I Said “Release”

It’s sometimes not just what you say but how you say it.

And of course the giver and receiver of the message must be ready for action to occur.

In the movie “The Father of the Bride,” the bride’s father played by Steve Martin is visiting the house of the wealthy soon-to-be in-laws.

He is lured into snooping through the man’s home office when their Doberman pinscher catches him in the act and stares him down.

Steve Martin remembers the owner saying a word that calmed the dog and sent him away.

In the panic and stress of the moment, Martin couldn’t remember the word… he said whatever words came to his mind like “relent” before he came up with the word, “release.”

But it was too late as the dog was already in attack mode.

We’ve been given the “release” from Governor Kemp to get back to work and some semblance of normal life.

However, many will not hear the word “release” but some version of “relent” as they remain hunkered down.

The same may be true for the economy and market for some time as well.

There is no right answer here as everyone really needs to progress back into normal life or a new-normal life at their own pace and comfort level.

We will be discussing some views on what this might look like for the economy and market on our live call today and Thursday.

These kinds of realism and hope and good news and clear insights are what we share in our live webinar broadcast, Retirement Perspective in Confusing Times.
