Radical Personal Finance: Financial Independence, Early Retirement, Investing, Insurance, Financial Planning

Dr. Gary North has dedicated 10 hours per week for the last 40+ years to the task of investigating what the Bible has to say about economics.

In the process, he has written a verse-by-verse commentary of the entirety of the Old Testament and the New Testament (totaling 8,550 pages).

He is now in the process of publishing his capstone works titled: Christian Economics. He has published the Student's Edition and Teacher's Edition (free at link below) and is working on the Scholar's Edition and Activist's Edition.

I have a listener who wrote to me and asked me how they can increase their income when it's been decimated by a cancer diagnosis.

I do my best to help.

Many people think that saving more money is going to mean they have to live like a pauper. But it doesn't have to be like that. There is another way...a way to save more money and live a fancier lifestyle at the same time!

I recently worked with a consulting client who had this problem: because of a previous (serious) cancer diagnosis, he is unable to qualify for life insurance. How can he protect his family in case he dies soon?

I thought it a really interesting challenge. And since I've thought a lot about this particular problem, I thought I'd go ahead and share my thoughts with you.

Enjoy!

Today on Radical Personal Finance, we celebrate Tax Day in the United States (April 17, 2018).

As we all reflect on the actions of the government we US Americans have just supported with our tax money, I thought it would be a good day to read to you a very helpful essay called, The Law.

The Law was written in 1850 by Frédéric Bastiat, a French economist.
If you haven't previously read this essay, be fo

rewarned that the first third is fast-moving and the last third is fast-moving, but the middle drags a little.Hear it through, though. You'll be glad you did.

On Episode 466 of Radical Personal Finance, I discussed the idea of the US Government's certain default on its stated obligations and commitments by referencing Professor Lawrence Kotlikoff's Congressional testimony on this subject.

After that show, my friend David Stein (host of Money for the Rest of Us) emailed me to tell me that I was wrong. :)

So, I invited him on the show to debate it with me.

Enjoy!
