Dear Dave, My husband and I are both 50, and we make about $50,000 a year. We have a little bit of debt, and recently my mother-in-law moved in with us due to health issues. Weve always gotten by, but now were struggling with the additional expense of having her with us. We love her, but were unsure what to do financially. Do you have any suggestions?

Harvey Mackay | July 28, 2015

The U.S. governments Bureau of Economic Analysis (BEA) released its latest Gross Output (GO) statistic, a broader measure of U.S. economic activity that I have been advocating for years, and it confirms little or no economic growth in the economy in 2015.

Chris Versace | July 27, 2015
