Finding investment income is not getting any easier.  The Federal Reserve's most recent decision to keep short term interest rates at record lows means there is no relief yet.  Many professional and individual investors have turned their attention to dividend paying stocks for current income and future growth. This week’s guest is among them, but with a twist. He is looking overseas, where dividend yields are generally higher and dividend paying cultures are stronger.  Thornburg Investment Management’s Chief Investment Officer and Portfolio Manager Brian McMahon discusses how he finds growing sources of income around the world in his Thornburg Investment Income Builder Fund.
