The right choices in risky times. Jane Bryant Quinn knows how to find them, as readers of her personal finance columns--in Newsweek, Woman's Day and newspapers nationwide--can confirm. She's smart, doesn't skirt the tough questions, and doesn't bore you to death with complicated theories or formulas. She steers you away from financial schemes that promise you the moon. But she's not timid about investing. She urges you to take intelligent action, to seize opportunities in both good times and bad.
In Making the Most of Your Money, Quinn does on paper what good financial planners should do in person. She guides you toward organizing your financial life--without fuss or pain and in a way that is right for you. She shows you how to set sensible goals; critiques the expanding range of financial products (what's good and what's bad in mutual fnnds, stocks, bonds, real estate, fixed-income savings, and Wall Street's dubious exotica); and offers common-sense advice in all areas of personal finance-borrowing, saving, insuring, investing, and much more. Making the Most of Your Money tells you exactly what you need to know to stay on top of a changing economy.
Quinn's particular strength is to take you beyond the outworn assumptions of the past 20 years, to lay out the new money strategies that will dominate the 1990s. From this book you learn how to compensate for the downturn in incomes and property values; how to borrow intelligently in an era when loans are harder to get; how to earn more money by making wise investment choices; how to prepare for a future where Social Security won't be worth as much as it is right now. Here, you'll find all of her personal systems for balancing safety with prudent risk, explained in her clear and witty prose.
From building financial safety nets to choosing the right mortgage, from finding a better credit card to planning for college and retirement, Quinn shows you what works--and what doesn't. Families, couples, singles--in fact, all Americans who want to handle their money better--will find Making the Most of Your Money the single best financial guide to the decade ahead.
