This weekend we say goodbye to 2016 and hello to 2017! It also means that there's no chance we're doing a live show this weekend...so you get one more holiday best-of from the Jill no Money team, aka me and Mark. Consider it our New Year's gift to you. P.S. stay tuned for an EXCITING ANNOUNCEMENT IN 2017, which we think you'll enjoy :) Back to this week...
First up you're going to hear from a guy you should be thanking every time you contribute to your 401(k): Ted Benna, who is more commonly known as the "father of the 401(k)" because he created and gained IRS approval of the first savings plan. That's right, he's the guy responsible for your 401(k). Pretty cool, huh? It's amazing to hear his story and the history of the plan and how the whole thing came about.
In hour two we chat with Rana Foroohar, journalist and author of "Makers and Takers," a book that discusses how the misguided financial practices and philosophies that nearly toppled the global financial system have come to infiltrate all American businesses. Rana shows how the “financialization of America," the trend by which finance and its way of thinking have come to reign supreme, is perpetuating Wall Street’s reign over Main Street, widening the gap between rich and poor, and threatening the future of the American Dream.
