Jeremy Goldman is the author of Going Social and Getting to Like, a former Inc. columnist, and the founder of digital consultancy Firebrand Group. In addition to FUTUREPROOF. he serves as the Director of Marketing & Commerce Briefings at Insider Intelligence.

Think about all of the financial decisions we make about our education, careers, marriages, retirement ages, Social Security, taxes, and investments. They all affect our standard of living —but most of us make these decisions by relying on crude rules of thumb or take questionable advice from friends and family, media gurus, self described experts, and advisers who are frequently little more than self-interested salespeople. There’s obviously a problem with what I’m describing, don’t you think? 

That’s why I wanted to talk to noted economist and New York Times bestselling author Larry Kotlikoff about his new book, Money Magic, which distills his best personal finance advice to increase your spending power and enhance your standard of living. If you’ve ever felt like you could be living better or making better financial decisions, I think you’ll enjoy this one.
