How Much Is Enough?
This two-session course hosted by Indiana University Alumni Association offers an opportunity to explore the personal economics and considerations behind the age-old question of just how much is enough?
According to an October 2022 report in Fortune, most Americans (65 percent) live paycheck to paycheck, including 49 percent of six-figure earners. Chasing the American dream often entails going deep into debt to buy the most house you can and filling that home with more “toys” than you need (e.g., daily Amazon deliveries). However, all that stuff is not leading to happier lives. Instead, Americans feel more overworked and stressed out than ever before.
How much is enough (house, salary, car, savings, risk, etc.) depends on various factors, but studies show that learning to be content with less leads to higher levels of personal satisfaction. Also, those who let go of social pressures and achieve financial freedom early in life reap the reward of lifestyle flexibility well before the typical retirement age. The first step is understanding the psychology of money and behavioral finance.
This two-part course will cover behavioral finance, define the new American dream, and set some goals. In the second session, we’ll uncover some financial secrets to help participants save money and manage debt. Ultimately, this course aims to help participants discover a personal response to just how much is enough.
