Today, we welcome Nick Magguilli. Nick is the chief operating officer and data scientist at Ritholtz Wealth Management where he oversees operations across the firm and provides insight on business intelligence. He is also the author of, a blog focused on the intersection of data and personal finance. His work has been featured in the Wall Street Journal, CNBC, and the Los Angeles Times. Nick graduated from Stanford University with a degree in economics. The occasion for today’s chat is not only to discuss what’s going on with the economy today, but also to chat about his new book, Just Keep Buying, which I thoroughly enjoyed.    

We talk about our economy, how our financial decisions affect our long-term savings, the financial investments that we should put our focus on, why early financial education is important, why you shouldn’t wait and start planning your retirement funds, and so much more!
