The current economic strain has some people tapping into their 401(k) nest eggs to pay bills and buy groceries. But is that any way to manage your retirement fund? Author and economist Julianne Malveaux joins NPR's Tony Cox to talk about money management and sky-rocketing oil prices.

Malveaux is the president of Bennett College.
