50 Shades of Politics

Posted in: Fellowship

Marvin Mcintyre of Morgan Stanley Smith Barney in Washington, DC noted that "politics and economics are intertwined."  Mr. Mcintyre is author of "Insiders" a non-fiction book about hedge funds and insider trading.  He has a new book coming out in two weeks that is co-authored by David Baldacci, acclaimed author of 17 novels including "Absolute Power."

Mr. Mcintyre stated that when it comes to government, the policies are reactive and not proactive, as seen in the mortgage crisis.  As a financial planner, he advises that individuals should be aware of their long term financial decisions.  He suggests paying taxes on Roth IRA's now, rather than when it is withdrawn.  He also advises the careful examination of long term health care options.
