Investing in Wall Street and Main Street

Eric Garland Uncategorized Leave a Comment

We know the economy doesn’t work for everyone. It works great for Tim Geithner (who just took a big job in private equity this week) and not so great for the workers of Walmart, who need handouts to eat on Thanksgiving. How can both economies work simultaneously? How can you prosper – and retire! – in such an environment?

That’s what my friend colleague Jim Lee works on. He’s a financial adviser and futurist who helps clients diversify their investments (of time and money) into both the traditional and the emerging. Sure, he knows his way around stocks and bonds, but he also keeps a close eye on the sharing economy, alternative currencies, time banking, farmers markets and other ways to grow community and prosperity in a time when the dominant culture is dysfunctional.

Jim is smart and hopeful, he shares both qualities in this interview.
