Financial Topics Millennials and Boomers Need to Discuss  this Holiday Season
Given the current state of politics in America, the holidays will no doubt result in some uncomfortable, if not downright contentious conversations between millennials and their boomer parents at the holiday dinner table.

There’s no doubt that’s it’s a lot more exciting to watch a lob being slammed down by the likes of All-Star forward Blake Griffin or DeAndre Jordan than a perfectly executed back door pass.However, basketball purists appreciat...
