David Jackson: Financial Advice For Troubled Economic Times


The current economy has given just about everyone the jitters. The high cost of gas has triggered price increases in basic necessities at the grocery store. The housing industry is in a downturn and the mortgage industry has been hit hard. Many businesses who count on disposable income restaurants and specialty stores are suffering.

And of course there's the fear and trepidation that many feel as they open up their 401k statements. So is there anything new or different that people can do to better survive the recession? KCUR's Susan Wilson asked financial advisor David Jackson.

A native of Pittsburgh, Pennsylvania, Susan admits that her “first love” was radio, being an avid listener since childhood. However, she spent much of her career in mental health, healthcare administration, and sports psychology (Susan holds a PhD in clinical psychology from the University of Pittsburgh in Pittsburgh Pennsylvania and an MBA from the Bloch School of Business at UMKC.) In the meantime, Wilson satisfied her journalistic cravings by doing public speaking, providing “expert” interviews for local television, and being a guest commentator/contributor to KPRS’s morning drive time show and the teen talk show “Generation Rap.”
