About the book
There are many facets to consider when thinking about personal finance, but all are fundamentally concerned with understanding what is the best way to allocate assets in different conditions over time. For example, what is the difference between a bull and bear market and why does it matter? In this course, we will explore different investment markets, options for credit, different retirement plans, taxes, and business ethics. We also cover special topics, which include the Federal Reserve, insurance, bitcoins, and bankruptcy.
