Do you have a government registered financial advisor? Does he or she drone on about how the stock market "always goes up"? Or does he/she point to GDP growth figures as proof of an economic recovery?
I remember, when, as a young go-getter I decided I wanted to get involved in the "money business". Stock markets... brokerages... banking... that appeared to be where the "money" was. And, in fact, it was and still is. It won't be for much longer, but that is another story.
