Your Barter Efforts Will Easily
Outperform Other Financial Endeavors
If you were able to earn 24.2% per
year (compounded) with your investment portfolio, it would double
every three years. This is obviously very difficult to do with most
for the past 80 years large-company stocks averaged
10.4% and small-company stocks averaged 12.6%, according to research
firm Ibbotson Associates.
However, earning 24% on your barter
transactions isn't particularly difficult, because typically your
built-in barter profits exceed that figure. Now is the time to give
more thought to this segment of your business. Barter is a proven
asset builder … so embrace its use today!

Six Financial Habits Worth Noting
An interesting study in financial behavior, or Behaviorology, shows
that people often repeat their financial behavior in a highly
predictable manner based on the state of the economy. The study,
conducted by Dr.
Dan Geller a behavioral finance scientist and the author of Money
Anxiety found that people repeated their financial
behavior in each of the economic cycles during the last 50 years.
According to Geller, people orient themselves to the state of
the economy by repeating 6 financial-behavior patterns 3 related
to their spending and 3 related to their savings. Each financial
behavior pattern corresponds to the stage in the economic cycle,
i.e. recession, recovery, expansion and decline. Here are the 6
As soon as the economy improves
and starts to expand, people return to their favorite "sport"
bigger and better homes. The Castle Craze financial behavior is
about people's fascination with the status symbol associated with
success. The craze is not just for practical consideration such as
having a place to live or for investment reasons, but also as a
statement of status and achievement. In good economic times, people
will over extend their finances just to win in the bigger, better
and nicer national competition.
People go on
a Durable Diet when the economy is in a recession and they want to
save money by prolong the life of their most expensive possessions —
automobiles and appliances. Typically, people will hold off on
replacing such durable items until the economy improves, or until
the item breaks down and must be replaced. The reason car sales have
increased dramatically in the last couple of years is exactly
because during the recession many people postponed replacing their
cars, as they would normally do.
to Tiny Treats when they can't treat themselves with what they
really want expensive items. When the economy is transitioning,
people are unsure if they should buy a new big-screen TV or put the
money aside in case things don't get better economically. Tiny
Treats are little compensations for giving up on the big things they
are not buying. During the last recession, the only category that
exhibited high growth in sales was personal-care products and
services. These are items such as beauty and body treatments that
are relatively inexpensive but make people feel good.
The Power Play behavioral orientation occurs during the two
transitional economic stages recovery and decline. When the
economy is in transition, people are not sure what to do with their
money spend it or save it for a rainy day. This is a power play
between the urge to spend and the instinct to save. Once the economy
improves and expands, spending wins, and when the economy
transitions to a recession, savings wins in the power play.
The Rate Race begins as soon as the economy starts
expanding, and people are beginning to chase after the highest
interest rate or best return on their money. Since financial
confidence increases during economic expansion, people are willing
to take greater financial risks. Thus, people divert more of their
money from bank savings to the equity market where rates of return
are much higher and so is the risk.
Mattress Money is our most basic behavioral orientation in response
to economic downturn and looming recession. It stems from our
instinct for self-preservation and survival. When people feel
financial danger due to economic downturn, they start hoarding money
by shifting their bank deposits to liquid accounts that can be
immediately withdrawn. Today, $8 of every $10 in bank savings is in
Mattress Money, compared to only $6 prior during the last recession.
According to Dr. Dan Geller, "If you want to know what people
will do with their money when the economy improves, just look at
what they have always done — get in the Rate Race and Castle Craze.
Similarly, when there is a slow-down in the economy, people will go
back to Mattress Money and the Durable Diet."
