What an amazing Hangout this is going to be! Money is such a trigger point for relationships and businesses, it will be interesting to see a professionals 'take' on what makes money that way. I've had numerous conversations on +The BeanCast about using alternate/digital currencies like +Bitcoin and even mobile payment solutions like +Google Wallet and +PayPal. Understanding why we spend differently with 'money in our hand' will be enlightening!

I'm extra excited because my dear friend Christine is going to be a guest on the show.


From +Christine Cavalier : TOMORROW, Thursday September 26, 2013, I'll be a guest in a hangout with Behavioral Economics pioneer +Dan Ariely, author of Predictably Irrational, The Upside of Irrationality and The Honest Truth About Dishonesty. I'm 1 of 5 participants who will be chatting with Dr. Ariely about the mystique of paper money vs. the dreaded credit card. Come join us at 2 pm EST on Hangouts on Air.
