Do you speak money? You should. It is the world's most important
language. It's spoken everywhere. Speaking-or at least
understanding-this language allows you to follow the real
conversations in politics, business, and at work. Understanding
money and speaking the language fluently is critical to preparing
for a comfortable retirement, building a small business, planning
for college and a career for your children. Everyone speaks it
differently, with different dialects. Some are riskier than others.
Some want to save their money; others want to see it grow. There is
no one accent, but understanding the differences will make couples,
business partners, and coworkers happier-and wealthier. Authors and
CNN financial experts Ali Velshi and Christine Romans speak the
global language of money and translate it every day for hundreds of
thousands of viewers. And they are here to teach you, too. It's
easier to learn than you might think.
Speaking money affects every area of your life. It's more than
simply your savings or the investments you may have. It involves
the way you think about money, the way you teach your children
about it, and the way you were taught about it yourself. It's about
the way you spend it, save it, invest it, use it, need it and want
it. The book will:
- Shed light on the male and female spending and investing
- Discuss emerging international economies
- Weigh the financial hurdle of student debt culminating in a
- Explain how to budget wisely and build wealth
- Show how to plan appropriately for retirement
