THE PLOT THUS FAR
Suze Orman knows that everyone has financial issues and problems. In this new television special, she sharply focuses on helping individuals find financial solutions that fit their situation. As always, her advice is based not just on numbers, but grounded in a critical understanding of people and their emotional needs.
The special’s central theme is that financial decision making should be guided by an understanding of “the goal of money,” which Suze perceptively defines as “to make you feel secure.” Financial solutions should work to fulfill that goal.
In the program, Suze insightfully covers a wide range of topics that will resonate with viewers, including how to invest; whether to buy a home or not; saving for retirement; life insurance; wills and trusts; student loans; and more.
Suze Orman has been called “a force in the world of personal finance” and a “one-woman financial advice powerhouse” by USA Today. A two-time Emmy® Award-winning television host, New York Times mega bestselling author, and one of the top motivational speakers in the world today, Orman is undeniably America’s most recognized expert on personal finance.
WHAT WE THOUGHT
“Financial Solutions for You” is Suze Orman’s latest TV special to teach Americans how to be fiscally responsible. Much like Prometheus trying to bring fire to the mortals, this won’t end well. I appreciate Orman’s push to create understanding rather than mathematic sense for people. Too often, the numbers just confuse the hell out of people as they sink further in depth. They need an expert to set them down and say what isn’t working.
Orman has a way of relaying the security principle to people. Everyone feels like they have to hit certain security goals, but it won’t happen until they know what they need it. When do you need a house, a student loan or to save for retirement? More importantly is the question of why. Suze Orman isn’t some old lady yelling at you, she wants you to be better to improve the overall economy.
The DVD comes with an extended audience Q&A and featurette as the special features. The A/V Quality is sharp for a PBS release. The transfer is pretty standard. The same for the Dolby track. In the end, I’d recommend a purchase.
