Money and Moral Balance
The sales are starting, the stores are open late, and many of us are gearing up to spend more money than we actually have in a holiday season with deep roots in religion. We explore the turmoil many of us experience with money in our day-to-day lives — and how we might work towards a moral and practical balance for ourselves and the next generation. Featuring Nathan Dungan, a financial educator and president of Share Save Spend, an organization that helps people develop healthy financial habits.
