Citizens left uncomforted by city

I find that people generally fit into one of four general categories when it comes to making money decisions. I call this your “money personality."
All of us approach money from a point of view (or paradigm) that seems totally right to us, and many of our conflicts come when our point of view differs from someone else.

Bond market volatility is back. No, that’s not an oxymoron. But it is an understandable source of apprehension, and one that could tempt you to respond to short-term movements.
