On this the final episode of 2016, financial elder abuse experts Shawna Reeves and Neil Granger join Joe Creitz and Sid Singh to talk about some of the ways that reverse mortgages, annuities, and other sneaky financial products are deceptively marketed to the elderly to bilk them out of their money. Sid and Joe also talk about the unanimous Samsung v. Apple decision from the Supreme Court this week, and contemplate the question "is a rectangle with rounded corners worth $399 Million?" We also talk about the Supreme Court's unanimous insider trading decision, and the idea that givers as well as recipients benefit from gifts. All that, plus listener questions, Hawaiian rum, and whether or not we can file a class action lawsuit against Russia for hurting all of our feelings. Check it out, have a great New Year, and keep it legal!
