This week's episode is about America's next big crisis and how to prepare for it.

I'm not an economist, but I do study many experts and most of them are saying that America is headed for a crisis…a perfect economic storm brought on by lack of retirement savings and an aging population whose ability to work is diminishing.

“But Ray…aren't you usually the positive thinking, ‘look on the bright side' kind of guy? What's with this fear talk?”

I AM a positive thinker…But I am not one who ignores reality. I don't think it takes an expert to know that millions of people exhausting their savings, borrowing against their home equity, and exiting the marketplace is going to cause hardship in the not-so-distant future. BUT – there IS a bright side – One of the brightest I've ever seen! I'll share it with you in this week's episode.
