MOB #100 – Hundredth Episode Special

July 27th, 2009 · podcasts

This week’s episode of Millionaire or Bust is our hundredth episode special. With some help from Talli from BeingHealthy.TV (who was also my former co-host) I cover feedback from Carlos from Puerto Rico, Christian from Vilkri.com and Erk from erkpod.com.au. Then as usual, I get into the news!

  1. Oil at $68.75/barrel up from $63.56/barrel.
  2. U.S. gasoline prices fall to $2.48/gallon.
  3. Seven regional banks fail.
  4. Guaranty Financial, No.2 Texas bank, may fail.
  5. On Friday the federal minimum wage jumps to $7.25 an hour from $6.55. Economists differ as to whether that will hurt or help low-income workers.
  6. NJ woman’s bake sale helps her make mortgage payment.

Next week the format of M.O.B. is going to be changing, so keep your eye out for that. Thank you all so much for making this run off 100 episodes so special. Without you all, it wouldn’t be possible.

    Awesome show #100! Congratulations! Loved it!
    It is amazing to me, how in troubled times, people come up with solutions like the NJ lady with the bake sale. More power to her. Looking forward to what show #101 will be.

    My first time listening to your show and I’d like to respond to Christian’s comment. In October of 2008, I kept running into a quote about missing some of the best trading days out of a multi-decade time span. I found it silly for a number of reasons. The main one being that from my observations, the strongest stock market rallies tend to happen during large down swings. Odds are, if you miss the best days, you miss a lot of the down side.

    Congratulations on hitting 100 shows, David. Sorry I didn’t get a voice mail in to you. I had one in mind. I just forgot to do it.

    Thanks Maria Isabel for listening. Really appreciate it. 🙂

    Fresh Start, thanks for the comment. You made some great points. I’ll probably be mentioning your article on show 102 if there is space. If not, definitely the show afterwards. Hope you enjoy the show.

    Shawno, no worries. Things get busy. Just glad you’re listening.

    Thanks, Ray! Glad you’re enjoying the show.
