Abstract:

In this surprising new book, financial professional Peter Neuwirth shows how you can efficiently weigh the possible future consequences of any decision you make without resorting to a crystal ball. Every day we make decisions that will affect out the future. How can we make these decisions in a smarter, more systematic way? How can we balance present realities with future possibilities? Neuwirth offers an accessible guide to using the powerful concept of Present Value determining the value today of something that may happen in the future to systematically evaluate all of the outcomes that might arise from choosing one path as opposed to another. He shows how we can put the present and the future on an equal footing, comparing the future costs and benefits with the present costs and benefits, and thereby make apples to apples comparisons. This book will be indispensable for anyone who has ever had to figure out whether or not to stick with their awful job or follow their bliss, fix that old car or buy a new one, have kids now or later or ever.
