Americans and Saving

March 3, 2008 at 5:10 pm | Posted in On Air | 7 Comments

Join us for a discussion about Americans and how they save money.  Many don’t think they have enough money to save, or don’t have any “extra” money to put away.  But now, one group is saying that even members of the “working poor” classification can find a way to save and improve their economic situation.  We’ll talk to a Federal Reserve Economist, a Wachovia Savings Director and a representative from a non-profit program called America Saves about what anyone who wants to save can do to increase their wealth.  What do you want to know about saving money?  Do you have any tricks that help you stash away dollars?

    I actually don’t care if it is paid back.
    I’m glad Charlotte banks are community-minded, and rather generous themselves.

  4. Read Dave Ramsey’s book “The Total Money Makeover”. He explains how ANYONE can get out of debt and save money. If they really want to….
