Personal finance and investing can sometimes be daunting to initiate. Yet long-term investing in equities can yield significant results with relatively low risk. We will examine the benefits of investing and how to initiate a low-cost, long-term investment plan. We will work from the critically acclaimed A Random Walk Down Wall Street by Burton G. Malkiel. This class is for those that have some understanding of finance and would like to learn more as well as the novice that would like to take charge of their own lifetime savings. We will also examine typical personal finance issues as compounding, insurance, credit cards, student loans, buy vs lease auto decision and other personal finance areas as identified by students.  Emphasis will be on in-class exchanges with like minded investors.
