Most retirement account and other long term investors continue to follow the same financial strategies they’ve been following for decades, believing that the “science” of modern finance will reliably build wealth and security for them.
Meanwhile, for some years now and as a matter of openly stated policy, the Federal Reserve, European Central Bank and Bank of Japan, as well as the central banks of other nations have sought to create what are known as “negative real rates of return”.
What needs to be understood is that there are four direct conflicts of interest between current government policies and the most widely followed retirement investment strategies. Indeed, the purpose of massive monetary interventions around the world is to override the usual market forces, in order to meet governmental goals.
