1. A Promised Land by Barack Obama, narrated by the author (Random House Audio)...
Dear Dave, my daughter is in college, and I’ve always warned her to stay away from credit cards. Recently, I learned she got a department store credit card despite my advice. She has stayed within her credit limit, but she has never made any of the payments.
Dear Dave: My fiancé and I are getting married in three weeks, but he lost his job as an experienced HVAC technician at a hospital a few days ago. Do you think we should still go on a honeymoon, or wait until things are more stable...
Dear Dave: I bring home $4,100 a month in military disability pay and Social Security combined. My wife brings home an additional $2,000 each month. Should we base our emergency fund level on her income only, since mine is guaranteed?
Dear Dave: How do you feel about check-cashing companies? — Norman
Dear Norman: I’m not a big fan of check-cashing companies. They’re not nearly as bad as payday lenders, but it still seems kind of silly to me there’s even a market for this kind of thing.
Dear Dave: I'd like to get involved in real estate investing, but I don't have a lot of cash at present. What do you think of the idea of crowdfunding as a way to invest in real estate? — Adam
Dear Adam: I've got a bunch of real estate, and I love it.
