    Wondering the same thing. Keep hearing about NFTs but that seems like a crazy bubble to me. From my little research it seems like too much a gamble to 'invest' in anything outside of the top ten biggest ones unless you seriously do your research. But I hear about people getting insane returns from the smaller ones so that research can seriously pay off.

    Debt and investments. About a 50/50 split between those. I did qualify for all of it just waiting on the final one.

    There are many levels to explaining it but the simple way is yes, they do basically add money to the supply out of thin air when they do these stimulus packages, by both psychically printing money and adding to the tallies of total digital money, which in turn raises our national debt, which is borrowed from many places, like other countries for example.

    This dilutes the supply of US dollar in circulation, which definitely will cause some amount of inflation in the market because the more dollars out there, the less scarce and the more goods and services will cost. Simple supply and demand. But economists argue there are ways to 'ease' inflation with subsidies and other financial trickery.

    Some of it will work, at least temporarily. But there is no way around it, if you print trillions of new US dollars and add that to the current supply it will make the dollar weaker. Luckily its the world's currency standard and should remain so for a long time, so it's not insane to do. Basically we were forced to forego responsible economics because of a global economic catastrophe. Triage logic.

    Which banks have the best interest rates for savings accounts right now? I currently have Capital One that has a 0.4% interest rate. Seemed pretty good at the time but realistically the yield is pretty low. Are there any out there that are better than that right now?

    Seems slim. Hard to follow the way the veto would work and what could happen. I don't know. I do think they should up it. Would be nice if they could figure out exactly who needs it the most and send them $2000. That amount could help. $600 on the other hand doesn't even cover rent for almost anyone.

    Small business owners, unemployed, those under a certain income, etc. .. I don't need $2,000 but I'll certainly take it.

    I bundle auto and renters. Seems to save like $5-10/month. Minimal. Agree the best part here is one payment portal. Maybe if you expect expensive insurance on both sides you could save some money though.

    Second stimulus check update: Congress may vote on $1,200 payment. Here’s the latest.

    Maybe we will know by the 18th. Could be $1200 after all. Or $600. Or ya know, nothing. Roller coaster continues.

    How does the market feel about a Biden presidency? I know the stock market is largely built on confidence and expectations, and not necessarily reality sometimes. So I'm curious how Wall Street feels about Biden vs Trump. Do you think there will be a big difference, or is it more complicated than that?
