So, what should you know about this "new retirement"? And how can you prepare for it?

For starters, consider what it means to be a retiree today. The 2020 Edward Jones/Age Wave Four Pillars of the New Retirement study has identified these four interrelated, key ingredients, along with the connected statistics, for living well in the new

By Stephen Dravis, iBerkshires Staff
04:52PM / Saturday, August 08, 2020
WILLIAMSTOWN, Mass. — The commonwealth's commissioner of education may be overselling the grassroots desire to return to in-person instruction in comments he made earlier this week.   On Tuesday, Commissioner Jeffrey Riley told the Greater Boston Chamber of Commerce that a "vast majority" of Massachusetts school superintendents favor hybrid or in-person models of instruction.   The remark was reported by the State House News Service consortium and Commonwealth Magazine, a Boston-based non-profit.   Riley appeared to be basing that comment on the initial plans districts were required to submit to the Department of Elementary and Secondary

@theMarket: The Economy Versus the Stock Market
By Bill Schmick,
03:57PM / Friday, August 07, 2020
It is a tale of two markets. One represented by stocks, which has experienced a "V" shaped recovery, while the other (the economy) appears to be describing a "W."
