What Are the Chances We Have a Market Crash, and How Do I Protect Myself?
This is a time of year when many people give thanks for what they have. On this episode of Retirement Answer Man, I explore the definition of thankfulness and gratitude with our Rock Retirement Club retirement coach, BW. He even brings us 5 tips that can help us to cultivate gratitude on a regular basis. Tanya Nichols joins me again to help answer listener questions. You’ll learn what you can do if you are worried about a market crash, what to do if you think you are too old for long-term care insurance, and we’ll discuss Roth conversions from a 403B. Press play now to join me to hear the answers to listener questions and more. What are you thankful for? The definitions of thankfulness and gratitude are very similar. Thankfulness is the consciousness of benefit received from others. Gratitude is a thankful appreciation for what an individual receives both tangible and intangible. One way to combat worry is to create a habit of thankfulness. I have done this personally and it has changed my life. Practicing gratitude contributes to greater happiness and it allows us to focus on what we have rather than what we lack. Listen in to hear what I am grateful for this year. 5 tips to help cultivate gratitude on a regular basis Cultivating a gratitude practice can seem like a good idea but it often falls by the wayside after a few days or weeks. The beauty of practicing gratitude is that it shifts your mindset. You can use these 5 tips to help you become more thankful by creating your own practice of gratitude each day. * Write and send a thank you note to someone who has had an impact on your life each month. * Get in the habit of saying thank you to at least one person each day. * Keep a gratitude journal. You get bonus points if you try and come up with different things to be thankful for each day. * Pray. If you are religious, praying can help you cultivate gratitude. * Meditate. Instead of focusing on your inner self, try focusing on gratitude in the moment. Does sequence of return risk keep you up at night? The world around us seems so unstable right now. Many people worry that we could be at the start of the next big crash. What if we are at the beginning of several years of zero returns? Sequence of return risk is one of the biggest worries of those on the cusp of retirement. Although people worry about sequence of return risk, if you look back at history and study bear markets, youĺl see that even within those years there were good years and bad years. It’s also good to remember that your portfolio won’t directly reflect the S&P 500, we simply use it as a planning tool. How to balance market risk against inflation risk Why do we take market risk when we are worried about sequence of returns? Inflation! Inflation risk is just as big, but it creeps up slowly over time. You have to balance the risk of inflation with market risk. You can take market risk. You just have to know how much you are comfortable with. The first thing you need to do is understand the minimum effective dose of investment risk you need in order to create the life you want. Next, you’ll want to time segment your money by building your cash flow model early in retirement. Plan for statistically probable outcomes and then test for outliers. Listen in to hear the details of how you can protect yourself from both inflation risk and market risk.

How physicians can find jobs in the pharmaceutical and biotechnology industries
"I’m now CMO at a private biotech company focused on developing therapies for patients with rare endocrine diseases. We are conducting a trial in the U.S., Europe, and Israel. I mention this to raise the possibility of travel in pharma/biotech roles. In most companies, roles are both 'functional' (i.e., clinical development, medical affairs, marketing) and geographic (i.e., global, regional). I’ve had both global roles, being responsible for the entire world strategy for a therapy, and U.S. specific roles where I’ve focused on the U.S. only. Some roles, like medical science liaison, are smaller areas of focus (state or several states). I enjoy travel and have been able to do so extensively; however, there are roles where travel is limited. One of the great things about physician roles – there is a broad range of careers that can be had, and it’s likely there is one to fit your life needs! There is a need for physicians in pharma/biotech, and physicians need to more exposure to this career path. I encourage doctors to network; connect with people to learn and make your name known. My final piece of advice is to understand how all of your past experiences, whether leadership, management, or research translate into supporting your resume for a role in pharma/biotech; do not undersell your experience!" Nerissa Kreher is a pediatric endocrinologist and founder, The IndustryMDCoach. She shares her story and discusses her KevinMD article, "How physicians can find jobs in the pharmaceutical and biotechnology industries."

My Post-Mortem on the Presidential Election
At the time of recording this podcast the results haven’t been certified but it looks like Joe Biden will be the next US president. There are a couple of different outcomes that you need to pay attention to. The first involves him not controlling the Senate. In order to win the Senate Democrats would have to win two seats in a runoff election on Jan 5 but pundits are saying that result is unlikely. If Republicans control the Senate there will be a lot of obstruction for Joe Biden’s agenda. Everything that Joe Biden campaigned on is going to be effectively neutralized and he will probably have to postpone any changes until the midterms two years from now. This means you can expect two years of relative status quo, but if the Democrats do win those Senate seats in the midterm elections or want to press his program, he will likely try to make the most of the opportunity and push through his agenda more aggressively. If you make more than $400,000 per year, you are essentially a marked man or woman. For example, if you live in California you will have to pay a 13.3% State tax, a 39.6% Federal tax, an additional 14% additional Social Security tax for every dollar over the $400,000, and finally a 3.8% for an Obamacare surcharge. This scenario results in 1970s style tax rates where you would be paying 70.7% in taxes. You will also have fewer ways to mitigate that tax and be unable to deduct 401(k) contributions on the margin as well. Joe Biden has proposed considerable changes to the way 401(k) deductions are done so we are going to start to see deductions phasing out for people in the higher income levels. Joe Biden wants to be able to tax you at high marginal tax rates and doesn’t want to give you a lot of recourse in terms of mitigating that tax. If you have significant income, your long term capital gains could become short term gains. If Joe Biden wins the Senate he will have two years to put this into law but in the process will likely upset a lot of people and potentially lose the Senate after the midterms, however this means that for the first two years you better duck and cover if you make $400,000 a year or more. If you make less than $400,000 a year, a Joe Biden presidency is relatively good news for you. Joe Biden plans on letting the tax cuts expire for the people that make $400,000 or more but for those who make less, he plans on making the tax cuts permanent. This could make contribution to your 401(k) a bit more complicated and for those above the $400,000 threshold they will probably want to consider some other options. In terms of the Power of Zero paradigm, it is largely good news if you believe that Joe Biden will make the tax cuts permanent for those who make less than $400,000 per year. We can’t afford to keep tax rates this low and have actually gone beyond the point of no return. We would have to tax 103% for every dollar made over $400,000 just to prevent the deficit from growing. This doesn’t include actually paying off the debt. Unless you believe in Modern Monetary Theory there doesn’t seem to be any other way to solve our problems other than ultimately raising taxes on the middle class. Joe Biden is kicking the can down the road and it’s going to compound our problems over time, but if you’re looking to take advantage of this opportunity before we come face to face with reality, this is a great opportunity to shift money to the tax-free bucket. If Joe Biden wins over the Senate there’s going to be a lot of shock and awe in the first two years of his administration as they push through a number of pieces of legislation that will disproportionately impact people who make more than $400,000 a year. If he doesn’t win the Senate he will bide his time until the midterms to gain the seats he needs to implement this agenda.
