NEW YORK, July 1, 2022 /PRNewswire/ -- The world is changing. Decades of declining interest rates, moderating inflation and historically stable geopolitical and financial relationships are being reversed. Interest rates are rising, prices are increasing, global trade is fracturing amid geopolitical unrest. The financial impact of this heightened market volatility on individuals and businesses is profound. Consuelo Mack WealthTrack tackles these challenges with help from a roster of best-in-class guests in Season 19, premiering nationwide on public television beginning Friday, July 1 (check local listings).

The season opens with an interview with influential and prescient economist and strategist David Rosenberg who is warning of imminent recession and an extended bear market. He will provide viewers with strategies to weather the turbulence. Future episodes include an interview with top global value investor Sarah Ketterer about her assessment of the global financial outlook and what she calls "outstanding" investment opportunities being created by declining markets; and an interview with award-winning financial planner Mark Cortazzo who will share his advice to clients on adjusting retirement plans to avoid lasting damage.

"Most individuals have never experienced the challenges of rising inflation and interest rates," says Mack. "These conditions require a different approach to investing and retirement planning. We have lined up a stellar stable of experts to help viewers navigate through this challenging period and continue to build their financial security."
