Financial education should be a school subject from a young age, but this is no excuse for not having financial stability and building wealth.
1. The Millionaire Next Door by Thomas J. Stanley
This book breaks a very popular belief among the poor and middle class, which is to think that millionaires spend money on luxurious cars and live a life at “all rags”, but the truth is that following a saying that we have around here: ” If you want to be a millionaire, don’t live like a millionaire ”, the truth is that a millionaire could be a neighbor in your neighborhood who leads a discreet life, and in many cases, as the author explains, the children of this family themselves, sometimes not they know they belong to the wealthiest class.
A financial education book whose reading is entertaining and enjoyable and with many financial tips that it never hurts to know.
2. The secrets of the millionaire mind of T. Harv Eker
This is one of those financial education books that starts from the premise that one person fails while another succeeds, solely because the person who succeeds is because he has habits that the person who fails lacks. In this book, we would find very concrete steps to change those habits and thoughts that are a brake on our financial goals.
3. The Richest Man in Babylon by George S Clason.
A timeless classic that will help you achieve your financial goals and wealth, starting with effort, dedication and taking action on our part. It will provide you with a set of rules for success that are as old as they are valid today. In addition, it is a book written in a very simple language and very fast to read. Without a doubt, one of the best financial education books ever written.
4. Rich Dad, Poor Dad by Robert T. Kiyosaki
We have already named this book several times. In fact, I think it should be compulsory in school instead of the famous “Little Prince”, because it treats financial education in such a basic way that even a child would be motivated to go out and take over the world.
The book basically explains the difference between the thinking of a person who dreams of working as a civil servant or in a company, and people who really want to have purchasing power and financial freedom. Throughout the book, even those who have worked for the same company for 20 years will be tempted to change.
5. The Tao of Warren Buffett
This book shows the investment habits of the current best investor on the planet, not from the technical side, but from the prism of thought and analysis, in addition to taking a tour of the beginnings of the great Warren Buffett, since he earned his first dollars selling newspapers and packaging up to the Berkshire Hathaway Empire. Fully recommended as an aperitif before reading the last book we will recommend.
In search of effective financial education
6. The money code by Raimón Samsó Queraltó
From managing time to financial freedom to how to generate passive income, a book full of practical advice and very easy to understand. Without a doubt, for someone who has not read a Financial Education book, it can be a good book to start with.
7. The winning investment habits of Warren Buffett and George Soros.
I have looked for this book in Spanish, and so far there has been no luck, so it is probably only in English for now. I have not read it, but I am sure that it should not be wasted, since both Soros and Buffett are long-term investors, who have had a minimum margin of error for decades, making their investments a lucrative business by At the same time, they minimize risks to the maximum, thanks to the study they carry out before investing.
8. The Smart Investor, by Benjamin Graham
This book is already a legend in the investment world, especially because it belongs to an investment legend, Benjamin Graham, Warren Buffett professor. Although this book is not purely Financial Education, it is mandatory for anyone who at some point in life needs or wants to invest. The most advanced of all that I have exposed.
9. Money and conscience: Who does our money serve? by Joan Antoni Melé
This book tries to raise awareness, as its name suggests, of the importance of where we direct our consumption habits. It is not that it is a financial education book in itself, but the truth is that you will find very interesting concepts about the importance of money and our habits.
