My philosophy is that it is hard, but not impossible, to beat the market, and that it is easy, and imperative, to save on taxes and money management costs. I graduated from Harvard in 1973 with a degree in linguistics and applied math. I have been a journalist for 40 years, and was editor of Forbes magazine from 1999 to 2010. Tax law is a frequent subject in my articles. I have been an Enrolled Agent since 1979.
