The Fine Art of Bartering

January 17, 2019

It’s older than money but it works just as well. It’s not beads or bars of gold, and it’s certainly not Bitcoin. It’s an ancient practice that buys goods and services with no medium of exchange. It’s the fine art of bartering. On this MoneyWise, Rob West and Steve Moore have a some pointers for doing it right. 

Then, they answer your questions at (800) 525-7000 and questions@moneywise.org about the following:

  • Should you save your emergency fund in a savings account or somewhere else?
  • When you retire, does Social Security look at the last 5 years you worked to calculate your rate or do they look at random months throughout your working career?
  • If your wife’s family has an expectation that you will help them financially, how can you navigate this situation?
  • What's the difference between a "Transfer on Death" and a "Payable on Death"?
