The Astronomical Cost of Living – Bringing it Back to Earth
You overhear it in restaurants, at the office, on public transit, or at family dinner—it’s on everyone’s mind: things cost so MUCH these days. Whether it’s coming from the generation ahead of you or from a generational peer, everyone wants to wax nostalgic about the cost of living “back in the day.” While the cost of living has certainly gone up, most people conveniently leave out the fact that wages have been steadily climbing as well. However, the increase in wages hasn’t always kept up with the rising cost of living, especially in certain sectors. Today we explore the country’s supposedly astronomical cost of living and see what talking points actually hold true.
In 2018, Yeske Buie hosted four live webinars as an additional way to connect with you throughout the year and to share relevant and timely information related to the markets, the economy, and financial planning strategies. We plan to continue this effort in 2019 and beyond, with our next webinar being held on Wednesday, January 23rd at 11:00am PT / 2:00pm ET. We hope you will save the date and join us for a discussion on the outlook for the new year ahead. In the meantime, we’d like to share recordings of this year’s webinars for those who may have missed them or would like to revisit the information that was presented – we hope you enjoy!
Three years ago, Elissa and Dave became involved with Cappella SF, an exceptional a cappella group founded and directed by Ragnar Bohlin, Emmy award winning director of the San Francisco Symphony Chorus. We were dazzled by the group’s first Christmas album, Light of Gold, that released in 2015 and this year, we are excited to share that Capella SF has released a new album entitled, Timeless: Ten Centuries of Music. Just like the first, this new CD is a reminder of the joy that Cappella SF’s music inspires, and we hope that it fills your ears and soul the same way it has for us.
