Math and Finance For the Rest of Us

The 7 Most Important Equations for Your RetirementMoshe Milevsky has written yet another book for the math-challenged.  You may ask yourself, “What possible connection is their between my money and Leonardo Fibonacci? For Pete’s sake, the man died 800 years ago!” Moshe Milevsky is more than happy to explain.

Milevsky is a well-respected author and speaker who is sometimes thought of as the expert consulted by other financial planning professionals. The Canadian economist is an Associate Professor in Finance at the Schulich School of Business at York University, Canada.

Milevsky’s sixth book, The 7 Most Important Equations for Your Retirement, published in May of this year, breaks difficult concepts down to their basics for the benefit of the average reader – and does it with a smile. In this book, concepts developed by Leonardo Fibonacci, Edmond Halley, Paul Samuelson and other mathematicians are used to lead the reader through basic theories of investment planning for individuals -- including the economics of retirement.

Some of Milevsky’s other books include Are You a Stock or a Bond? and Your Money Milestones: A Guide to Making the 9 Most Important Financial Decisions of Your Life. General readers and experts alike appreciate the clear explanations and back-ground information the author provides in his books. Readers will come away with a better understanding of their personal financial choices.
