What Suzanne Powell could say on
How to Save Money During This Inflationary Period:

Remember the 1980s and high inflation? It was at that time that the world was in a major recession and the US had both tremendous unemployment and inflation. Last year we saw prices increase sharply in the area of energy and goods (especially gas and used cars). Supply chain issues also caused price increases in various goods while consumer demands for these goods remain high. Today, inflation is climbing at anxiety-producing levels. We see the effects everywhere: at the gas pumps, in the stores, with interest rates, etc. However, there are some things we can do to offset these financially unsettling times.

Kids & Money
:

Kids aren’t taught about money in school or often at home.  We don’t know how to appropriately teach good money habits.  Often, this is because we haven’t ever gotten educated ourselves.

Talking Points from Harry Abramhamsen on
How Graduates Can Save Money During this Challenging Times
:

Students are finally graduating and are now turning a new page in their chapter in life. Understanding various money strategies can significantly impact their financial success in the real world. It is equally important to start to save money to build up short-term liquidity. All too often people will throw all the money they have at their debt ignoring building short liquidity. The old saying that “cash is king” really applies here. Start a monthly saving habit and stick to it. Do not worry about a rate of return, because it is a short-term strategy.  This money may be needed for an emergency or to purchase a new home or condo. One of the early traps is “investing” into a risky investment so the money can grow—to potentially lose money to market volatility.

What Harry Abramhamsen can say in an interview on
Financial Planning For the Future:

There are risks that are regularly discussed: trade wars, the next quarter’s returns, budget deficit forecasts, and elections. But the real risks are the things that aren’t being discussed yet—the ones that weren’t predicted: pandemics, September 11, Pearl Harbor, the Lehman Brothers not being able to find a buyer. (Yes, 2008 was so devastating that the name Lehman Brothers, one of the most prestigious financial institutions in the world at the time, was treated like a leper because of their balance sheet.)

What Chris Janeway can say in an interview about
Financial Literacy:

* Financial Literacy Gaps at Home & School. There’s a combination of multiple issues in the marketplace for financial literacy. First and foremost, most adults aren’t taught any form of financial literacy through either their schools or their parents at home when they were younger. As we get older it becomes harder and harder to not only understand and admit our own lack of knowledge, but we also struggle to know where to find reputable information. Along with that, we run into an issue of competing priorities. As we age we’re in the midst of our careers, raising families, and all of the busyness that life can bring. Taking the extra time to increase our financial knowledge often goes to the bottom of the pile.

What Chris Janeway can say in an interview about
Imparting Financial Education to Our Children:

tip #1 Teach the Value of Money 

Kids are much smarter than we give them credit for. They absorb everything around them, most notably, our own activities and interactions. The absolute key to raising a financially successful future adult is making sure kids understand that money is earned. When they see us swipe the credit card and move on or push a button to get cash at the ATM, they don’t connect with what it took to earn the money in the first place. By placing value around the work we do and encouraging children to do the same, our kids start to think about purchases in terms of work. They become more discerning in their decisions and less prone to waste.

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.
