Stacking Benjamins: Your Gateway to Money and Personal Finance


Aug 4, 2017

What are the best ways to invest? In a recent piece, Ramit Sethi (I Will Teach You To Be Rich) detailed what he thinks are the four best starting points for people in their 20's. Are they the best? We're excited that Investment News' 40 Under 40 honoree Eric Roberge joins Paula Pant from Afford Anything and Joe to tackle all four of Ramit's strategies.

Of course, that isn't all. Next we discuss the active vs. passive investment debate. Which is better? A recent piece says that this particular debate isn't the right one to have. Instead, we should talk about what's right for the investor, based on their beliefs and their needs. Do you agree? Does our roundtable agree? You'll find out today!

We finish off our discussion with a rousing debate about another crazy Marketwatch.com Moneyologist question. Today's question? If your boss asks you to take a roommate, should you charge the person rent? ...that's not all of the question, but we get some GREAT answers from our roundtable participants.

In our Friday FinTech segment, JJ Ramberg from Gumdrop joins us. Are you back to school shopping? Searching for great deals? Hoping to also help some charitable causes? We'll show you how Gumdrop works on all of those fronts today!
