All the Personal Finance Advice You’ll Ever Need…On a Single Index Card

created at: 09/23/2013

After spending some time interviewing Helaine Olen, author of Pound Foolish, Harold Pollack distilled her thoughts – basically, a summary of the entire self-help personal finance industry – into a short series of maxims, all of which are available for free from your local library. And the whole thing fits on a single index card.    

As Olen notes, “This stuff is pretty basic. The financial services industry merely makes it sounds complicated so that you’ll turn to them for advice.”
