Ben Popken On "To The Point" (And A Debate Over Personal Finance Advice)

I will be in a roundtable discussion guest be on KCRW’s “The The Point” at 2:10 PM eastern today.

We’ll be talking about the economy, the growing pressures on consumers, the grocery shrink ray, and what, if anything, you can do about it.
