The Psychology of Money With Jean Chatzky and Charles Duhigg

Gain better insight into your money patterns

It’s time to stop repeating the same money mistakes. Join AARP financial ambassador Jean Chatzky and special guest Charles Duhigg to examine the choices we make and why we make them, how emotion can sometimes point you in the wrong direction and how to navigate the things we can’t control. You’ll emerge with a keener understanding of your own money patterns and how to adopt good habits that stick!
