I have several accounts at Vanguard (401K, IRA, regular account invested in various Vanguard funds, a stock account inherited from my mother). As a result they keep sending me emails about how to invest, or news regarding investing. Today's arrival gave some up-to-the-minute info, how off the keyboard.

A bankruptcy judge wrote an article about why so many Americans declare bankruptcy: (I hope you can read this. Let me know if you can't and I'll give you a couple of sentences and an overview).

A Nobel prizewinning Economist offers some suggestions on how to have a higher retirement income: (same story. If this is behind a wall let me know and I'll pull some sentences and give you an overview)

Or, I can give you the simple wrap up for both:
