"We're probably looking at 15% (annual) cost of living increase when you look at gas and taxes and food. I don't know how many different ways we can say how ugly it's going to be, but we're absolutely in an unprecedented situation”. These words from our guest this week on Retirement Lifestyle Advocates radio, Mr. Ed Butowsky. Your host, Dennis Tubbergen, discusses the current inflationary pressure brought on by the FED’s easy credit and money printing policies.
In the conversation, Ed talks about only four companies with AAA Bond Ratings, but cannot recall them all. They are: Automatic Data Processing (ADP), Johnson & Johnson (JNJ), Microsoft (MSFT), and Exxon Mobil (XOM).
