Should I go into engineering?

– retireby40.org/

Should I go into engineering?Recently, I received a few emails asking whether getting a degree in engineering is a good idea. Okay, I have to say I am not comfortable giving career advice to students. I’m afraid I would steer them wrong and mess up their future! I’d rather give advice to people in their 20’s and 30’s who have a bit more life experience and can make their own decisions…

On Friday I see the following tweet:

— Stefanie Mullen (@ooph) June 21, 2013I think I’m pretty funny, so I write back:
“@ooph Nice! I’ll enter only if @JustinBieber tells me he budgets and thinks they’re sexy 😉 Deal?”

– consumerismcommentary.com/

Four Reasons to Talk Honestly About MoneyPrior to starting Consumerism Commentary, I didn’t talk about money. I’d encountered money problems with friends and families, and dealt with the problems as they came, but except for a conversation later on with my father once I was starting to improve my financial situation, it just wasn’t a topic for general discussion…

How Millenials Are Changing the Economy
Jane has always wanted to see Aruba. She wants Robert to take her there to celebrate his late retirement. But Robert’s head is pounding from an unrelenting fear: they won’t have enough money to spare from their savings.
Fifty-six years (give or take a decade) working for a company, and you’d think there’d be a comfortable package waiting for him, but this year, Robert’s company is sinking and the funds aren’t there for him, or his retiring colleagues…

– canadianfinanceblog.com

Should You Rethink an Annuity for Retirement?One of the most reviled financial products out there is the annuity. Many people don’t like them because it seems like a restriction. After all, you give your money to someone else, and they parse it out to you on a regular basis.

Last week, Senator Elizabeth Warren (D-Mass.) proposed converting the regulatory environment for American banks into a “two-tiered” system that would separate the major Wall Street banks from their comparatively tiny, small-town banks and credit unions.
Warren, who was among the severest of critics of major banks during the 2008 crisis (when she chaired the TARP Congressional Oversight Panel) and more recently as a member of the Senate Banking, Housing and Urban Affairs Committee, suggested that it’s time for the labyrinth of regulations that big banks have to follow be straightened and simplified for smaller, community-based lenders…

Keep Calm And Carry On

– libertyinvestor.com

The old saying, “Keep calm and carry on,” from The Blitz in the United Kingdom during World War II has been morphed into various creative alternatives in recent years for the younger set and adorns their T-shirts and walls.
But we don’t need any derivations now.
Investors are smack-dab in the beginnings of the unraveling of easy-money policies that most major governments have been conducting in the hopes of getting the global economy moving again without sinking into collapse…
