Have you always wanted to learn more about our economy works but felt intimidated? Fear not! The SPENT Book Club is here.
Every SPENT Book Club selection has been chosen by me and must abide by my cardinal rules: It must help you get smarter about the way money rules everything around us without needing to have paid attention in school and it must NOT be BORING.
I'm super-excited to offer listeners a chance to win a copy of my first selection:
I'm giving away four copies of Economix: How Our Economy Works (And Doesn't Work) in Words and Pictures by Michael Goodwin and David Bach. It's by far the best book I've ever read on how the U.S. economy works.
How did we get to where we are today? Let the power of cartoons explain the historical and philosophical foundations of our current economy and our current economic problems. Learn about what caused the Great Depression, what causes inflation, the economic minds that have shaped the way we spend and save from 1700-today.
After reading it, I immediately called Abrams Books and begged them for a few copies to give away.If you want to win a copy of Economix, here's what you need to do.
Follow the podcast on Facebook or Twitter. Tell me what financial issues are stressing you out this election year. Is it taxes? Cost of living? Worries that your job is going to disappear overseas? Whatever it is, I want to know so I can talk about it on a future episode.
That's it! Just tell me what about our economy is making you mad. If I choose your story, you'll receive a copy of Economix and your gripe with the economy will likely be a basis for an upcoming episode.
And if you don't win, I recommend picking up a copy anyway. It will be the smartest money you'll ever spend to learn more about, well, money.
