"…for investors with money on the line, it is merely frightening. Consider the setup. It is clear that if it were allowed to happen, the "fiscal cliff"—the large tax increases and spending cuts starting in January—would send the economy into a recession.": Justin Lahart in the Wall Street Journal 11/8/2012
"The two-day slump came in the wake of Obama's re-election to a second term as investors turned their focus back to Europe's problems and the so-called fiscal cliff, a package of tax increases and government spending cuts in the U.S. that will occur unless Congress acts by Jan. 1. Investors see it as a serious threat to the economic recovery.": Stever Rothwell, AP Business Writer, published in the San Francisco Chronicle 11/8/2012
"Some industry sectors, like finance and managed care, were particularly hard hit on Wednesday amid worries they would be hurt by tougher regulations and other adverse policies in Mr. Obama’s second term. Some also pointed to concerns that taxes on dividends and capital gains were likely to increase, making stocks less attractive.": Floyd Norris & Nelson D. Schwartz published in the NY Times 11/7/2012
Pretty scary stuff huh? When these noted financial writers in some of the world's leading newspapers see such dire straights ahead. Now I am no political pundit nor am I a financial wizard. I'm just a retired cop. But it doesn't take a Warren Buffett to see the writing on the wall.
Many of the hard-working middle and upper middle class have had the forethought to see the decline in Social Security. They decided that they were not going to rely on the government to provide them with a comfortable retirement. They were going to take matters into their own hands. They opened IRAs, KEOGHs, 401Ks. They religiously funded them fully every year.
Where many of them made their mistake however, was they relied on fund managers, investment advisors, tipsters to advise them on how and where to invest their retirement funds. Stocks, bonds, mutual funds.
Where is your nest egg invested? How much of a hit did you take on this last stock market dip? Where do you see it in the next year, 5 years, 10 years? And that's not even taking into account the declines that most Americans have seen in their portfolios over the last couple of years.
But what options do you have? How can you actually see an increase in your retirement portfolio every year? Where can you put your retirement funds to reap the most benefits?
As I said, I'm just a retired cop. Let's see what some of those same major news outlets have to say:
"Mexico’s Riviera Maya: hottest of the hot spots for recent tourism and development.” USA Today
"No Stopping the Mexican Investment Boom" Bloomberg Businessweek
"Mexico: A second gold rush is under way" Fox News
"Mexico: One of the best countries for business" Forbes
"Now is the moment to invest in Mexico says Carlos Slim" Forbes.com
"Over the last 6 years, Cancun, and the Riviera Maya have attracted the greatest amount of foreign capital." Travel Daily News
"Mexico is a top real estate investment choice for those looking for double digit return potentials." Jim Cramer, Mad Money, CNBC
One of "The Best Foreign Retirement Havens of 2011." Forbes.com
"Riviera Maya: Ideal Place for Second Homes." USA Today
"Mexico Voted World's Top Retirement Haven." International Living
"Real Estate cannot be lost or stolen, nor can it be taken away. Purchased with common sense, paid for in full, and managed with reasonable care, it's the safest investment in the world." Franklin D. Roosevelt
And it's easier than you think.
So now, ask yourself these questions:
1- Will I be able to retire comfortably staying where I'm invested now?
2- Where can I invest my retirement funds to get the highest consistent return?
Acquiring Mexico real estate for your retirement portfolio… it just makes sense!
