Rose Fres Fausto turns the spotlight on principles affecting money behaviors in “Why Financial Education Alone Does Not Work,” the second installment in her financial intelligence quotient (FQ) trilogy published by ABS-CBN Books.
“Why Financial Education Alone Does Not Work” is divided into three parts. Fausto shares her detailed assessment in the first part of the book followed by a crash course on behavioral economics.
In the third part, “The Psychology of Money,” she introduces the characters Mak, who is makatwiran or rational, and Emong, who makes financial decisions based on his emotions.
Readers will see themselves in these characters as Fausto tackles 16 vital principles that affect how people arrive at money decisions in everyday life, whether they’re buying essentials, paying for repairs or doing leisurely activities.
Fausto is a newspaper columnist, behavioral economist and Gallup-certified strengths coach. Her new manual is a follow-up to “FQ: The nth Intelligence.”
