Mission Shaped Early
As a young man, Ted Bauman had a string of entry-level jobs in food service. Reflecting on this, Bauman said, “I learned early to pay attention to the welfare of the people at the bottom.” From this experience, his life’s mission was shaped: Address income disparity by putting financial management tools and information in a format readily accessible to those without a business background. Now as Editorial Director of Banyan Hill Publishing, Bauman is accomplishing his mission. Refer to this article for additional information.
Teaching the Power of Investing
Born in Washington, D.C. and raised in Maryland, Bauman immigrated to South Africa and earned post-graduate degrees in Economics and History. As an executive with non-profits in South Africa, he helped to found Slum Dwellers, now known as Slum Dwellers International. Slum Dwellers works with communities to find natural leaders and teach these natural leaders how to form co-operative investing groups to better their communities. With this approach, communities, for example, are able to secure water supplies or expand housing options. Today Slum Dwellers International operates in 34 countries and impacts the lives of countless residents of low income communities world-wide.
Banyan Hill Publishing
Bauman, now a resident of Atlanta, carries on his work as the Editorial Director for Banyan Hill Publishing. In this position, he writes the weekly Bauman Letter as well as Plan B Club and the Alpha Street Alert. Passionate about his point of view that income inequality is dangerous to the economy, Bauman’s newsletters urge readers to protect their money and learn how to manage it. For example, he urges readers to use Stock Market Bug software. With this software consumers can get real-time stock market information reducing their reliance on brokers. Another recent article discussed the pros and cons of bit-coins.
Emerging Foreign Markets
In his most recent posts, Bauman, after analyzing 2017 stock market performance, suggests that foreign emerging markets will post significant gains in 2018. Bauman, along with other experts, believes that foreign dominated emerging markets will deliver more than 13% earnings growth this coming year.
Ted Bauman spends his days combing the internet, evaluating what he is reading, and then sending it back out to his readership in an accessible format.
