Personal finance is something that leaves a lot of us scratching our heads as we ponder questions like how to save, what to invest, and how to do all this while reducing debt. University of Chicago professor Dr. Harold Pollack and his co-author, financial journalist Helaine Olen, say it really isn't as difficult as some would have you believe.
They say, by following ten simple rules, you can lay out your financial plan on something as small as a 4" x 6" note card. Their book is "The Index Card: Why Personal Finance Doesn't Have to Be Complicated." Harold Pollack joins us this afternoon to tell us how the book came to be and to share some of its advice.
