Confronting Four Reverse Mortgage Misconceptions

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. However, at least one reverse mortgage expert finds flaws in the reasoning behind some of the stated points. The first of her stated reasons to avoid reverse mortgages revolves...

5 Couples Put Long-Wear Lipstick To The Ultimate Test

Photographed by Sharokh Mirzai. Lipstick can be incredibly sexy — until you get to the actual sex part. Unless you're planting a cautious peck — which is about as exciting and passionate as it sounds — the stuff gets everywhere. But an array of extreme long-wear lipsticks claim to withstand your raunchiest makeout sessions — with one even promising to last through 90 kisses (which might be a little excessive, but maybe that's just us).We enlisted five real couples to swipe 'em on, make out,...

A year of lessons learned from Google.org

At Google.org, we’re fortunate to work with some of the world’s best social innovators.

As we start the new year, here are the most important lessons we learned from our partnerships. 1. Ask bigger questions, and test the answers. To identify and fund innovative ideas, we ask “how might we” questions. For instance, a...

Take a Virtual Tour of Brazil’s National Museum & Its Artifacts: Google Digitized the Museum’s Collection Before the Fateful Fire

How to describe the magnitude of the loss when Brazil's Museu Nacional caught fire in September? The New Yorker's Alejandro Chacoff ventured an analogy that would resonate with readers of that magazine: "It’s as if, in New York, the American Museum of Natural History and the New School, or a part of the Columbia campus, had been built on the same spot, and then was reduced to ashes." The 200-year-old museum lost an estimated 92.5 percent of its 20-million-item archive, one of the largest collec...

Are you prepared for retirement? Are you PREPARING for retirement?

Quote: Nearly half of middle-class Americans face a slide into poverty as they enter their retirement, a recent study by the Schwartz Center for Economic Policy Analysis at the New School has concluded. That risk has been driven by depressed earnings, depressed asset values and increased health-care costs — causing 74 percent of Americans planning to work past traditional retirement age. Additionally, both private and public pension plans have been allowed to become...

What Brazil Lost In The National Museum Fire

Many foreign correspondents have reached for analogies to give readers a sense of the disaster, but it’s hard to convey the museum’s significance: in addition to containing one of the richest collections of natural-history artifacts in the world, it was one of Latin America’s leading centers for postgraduate studies. It’s as if, in New York, the American Museum of Natural History and the New School, or a part of the Columbia campus, had been built on the same spot, and then was reduced to ashes....

Some Google employees are talking about pushing for a brand new kind of workers union (GOOG, GOOGL)

Google's capitulation to worker demands that the company stop providing AI technology to the military, may not be the end of Google's troubles. Some of the workers who helped organize the protest inside Google are 'talking about unionization.' Union talk from people who pull down $200,000 a year isn't going to endear them to big portions of the country. The average US household doesn't earn half that amount. But supporters of the protest say maybe the time has come to create a type of union...

Some economists want the US government to put up to $50,000 in 'Baby Bond' bank accounts

Two economists have proposed an idea for "Baby Bonds," a one-time deposit into a child's bank account at the time they're born. The program would help create upward mobility and reduce inequality in the US, they claim. Rich families would receive around $500 while poor ones would receive up to $50,000. Darrick Hamilton and William Darity have a thought-provoking way to help families pay for college: Give every baby between $500 and $50,000 at the time they are born. Hamilton and Darity, both...
