Listen now as we kick-off Fundamental Finance – the first season of Penny Radio. We take a look at what money actually is and delve into whether money really exists. We also touch upon what types of money there are, how we get it and how we use it.
Join me for this episode where we take a look at banks accounts – what they are and why they are one of the first steps to mastering your money. We also take a look at what debit and credit mean and how we use them in everyday life.
In this week’s episode we tackle one of the most fundamental of the Fundamental Finance season’s topics – interest. We go through what interest is; why it is important in helping us to build wealth and financial health; where we might come across it; and the difference between simple and compound interest. Most importantly we look at how to calculate interest for ourselves. Make sure to check out the examples in the show notes.
Tune in to Penny Radio for the second part of our exploration of interest. In this episode we look at some real world examples of when you’ll come across interest. We’ll find out what the Annual Equivalent Rate on savings accounts and the Annual Percentage Rate of Charge on loans are. We’ll also look at whether using our savings to pay off expensive debt is a good idea. Remember to check out the show notes to see these examples and try putting in your own numbers for your own personal situation.
Tune in to this week’s episode of Penny Radio and join us as we bust the jargon of inflation. In this first of two episodes we look at what inflation actually is and the different types.
