Beschreibung

Money management can be intimidating. Fortunately, most of us only need to know a few basic principles to get our financial houses in order. Learn these principles in this comprehensive overview of what everyday people need to know to make good financial decisions. Using a scientific, evidence-based approach, Professor Finke shows how humans are hard-wired to make emotional decisions that often run counter to the best course of action when it comes to finances - and gives tips for how to avoid these common mistakes.
The goal of money management is to maximize our happiness at every stage of our lives. Whether you are a novice investor or a seasoned pro, starting your first job or contemplating retirement, these 24 straightforward lectures are an excellent primer for making successful financial decisions at every stage of your life. Professor Finke takes you on a tour of some of the most widely available financial products and tools, from mutual funds to life insurance to college savings accounts, and he offers evidence-based guidance for building a financial strategy.
After reviewing the psychology of decision-making - and how our instincts often steer us wrong when it comes to loss aversion, risk tolerance, and information overload - Professor Finke explains the "life cycle theory" of financial planning. This eye-opening theory offers a framework for making financial decisions based on the different stages of your life, and it will give you an entirely new perspective on money management. The goal is simple: to get the most out of your money across time.
While everyone's life is different, the information and sound advice in this course will empower you to create your own financial plan to reach your goals. From setting financial goals and managing debt responsibly to investing in home ownership and preparing for retirement, Professor Finke provides a worry-free approach to handling all aspects of your financial life.

Hörerrezensionen

Hilfreichste

Hilfreiches Hörbuch - wenn man in Amerika lebt

Man erhält viel Daten und Prozente die wohl nur für den amerikanischen Markt nützlich sind.
Allerdings erhält man auch einen Einblick in die Betrachtung finanzieller Entscheidungen im Laufe eines Lebens unter Berücksichtigung der Lifecycle Theorie. Daraus kann man doch noch einen guten Nutzen hieraus ziehen.
Für Anfänger in englischer bzw. amerikanischer Wirtschaftsterminologie nur bedingt geeignet da der Author nicht viele Begriffe explizit erklärt.

Der Sprecher ist sehr angenehm, wenn auch nicht mitreißend (was man bei dieser Thematik wohl erwarten kann und soll - es geht um rationale Entscheidungen!).
Empfehlung:
Ja, falls man finanzielle Planung unter Berücksichtigung einer Theorie näher kennen lernen will.
Ansonsten nein.
