 Permanent link
WASHINGTON (9/6/13)--Go into debt like a well-run business, but save like someone addicted to socking away money. This week Home & Family Finance Radio tells you how to do both. 
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:
  • "Manage Your Debt Like a Business." Tom Anderson, an investment management analyst and author of the book "The Value of Debt," New York, explains why debt, when managed properly, is a useful tool for families.
  • "Break the Earn-Spend Cycle." Jack Bosch, entrepreneur and author of the book "Forever Cash," Phoenix, lays out his philosophy for money management and building wealth.
  • "Indulge In a Savings Binge." Susan Tiffany, certified credit union financial counselor and director of consumer periodicals, Credit Union National Association, Madison, Wis., recommends making saving fun and building a nest egg quickly by going on a savings bender.
