Dan Solin: Smart Advice For the HuffPost Investor

I am thinking of calling my next book The Smartest Doomsday Prediction You'll Ever Read.

After all, if you want to write a best-selling book, predicting disaster for the U.S. economy seems like a sure bet.

It worked for Howard Ruff. His book, How to Prosper During the Coming Bad Years, racked up huge sales in 1979. Ravi Batra's, The Great Depression of 1990 topped the best seller list in 1987. These are just a few of many examples.

Some of the questions I answer in this week's column reflect similar gloomy sentiments.

Please ask questions for consideration in next week's column by adding a comment to this blog. I appreciate all of your questions and will continue to do my best to answer as many of them as I can.
