The practical advice gleaned from thirty years of mentorship and mentoring, a lifetime of studying how people make money, how they lose it, and what it takes to come out ahead. THE ALGEBRA OF WEALTH will be quintessential Scott: provocative, insightful, rooted in data and science, but also profane and profound in equal measure.
THE ALGEBRA OF WEALTH will build on the fundamental principles of personal finance to account for the challenges facing today’s young (and not so young) readers. The world of work is changing around us, and young people face very different career challenges than those entering the workforce decades ago. There are new and seductive spending pitfalls, from the ever-expanding array of streaming services to Buy Now Pay Later options, all of which prey on the unsophisticated. The investment marketplace now tempts us 24/7 with crypto, zero commission stock trades, and virtual banks. Even the very notion of “retirement,” the final boss of every personal finance book, is undergoing a profound rethink, as our lifespans extend and our relationship with work evolves.
