RMD episode 10/13

Did I (and Fidelity and Vanguard) sleep through some important info? They and I were under the impression that 2021 was the only year RMDs could be avoided.

Inflation Act

Please stop spreading misinformation. The accurate name is “Inflation Act” with no “Reduction” in there. Spending more doesn’t reduce inflation.

Informative at times; very rookie info other times

What is that terrible screeching sound at the beginning of each podcast?? It started appearing maybe around late December ‘21.

WSJ has a tough task on hand because a lot of young folks are entering the financial world these days, and so WSJ has been releasing some podcasts that offer tips and guidelines for rookies who are learning the ropes of personal finance. That makes some episodes too skippable for those who have been at it financially for years. Sometimes I still listen to those episodes geared towards young folks but I’d prefer each episode to be more deeply informative.
