The dark side of Buy Now Pay Later apps

***Correction: As pointed out by the (great) blog “Michael James on Money”, I should have factored in that the BNPL company collects a riskless $25 payment upfront. So really, they lent out $69 over 6 weeks. That increases the effective APR on their loan from 55% to 76%.

I’ve hosted a personal finance TV show on the Oprah Winfrey Network, used to be a stockbroker, went to school to become a racecar driver (failed), founded a fintech company that provides financial planning software to financial advisors who want to help more people who don’t have lots of money, and I consult with wealth management companies on commercializing applications of behavioral economics/finance. I’m also quite fond of donuts.
