Sometimes economic choices are about money; sometimes they’re about religion. On this episode of Up Close, we explore both.
First, The Reformed Broker, Joshua M. Brown, discusses the effect all the free advice we get from television and online pundits is having on our bank accounts. He is co-author of Clash of the Financial Pundits: How the Media Influences Your Investment Decisions For Better or Worse.
Then, George Washington University’s Prof. Carmel Chiswick takes an economic lens to the practice of religion, viewing time as our biggest asset when it comes to making decisions about religious practice. Her book is Judaism in Transition: How Economic Choices Shape Religious Tradition.
Finally, investment adviser Ric Edelman dispenses his advice about how Americans can do a better job saving for retirement in his book The Truth About Retirement Plans and IRAs.
