Introducing John Wasik, columnist

July 21, 2010

The following is by John Wasik, a columnist for and author of “The Audacity of Help: Obama’s Economic Plan and the Remaking of America.” The opinions expressed are his own.

This is not a column about money. It’s about your life.

I see money as a tool to get you where you want to be. My aspiration is to help you save, plan for your retirement and college expenses, deal effectively with taxes, manage your real estate, invest prudently and take care of your complicated family finances. I’m not interested in quick stock or mutual fund picks that might lead you astray; I’m concerned about your relationship to your investments, income, family and the rest of your life.

What should you be doing given that you may be working longer and living into your ninth and tenth decades? After more than a quarter century of writing about (seven books, countless articles) and advising folks on personal finance, I don’t have all the answers. Yet I’ll certainly try to provide some fresh and useful insights on how you can best succeed.
