Taboo money topics: How to talk about student debt with your partner

Over a third of Americans say student loan debt is the most uncomfortable financial topic to discuss in social settings. But keeping your loved ones in the dark about your debt can lead to turmoil in your personal relationships. Nearly four in 10 student loan borrowers say that loans have affected their relationships with significant others, according to a recent study by the Teachers Insurance and Annuity Association of America (TIAA) and the MIT AgeLab. But there’s no reason to be ashamed of having student loans. Nearly 70% of students from the class of 2018 borrowed money to pay for school, according to the Federal Reserve. Cynthia Borges-O’Dell, a licensed marriage and family therapist from Modesto, California, says if you’re in an exclusive relationship, it helps to be candid about your student debt situation early on.

Here’s how to make that conversation easier and keep student debt from hurting your relationship.

Be transparent

“I think there is an embarrassment or a stigma attached to student loan debt because there’s an underlying fear that someone will not be able to accept it, or understand why one made the decision to acquire that kind of student debt, when there are other options,” says Borges-O’Dell. She recommends kicking off the conversation by explaining your initial reasons for choosing your college. Ask your partner if they have student debt too, and if so, what kind. Sharing personal financial information probably won’t cause a rift, she says. Being aware of your loved one’s loans, and making them aware of yours, can actually help you better understand each other and your priorities. And being open about money in general can establish a solid foundation for your relationship. “It’s perfectly fine to ask what kind of credit history they have and what their spending habits are,” too, she says. “Knowing this information about your partner will help them come up with a financial plan and set goals for the future.”

Decide what your roles will be

One of the most important decisions you make as a couple could be determining what your partner’s role is in your debt. Will they cheer you on as you pay it down? Are they willing or able to contribute in some way? What are the two of you comfortable with? Whatever you agree to do, make sure you set clear expectations early on: 36% of borrowers who currently contribute to their partner’s education report conflict as a result of unclear expectations about the amount, according to the TIAA and MIT AgeLab study. There’s no right or wrong way to go about handling your debt, and having the conversation will help you both come to a decision. It can also inform the approach you take to money generally as a couple. “I’ve seen people tackle it all kinds of ways, but usually couples will divvy their finances into ‘yours, mine, and ours’ buckets,” says Richard Kahler, a NAPFA registered financial advisor with Kahler Financial Group in Rapid City, South Dakota. Buckets allow for couples to contribute to a joint account in proportion to their individual incomes or to put in equal amounts. Though Kahler says many couples choose to tackle student debt together by putting all of their earnings into an “us” bucket, and paying off debt and other bills jointly, some couples opt for separate accounts and that’s fine, too.

Consider asking an expert

If you and your partner decide to tackle the debt together, Borges-O’Dell suggests seeking help from a certified financial planner (CFP) to ensure that you’re both on the same page about money. Clear, consistent communication helps couples manage finances and set expectations about how much of your combined monthly income will be put towards debt and other expenses. Borges-O’Dell says that meeting with a CFP and having regular check-ins with each other can help both parties come to a mutual agreement on a budget and a set of financial goals to help keep both partners accountable. “They need to sit down and schedule a time once a week or so to review their finances and to review where the money is going,” she says, so you’re making joint decisions.

Agree on your goals and how to pursue them

Student debt can be difficult to discuss in part because of the threat it poses to other priorities. Of the borrowers surveyed, 84% report that student loans are negatively affecting the amount they are able to save for retirement, for example. But student loans don’t have to hold you back, as an individual or as a couple. Though Kahler says that, in most cases, paying off student debt should be a high priority, your circumstances, like the amount of debt you have and the interest rates on your loans, matter. You may have the flexibility to prioritize saving for a mortgage, too, for example, or to start a family. And many experts encourage you to start putting aside at least a little for retirement as soon as you can, even if you’re paying off student loans at the same time, so that you can benefit from compounding. Start having the conversations with your partner early on so that you can figure out how to take care of your loans and how to think beyond them, too. Borges-O’Dell says that these productive conversations, and a stronger, more open relationship, begins with overcoming the fear of telling your partner about your student loan debt. “If you enjoyed what you did, if you got an outstanding education, then why be embarrassed about that?” she says. “There’s no doubt that debt is kind of a romantic buzzkill,” Kahler acknowledges. But dealing with debt can help you and your partner can learn to collaborate and compromise, skills that help couples thrive in all sorts of challenging situations, and it can end up bringing you closer.

Greenlanders welcome global attention, but there's no love lost for Trump

Authorities and residents in Greenland have branded President Donald Trump’s talk of buying the island “insulting” but have welcomed the global attention it has brought to a nation keen to establish its autonomy from Denmark.

Trump cancelled a state visit to Denmark after Danish Prime Minister Mette Frederiksen called his idea “absurd,” sparking a diplomatic spat between the two nations.

