Tim Mullaney: Brett Kavanaugh has saved almost nothing — so does he actually understand business?

Conservatives who want Supreme Court nominee Brett Kavanaugh to serve for a generation and move the law rightward have a new, perhaps unwanted, reason for confidence: The 53-year-old nominee is nowhere near retirement-ready financially.

Kavanaugh’s financial disclosure report was only noted in passing by legal eagles, but left personal-finance mavens scratching their heads. Already an appellate-court judge — with a Yale Law degree, no history of bad health or unemployment and a working spouse — he has $15,000 to $50,000 in the bank, no reported stock, bond or fund holdings, and a 401(k) retirement account held by his wife that holds less than $15,000.
