In reality, your money problems may not be money problems at all. As Dr. Bernard E. Poduska points out in Till Debt Do Us Part, most financial problems are actually behavior problems. If you can identify the behavior problems – and the emotions behind the behavior – you will be well on your way to solving your financial woes.

Dana Mackenzie lands a job with a faceless financial institution—it’s either this or piercing ears at the mall—and while she’s grateful for a job, she has no intentions of following the corporate offices’ heartless orders. She’s sent to the home of an elderly couple with instruction to repossess their television, but instead finds sweet old Mr. Sullivan murdered. Investigating the case is homicide detective Nick Travis, Dana’s high school crush, who’s still harboring a dark secret from their past. Dana agrees to help Mr. Sullivan’s grieving family locate his grandson, a guy with a surprising new lifestyle. Her good intentions put her in the thick of the murder investigation and on a collision course with the killer.
Many families want to adopt, but do not have the large amount of money it takes to complete a private domestic or international adoption. Some quickly give up the idea of adopting and are left feeling frustrated, overwhelmed, and discouraged. Those who choose to proceed often take out large loans or borrow from family and friends which adds to the financial pressure on the family. Author Julie Gumm shares proven strategies from her own experience as well as from others that include applying for grants, creative budgeting, and fundraising that prospective adoptive parents can use to prepare for and avoid those high costs associated with adoption.
For decades, politicians and business leaders alike told the American public that our most important challenge was growing the economy, and that environmental protection could be left to future generations. Now, in the wake of billions of dollars in costs associated with coastal devastation from Hurricane Sandy, rampant wildfires across the West, and groundwater contamination from reckless drilling, it’s increasingly clear that yesterday’s carefree attitude about the environment has morphed into a fiscal crisis of epic proportions. Environmental Debt argues that the costs of global warming, extreme weather, pollution, and other forms of “environmental debt” are wreaking havoc on the economy. To combat these trends, author Amy Larkin proposes a new framework for twenty-first century commerce, based on three principles: 1) Pollution can no longer be free; 2) All business decision making and accounting must incorporate the long view; and 3) Government must play a vital role in catalyzing clean technology and growth while preventing environmental destruction. Profiling the multinational corporations that are transforming their operations with downright radical initiatives, Larkin presents smart policy choices that would actually unleash these business solutions to many global financial and environmental problems.
