The Dark Side of the Personal Finance Industry
04/10/13 - Wednesday Topical Currents goes behind the scenes of the individual finance industry, with journalist Helaine Olen. She’s written POUND FOOLISH: Exposing the Dark Side of the Personal Finance Industry. Most well-known TV and radio experts sell dreams that are seldom reached. Many of them promote a theory that disciplined investments can make us rich. But that notion relies on a healthy market and no life setbacks. Some touts have strong industry ties which taint their message. That’s Topical Currents . . . Wednesday's at 1pm on WLRN-HD1, rebroadcast at 7pm on WLRN-HD2 and audio on-demand after the live show.
