MoneyGeek Resources

As MoneyGeek, we create original, useful content that helps people make sound financial decisions and navigate economic issues.

Our personal finance guides cover a wide range of topics to help people in all sorts of situations, from parents teaching kids about finance or managing financial aspects of caring for kids with special needs to people managing student debt or lost wages and tight budgets during the pandemic.

We also love data and making sense of economic trends that affect our daily lives. Our data geeks take deep dives into any large economic data set they can get their hands on. They make unique connections between data elements to shed light on the major economic issues of our times.

For example, Huffington Post covered our work on racial disparities in auto insurance rates.

Our analysis of job losses and recoveries by state in the pandemic shed light on the economic impact of COVID-19 on state economies and how control of the virus relates to economic indicators.

Our analysis on bankruptcies in the pandemic appeared in The Guardian.

In our data work, experts share valuable insights that help readers understand economic issues in new ways.
