Jeff Yastine originally went to school at the University of Florida where he majored in journalism. Upon graduation, he began to work as a television reporter and in 1993 joined the PBS publication The Nightly Business Report. Whenever he joined the program, it was the countries most watched financial broadcast and was seen by more than 1 million individuals on a nightly basis. It was through his work with The Nightly Business Report that he first came into contact with some of the world’s leading finance and business members. He was able to work directly with individuals such as Warren Buffett, Steve Forbes, Michael Dell, and Bill Gross.
Jeff Yastine has seen all sides of the American economy first beginning work during the market crash of 1987. It was the response to this market crash that first spurred his interest in the mechanics of the American economy and stock market. He quickly began to invest in stocks on his own and learned through a combination of trial and error as well as through education from some of the world’s leading financial experts.
He has taken this and created a personal philosophy that involves investing in stable profit yielding companies that are under the radar to the typical investor. It is with this philosophy that he creates his publication Total Wealth Insider. Most recently he has published about the growing burden of debt on most Americans. Today most Americans have a record amount of debt including balances owed on credit cards, car loans, student loans, and even mortgages. Currently, credit card debt owed by Americans is greater than $1 trillion. In the year 2017 alone an additional $92 billion was added to America’s credit card debt with 67 billion of that 92 billion added during the fourth quarter alone. As a result, there are significant investment opportunities in debt collection companies, although this does mean that the current growth in the American stock market is more than likely unsustainable.
