19 short stories about the Psychology of Money

Learn from 19 short stories about timeless lessons on wealth, greed, and happiness.

Doing well with money isn’t necessarily about what you know. Indeed, it’s about how you behave. And behavior is hard to teach, even to brilliant people. Money―investing, personal finance, and business decisions―is typically taught as a math-based field. Data and formulas tell us precisely what to do, but people don’t make financial decisions on a spreadsheet in the real world. Generally they make their financial decisions at the dinner table or in a meeting room. Accordingly personal history, your unique view of the world, ego, pride, marketing, and odd incentives are all scrambled together.
