S3 Episode 9: US/China power struggle, the global political balance, and your finances

Listen: “China's ability to grow in unprecedented fashion came because they had really cheap labor, and wealthy countries around the world were very happy to take advantage of that labor. Those two things are no longer true,” said Ian Bremmer, president of Eurasia Group and GZERO Media.

From the state of the great technological decoupling to China's zero-COVID policy, the relationship between the US and China remains both critically important and deeply fraught.

In this episode of “Living Beyond Borders,” a special podcast produced in partnership between GZERO and Citi Private Bank, we’re assessing where the two nations stand today, and what some recent developments like a Chinese banking crisis, knock on effects of Russia's war in Ukraine, and a renewed debate over tariffs mean for the world and for your money.

S2 Episode 1: What infrastructure spending means for you

Listen: There's a desperate need in the US to improve our infrastructure, much of which was built when the population was half the size it is today.

Episode 9: Can sustainable investing save our planet?

Listen: Benjamin Franklin famously called on American business leaders more than two centuries ago to "Do well by doing good."

Investing in diversity: How public companies can promote inclusivity

Betty Liu, Executive Vice Chairman for NYSE Group, provides her perspective:

What role does diversity play in investing?

So, diversity has played an increasingly important role in investing. In an earlier episode, I talked about ESG - that's environmental, social and governance - and ESG factoring more into investment decisions. Diversity is a key component of ESG. It's seen as crucial in looking at good governance and good decision making. So, a growing number of investors are looking at diversity as a metric to show whether or not this company is worthy to invest in.

Why You Should Save For Retirement Over Education: Money in 60 Seconds

Why You Should Save For Retirement Over Education: Money in 60 Seconds

What should be a bigger priority for me: saving for my children's education or saving for retirement?

This one hurts me. It hurts me to say this, because I've got children, and I really like 'em a lot. It's gotta be your retirement. I know that doesn't feel right as a parent, but if you have to make a choice, there are scholarships and there are loans for college. Nobody ever got a scholarship for retirement. And so this is one where you need to strap your oxygen mask on before assisting others, and — as much as it hurts me — to put yourself first.

The stock market's had a good year so far. Is now a good time to invest?

Yeah! Wow, what a difference. Remember December? I remember sitting, December 24th, when the market was down like 2.4 or 2.5% and it was just like [choking sound]. And it's up 16% since then. Now it feels like, gosh, maybe this isn't a good time to invest. But let's be perfectly clear: You have no idea. And anybody who says they have an idea has no idea. No one knows where the market is going from one week or one year to the next. There are just too many factors into it. So you want to — for those of you who are familiar with the term — dollar-cost average. For those of you who aren't, you want to invest through up markets and down, a bit out of every paycheck, sometimes it'll be lower, sometimes it'll be higher, and then it evens out over time which doesn't feel sexy, but actually is very sexy. It's very sexy in order to earn market returns, because most folks don't.
