Brett Arends writes R.O.I., or Return On Investment, daily for the Online Wall Street Journal, dissecting where personal finance meets current affairs, and how the latest news can make you money."  A lot of the time, that comes from going against the herd.”

Brett has spent his life rifling through department store bargain bins in London, Boston and New York, and that's pretty much the same way he views markets. A good stock-market panic yields the cheapest deals. And there's only one thing better: a scandal. That's when you get a fire sale. R.O.I. will be looking for bargains anywhere, and for opportunities on the spending side as well.

It isn't really true that $1,000 saved is just $1,000 earned. If you're in the top income-tax bracket, it's $1,500 earned. And salted away for 30 years in a tax-deferred account, $1,000 saved is nearly $9,000 towards your retirement. That's some return.

He is the author of a biography of Republican presidential nominee Mitt Romney, The Romney Files, a book about personal finance, Storm Proof Your Money, and a book about sports gambling, Spread Betting: A Football Fan's Guide. He writes a weekly column for Smart Money
