I’m featured in US News & World Report’s Alpha Consumer blog today. (New US News readers, please click here for an easy-to-use introduction to this blog.) Kimberly Palmer, a US News reporter, asked me these questions (and a few more):
- “There are so many books out there on young people and money…what’s different about your advice?”
- “What kind of stories do you hear from your readers who are frustrated with their financial experiences?”
- “Name three things young people can do to improve their financial situation.”
In my responses, I discuss why personal-finance advice is usually boring, give some quick tips for getting started, and threaten to commit suicide if I read another column about not spending money on lattes.
