Stop trying to keep up with the Joneses—they’re broke!
Canada is a nation drowning in debt. We used to be known as savers, but savings rates are negative for the first time in Canadian history. We have become a consumer-driven society, buying things we don’t need with money we don’t have.
The Smart Canadian’s Guide to Building Wealth is all about money: How to get it, how to keep it, and how to make it grow. Pat Foran delivers a strong message about why Canadians are in such rough financial shape, as well as practical advice on how you can gain control of your financial situation and build wealth of your own.
You’ll learn secrets of financial success from wealthy Canadians, how they got to be where they are today, and their advice on how you can do better financially. And you’ll get practical, straightforward advice from one of Canada’s leading consumer advocates on:
How to reduce your dependence on credit and cut down your debt by recognizing the difference between good debt and bad debt, choosing the right credit card, knowing the facts about debt consolidation, and more.
How to stop wasting your hard-earned money and start saving it in many areas, including: cars, insurance, shopping wisely, and taxes.
How to harness the power of the money you do have and make it work for you through real estate, RRSPs, RESPs, choosing the right financial advisor, and more.
