He took managerial roles in housing projects in the nonprofit sector. His writings have been published in respectable journals.

Lately, Ted Bauman has been advising his readers to adopt a more cautious stance in regard to the US Stock market. Mr. Bauman has always recommended that individuals start off investing in a defensive manner before they get aggressive. Most pundits on financial outlets talk about the current bull market going on indefinitely, but there are a few respectable individuals on Wall Street who are starting to get nervous about the stock market. The bull market is the longest in history and Mr. Bauman feels that there are factors that could start to push stock prices lower. He says that if the Federal Reserve keeps pushing interest rates, investors seeking safer yield will exit the stock market. If economic data keeps showing up positive, the Federal Reserve will likely remain on their current course of action. Ted Bauman believes that if interest rates hit four percent, the bull market will end. He also pointed out that the current trade war could speed the process of ending the bull market in equities.
Ted Bauman advises investors to brace for a down market if it comes but he urges investors not to try to time the market. Sometimes, it could take up to a year for a bear market to be officially acknowledged. If the stock market does crash, equities may bounce back in a similar matter to 1987. Investors who panicked lost money and those that remained calm made a ten percent rate of return by the end of the year. Mr. Bauman believes that investors should make sure they have bonds in their financial portfolio because they can help an investor survive a bear market in stocks.

Ted Bauman was asked in a recent interview if he would do anything differently if he could start his life over. In reply, he commented that the most important thing he would do differently is to become much better with managing his time when he was a younger man. Instead, he has had to learn the hard way how to do so, and he also admitted that he would have been more productive over the course of his life. Bauman has also talked about how he would work harder to understand the detailed and more complicated sides of economics; if only to be able to engage people who look at the world in this way.
