Listeners React to Three Topics From Last Week’s Show

Duration: 8:27

We received a lot of calls and emails about last week’s show. They all had to do with three conversations around the announcement from Business Roundtable, claiming Social Security and sending kids to college. Listen to Ric Edelman share some of the comments from listeners and set the record straight.


Does It Make Sense to Send Your Child to Community College?

Duration: 10:38

You can dramatically reduce the cost of higher education by sending your kids to community college. Does it make sense to do this for, at the very least, their freshman year? Listen to Ric Edelman address this question and breakdown the benefits and risks of this strategy.


How Much Should You Tip When Dining Out?

Duration: 9:01

That’s the question syndicated columnist Michelle Singletary recently posed to her readers at The Washington Post. She’s a unique voice in the world of personal finance and is known for digging deep into your daily decisions about money. Listen to Ric Edelman and Michelle discuss how much you should tip a server and other decisions involving dollar signs.


Beware of Brokers Promoting Yield Enhancement Strategies

Duration: 10:56

These are very complex investment strategies that are often pitched as low risk. The truth is that at one bank, clients have lost more than $60 million to these strategies. Listen to Ric Edelman share more about this unbelievable story and get a quick education on the dangers of leverage.
