Live Better, Spend Less, and Save More - Spending and Saving: How to Get Credit and Your Money to Work for You is about what works for real people in the real world. Too much of the financial advice available today is simply not workable for most people in the real world. I have included in this book what I have found works for people, and left out what I have found does not work for people. For example, you will not see a budget in this book. A budget is one of the most common items of financial advice. Use a budget you are told. The problem is most people cannot sustain the use of a budget for any length of time. In public speaking, I ask people how many of them use a budget. The number of people using a budget is small. Why? Because a budget is about limiting spending and most people do not like the limiting concept. Instead I have developed tools that are not based on limitation. My tools are focused on getting you what you want and less of what you do not want.

Making Sense of Social Security Reform

The Social Security Act of 1935 must be counted among the most monumental pieces of legislation ever passed by Congress. Today, sixty-five years after its enactment, public support for Social Security remains extremely strong. At the same time, there have been reports that Social Security is in grave danger of financial collapse, and numerous groups across the political spectrum have agitated for its reform. The president has put forward proposals to rescue Social Security, conservatives argue for its privatization, and liberals advocate increases in its funding from surplus tax revenues. But what is the average person to make of all this? How many Americans know where the money for Social Security benefits really comes from, or who wins and loses from the system's overall operations? Few people understand the current Social Security system in even its broadest outlines. And yet Social Security reform is ranked among the most important social issues of our time. With Making Sense of Social Security Reform, Daniel Shaviro makes an important contribution to the public understanding of the issues involved in reforming Social Security. His book clearly and straightforwardly describes the current system and the pressures that have been brought to bear upon it, before dissecting and evaluating the various reform proposals. Accessible to anyone who has an interest in the issue, Shaviro's new work is unique in offering a balanced, nonpartisan account.
