Take Charge of Your Financial Stability

 

100 dollar bill 

 

As Bob Dylan sang in the 1960s, "The times they are a-changin'."

 

Those words are true today when it comes to our financial markets and the foundation they rest upon. Major financial institutions and corporations have endured unprecedented changes in recent months.

 

Let's review:
 

Three of the five largest financial institutions on Wall Street are gone: Bear Stearns, Merrill Lynch and Lehman Brothers. Goldman Sachs and Morgan Stanley remain.

 

The two largest mortgage finance lenders, Fannie Mae and Freddie Mac, are now government-owned. (The government offered a bailout plan in exchange for ownership of both firms.)

 

AIG, one of the world's largest insurance companies, is now government-owned. (The government provided an $85 billion loan--and a second loan of more than $30 billion--in exchange for controlling ownership.)

 

Stay tuned. There's more to come.

 

As this real-life economic drama unfolds, your financial stability and success will not come from the government. It will not come from Wall Street or other financial pundits. It will come from you. This is truly the time where knowledge is your best asset. These can be exciting, creative and character-building times if you question, learn, discover and implement your own answers.

 

If you're waiting for someone else to bail you out, think again. But most important, think for yourself.