There are a range of geopolitical and economic factors at play behind Washington’s interest in the mostly ice-capped island, including its new shipping lanes and vast natural resources, including oil, titanium, nickel, copper, zinc, gold and lead.

Another key driver is China’s increased reach in the Arctic, having already secured significant Greenlandic infrastructure projects in direct conflict with the existing U.S. military presence in the country.

YouTube is hiring specialists to talk to conservative and progressive video makers

YouTube is seeking managers to maintain relationships with conservative and progressive political publishers.

The Google-owned company posted two job listings on its careers page three days ago for “Strategic Partner Manager” — one for conservative political publishers and one for progressive ones. It’s unclear how many new hires YouTube is seeking for each role or whether the jobs had been previously posted.

“One of the ways we work with top creators is by connecting them with a YouTube Partner Manager, ” a YouTube spokesperson said in a statement to CNBC. “We have experts for many of our content categories and are growing the partnerships team that works specifically with news creators — for both conservative and progressive news outlets. ”

Both job descriptions say the role will include initiating and managing partnerships with political publishers and “working to drive adoption and deeper understanding of YouTube.”

“At YouTube, we believe that everyone deserves to have a voice, and that the world is a better place when we listen, share, and build community through our stories,” the descriptions say.

The hiring search comes as YouTube faces increasing criticism from both sides of the political spectrum when it comes to how it moderates political content on its platform.

Earlier this week, LGBTQ YouTube creators filed a class-action complaint against the company claiming it discriminated against them by restricting their content and revenue opportunities and favoring content from right-wing stars. Meanwhile, conservative politicians such as Republican Sen. Ted Cruz of Texas and President Donald Trump have accused YouTube’s parent company of censoring conservative voices, although they provided no evidence of such censorship.

Google has said it does not censor political speech that doesn’t violate its policies.

YouTube came under fire for its handling of harassment against LGBTQ creators when Vox journalist Carlos Maza spoke out about harassment he experienced at the hands of a conservative YouTube host named Steven Crowder. Maza tweeted a compilation of Crowder’s attacks on his race and sexuality in May, setting off calls for YouTube to address the harassment.

YouTube appeared to flip-flop on its approach but is now working on a “creator-on-creator harassment” policy, its head of product, Neal Mohan, said at an event in July, according to The Verge.

For the strategic partner manager jobs, YouTube is seeking candidates with six years of relevant work experience in politics or conservative or progressive media. It says the ideal candidate should be “comfortable advising partners on YouTube channel development strategies and representing the political publisher landscape within the organization, ensuring we provide the right products and services to support our partners in reaching their goals.”

On LinkedIn, YouTube posted each job in at least two site locations, including one in Washington, D.C., and one in California, but notes in each listing that the role may also be located at a third site, in Playa Vista, California.

Correction: This article has been revised to correct the spelling of Neal Mohan’s name.

Talk money with your friends — it might just improve your finances

LaraBelova | E+ | Getty Images

For a taboo subject, a lot of people like talking about money. Like-minded friends are an obvious choice, but you can also find your community online. People join weight loss and exercise groups because they know it’s easier to stick to those goals when you have company. It also makes you accountable. If it’s just you, you can backslide pretty easily, because who’s going to know? Whether it’s in person or online, a community of peers can be a great way to sharpen your financial skills. Talking about money with people you know has pros and cons, says Nicholas Arreola, chief behavioral scientist and analytics officer at CLS Investments in Omaha, Nebraska. More from Invest in You:

You’ll probably regret that timeshare and car payments Venting to a friend can release bottled-up financial anxiety, says Arreola. It can also help you gain clarity and perspective. Arreola’s own generation — “dare I say the ‘M word’?” he said — is well known for its high levels of student loan debt. He took comfort in commiserating with close friends from college about the challenge. “I [can] end up walking away with tips and tricks for paying down this debt and feeling in control of it,” Arreola said. Just keep an eye out for sketchy information or people who filter their comments in order to preserve the relationship. “Put simply, your friends or family may hold back good advice that you need to hear — the cold hard truth — in order to avoid confrontation or conflict,” Arreola said.

Women and money

It’s not always as easy for women to find their community, though, says Alicia McElhaney, 25, a business reporter who lives in Brooklyn, New York. McElhaney started She Spends — a website and newsletter — to help women grow more comfortable with finance. “The goal is to get more women to use their financial power,” McElhaney said, “and we do have financial power.” As noted on the She Spends site, women make up nearly half the labor force and hold more advanced degrees than men. The site gives women and nonbinary people the tools to close the gaps in wages, investing and board seats. Interest in personal finance has been on the rise, with an accompanying spike in websites and experts on the subject. But McElhaney says it still takes more time to find information directed at women. Many personal finance or investing groups and websites are male-centric. “In some online circles, there isn’t a lot of conversation about the wage gap or why women might not be investing,” McElhaney said. And in some online forums, such as several financial independence, retire early (FIRE) communities, discussion of gender issues and the wage gap is banned, according to McElhaney.

