The author's nine choices revolve around his core concept of human capital and how it must be gradually converted to financial capital to achieve a successful retirement."

-Jonathan Chevreau, National Post Columnist and Author of Findependence Day

"Your Money Milestones helps just about anyone see life's most important money decisions in a fresh and completely rational light. If you want a smart, practical roadmap to a financially sound future, you need this book."

-Eric Schurenberg, Editor-in-Chief, BNET

Your Money Milestones illustrates how four principles inspired by basic arithmetic can be applied to manage the most important financial decisions (money milestones) people face over their entire financial lifecycles.


Addition: Identify the true value all of your financial resources.Subtraction: Budget for the hidden liabilities in your future.Division: Spend your total resources evenly over time.Multiplication: Prepare for many alternative and unexpected universes.


This book offers a complete framework for thinking about money that's every bit as provocative as Freakonomics. Drawing on the newest research into psychology and personal finance, Milevsky helps you identify the true value all of your resources; budget for hidden liabilities in your future; plan to spend your total resources smoothly over time; and prepare for unexpected events that could upend even the most careful planning. You'll discover why children are short-term investment liabilities but may be long-term pension assets, why winning the lottery may increase your chances of going bankrupt, and why giving up control of your retirement nest egg might actually make you happier. The insights are fascinating and useful throughout your life whether you're deciding what to study, contemplating your first home purchase, deciding whether to keep contributing to your 401(k), or considering when and whether to retire.
