Peter Dunn—who is bringing his Pete the Planner column to IBJ, starting March 15—is worried about the upper middle class, a group he says makes good money but often lives beyond their means.
The rising costs (and sizes) of homes, the expense of youth travel sports, car leases and loans parents take out to pay for their kids' college all contribute to a rocky financial picture that means even those with higher incomes might not be saving enough for retirement.
Dunn talks with IBJ Podcast host Mason King about how these concerns led him to start writing and broadcasting about money problems — and how finding solutions to those problems led to his current business model.
