ACCORDING to recent Fed meeting minutes, the tapering policy that’s held rates low may be ending soon. Does that mean you should refinance any high rate debt you have right now? Is it too late?
Ryan Michler (Wealth Anatomy Podcast) and Barb Friedberg (Barbara Friedberg Personal Finance) join Len Penzo (Len Penzo dot Com) on this week’s roundtable to tackle that topic as well as credit mistakes and the cost of breakfast.
Joe & OG tackle a listener letter about tax strategies and share headlines including one we discussed recently….the cost of the American Dream. Can we lower the $130k price tag? We think we can…..
Doug has trivia, we review the hit movie Tammy…..and more.
