely secure the highest possible yield from your savings, even in a treacherous investment environment.

Ben Stein, a nationally renowned “Renaissance man,” hosted the long-running quiz show Win Ben Stein’s Money. He is a former White House speechwriter, Wall Street Journal and American Spectator columnist, trial lawyer, law school professor, scriptwriter, and novelist—and author of several self-help books on finance. He has seen the biggest (Richard Nixon) and the most famous (many Hollywood stars) ruin their lives. He has also seen how some seemingly ordinary people made something great of their lives—by doing the opposite of what he sees as ruinous acts and modes of thought. He lectures nationally on finance, politics, and how to improve one’s life.
