The “In The Event Of An Emergency” series is devoted to the topic of planning ahead for life’s little (and big) emergencies that we all know will come our way. The series covered topics ranging from making sure you have insurance coverage and an emergency fund, to making sure your family is provided for in case the worst case scenario happens.
The last few days we’ve been talking about how you can prepare yourself for emergencies, both big and small. We looked at what you should put in a safe deposit box.

Ever since last September our (or arguably before then) our economy has been in a downturn. Big companies, small lenders and consumers all engaged in irresponsible behaviors that resulted in the failure of businesses, and necessitated the bailouts of many others. People are being laid off left and right, and things are extremely tight! So […]

These past couple of years we’ve been hearing a lot of talk about how the rich aren’t paying their fair share, they aren’t taxed enough, and that they ought to be spreading the wealth around.
