#3 Broke Millennial: Stop Scraping By and Get Your Financial Life Together by Erin Lowry

 

Broke Millennial: Stop Scraping By and Get Your Financial Life Together by Erin Lowry
Broke Millennial: Stop Scraping By and Get Your Financial Life Together by Erin Lowry

Book recommendation by David Reischer, Esq. from LegalAdvice.com

This is a humorous but also informative book about money matters specifically written for the Millennial generation. The book gives practical advice for young people on how to have a healthy relationship with money but through real everyday examples and helpful tips on how to manage money. The book does belabor old tired tropes like ‘debt is bad’ and ‘do not overspend’ but rather provides situational stories and examples of how we should relate to money in a healthy way with family, friends and our social circle. I highly recommend this book.

#6 The Little Book of Common Sense Investing by John C. Bogle

 

The Little Book of Common Sense Investing by John C. Bogle
The Little Book of Common Sense Investing by John C. Bogle

Book recommendation by Nicolas Straut from Fundera

In the The Little Book of Common Sense Investing, John Bogle effectively argues that it’s far too difficult for the average investor to consistently pick individual stock winners and for this reason, investors should invest in the stock market itself by investing in the S&P 500 or Total Stock Market index funds. By investing in these index funds, investors will earn average returns and avoid the concentrated risk of individual stocks.

#7 No One Can Escape the 4 Laws by Eloy Rodrigo Colombo

 

No One Can Escape the 4 Laws by Eloy Rodrigo Colombo
No One Can Escape the 4 Laws by Eloy Rodrigo Colombo

Book recommendation by Eloy Rodrigo Colombo

“This book by Eloy R. Colombo is about the, forgotten, 4 main laws of economics, discovered by León Walras around the year 1860.

Those laws rule every relationship between all of us and all that resulted from these relationships, include the financial market.

In the book, using the 4 laws of economics, the author “”built”” the entire economy, piece by piece, including the crucial explanation about what money really is to be possible to explain how the financial market works.

With the 4 laws as background, the author can show that the “money’s price” and the inflation rate drive the financial assets price behavior and, that they have the power to put a limit on the assets price.

This book is a breakthrough in financial markets behavior understanding.”

The same values, priorities, and habits that preserve wealth can also contribute to accumulating it, as well as living a richer life in the process. Popular and timeless for a reason.
