Did you know the very-rich have doubled their assets, in one generation? What does this mean to your life, career and equal opportunity? What demographic is being misled the most? You might be surprised to hear that it is educated, professional women! Whether you are a liberal, centrist or conservative, America is about opportunity. Americans believe in the free market, a family home and the value of education. This is the land of great opportunity… except when the wealthiest few use fear and confusion to steal opportunity.

Join Economist Larry Roberts each week for an expose of what is happening to you AND your dollars on Following the Money.
