Financial Advice in Italian

Providing someone financial advice in Italian is not particularly helpful when the recipient of the advice doesn't speak the language.  As explained in the video, a purely rational discussion about finances does not resonate with someone whose behavior is motivated, in whole or in part, by emotions.  We need to recognize that financial decisions often have an emotional as well as logical component.  It's necessary to find a common language in order to come to an understanding on financial matters.

Musical Treat

Listen to one of my favorites, Crowded House.  The song "Weather with You" references Julius Caesar and the Roman Empire.  You can also listen to "Italian Plastic" in the live or studio version.
