Most all the documents are presented via Google Docs. You should be able to read the documents on any device. Very cool!

You should also be able to download the documents into a PDF or Word or OpenOffice or Rich Text Format file. Also very cool!

However, if your device says that the document could not be read or you are possibly not connected to the Internet, try updating your mobile device Google Docs app or updating your PC, Mac, or Linux browser.

You, too, can use Google Docs. It is free and allows you to manipulate your documents on your desktop or laptop computer or your mobile device. Plus they will give you several gigabytes of free storage. Again, very cool!

Announcements and class material begin below. Keep scrolling.



Be not afraid.

"The moral arc of the universe in long, but it bends toward justice." -- Martin Luther King, Jr.

"This country is so fundamentally strong it can survive its leaders." -- Louis Rukeyser

Is the American republic built to withstand a malevolent president?

Same arguments as during Fascism in the 1930's and 1940's.



  *** Text Book Information at the Bottom of the Page ***  

Yes, yes, I know. This looks intimidating. "All those links!"
Relax. Much of it is duplicated. (In the case of the presentations, quaduplicated!)
Just get started and remember to work on the material an hour each day.

Text Book

Here are links to venders who sell or rent our text book: "Focus on Personal Finance"
The text book is also available at the college book store as well as numerous other outlets.
It should also be available as an on-line text book.
You can use any of the editions below. They are all basically the same. Required assignments are on this class web site
Only optional and recommended assignments are taken from the book. You can find similar assignments in any of the editions.
DISCLAIMER: I receive NO COMMISSION, KICKBACK, REMUNERATION, ETC. from any of these venders.
Do not complain to me if they turn out to be superflakes (or worse) who lose your order twice (or try to rip you off).
Personally, I am very wary of buying products via the Internet and I very rarely do so. Good Luck!
