Every decision, from buying a home to grabbing a daily
latte, has costs and benefits-personal as well as financial.
The Real Cost of Living helps you make better
decisions, both big and small- decisions that involve money,
but aren't all about money. Well-known personal finance
expert Carmen Wong Ulrich makes personal finance personal
and takes into account that we all have motivations that go
way beyond number crunching. From marriage and family to
career, investing, and more, Carmen examines the "real cost"
of the choices we all make every day.
• Is deciding
whether to go back to work full-time after you have a child
really all about money? Should it be?
• Is prepaying
a mortgage a smart-money move, or is it really about craving
security and stability-and which means more to you?
How much do your bad habits really cost you? And is saving
thousands of dollars enough of a motivation to get you to
• Are college degrees really worthwhile? And if
so, how can you maximize the odds of gaining all the
benefits of a degree, both personally and financially?
• Is becoming your own boss the answer to your career
malaise? Can you handle the costs?
The Real Cost
of Living is a rare melding of personal psychology and
personal finance at an important time when we have
discovered that having more money may not bring more
happiness, but knowing what really will make you happy can
be worth any cost.
