Additional Product Information:
Decisions students make today can affect not only their life now but have an impact on their future. If students make wise financial decisions, life can become a more joyous experience. While there are no guarantees there won’t be hardships ahead, the material in the 14th edition of Personal Finance can provide you with the information needed to weather a pandemic, an unexpected job loss, or the next crisis. Personal Finance was written with one purpose: To provide the information you need to make informed decisions that can literally change your life. This edition is packed with new and updated information and examples to help students plan for the future and achieve financial security. For example, we have revised important topics like taxes, banking services, college loans, health care, investments, and retirement planning. In addition, our new features personal FinTech and digital financial literacy are both designed to help you use technology to improve financial decision-making.
