LITTLE ROCK, Ark.--(BUSINESS WIRE)--Conventional wisdom says to max out your 401(k) contribution. Even if you are lucky enough to have a company match, you are gambling your future on a less-than-proven strategy. According to Chase Chandler, author and founder of EconFreedom.tv, “given the current economic and political environment, the 401(k) is not the best use of resources for most individuals.”
Rather, Chandler suggests you find a way to remove yourself from reliance on conventional investing and build your own safety net. You can read about it in Chandler’s new book, The Wealthy Family (Tate Publishing), due out in early 2014 or visit EconFreedom.tv to view/listen to Chandler’s daily show. Prepare to have your preconceived notion of retirement and mainstream economics turned on its ear. Chandler readily admits this is a tough concept to follow, and that it flies in the face of conventional wisdom … to which he retorts, “If two of us think alike on everything, one of us is unnecessary. Not knowing the other side of the story is a much bigger retirement gamble.”
