Maureen Cavanaugh : It used to be, if you had a few extra dollars, you were foolish not to invest in the stock market. If you had more than a few dollars, investing in growth markets or real estate was the way to go.
Then came last year with the mortgage meltdown, and the Wall Street collapse and suddenly the old ways of thinking about saving and investing your money, if you have any left, aren't working anymore.
With job insecurities, and volatile markets, it's harder than ever to make ends meet while still planning for the future.
