    to 1 ratio system (payers to receivers)

What SS was intended for

  • 50 years ago 85 of the permanent workforce had a
    pensions plan
  • This number dropped to below 50 in the early
    1990s and is today less than 15
  • What was once set up as a supplement is now being
    used as a retirement plan
  • US Dept. of Health and Human Services Poverty
    Level

    12,000

Back to our question.
  • Answer Far less than 1 for
  • the TN Lottery and nearly 100 for a many
    Growth Stock Mutual Fund ie. ICA
  • So, why is this such a surprise? State Lotteries
    spend significantly more money advertising their
    method of getting rich

Marv Eker Author and financial expert
  • Research has shown again and again most lottery
    winners eventually return to their original
    financial state, regardless of winnings.
  • Self made millionaires that lose it all usually
    have it back in a short period of time.
  • Rich people believe you create your own life,
    poor people believe life is what happens to you
  • Poor people believe wealth must come from
    outside sources Lottery, Govt., Employer Rich
    people believe they and only they must create
    their own wealth
