Important events such as inclusion of Chinese stocks on US stock market indexes, using crypto-currencies to make purchases online, emergence of Asian markets on the world scene, a decreasing middle class in the US, increasing wealth among citizens in China and India, massive debt in the US and European economies, and the threat of a debt “Jubilee” are changing the financial world.  How do these changes affect you, the senior investor, whether your “investments” are a CD, savings account, IRA, stocks, bonds or collectibles?   Concepts of diversification, safety, risk, and asset allocation will guide teams of class members as they “invest” $100,000.  Speakers from banks, credit unions, brokerages, financial advisers, coins / collectibles dealers, and CPA businesses will participate.
