I Met With A Financial Therapist — Here’s What I Learned

While the topics my therapist and I discuss run the gamut — family dynamics, trauma, relationships — there is one particular topic that we’ve never really breached: Finances. While financial discussions aren’t exactly what comes to mind when you think of a therapy session, the fact is: Money isn’t just about numbers — it’s a deeply emotional thing.

Colorado became the first state to cap the monthly cost of insulin at $100. Here’s why the life-saving drug is so expensive.

Due to drastic price increases, many diabetics are struggling to afford the lifesaving drug. In the past 15 years, insulin prices have tripled. There are only three manufacturers who make insulin and decide the price for insulin — their prices have risen at the same rates. The insulin supply chain, like other pharmaceutical medications, is extremely complicated and opaque, so the consumer cannot see where prices get set and where they change throughout the supply chain.

How Chick-fil-A uses 5 steps to decide what items — from spicy chicken to brownies — to add to the menu

Chick-fil-A has a five step process for rolling out new menu items.

Potentially, these “destinations” could be used as locations for in-space research and manufacturing to turn a profit. But such a commercial utopia in orbit won’t be easy until the cost of launching to space comes down, says NASA.