P2P learning

If you’re a little afraid of the top experts, take heart. “When you hear, ‘I’m doing X-Y-Z with my finances and now I’m a millionaire!’ that really is intimidating,” said McElhaney. Learning from your peers or from people who look and talk like you — instead of lofty financial experts — has a lot to offer. The heart of McElhaney’s mission is in the She Spends Facebook group. “Talking to people who are one or two steps ahead of you, that can really help,” McElhaney said. Members tend to look after each other, McElhaney says, especially when they have similar goals. “Having someone check in is hugely helpful,” she said.

Group members exchange information and advice on budgeting software, investing in retirement accounts, index funds and exchange-traded funds and personal finance tracking apps. Jordan Kifer, 28, is delighted to be more of a financial resource to other women. “Talking about personal finance and education is a big gap that I think is in the process of being filled,” she said. “It’s nice to see women self-educating and passing [that knowledge] on.” A woman asked the group for advice on whether she should apply for a promising job. “I don’t have every single box checked,” she said. The group pressed her to apply, and she did. She got the job, a 10% higher salary than originally offered, as well as a better title than offered because the group encouraged her to negotiate.

'Hamilton' lyric propels MediaLink CEO into the ultimate power broker

As one of America’s key forces shaping the global entertainment industry, Michael Kassan is sought after worldwide by media moguls, Hollywood visionaries, technology pioneers, advertising holding company heads and Wall Street investors to help them solve their most complex business challenges. One of his guiding principles: Talk less. Listen more — a doctrine Kassan derived from the hit musical “Hamilton,” he said. “God gives you two ears and one mouth, which means you’re supposed to listen more than talk. And you know, at some point I can’t have a conversation like this without referring to my obsession with all things Hamilton. It’s kind of the advice Aaron Burr gave to Alexander Hamilton early on in the show and in the lyric ‘Talk less. Smile more.’ I would have edited that to say, ‘Talk less. Listen more.’ “But I understand the importance of smile more,” continued Kassan, who admitted seeing the play six times. “You know, I don’t agree with Aaron Burr’s advice, which is ‘Don’t ever share your opinion; keep it to yourself and just smile.’ I do think it’s important to share your opinion, certainly in our business, but it’s also critically important to listen.” This principle, among the many others the MediaLink founder, chairman and CEO steadfastly lives by, has propelled Kassan to the top of the marketing sector, a trusted advisor dubbed as the industry’s ultimate power broker.

Michael Kassan, founder, chairman and CEO of MediaLink Ethan Miller | Getty Images News | Getty Images

In 2003 Kassan launched his strategic advisory firm, known for its high-profile relationships with Cannes Lions and CES. It evolved, he said, around an intersection that was forming between marketing, media, advertising, entertainment and technology. “Those words kind of roll off my tongue,” he said in an interview with CNBC. “Because continually that’s how I’ve described MediaLinks’ position in the marketplace. … And I think one would argue it’s one of the most chaotic intersections that exist today. “We were fortunate to be able to bring some order to that chaos,” he said. To explain this, Kassan uses the analogy of a meeting going south. “If a meeting’s not necessarily going the way you’d like it to, or there’s a fork in the road or a speed bump you hit, sometimes it’s good to create some chaos over the right or left so that you can rethink and regroup and take the meeting where you want it to go,” he said. “Find the chaos, and if you can see the opportunity and find solutions or answer the questions, there’s a business opportunity there.”

Keeping pace with the industry

Like most industries, the media and advertising business is constantly transforming to entice new customers. Today, he said, people don’t want too many choices. He points to President Donald Trump’s 2016 presidential campaign as an example. “Think about our election three years ago, or two and a half years ago, as a skinny bundle,” he said. “What Donald Trump identified was the three or four issues that everybody wanted. You can see where I’m going. The three or four channels that everybody’s really watching were the five, not the 500. Focus on that and deliver your message directly to the consumer … not through the traditional gatekeepers. Thank you Twitter.”

God gives you two ears and one mouth, which means you’re supposed to listen more than talk. It’s kind of the advice Aaron Burr gave to Alexander Hamilton early on in the show and in the lyric ‘Talk less. Smile more.’ I would have edited that to say, ‘Talk less. Listen more.’ Michael Kassan MediaLink’s founder, chairman and CEO

‘Google is not a patriotic company,’ says co-founder of data-mining company Palantir

'Google is not a patriotic company,' says co-founder of data-mining company Palantir

Joe Lonsdale said on CNBC on Monday that his fellow Palantir co-founder Peter Thiel was “courageous” for speaking out against Alphabet’s Google.

