FRAUD FIGHTERS Wednesday, February 15 Con-artists don’t care how hard you worked, they steal billions from people like you every year. Today, people aged 50+ control over 70% of the nation’s wealth and the scammers know it. They’re using the telephone, U.S. mail, email, the internet and they may even show up on your doorstep trying to get your money. For some, aging-related issues like memory loss can lead to vulnerability and new technology has made it easier for criminals to get access to personal information and savings. Understanding the latest trends and tactics in fraud can help us all protect our own savings, as well as people who are more vulnerable.

Between 1929 and 1932, worldwide GDP fell by an estimated 15%. By comparison, worldwide GDP fell by less than 1% from 2008 to 2009 during the Great Recession. The negative effects of the Great Depression lasted until the beginning of World War II. The Dust Bowl was a period of severe dust storms that greatly damaged the ecology and agriculture of the US and Canadian prairies during the 30’s; severe drought and a failure to apply dry land farming methods to prevent wind erosion caused the phenomenon. With insufficient understanding of the ecology of the great plains, farmers had conducted extensive deep plowing of the virgin topsoil. This one two punch will be looked at as it effected Minnesota. Happening at the same time lead to many failed farms. Register by March 10.
