My friend Ric Edelman, the personal financial advisor, is always one of the calmest, most rational people I know whenever the country dips into an economic crisis.

That’s why he joined me this morning on WLS/Chicago to talk about what you should do in light of the turmoil on Wall Street this week, and it’s why you should set your DVR to record C-SPAN Saturday morning from 9 to 11am CT, as they simulcast Ric’s WMAL/Washington radio show (rebroadcast on WLS Sunday morning at 10 and on other stations nationwide throughout the weekend).

If you haven’t read Ric’s books, “The Truth About Money” and “The Lies About Money,” you’re missing some essential financial information.
