Edelman Financial Engines' Everyday Wealth with Jean Chatzky

Why you should be interested in interest rates

Season 1 Episode 37

The fed continues to work on lowering inflation rates, using interest rate hikes as a method for cooling the economy. As a result, markets tumbled. Now analysts and investors are trying to predict the size of the next Fed hike coming later in September, and the market will move day to day as it tries to price in those potential hikes. This week on Edelman Financial Engines’ Everyday WealthTM, Jean, Soledad, and Edelman Financial Engines wealth planner Rose Niang will be discussing why we should be interested in rising interest rates and what the upsides are, if any. They’ll also discuss lump sum pensions, when to buy big ticket items, and whether or not buying a second home can help hedge against inflation.
