The Number: What Do You Need for the Rest of Your Life and What Will it Cost?
.
Publisher:
New York, NY: Free Press, 2007
.
Notes:
Offers commonsense advice about the often anxiety-riddled discussion concerning financial planning for a secure and fulfilling future. The Number represents the amount of money and resources people will need to enjoy the active life they desire, especially post-career. From Wall Street to Main Street USA, The Number means different things to different people. It is constantly fluctuating in people's minds and bank accounts, and is as much about self-worth as net-worth. This book is not an investment guide, but rather a look behind our most common financial and emotional conflicts and how we can begin to get a grip on them

Calls for a new social contract between the older and younger generations, based on their mutual interests and the moral responsibility of each generation to provide for children and the elderly

Boston, MA: Houghton Mifflin Company, 1998
