Spring is here! Now that we’re getting caught up after resetting our clocks, what else do we need to catch up on? What’s the latest in the news?
To start, a $1.9 trillion stimulus package just passed. Who gets a stimulus check? How will this impact the economy? What will this package provide and where does it have holes? Don talks about who is benefitting most and who might end up paying for the bill in the future.
Are we facing inflation in the future? We used to have much higher interest rates when it comes to CD rates or interest rates. Given the technology, the labor force efficiency, and global supply chain today, Don doesn’t see the same rate of inflation as in the past but prices will likely increase. Some trends last for several years, but we don’t want to make bets and try to time the market.
For our Cash Connection, Robert from Neptune, NJ is wondering if it’s too late to refinance his mortgage. Since the rates are a little higher now, did he miss the boat? Like many financial decisions, choosing to refinance depends on a number of variables. Consider your circumstances–your current rate, your time horizon, your goals, and the costs it would require.
Lastly, while it is a ways off, where would Don like to retire some day? Stay put or move? Or a little bit of both? Where would you go?
