This week on Your Money

The economic storm Ali has been warning you about is getting closer to our shores, and the dispute over taxation in this country is making things worse.

The president's proposal to extend the Bush tax cuts only for families earning less than $250,000 is being called a job killer by Mitt Romney and Republicans. They say it is squeezing small businesses, the engine of job creation in this country. Ali takes a deep-dive into the reality of small business job and wealth creation to expose the myths and truths behind the battle over the Bush-era tax cuts.

Fareed Zakaria joins the program, along with Norm Ornstein, Will Cain, Christine Romans, and Kevin Hassett of the Romney campaign.

Your Money with Ali Velshi airs Saturday at 1pm ET and Sunday at 3pm ET on CNN

Smart investments for a low-return environment

Like Congress, Wall Street has a history of not acting until it's too late. You may not have that luxury. Just remember what happened in 2008 when you looked up and half your 401(k) was wiped out in a matter of weeks.

The American consumer is feeling the fear and when consumers stop spending, businesses stop hiring.
Add to that a slowdown in emerging economic giants like China and India, and even the biggest global companies like McDonalds and Nike start taking it on the chin.

Consumer cyclical stocks are the first to react to the shifting economic winds, and that's where Zephyr Management's managing director Jim Awad says you should put your money if you think the economy will improve.
