AARP Finance - Well Black Friday seemed to start of the sales season with a bang, however many people including AARP members were sticking to using lists of items they were searching for rather than impulse buying.
The stock markets around the world are on an upward trend and its a question on how long the trend will continue.
Many AARP member have seen 35% falls in the value of their 401(k) plans but it will be some time before these losses are made up. If your plans are showing heavier losses than this then you need to consider alternative investment strategies to bring in more money.
During times of recession many AARP members look for alternative ways to bring in more money, such as starting a home business or taking on part time jobs, however with increasing job loses the home business idea has a better chance of success.
