a new forum

Tomorrow I'll be cross-posting here and at a supremely useful new site, The Economical Academic, a space for grad students and recovering grad students to discuss financial matters. I'll be posting on the boring, but potentially useful, topic of paying (and reducing) taxes on stipend income (or non-W-2 income more generally). Thanks to psychgirl and ecogeofemme for inviting me! And thanks also to k8, whose post on TEA directed me there in the first place.

Thanks for the shout out!

The economics of grad school and post-grad school is something I really care about. I think that too many grad students don't know much about personal finance (and, to be honest, if I hadn't taken time off before returning to school and had to learn about such things, I know I wouldn't either). Add to the this the fact that we aren't paid well and disaster can ensue.

I totally agree, and would add the fact that our health care plans are often, shall we say, not tops, to the list of reasons why it's good to have a financial plan.
