Ted Hunter, “Why I Wrote Money Smart”
In the years since 2007 when the national financial devastation came to light, the so-called financial experts haven’t said a word about why they didn’t warn people. They didn’t tell people not to borrow against their home’s temporarily inflated value or to stop buying badly overpriced stocks. They didn’t suggest planning for change but stuck to their standard advice—to just go right on doing the very things that got us into trouble in the first place.
I’ve watched in dismay as millions of people who believed in the established financial system saw their dreams for financial independence vaporize in a sea of financial mismanagement. I saw, with great clarity, the depth of the myths, and, in some cases, the outright lies that had been told about money and the damage they had done. Worst of all, I realized that all of this would just continue to happen unless something was done, and so I decided to do something about it.
It’s time for a better approach to personal money management. Money Smart provides that approach with time-tested advice and a complete set of tools to manage your money and create financial freedom.
