I'm Harold Pollack, a UChicago professor who created one index card with all the financial advice you'll ever need. AMA!
I'm a professor at the UChicago School of Social Service Administration, as well as a regular contributor to publications including the Washington Post, the Nation, New Republic, Politico, and the Atlantic. My new book "The Index Card: Why Personal Finance Doesn’t Have to be Complicated" (co-written Helaine Olen) explains 10 simple rules for managing your money—all of which can fit on a single 4x6 index card. Got personal finance questions? Ask me anything.
I have to break off--a doctoral student is waiting for me. I will come back and respond to remaining questions later. Thank you so much for your attention and the great questions. I am actually very passionate about this subject. It's great to see so many of you taking this seriously at a younger age from what I did.
