How to Profit from Disrupted Government Plans
Your taxes about to go way up. And not because of the reason you may be thinking…
Not because of the Bush tax cuts expiring. And not because of who will sit in the White House come November 6th.
Luckily, there’s a solution – one that’s not only a “fun” way to invest, but could be extremely lucrative, too. First, however, you need to understand the problem.
On Friday, I gave you some investment ideas on how to profit from the “Graying of America”.
Specifically, I talked about how 10,000 baby boomers will turn 65 every day for the next 18 years
This has led to an elderly population larger than any other time in U.S. history.
That might seem unbelievable, but you don’t have to take my word for it…
According to Money.USnews.com:
The 65-and-older population jumped 15.1 percent between 2000 and 2010, compared with a 9.7 percent increase for the total U.S. population. People age 65 and older now make up 13 percent of the total population, compared with 12.4 percent in 2000 and 4.1 percent in 1900.
Not only is the increase in the number of elderly unprecedented, but the number of years people are living is longer than ever before.
Take a look at the chart down below to see what I mean:

Why are people living longer?
The main reason is because of the radical improvements in medical technology.
Our lead tech researcher, Patrick Cox, has identified many companies that are on the brink of radically improving their lifespans… into the centurion status.
Here’s what that means for your taxes…
The government’s actuarial tables are based on assumptions of current lifespans.
From those premises, they determine how much money to spend on programs like Medicare and Social Security. As you know, the government gets that money to spend on those expensive programs from you, the taxpayer.
But those actuarial tables don’t factor in new biotechnologies that often derive from “accidental” discoveries. The government debt is assumed on only current lifespans.
If those lifespans go up, the debt goes parabolic. And spending on those programs shoots through the roof.
Frankly, more money to spend on these programs simply doesn’t exist… unless they take more from you and me.
So how do you prepare?
Invest alongside what’s making these lifespans go up: the emerging technologies in biotech, regenerative medicine, and nanotechnology.
If you don’t have at least 5-10% of your portfolio dedicated to “disruptive” medical companies, now’s the time to do so.
Even if you “hit it big” on just one of them, it may not just protect you from rising taxes… but it could make you a fortune in the process… and make you live longer.
