Home buying debt-free holidays on HandFF Radio
WASHINGTON (11/21/12)--H&FF Radio this past Sunday offered financial solutions for a challenging economy, extolled the American dream of home ownership for all, and shared advice for fun holidays sans debt.

The show, which you also can hear later via the Internet, featured Paul Berry, Washington, D.C., journalist and broadcaster, discussing these topics with special guests:

  • "Get Your Finances in Shape." William Harris, CEO of Personal Capital Management Inc., New York, former CEO of PayPal and Intuit, offered financial solutions for turbulent times.
  • "Don't Rent--Buy!" Author Eddie Fadel, Oak Brook, Ill., a firm believer in the American dream, challenged misconceptions tied to the notion that, in this economy, renting a house is cheaper than home ownership.
  • "Debt-Proof the Holidays." Author and financial expert Mary Hunt, Orange County, Calif., told listeners how to have fabulous holidays without overspending or using credit.
Home & Family Finance is a resource center for personal finance information at the Credit Union National Association (CUNA). The radio show is sponsored by CO-OP Network, the national credit union ATM network; Cabot Creamery Cooperative, maker of award-winning cheddar; and the Defense Credit Union Council and member credit unions, serving those who serve the country worldwide.
