If you can't pay cash, don't buy it.

This doesn't include a mortgage. Just make sure you're out of all other debt and have a 3-6 month emergency fund FIRST. (Don't get a mortgage that's more than 25% of your take-home pay on a 15-year, fixed-rate.)

If you're tired of just making minimum payments and living paycheck to paycheck, there is HOPE.

Moral policy = good economics: What’s needed to lift up 140 million poor and low-income people further devastated by the pandemic

Seven months into a global pandemic, U.S. families are suffering: 225,000 lives have been lost, 30 million workers have lost either jobs or significant hours of work, nearly every state is facing sharp drops in revenue that will threaten even more cuts to essential social programs and jobs, and the....

This week, we count down the top 5 charts showing what's at stake for workers.

5. As Social Security payments rose over the last 60 years, senior poverty declined dramatically. Social Security is the most successful anti-poverty program, and it must be protected and expanded. https://bit.ly/3kSwquo

4. The number of people on unemployment insurance remains breathtakingly high. Nearly 22 million more people are on UI now versus one year ago, and they have gone over 12 weeks without the extra $600 in benefits that Senate Republicans allowed to expire. https://bit.ly/2GeM7xc

3. If the minimum wage had been raised to $2 in 1963, with future increases tied to the cost of living, it would be $14.79 in 2020—more than twice its current value of $7.25. Five years of increases could reverse that trend. https://bit.ly/3efnMUr

2. Because of the types of jobs women have had―including disproportionate caregiving responsibilities―women have faced disproportionate job loss during the COVID-19 pandemic. Black and Latina women workers, in particular, have suffered most. https://bit.ly/2JfMusl

1. A chart that says it all: Although Americans are working more productively than ever, the fruits of their labors have primarily accrued to those at the top and to corporate profits, especially in recent years. https://bit.ly/34G8SU0

Racial disparities in income remained largely unchanged amid strong income growth in 2019. The median Black household earned just 61 cents for every dollar of income the median white household earned, while the median Hispanic household earned 74 cents.

African American households finally surpassed their pre-recession median income 12 years after the start of the Great Recession—the last racial group to do so. Unfortunately, this recovery has been cut short by massive job losses during the pandemic.

A rigged economy: CEO pay surged 14% in 2019 to $21.3 million on average, and they now earn 320 times as much as their typical workers. CEO compensation grew by 1,167% from 1978 to 2019, while the compensation of a typical worker rose just 13.7%.

While Congress, namely Senate Republicans, can’t even agree to give $600 to unemployed workers during a pandemic, they have looked the other way as CEO pay has skyrocketed for decades.

Why a new generation of Black farmers is getting into the business

There were only 45,500 Black farmers — roughly 1.3% of all US farmers — in the United States in 2017. That figure was much higher a century ago. But a new generation of young Black farmers is still getting into the business.

"Probably the biggest adult flex there is... I AM DEBT FREE!!!!!! 🎉🎉🎉🎉 Back when I started my career, I was making way more money than I ever did in my life. My first two paychecks, I can’t even tell you where it went/ what I spent it on. That’s when I started to do research about financial planning and found Dave Ramsey. I read his book Total Money Makeover, and realized that having debt shouldn’t be the “norm.” So I started budgeting, paying my debt intensively and I stuck by it. From reading the book, the stories of others’ financial journeys made me even more grateful for the parents I have, the scholarships I received and a hospital that paid for my tuition because I was able to graduate without student loans. The only debt I had was my new car that I was forced to get due to an accident (was very close to paying the car before it off). I knew the goals I had, so I bought my “mom car” w longevity in mind, literally till the wheels fall off. And now... that car is mine!!!! I am happy that I learned at such a young age that just because others have debts, doesn’t mean I have to have any. I’ve also realized I have a lot of discipline when it comes to making financial decisions.Now on to baby step 3 (building my emergency fun- for all you non Dave Ramsey followers).... then saving for moving out (finally), my possible return to school & investing!!! And duh, now I’ll have money for all the trips I could ever take in the world!!!! Here’s to NEVER having a car payment ever again. And being able to live like no one else 🤍"

Saving money is a GOOD thing.

When you have more money in savings, and less debt, you'll begin to feel financial peace. THEN, you’ll start spending more money. When people aren’t giving their income away to banks and car companies in the form of payments, they free up their money to SPEND some of it.

Being wise with money will NOT crash the economy.
