Finance Stuff

Most of my work in finance stems from my original purpose of educating those of my students who will go on to serve the public in their careers and face the economic consequences of those decisions.  That began my work on a class that turned into a book, Fundamentals of Personal Finance.  That spawned two more texts and many blog posts.  I think it is safe to assume that I am hooked on economics and finance, and the workings of the stock market are a splinter in my mind.


The OER Books

Fundamentals of Personal Finance:  A Guide for Helping Professionals

This is my OER guide to very basic concepts of personal finance and making your money work for you.

Fundamentals of Market Investing

This is my expanded text on the basics of market investing, and the pros and cons of different investing styles and strategies.  My idea was to present a wide variety of investing (and gambling) styles and leave the reader to decide which is best.

Fundamentals of Market Income

This is a future work, and I hope to get a version posted by the end of the summer for comments and criticism.


For my blog content, click on the “blog” menu link at the top of the page.  Those topics are rather random and tend to be based on market happenings and the opinions of those whom I admire (or whom I think are complete idiots).
