The challenges faced by first responders in the medical, rescue, police, and military have never been greater. Each day that you report for duty, your personal well-being is placed on the line as you step up to fulfill your duty and help people. It is unfortunate that the contributions of first responders are very rarely recognized for the priceless gift that they really are.

In addition to the physical dangers faced on the job by first responders, there is a hidden danger that may impact the financial lives of many first responders whom society depends upon for its very well-being. This hidden danger is the underfunded pension and retirement plans for police, fire, medical and military professionals. Federal, state and local governments all across the country and around the world are experiencing budget difficulties that make it difficult to finance pensions at a level that is sufficient for retirees to fully support their standard of living. This phenomenon may leave many first responders facing retirement years under extreme pressure from financial difficulty.

At Heroic Investing, we are dedicated to showing first responders a different way to build their financial future. The future is uncertain but first responders have extensive knowledge of how things can change in an instant. The hero’s of society have always been the people who protect our safety and respond to emergencies. You have dedicated your career to making sacrifices for the public good. These sacrifices should be rewarded with a financially secure future and a good retirement lifestyle. This is the reason why pensions were created in the first place and our sincere hope is that our heros have a secure and abundant future.

    261: How to Get the Most Out of Your Homeowners Insurance Claim | Galen Hair, Attorney

    Jason Hartman invites attorney Galen Hair to the Creating Wealth Show today to discuss how to make sure you are getting the most out of your insurance claim. How do you know if you should even hire an attorney to assist with your claim? A study from the Insurance Research Council revealed that on average, people who hire attorneys are likely to see a settlement three and a half times higher than people who don't hire attorneys.
    What are some of the things your homeowner’s insurance policy might cover that you don't even know about and would never think to make a claim for? What should owner occupant homeowners and rental property investors know? What other additional coverage should you consider adding on to your policy that is not included, but would be available for a small fee?

    260: AMERICAN KLEPTOCRACY Greatest Money Laundering Scheme in History with Casey Michel

    260: AMERICAN KLEPTOCRACY Greatest Money Laundering Scheme in History with Casey Michel

    Jason Hartman invites Casey Michel, author and investigative journalist, to speak about his new book which uncovers how the US has created the greatest money laundering scheme in history.
    South Dakota has pioneered an entire industry of what they call anonymous trusts. South Dakota has taken this to a magnitude we've never seen by creating perpetual anonymity for these trusts. The information of those in the trust will never be shared with governments, with other jurisdictions, tax authorities, investigators, which is why we've seen both Americans and non Americans flocking to South Dakota. $900 billion is the top line estimate in South Dakota, but it's still a question of how many total assets are actually there, who those assets are connected to and what those assets are actually doing after they pass through all the anonymity that the state of South Dakota freely offers.
    Casey Michel’s book also talks about illicit foreign money purchasing steel mills, factories and manufacturing plants in places like Cleveland, Ohio, the Rust Belt and the Midwest. They're not revitalizing local communities and bringing jobs back, but rather using those assets to hold and hide funds, using them as part of a broader transnational money laundering scheme. And so what ends up happening is that not only do the jobs never come back, the folks who have the remaining jobs are just laid off, the factories begin falling apart and it’s clear they are never going to come back. These local communities in places such as West Virginia, Kentucky, Texas and Illinois are seeing their economic crown jewels go to complete rot because of this system of kleptocracy.
    Towards the end of the broader Cold War period, one could see a sudden surge in the creation of financial secrecy pools and broader economic structuring that incentivized the outflow of illicit suspect wealth from post communist states. These states are linked directly to rising oligarchies and dictatorships that are smothering local populations, looting national treasuries, and making sure bridges, roads, hospitals and schools are never built. And then beyond that, there is no broader free market economy that actually develops in those countries. http://www.caseymichel.com/
