“Financially Capable” by Matt Paradise 683 1024 Reader Views Kids
“Financially Capable: A Friendly Guide to Building Whole-Health Wealth” by Matt Paradise is a comprehensive and practical guide to personal money management. The first part of the book explains our current worldwide financial environment including issues with social equity. The second part covers the behavioral and psychological aspects of money to give us a better understanding of how we handle our finances like we do. One of the huge issues I see is that stress tends to make us more impulsive with our spending. Things are stressful right now, so there is a lot of impulse buying going on. I am guilty of this as well. The third part provides fundamental information about financial literacy. This includes topics about budgeting, saving, investing, debt management, identity theft and scams, credit scores, life insurance, home buying, and estate planning. read more
