|About the Book|
Common Cents gives average Americans the fundamental knowledge they need to make smart decisions on family finances, investments, jobs, even health care and outsourcing. It brings into focus the hot-button economic, social, and political issues that dominate the front pages of newspapers--especially during this election season. You wont find get-rich-quick schemes or insider tips on the stock market here- instead, Dr. Nancy J. Kimelman addresses the most pressing questions of our time (such as oil and immigration) and shows you how to raise your economic IQ so you can enjoy a more comfortable, assured, and intelligent life. With her guidance, youll argue better, vote better, and--with your newfound financial security--even sleep better.
