The national bestseller that helps you turn common sense into money in the bank―now updated with 10 new rules to live by Gail Vaz-Oxlade likes to say that managing money isn’t rocket science, it’s discipline. But even she acknowledges that there are tricks to her trade and that making money decisions often feels more complicated than it needs to be. So, where do you start? With Gail’s Money Rules, of course―her essential rules for making your money work for you.
Covering every topic under the financial sun―from TFSAs to taxes, borrowing to breaking bad habits, relationships to RRSPs―Gail will show you that many of the rules you may have been following might actually be working against your best interests. Some of her advice is, as she says, common sense (Rule #17: Needs Must Come Before Wants), some of it is surprising (Rule #222: Don’t Borrow to Contribute to an RRSP) and some may even seem counterintuitive coming from Gail (Rule #261: Take Pleasure from Your Money). New to this edition are rules that will help you maximize the return on your savings, get your head straight about what renovations really mean for your bottom line, and calculate your burn rate. All of the rules are divided into digestible pieces that give you a clear sense of what works and what doesn’t―and how to start incorporating her advice into your life today.
For money-phobes, this book will be a kick in the pants; for money minders, it will ease the worry that they’ve left a stone unturned; for everyone, Money Rules reveals what it takes to build a financial foundation that will last a lifetime.
A New York Times Bestseller The leading thinker and most visible public advocate of modern monetary theory — the freshest and most important idea about economics in decades — delivers a radically different, bold, new understanding for how to build a just and prosperous society. Stephanie Kelton’s brilliant exploration of modern monetary theory (MMT) dramatically changes our understanding of how we can best deal with crucial issues ranging from poverty and inequality to creating jobs, expanding health care coverage, climate change, and building resilient infrastructure. Any ambitious proposal, however, inevitably runs into the buzz saw of how to find the money to pay for it, rooted in myths about deficits that are hobbling us as a country. Kelton busts through the myths that prevent us from taking action: that the federal government should budget like a household, that deficits will harm the next generation, crowd out private investment, and undermine long-term growth, and that entitlements are propelling us toward a grave fiscal crisis. MMT, as Kelton shows, shifts the terrain from narrow budgetary questions to one of broader economic and social benefits. With its important new ways of understanding money, taxes, and the critical role of deficit spending, MMT redefines how to responsibly use our resources so that we can maximize our potential as a society. MMT gives us the power to imagine a new politics and a new economy and move from a narrative of scarcity to one of opportunity.
