Today on Daily Interest, we’re giving away money, offering (and ignoring) advice, then maybe asking our mothers for some money. I’m guessing they’ll just give us more advice though. It’s good advice, I think.

  • Apparently just giving people money can in fact help them be less poor. At least, in some circumstances, such as a one-time payment to deeply impoverished young Ugandans who plan to use it to learn a trade or start a business. Does that change your thoughts about charitable giving? 
  • The Pew Research Center released a report yesterday noting that nearly 40% of mothers are now the sole or primary breadwinner for their families. That’s a huge increase from just ten or twenty years ago. Does this changing dynamic affect your life or life plans? Think about it.
