The shadow inflation problem

On this week’s Money Matters, Scott and Pat discuss the surprising reasons why inflation is higher than the news indicates.

Scott and Pat advise a new father making $300,000 a year about saving for his child’s future. A Massachusetts caller asks how to develop a more thoughtful Roth conversion strategy for his $1.8 million in retirement savings. A federal employee with $1.2 million in a Thrift Savings Plan asks if he can afford to retire comfortably. A California caller asks if he should pay down his $115,000 mortgage balance with his 401(k). Finally, Scott and Pat advise a saver about how he should handle his multiple life insurance policies.
