Safely Prosperous or Really Rich. Choosing Your Personal Financial Heaven

Praise for SAFELY PROSPEROUS or REALLY RICH?«Howard's brilliant concept that the roads to Prosperity and Riches are very different is very liberating. In most financial books, the author would never do what Howard has done-recount with unflinching honesty the big financial mistakes he and his subscribers have made over the years so readers can avoid the same stumbling blocks and pitfalls. Only a very secure man would have the guts to do that.» -Robert Allen author of Multiple Streams of Income and Nothing Down «Howard Ruff is back, offering a wealth of powerful new financial advice for America's middle class. In his new manual, Safely Prosperous or Really Rich?, he challenges you to choose between two roads. The older I get, the more I favor'Safely Prosperous,'but you make the call. I also love Howard's old-fashioned moral perspectives on money.» -Mark Skousen editor of Forecasts and Strategies «Safely Prosperous or Really Rich? is destined to be one of the most influential books of the early twenty-first century, just as his mega bestseller, How to Prosper During the Coming Bad Years, changed millions of lives in the late'70s. Welcome back, Howard.» -John Mauldin author of Bull's Eye Investing

Robert G. Allen

Robert Gray Allen (August 24, 1902–August 19, 1963) was an American businessman and a Democratic member of the U.S. House of Representatives from Pennsylvania.

Allen was born in Winchester, Massachusetts. He moved to Minneapolis, Minnesota, in 1906. He was graduated from Phillips Academy at Andover, Massachusetts, in 1922 and later attended Harvard University in Cambridge, Massachusetts. He moved to Greensburg, Pennsylvania in 1929 and was a salesman and sales manager for a valve and fittings manufacturing business until 1937. He was district administrator of the Works Progress Administration in 1935 and 1936.

Allen was elected as a Democrat to the Seventy-fifth and Seventy-sixth Congresses. He was not a candidate for renomination in 1940. He became president of the Duff-Norton Manufacturing Company in Pittsburgh, from 1940 to 1943. He was commissioned a major in the Ordnance Corps of the United States Army in July 1942 and was promoted to lieutenant colonel in February 1943. He served until his discharge in January 1945.

After his time in Congress and the Army, he served in a variety of business positions:
*Baldwin Locomotive Works (Sales manager) from 1945 to 1946
*Fisher Plastics Corporation (Vice President) in Boston, Massachusetts from 1946 to 1947
*Great Lakes Carbon Corporation (Vice President) from 1947 to 1954
*Pesco Products (President), a division of Borg-Warner Corporation, from 1954 - 1957
*Bucyrus-Erie Company (Vice President in 1957 - 1958, and president in 1958)
*Bucyrus-Erie Co. of Canada, Ltd. (chairman of the board and president)
*Ruston-Bucyrus, Ltd., Lincoln, England (chairman of the board)
*Director of the First Wisconsin National Bank of Milwaukee, Wisconsin

He retired from business activities in 1962 and moved from Milwaukee, to Keene, Virginia, where he died.

In 1948, Allen's daughter, Katharine "Kathy" Allen, married Warren A. Morton (1924-2002), an oilman in Casper who later served as Speaker of the Wyoming House of Representatives from 1979-1980 and was the unsuccessful Republican gubernatorial nominee in 1982. Katharine Morton recalls that though her her father had been a New Deal supporter, he opposed U.S. President Franklin D. Roosevelt's Judiciary Reorganization Bill of 1937 and also ran afoul of United Mine Workers labor figure John L. Lewis.
