H&FF Radio: Gold, Young Drivers And Marriage
WASHINGTON (7/12/13)--After listening to this week's Home & Family Finance Radio, you might find yourself entertaining thoughts of gold prospecting, choosing the perfect car for your teenager, or asking to see your fiance's credit report.
In this episode, which you can listen to on the Internet, host Paul Berry, Washington, D.C., journalist and broadcaster, discusses these topics with special guests:
  • "Gold Rush." Miguel Perez-Santalla, vice president of business development at the peer-to-peer gold exchange BullionVault, London, dissects the gold market, offering advice on whether you should invest and the Federal Reserve's impact on the price of precious metals.
  • "Young Drivers, Affordable Wheels." Jessica Anderson, an editor at personal-finance magazine Kiplinger, Washington D.C., explains which cars make financial sense for teenagers.
  • "Before You Marry, Talk Finances." Patrick Bet-David, author and founder of the financial-education advocacy and insurance marketing agency People Helping People, Woodland Hills, Calif., encourages couples considering marriage to disclose and discuss their personal finances with each other before walking down the aisle.
