I am in Philadelphia helping a very dear friend transition from her independent living community to an assisted community, with an interim stay in a hospital and nursing facility. As a result, the importance of organizing our affairs is very much on my mind.

So I am particularly delighted that Charles Murray, President of the American Institute for Economic Research (AIER), will be joining me on the Solari Report this Thursday.

I am a member of AIER and have been using their financial planning books for years. While I recommend many of their publications, there are two that Charlie and I will focus on this week: How to Avoid Financial Tangles and If Something Should Happen by Maria Brill.

With the New Year approaching, and numerous opportunities to get together with family and friends over the holiday, this is an excellent time to address these issues.

I will be covering the latest developments in the financial markets in Money & Markets and answering your questions in Ask Catherine. If you are a subscriber to The Solari Report, please post your questions at the Subscriber Control Panel before Thursday evening or online as we are live.

More at the blog.

Listen live on Thursday evening by phone or online, or listen at your convenience by downloading the MP3 after it is posted on Friday.

Subscribers to The Solari Report receive access to our complete archive of calls via MP3 recordings and Solari Audio Seminars. You can learn more and subscribe here.
