Dave Ramsey or Suze Orman?

The two biggest names in personal financial management are clearly Suze Orman and Dave Ramsey, and they have been for a long time.  Who is the ‘better’ of the two?  For the most part, I think both of them offer similar, sensible advice: pare down wants; manage needs; avoid debt; save for the future.  Where they differ is on the margins: Dave offers more tactical advice than Suze, while Suze also emphasizes broader considerations like long term healthcare and estate planning.

I enjoy listening to both, and for the core of people looking to improve their financial situations, you won’t go wrong with either.
