The world of status symbols and all their various manifestations (“quiet luxury,” “stealth wealth,” and even conspicuous dressing down as a backhanded sign of prestige) has operated in a more or less predictable way over the course of history—until now. Amy X. Wang, whose reporting for the New York Times uncovered a replica black market that’s exploded in popularity in recent years, joins me to discuss.

Writer Elise Loehnen (“On Our Best Behavior”) joined me to explore how our money stories make us spend, work, and live. Distinct cultural scripts shape our relationship with money, like “sloth” and “greed” or the idea that “a man should be a provider.” Even if you’re not consciously abiding by this societal shorthand, Elise says, it probably influences your attitudes.

We're always told how expensive children are once you have them—but how do you prepare for them financially before they're here? How should you adapt or shift your budget when it comes to doctor's visits, insurance policies, TTC tools, and more?

You know them, you love them, and you probably own them—but do you understand them? By “them,” I mean exchange-traded funds, or “ETFs.” We’re digging deep into these magical little devices (everything from fee structures, to diversification, to how “bond ETFs” might be a great replacement for your complex bond configurations). We’re joined by Samara Cohen, Chief Investment Officer of ETF and Index Investments at BlackRock—one of the largest providers of ETFs in the game—to see how she’s thinking about ETFs in 2024.

A recent Bloomberg Opinion piece said, "Your 401(k) will be gone in a decade," sounding off alarm bells in the MWK community. Is it true, and if so, what does it really entail?

If you've ever waded into personal finance content, you’re probably familiar with lifestyle creep. It gets a lot of airtime because it’s a natural financial experience: to spend more as you earn more. But because there's no positive equivalent about intentionally upgrading your lifestyle, all enhancements are cast through this "to-be-avoided-at-any-costs" lens. Fortunately for us, my evolution on the subject has been entombed for eternity on the internet. I dug through five years' worth of posts for this episode…and I share the equation that helped me determine "how much" creep is encouraged.

If the entire US economy were worth $1,000, a few of those dollars would be driven by music and movies. Of those few dollars, just three people (of whom one is imaginary) were at the helm in 2023, driving 30 cents of it on their own: Barbie, Beyoncé, and Taylor, who together generated around $10 billion in economic value last year.  But despite this strong showing, women's media is still consistently belittled. Author, culture commentator, and host of the popular Be There in Five podcast, Kate Kennedy joins me to unpack the ways society often delegitimizes women's interests, how pop culture shapes actual culture, and the (financial) power of women's storytelling.

Most of our listeners probably know they should be involved in the ~marital finances.~ But very few people, it seems, understand how signing a marriage contract legally changes their financial rights (I know I didn't back when I got married!). Whether you’re single and considering marriage one day, already happily married, or experiencing divorce, this episode is a must-listen. Content warning: This episode includes stories of intimate partner violence as well as financial abuse. This is not financial or legal advice—please do your own due diligence, as laws vary by state.

Rich Guy Gavin asks, "Is the 15-year mortgage worth it?" Plus, given how few people can afford them nowadays, Katie and Henah chat through if the 15-year mortgage is dead. We run the numbers, the factors to consider, and some workarounds to make the 30-year mortgage more appealing.

The Simple Path to Wealth by JL Collins is financial independence canon. The premise boils down to elegant simplicity: Spend 50% of your income and invest the other 50% in one specific index fund, VTSAX. We ask the Godfather of FI about it all—covering everything from his reliance on VTSAX and the American economy, to managing market crashes, to the debate over homeownership.

Low-wage work is more prevalent in the US than any other high-income nation—and we've essentially seen 50 years of stasis in anti-poverty efforts. After reading four different books about why the US has such a difficult time minimizing poverty despite having relative abundance, we deep dive into the main issues that keep the poor in place. We also talk about ways to solve for poverty, like readdressing policy, improving allocations for spending, and more.

An Austrian heiress made headlines when she announced she would let 50 strangers decide what to do with $27M USD of her inheritance. Katie and Henah discuss the potential impact of this kind of social experiment, how the lack of inheritance and estate taxes disproportionately support inequality, and why "generational stability" might be worth striving for more than "generational wealth."

The abuse of prescription drugs on college campuses has skyrocketed in the last 10 years—and by extension, so too has the intricate ecosystem of college-aged dealers and distribution networks. So today, we're covering a multimillion-dollar fraternity drug ring scandal at the College of Charleston with the investigative journalist, Max Marshall, who covered it in his book, Among the Bros. We talk about power, privilege, and the near-total lack of consequences in this story — and how it serves as a bit of an allegory for the real world. Need a primer on the various names involved in this story? Mikey Schmidt, the main drug plug for the fraternity with connections to cartels in Atlanta, and the contact for the fraternity's distribution networks and runners Rob Liljeberg, a former Eagle Scout who went on to become the president of the Kappa Alpha fraternity Zach Kligman, also known as the "Charleston Kingpin," who would help traffic the drugs into Charleston Patrick Moffly, a socialite, beloved party boy, and son of a big-time real estate developer and a Congressional candidate. Moffly helped create and sell the drugs sold through the fraternity. Transcripts, show notes, production credits, and more can be found at: https://moneywithkatie.com/fraternity-drug-ring.

I’m going out on a limb today to say: No, I don't think “high interest rates” are the problem in today’s housing market. The “high interest rate” might be a bit of a red herring.

Hey everyone! Just caught the latest episode of "The Money with Katie Show" and I have to say, it was incredibly insightful. Katie really knows how to break down complex financial topics into easy-to-understand nuggets of wisdom. In this episode, she tackled the importance of emergency funds and how to build one even on a tight budget. Her tips on cutting down unnecessary expenses were on point and I've already started implementing a few of them. https://500px.com/p/wax-paperie I've been following the show for a while now, and I must say, each episode brings something new and valuable to the table. Whether you're a financial newbie or someone looking to fine-tune their money management skills, Katie's show has got you covered. Plus, the guest interviews are always a treat – real stories from real people who've achieved financial success. https://dribbble.com/Wax-Paperie/about

I really enjoy the Money with Katie show, but I was disappointed that this show was so unnecessarily slanted towards women. From personal experience I can tell you that men need prenups at least as much as wonen.
