A hard look at financial pros and cons with two of the best-known experts on TV Its your money ... isnt it? When you take a good, hard look at who (or what) is controlling your biggest investments, you may just find its not you. In some cases, it may be that no one is getting the job done and, in other instances, you may find that outside forces are in control: your employer or the government. Who is contributing and managing your retirement account? Who is handling your mortgage? Veteran financial journalists Ali Velshi and Christine Romans tackle every major money issue, from homes and debt to education and employment, and along the way they place the ownership back in our own hands, empowering the reader with prescriptive, how-to information to come out on top. Taking complex financial concepts and turning them into kitchen table economics, You Did What With My Money? is an entertaining read from two respected experts. Should you rent a house for the next few years until you repair your finances or jump on this once-in-a-generation buyers market and low interest rates and buy a home? Is a college degree still worth it, or are so-called "ladder" careers that can help you become a successful small business owner without a college degree more worthwhile? Providing advice from opposite ends of the spectrum, the authors clearly present the pros and cons of the financial worries plaguing us all, allowing the reader to make a decision that best suits his or her lifestyle.
