How Emotions Confuse Out Money Choices And What To Do About It
Crazy About Money uses real and composite cases drawn from the author’s 30 years of psychology practice. Readers learn about Mary, who has a basement full of Internet purchases she made to get even with her seemingly indifferent husband. And about Harry, an 89-year-old multi-millionaire bachelor who nearly decided to move into a state assisted living facility for fear he would run out of money. Readers also meet others who, like themselves, over-spend, under-save and make poor investment decisions.
