“Should I buy a new car?” If you asked almost every personal finance pundit that question, they’ll give you a bunch of reasons why you should buy used instead. Our founder, personal finance expert Ramit Sethi, disagrees. Used cars can be a good way to go. But to apply a broad rule that “used is the best” is short-sighted. In fact, Ramit thinks there are many more reasons why people should buy a new car than used. Is it cheaper to buy a new or used car in the long run?  Thi...

Luckily, there are ways to counteract our natural habits.Retirement can feel abstract—especially for young people who are just starting in their careers—which makes preparing for it less of a priority. By understanding how the brain impacts certain decisions, w...
