WASHINGTON (7/13/12)--Sunday's Home & Family Finance Radio program anticipated the end of money--and told how to find more of it.

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

  • "Personal Productivity Secrets." Maura Thomas, Austin, Texas, a 20-year personal productivity leader, and founder and chief trainer of Regain Your Time.com, talks about managing the details of life and work.
  • "The End of Money." David Wolman, Portland, Ore., is a contributing editor at Wired and author of "The End of Money," described by one reviewer as "a tidy history of money and its discontents, [as well as] a travel story." In the book and in this conversation, Wolman considers the future of cash and how it will affect your wallet.
  • "Find More Money." Susan Tiffany, certified credit union financial counselor and director of consumer periodicals, Credit Union National Association (CUNA), Madison, Wis., suggests ways to discover money in your budget for saving and paying off debt.
  • "Too Late to Travel and Save This Summer?" Susan Tanzman, owner and president of Martin's Travel and Tours, Los Angeles, offers ideas for cost-effective summer travel.
