Craft Talk: 

Tony Rubin had the craft talk today. Tony is an Edina guy, father of 2 sons, and a University of Minnesota grad.

Tony took a different approach today to talk about financial markets and related topics. He used trivia and Q&A’s to make several points about today’s financial environment.

He touched on gas prices, social security, market sectors, life insurance, bond markets, market capitalization, corrections/recessions/depressions, automated trading, and how 5 companies influence the market across all sectors.

If you missed this week’s talk, call Tony for a one on one consultation for how you can create and manage wealth in these turbulent times.
