Is it possible to be a conscientious citizen of the world and grow wealth? The author, a Buddhist and a financial planner, says yes and explains exactly how. Jonathan DeYoe shows how money drives so many of our decisions. But while we worry about earning it, spending it, and saving it, few of us face it head on. The whole point of Buddhism, he says, is 'to deal with what is, to look it straight in the eye,' and in the context of finances, this means not averting our eyes, deferring toexperts, or engaging in get-rich-quick magical thinking. With this in mind, DeYoe shows readers, no matter their income level or spiritual perspective, how to save and invest, pay off debt, and invest for retirement according to their deepest beliefs. The author does all this while emphasizing that money is merely a tool for providing not only material peace of mind but also 'the happiness dividend' we all deserve.
