Ted Bauman’s workday usually begins around 5 am, where he researches the latest trends regarding the most important topics to readers and subscribers. Over the years, he has noticed a growing trend amongst his audience, in being that they are becoming increasingly aware of the declining nature of the US economy. This has prompted many of them to ask questions, while also seeking new and applicable solutions. According to Ted Bauman, many of these problems are a result of the free capital movement, which is void of adequate governmental regulation. Although he is not a proponent of government involvement in these issues, the fact that his audience is aware of the circumstances, and are willing to find solutions, signifies a monumental shift.
As an economic expert, Ted Bauman consistently champions financial sovereignty, as well as the protection of accrued wealth. In order to do so, he recommends developing a balanced point of view regarding the stock market, as well as investing in both, stocks and bonds. Because of the monies available through stock investing, most investors seem to negate investing in bonds. By his estimation, this is an oversight, as investing in bonds can help to protect your wealth during times of market volatility. Investing in bonds allows the investor to accrue wealth through monthly dividends, instead of daily fluctuations, and have historically been deemed much safer than their counterpart.
