The economy, and how to work with your money, doesn’t need to be a mystery. Although it can inevitably get complicated, the basic concepts are actually deceptively simple: Spend less than you earn,
don’t live above your means, be allergic to debt, only invest what you are willing to lose, saving a little consistently can go a very long way, etc. That is what this edition is about – to help empower you to leave
school or enter a career or start a family with the confidence that you know enough about the economy
and personal finance to not make unnecessary or costly mistakes. Read fulltext pdf or access individual articles.
