Preparing for Retirement
:

 1. Have a game plan in place. Where do you want to live? Do you want to move and downsize? Do you have grandchildren you want to be close to?

What Chris Janeway can say in an interview about
Mistakes People Make With Money During the Holiday Season:

 1. LACK OF A BUDGET. It sounds so simple but going into the holiday season with a plan is half of the battle. It’s so easy to get caught up in the gift shopping, parties, etc., that we don’t realize how much these add up. I’m guilty of it myself. It’s been more than one year that I think my wife’s stocking stuffers ended up costing more than her gift because I got swept up in wanting to make things special. You need to have a budget for the season and for each gift. The other half of the battle is actually sticking to the budget. Whether it’s guilt or competition, we often lose discipline and overspend, even when we HAD a plan. Be firm with your plan. If you go over, you’re stealing from some other goal in your or your family’s life.

What Harry Abramhamsen can say in an interview on
The Banking System and How It Affects Your Bottom Line:

People see the Great Recession through the lens of what they themselves experienced and the most popular stories on the news ticker—with a general idea of what the bailout meant, but most people do not know how close America was to falling into another depression. And most people do not realize that the thing that is backing up this bailout is their taxpayer dollars. When the government throws money at a problem, more taxes will be required to make up for it, and inflation goes through the roof. So maybe individuals weren’t as immediately impacted in 2008 as they would have been in the 1930s, but the impact of tax increases and inflation, and speculation, will wreak havoc in their lives in the long term. The banking system is an immense tide that is being held back by a series of weak barriers and bailouts. Your bank is a watery grave, not a trusted institution.
