The media is rife with dire predictions about the economy. We should not overlook that when one segment of society is under duress, another segment of the culture is thriving. Duality is everywhere.
It is also important to note that not all investments involve money. If you have invested yourself for years within a belief system, how likely are you examine that system with an open mind? If you, for example, feel you have somehow earned a one-way ticket to heaven, there is little that would inspire you to reflect on that conclusion. Unless, of course, you have the mindfulness and courage to adopt a new standard from wherever and whenever it comes.
This is the point of enlightenment in the here and now, not the hereafter.
