Rethinking College – With Jerry Bowyer

Show Notes

On this MoneyWise, Steve Moore and Rob West speak with economist, Jerry Bowyer, about his opinions on the importance of college. They discuss alternatives to college and why it might be a good idea to consider other options due to the financial burden of college and student loans. 

Next, they answer your questions at (800) 525-7000 and about the following:

  • My wife and I are considering becoming missionaries in another country. Can you contribute to an IRA with your “earned income” being other people’s donations and charitable gifts?
  • I am 68 years old and plan on taking social security at 70. Is there a way to reduce my tax burden once I enter this season of life?
  • What is your opinion on mortgage protection plans?
  • Do you have recommendations on term life insurance?
  • My husband and I were taught how to make an extra payment on our mortgage. Would it make sense to pay two extra payments per year?
  • How do you calculate the amount of life insurance you need?
  • What are your opinions on an accidental insurance policy?
