Independently minded publishing

Edward Tower, Professor of Economics at Duke University

Students tell me that they crowd my ‘financial strategies’ course, which features Swedroe and Balaban’s Investment Mistakes Even Smart People Make, because they like practical down-to-earth advice, illustrated with stories. This new book will serve as the capstone in the course. Now I can teach about the many dimensions of retirement: such as spending down your assets in retirement, training your kids to spend and invest right, reckoning with the possibility of losing your marbles, and how to prevent elder abuse. I will be teaching a broader course and even inducing a few students to contemplate a career as a financial advisor. I have already passed the book on to my wife and kids. What a gift!
