Tax Shocker

By Giggy Ignati - Mar 20 2019
Read more
Heather Long's recent assertion that most people will be paying less in taxes - I want to see some real data to back that one up. I did my taxes. I live on a fixed income. My gross tax amount on the same level of income went up by 28%. That's not what was withheld. That is how much more in taxes I will be paying in 2018 than I did in 2017. Go check your data and get back to me.

Rank #5: Field of Presidential Dreams

Podcast cover
Read more

After months and months of speculation, former Vice President Joe Biden announced he’d be running for president in 2020. Already an early frontrunner, Biden joins a crowded field of potential Democratic nominees. There are now more than 20 candidates running, from policy wonk Elizabeth Warren to newcomer Pete Buttigieg to 2016 veteran Bernie Sanders.

The Iowa caucuses are nine months away and if everyone stays in the race, it could challenging for voters to keep track of where the candidates stand on critical policy issues like healthcare, taxes, and climate change.

This week on Money Talking, WNYC's Charlie Herman talks to Rick Newman, senior columnist for Yahoo Finance, about some of the fiscal policies being put forth by the Democratic contenders — and what they might mean for your pocketbook.

Rank #11: Uncovering The Secrets of the Consulting Firm McKinsey

Podcast cover
Read more

Much of the way influential consulting firm McKinsey & Co. operates is shrouded in secrecy. But recent reporting by the New York Times has revealed some of the company’s secrets, including its involvement with controversial companies like Purdue Pharma, the maker of OxyContin, as well as foreign leaders and governments in Saudi Arabia and South Africa. Additional stories have focused on the firm’s hedge fund MIO and alleged failures to make required financial disclosures.

McKinsey has defended its work around the world. In a statement, the firm told the Times that “since 1926, McKinsey has sought to make a positive difference to the businesses and communities in which our people live and work.” 

This week on Money Talking, Charlie Herman talks with New York Times investigative editor Walt Bogdanich and investigative reporter Mike Forsythe about their reporting on the often hidden world of McKinsey and why it matters.

Rank #13: Hey, Big Spender: Presidential Candidates And The Race to Raise Money

Podcast cover
Read more

Recent financial reports filed by the 2020 presidential candidates show vastly different amounts of money raised in varying amounts from many different sources. Some candidates are focusing on small donors, others are turning to high-dollar bundlers and some are dipping into their own bank accounts.

For example, Senator Elizabeth Warren raised raised $6 million in three months for her campaign, while Joe Biden and Beto O’Rourke each raised that much in just a day. Yet with more than a year to go until the 2020 election, how much will the money they raise today matter in the long run?

This week on WNYC’s Money Talking, host Charlie Herman talks to CNN national political writer Fredreka Schouten and The Washington Post national political reporter Michelle Lee about the candidates’ funds so far and their chances in the long run.
