THIS IS NOT A GET-RICH-QUICK guide to the financial world. You won’t find a short-term forecast for stock and bond returns. You won’t find us proclaiming that some single investment—real estate, cash-value life insurance, gold—will answer all of your financial prayers. Instead, this is a guide for folks who want to understand the financial world and get answers to common personal-finance questions.
Where to begin? You might start with the links below. First, get a quick handle on America’s economy, markets and personal finances. Then, ponder your own financial situation, beginning with what could be your most valuable asset: your human capital. Have a particular issue you want help with?
