Welcome to the weekly roundup where I share with you interesting articles from across the web. I hope you enjoy and absolutely feel free to share and pass along.
Hello everyone and welcome to another edition of the NextGen Wealth Weekly Roundup. Hope you’re having a great week!
It has been quite the eventful week! With the attacks on Saudi oil facilities spiking oil prices, and the Fed cutting interest rates Wednesday, stocks are still modestly higher Friday, led by health care and technology.
There is some relief that the oil prices didn’t go up any higher. Stocks also have remained pretty positive, with the Dow Jones and the S&P 500 not far off record highs.
Another contributor to this eventful week was the deputy trade negotiators from the U.S. and China resuming face-to-face talks for the first time in almost two months. They will start laying the groundwork for the higher-level negotiations starting early next month.
The fears of slowing global growth have been eased slightly due to economic stimulus around the world, including the monetary easing by the Federal Reserve this week and European Central Bank last week. This seems to have brought some reassurance, but we will continue to watch how the rate cuts affect the market.
So enough of my commentary, let’s jump in and check out some of the best articles I ran across from the past week. Enjoy the weekend and find some time to relax.

Next up, we turn to ESI Money with his thoughts on two numbers Dave Ramsey pushes that he doesn’t fully agree with. One of these is the 12% annual investment returns, which has sparked a lot of controversy online. ESI Money is also skeptical of the 8% retirement withdrawal that Ramsey suggests, and shares some of the problems he has with this theory.
It seems there are two groups when it comes to the subject of Dave Ramsey's financial advice. Group 1 are staunch advocates of Dave's. They love him and his advice to death. They defend him in all circumstances. They are rabid fans, not afraid to share what they've learned and spread the gospel according to ...
Next up, we turn to Keeping Up With the Bulls with a comprehensive list of the best conferences for women to attend. Attending a women’s conference can leave you feeling motivated and inspired, which can translate into your personal and professional life. Read on to find out which conferences you should attend!
Conferences are an investment of time and money. When you attend a women's conference, you leave inspired and motivated to change the world. You make new connections, rekindle existing relationships and increase your chances of a pay increase. These conferences feel extra special if you're in a male dominated industry and get to spend a day with a room filled with women.
We're headed for another recession. At least, that's what people are saying, both on the news and elsewhere in the media. However, with an economy that's thriving right now, where is all of this recession talk coming from?
