(New York, NY – June 24, 2021) As the economy reopens investors and retirees face new challenges to their savings and investments. Market bubbles, climate change, a resurgence of inflation and record home prices are just a few of the game changers requiring rethinking and revising investment and saving strategies. Weekly investment and personal finance series Consuelo Mack WealthTrack tackles these subjects in Season 18, premiering nationwide on public television beginning Friday, July 2 at 7:30 p.m. ET (check local listings).
The new season opens with the first of WealthTrack’s rare, two-part interview with Jeremy Grantham, who is known for identifying major market turns and is calling today’s bull market a bubble of “epic proportions,” rivalling the market tops in 1929, 2000 and 2008. Part two, Friday, July 9 at 7:30 p.m. (check local listings), will address Grantham’s early advocacy of climate change investing: how to make money while actively helping the environment. Future episodes include an extended interview with renowned financial historian Niall Ferguson on how the lessons of history can make you a better investor.
“As the economy reopens individuals are faced with financial decisions they haven’t had to make in over a decade,” says Mack. “How do we cope with record high prices and rampant speculation in the financial markets, a resurgence in inflation, higher interest rates, labor and supply shortages? These are all new challenges with lasting ramifications for achieving financial security in retirement. Our mission on WealthTrack is to help people navigate these dramatic changes and build financial security to last a lifetime with advice from ‘Financial Thought Leaders’ and ‘Great Investors.’”
WealthTrack’s 18th season will continue to provide trustworthy, understandable advice from the best minds in the business world on how to build long-term financial security during these changing conditions. Major themes will cover financial market extremes, the effects of unprecedented monetary and fiscal stimulus, socially responsible investing and retirement planning risks.
