The world of personal finance appears highly complex, and we often willingly delegate control of this area of our lives to others, sometimes to total strangers. Using an entertaining, hands-on approach, this course demystifies that world and helps us to participate actively and wisely in shaping our own financial destiny. In this course, students will identify their financial goals and plan a strategy to achieve them. We will meet the apocalyptic Four Horsemen of Financial Planning—taxes (including the most recent tax changes), inflation, risk, and administrative costs—and see what mischief each causes and how to minimize their impact. Then, we will venture into the financial markets and learn about investing in stocks and mutual funds. The course will provide an update on any significant personal tax legislation that has been enacted in 2022.
