Today is the last Top Links post of the week. If you celebrate Christmas, I hope you have a happy and safe holiday! Think of these four awesome posts today as an early Christmas gift from me to you.
Here’s what I’ve been reading this morning:
- In this week’s video, Tom explains how inflation is measured. And why it might be better to measure it in multi-year stretches of time instead of month-over-month or year-over-year.
- Student loans have been a hot issue for a while now. The pause on payments was set to expire at the end of January, but now has been pushed back to May. If you can afford to continue your payments, now is a great time to pay down debt with zero interest.
- Spending was up nearly a percent and a half in October, but the numbers for November were recently released and things cooled off. Up only 0.6% in November, this article looks at why that might have happened and what it means moving forward.
- A reader wrote in to Ben curious about how the potential growth of crypto adoption could impact the amount of folks investing in the stock market. Ben shares his thoughts in his latest post.
