An opponent of reverse mortgage products recently wrote two columns at Forbes discussing reasons that the business should be avoided, and that potential borrowers searching for ways to fund their retirements would be better served by exploring other financial options. RMD reached out to Professor Teresa Ghilarducci from The New School’s department of economics to expand on the points she made in a January Forbes article saying that reverse mortgages are “a bust” because a senior’s average hom...

Forbes Offers Reasons to Avoid Reverse Mortgages

There are at least four major reasons that potential borrowers should avoid taking a reverse mortgage, according to economics professor Teresa Ghilarducci of The New School based in New York, N.Y. in a new column at Forbes. While admitting that reverse mortgages may work for some, she says that is not true of everyone.

How Sampling Transformed Music and Created New Tapestries of Sound: An Interactive Demonstration by Producer/DJ Mark Ronson

We know the origin story of hip hop as the product of an enterprising subculture of young, mostly African-American, West Indian, and Latino tastemakers in the Bronx (or first in Brooklyn, according to an alternate history). We’ve seen at least one of the dozens of documentaries and dramatizations centered on this pivotal moment in musical history in the late 70s/early 80s—when pioneers like DJ Kool Herc and Grandmaster Flash began using two turntables and a mixer to splice together bars ...

Apple Chicago: Don’t Call It a Store, It’s a Town Square

As shopping increasingly becomes a retail experience, and online commerce challenges in-store, brands are jockeying to elevate the customer journey. Few brands are setting the bar as high as Apple, which is pioneering a new retail model that aims to transform the notion of what a “store” means in 2017 (and beyond). Apple, Interbrand’s reigning “Best Global Brand,” has passed 500 retail stores worldwide, generating more than $42 billion in revenue. In 2013 hired Burberry CEO Angela Ahrendts as S...

She calculated the cost of applying to residency to be greater than $7,500 when taking into account loans and interest. If you have not participated in the U.S. medical educational industrial complex, this may seem like an astonishingly high number for job-seeker whose salary pro...
