How to shape a life of money and meaning
Brian Portnoy, Magnetar Capital
How does money figure into a happy life?
Brian Portnoy builds on the critical distinction between being rich and being wealthy: while one is an unsatisfying treadmill, the other is the ability to underwrite a meaningful life, however one chooses to define that. Truly viewed, wealth is funded contentment.
At the heart of this groundbreaking perspective, Portnoy takes readers on a journey toward wealth, informed by disciplines ranging from ancient history to modern neuroscience. He contends that tackling the big questions about a joyful life and tending to financial decisions are complementary, not separate, tasks.
