You've likely picked up on a theme for the first hour today... Money. The past week's been so full of bad, or lukewarm news about the economy it's hard not to think, at least a little, about your cash flow. And when it comes to reconsidering your assets, the first place you probably look is at your investments. Should you tap into that 401K at work to pay off a credit card? Is now a good time to sell... Or buy? Is there any way to cash in on the falling dollar? I have questions, and you likely have questions too, so we've called on David Gardner over at the Motley Fool to help us out. And of course, it's been just over a year now since Neal launched his fantasy portfolio, and we'll get a year-end review. Got money questions for the Fool? Let us know.
