“For more than two decades, as income inequality increased and job security decreased, Americans lapped up personal finance columns, books, and television shows.

The annualized gain for the S&P 500 stock index over time is more than 10 percent! You, too, can turn into the millionaire next door. Carpe diem, folks! Seize the financial day!”
Will there even be a next time?
