When someone says "401k loan" every expert's knee-jerk reaction is, "Bad idea." But is it? On today's roundtable (with featured guest J. David Stein from the Money For The Rest of Us podcast), we debate 401k loans. The math is better than you might think in favor of borrowing "from yourself."

Shannon McLay (Train Your Way To Financial Fitness) is back in the guest host chair, and we tackle Cyber Money shopping, people lying about being a millionaire AND index "tilting." We even have time to discuss the hot new film Birdman at the end of the show!
