Ben Carlson is the Director of Institutional Asset Management at Ritholtz Wealth Management. There, he helps to create detailed investment plans and manage portfolios for institutions and individuals to help them achieve their goals. Ben is also the author of the new book “Don’t Fall For It: A Short History of Financial Scams” which we’ll discuss. And on top of that, he has his own investing podcast called Animal Spirits, and he writes all about investing over at his site “A Wealth of Common Sense” – not only are we excited to talk about scams with Ben, but also how we as individuals should approach saving and investing for retirement.
We recommend that you check out Ben’s site A Wealth of Common Sense. He does a great job explaining why individuals who have only recently begun investing are actually at an advantage during a recession.
