WHY TAKE PERSONAL FINANCE? Ever person must deal with their personal finances. At some point in our lives (usually sooner than later), we must be able to negotiate a loan (where should we apply for the loan, what will the lender be looking for in their analysis, and when would be the best time to apply), decide how much to save and where to place the funds (stocks, bonds, mutual funds), determine what type of insurance policy you need for your life, disability, health, property/casualty needs, examine the types of pensions offered when seeking employment, and handle an estate (parents'). Understanding your personal finances is essential for everyone, unless you wish to depend on another's determination of your needs. COURSE OBJECTIVE: The primary overall objective of this course is to broaden all of our horizons with respect to personal financial issues. More specifically, we will look at those common financial issues that will impact us throughout our lives. An overview of and the related issues involved in personal and family financial planning with an emphasis on financial recordkeeping, planning your spending, tax planning, consumer credit, making buying decisions, purchasing insurance, selecting investments, and retirement and estate planning will be discussed. Your tests integrate concepts. They are not homework problems with different numbers.
