The Dime Roll: Investing 101, Coffee, Economic Myths, and More

August 19, 2016

In this week's Dime Roll we've got coffee and bonds. First, our resident financial mastermind gives you a little Investing 101 lesson on what bonds are and how they work, and then a guest blogger takes you on a statewide tour of some of her favorite coffee shops! Plus, as always, links to some of the best personal finance content on the internet.

If you love the Dime, do us a favor and share it with your friends. We’re always looking for new Facebook and Twitter followers, and don’t forget to forward the weekly newsletter to everyone you know who you think might enjoy reading. Thank you!