“Google is not a patriotic company,” said Lonsdale, also a founding partner of technology investment firm 8VC.

Lonsdale was responding to the criticism levied since Thiel on Sunday said the FBI and the CIA should investigate whether Google has been infiltrated by Chinese intelligence.

Thiel, also a Facebook board member and a supporter of Donald Trump’s 2016 presidential campaign, was speaking at the National Conservatism Conference in Washington, D.C., and Axios reported on his speech.

“Everyone in [Silicon] Valley knows that the Chinese government is very involved,” Lonsdale told “Squawk Alley” in an interview, though he didn’t point to any clear evidence. “It’s something we don’t talk about a lot. It was very courageous of [Thiel] to talk about it.”

Google, responding to Thiel’s comments, said, “As we have said before, we do not work with the Chinese military.”

The environment at Google is very “academic,” Lonsdale said, where people want to share their work across the world. “There’s nationalists in China coming and taking whatever they can learn and taking it back and using it for their own nationalist purposes.”

Lonsdale also commented on Google’s contract with the Defense Department, which expired earlier this year and was not renewed. “When Google made the choice ‘we’re not going to help the U.S., but we’re going to continue to work in China,’ it was very clear,” Lonsdale said of the company’s patriotism.

Silicon Valley-based Palantir, the data analytics miner, has worked with many agencies of the U.S. government, including the Defense Department, CIA and FBI. Lonsdale on Monday called Palantir “probably the most patriotic in the Valley.”

Durant, Irving make Nets the talk of the town in New York

Kevin Durant #35 of the Golden State Warriors defends against LeBron James of the Cleveland Cavaliers in Game 2 of the 2018 NBA Finals at ORACLE Arena on June 3, 2018 in Oakland, California.

Just three seasons ago, the Brooklyn Nets were the worst team in the NBA.

On Sunday, they were the story of the league.

They agreed to deals with superstars Kevin Durant and Kyrie Irving as part of a sensational start to free agency, giving the longtime No. 2 team in New York top billing in the Big Apple.

They landed two of the top players available, both perennial All-Stars and NBA champions, and they weren’t finished. They also added center DeAndre Jordan, who played with Durant and Irving on the 2016 U.S. Olympic team that won the gold medal, and veteran swingman Garrett Temple.

It was such a powerful victory that the crosstown Knicks even put out a statement acknowledging their fans’ disappointment, just three hours after shopping season had started.

And it was even more remarkable given where the Nets were not long ago.

An ill-fated trade with Boston in 2013, when the Nets acquired Kevin Garnett and Paul Pierce in hopes of competing for a championship but didn’t even get out of the second round, cost them years of high draft picks and contributed to them becoming the worst team in the league.

They bottomed out at 20-62 in 2016-17, when Durant won NBA Finals MVP in his first season with Golden State after the Warriors beat Irving’s Cleveland Cavaliers for the title.

Now they will try to win one together.

They might have to wait a year, as Durant could miss next season while recovering from a ruptured Achilles tendon. But with Irving taking controls of the offence and a promising young core around him, the Nets should be a playoff team, even while Durant recovers.

The Nets got back to the playoffs last season after going 42-40, stamping themselves as a team on the rise. Brooklyn might be able to keep rising all the way to the top after Sunday’s moves.

Even after winning titles in his first two seasons with the Warriors, there was seasonlong speculation that Durant might leave. But much of that speculation had been focused on the Knicks, who had more than $70 million and the ability to sign two top free agents after trading Kristaps Porzingis during the season.

Right city, but wrong team.

The Nets felt confident with what they could offer, from their roster, to their medical staff, to their facilities. And when they made a cap-clearing trade last month, they became even more attractive by freeing up salary to bring in two stars.

Irving wasn’t expected to be one of them a few months ago, after he’d said last fall he planned to re-sign in Boston. But despite his good stats it was a bad season for him with the Celtics, who were considered an Eastern Conference favourite but instead lost in the second round.

Irving became frustrated and reconsidered his plans, deciding his future was not in Boston, but in Brooklyn. Now he’ll play for the team he watched while growing up in New Jersey, where the Nets played before moving to Barclays Center in 2012.

Even when the Nets had better teams, the Knicks still got more attention and it sometimes felt as if they would always be the marquee team in the city.

That changed Sunday in a New York minute.

The Nets were not only the talk of the town but of the whole league, and when the Knicks were shut out early on, they took the rare step of commenting about their situation.

“While we understand that some Knicks fans could be disappointed with tonight’s news, we continue to be upbeat and confident in our plans to rebuild the Knicks to compete for championships in the future, through the draft, targeted free agents and continuing to build around our core of young players,” Knicks President Steve Mills said in a statement.

The Knicks eventually agreed to deals with forwards Julius Randle, Taj Gibson and Bobby Portis, so they did get something.

Just nowhere near as much as the Nets.
