Mr. Maze explains the history of money, what the Federal Reserve Bank is, and how America is set up to fail. If we all lived by the "70, 20, 10" rule which is clearly explained in the book, we could possibly get out of debt and live a wealthy life. However before we can maintain our wealth, we need to learn how to maintain our money.
The book has easy to understand step by step instructions on how to save as well as how to invest money for a greater buying power. I was a little shocked to see some of the investment suggestions as well as those not to invest in. I found the description, purpose, pros and cons of each very informative and easy to understand.
Mr. Maze also hit on a subject that I already believed and that is the "dumbing down" of Americans. Knowledge is priceless and through knowledge we, as well as our children (and their children) can learn to play the financial game by our own rules. The economic state of this country is only getting worse and the importance of teaching children at an early age is crucial for them to live debt free lives. Mr. Maze mentions an age to start of 8 or 9 however I feel children should be brought up with it as a way of life from birth. I don't feel it should be something that is introduced to them at the age of 8 or 9 like a new food to taste and see if they like it. At that age children are already set in their ways and they already know if they don't like it which means they may not willing to taste it again.
I highly recommend this book for old and young alike. The author says it best, "Being successful is living comfortably and prospering." If we all followed the steps outlined for us, we will prosper.
I feel the author in this book is extending a very emotional plea for all people to take on their personal responsibility of learning about the basic elements of finances. He gives information regarding how currency and it's value system was implemented for America. Precious metals such as gold and silver played a huge part in American history. Wars have been fought and nations have failed when the finances were not balanced with the regulation of the currency. If the economic condition of a nation is allowed to deteriorate to the point of a nationwide depression, the result affects all the people from the rich down through the ranks of the poor. Political elections are won or lost many times based upon the financial support of a particular candidate. Money is power.
The book highlights the abuse of credit, credit cards for students, and the dependency of credit becoming an accepted way of life. The credit card accessibility and dependency of college students is disturbing. The author issues a warning about how the use of credit results in establishing debt. He cautions and urges the reader to consider the need or priority of purchases. A marketing ploy to be aware of is paying for services or items which are really not necessary and it is in the form of companies bundling services and bundling accessories you made not need for technical devices.
The author advises to avoid the use of credit cards, then plan or prioritize your purchases, and budget for necessities. He urges a person to set aside money for emergencies. Determine your income and expenses and budget accordingly. His theory for financial freedom can be found in the "70, 20, 10" formula. There is also a section with advice for investments You must read the book to learn this strategy for success!
I really like the cover graphics for this book!
(The book has a distracting number of spelling and grammatical errors which could be corrected fairly easily.)
In this book, Nicholas L. Maze will teach you how to get out of debt and also explain how you can build up wealth by investing. He begins his book by including a short history of money and then talks about how we become victims of credit. He also advises the reader to have an emergency fund although one thousand dollars is not much. I'd recommend saving money to cover at least three months worth of expenses or more.
So how much should you save? How much should you spend on expenses and how much should you invest? Nicholas L. Maze gives the answers and helps you become more secure and knowledgable about where to invest your money.
If you are in debt then you can't read this book too soon. With a little advice you can escape financial doom.
