Rigged Money: Beating Wall Street at Its Own Game explains in detail how the financial industry has systematically worked to convince the public that investing across different asset classes is the only way to protect wealth. At one point this was probably sage advice, but today it's an outdated rule more likely to bring disaster than success. Since asset classes—from small caps and international stocks to gold and bonds—now overlap when it comes to risk and volatility parameters, the diversification effect is gone, and with it, any reason for spreading your money around. It's this change in the financial landscape, and the rules of the game, that Wall Street doesn't want you to know about, and that this book discusses.
