Father's Day, High Cost Of Internet On H&FF Radio
WASHINGTON (6/14/13)--This Father's Day Sunday, Home & Family Finance Radio imparts some paternal advice, dissects the high-cost of American Internet, and ponders if the stock market's recent highs are sustainable.

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:

  • "Father's Day Lessons." Tim Hoch, author of the book "50 Rules for Sons," Forth Worth, Texas, shares some fatherly wisdom.
  • "Most Expensive Internet in the World." Steve Slon, editorial director for the Saturday Evening Post, Indianapolis, explains why Americans pay more for the Internet than most other developed countries.
  • "Riding the Volatile Market." Michael Farr, president of investment firm Farr, Miller & Washington, Washington, D.C., looks at the stock market's recent record highs, and tells you if now is a good time to invest or disinvest.
