The markets and your nest egg

-A A +A

Sound fiscal policy will help to stabilize the economy

Whether you’re a Republican or Democrat, or whether you like it or not, what’s going on in the financial markets affects us all.
On Aug. 4, we saw the Dow Jones Industrial average drop more than 500 points, the worst one- day drop since December 2008.
Not even a better-than-anticipated jobs report released the next day allayed fears — the market at one point dropping by as much as 200 points and ending in positive territory only when good news about the Italian economy was announced.
But last week’s overall market loss has the unwanted distinction of being one of only three weeks since World War II that has had a weekly decline of this magnitude.
The markets and the economy are inseparable. And for the retired teacher, civil servant, or blue collar worker who has never owned a share of stock in their lives, they’re in the markets whether they know if or not.
Everyone’s retirement plans, both public and individual, involves participation in the markets, as do university endowments, charitable foundations and a myriad of other entities that seek investments necessary to preserve and grow their funds.
