When people hear “Rob Carrick” they immediately think “Personal Finance” or “Money”. Rob is a (the) personal finance columnist for Globe and Mail and has been writing about his experiences with money at the Globe since 1996.
Rob Carrick is also an author and has a couple books with really long titles: How NOT to move back in with your parents, the young person’s guide to financial empowerment & Good, Bad and Downright Awful in Canadian Investments Today. You can find a link to these on his personal website.
Most recently Rob has been focusing a lot of his attention on writing about the housing market, the financial challenges that are being faced by Generation Y and how a longer lifespan will impact our retirement savings.
As such, it is no surprise that Rob joined us on Episode 17 of the Because Money Podcast:
Ep17 “Generation Y and Mindless Homebuying” – where we discuss young people and their insatiable desire to act recklessly (following right behind their parents) with their money.
