In this maiden voyage of the Money Management podcast, meet our host, Ed Newton, as he puts things into context to help us understand when and where we are. Reflecting on the technological and financial highlights and surprises of the last few decades, we are reminded that the future is not always predictable, but that we are living in one of the best possible times to be alive.

Ed also has some good news about increases in 401K and profit-sharing plan contribution limits for the new year– most people will see an increase in allowed contributions. Find out if YOUR contribution limit for your retirement or profit-sharing plan has been increased!
