US Presidents and Personal Finance
FEBRUARY 3, 2014
Some of our presidents didn’t really have it all together on the personal level. I wonder if that could be part of our national debt problem. Grant also did poorly in personal finance. He ended up hundreds of thousands of dollars in debt and only salvaged his estate by selling (after his death) his civil war memoirs. In more recent times, President Truman also did poorly on the personal finance front.
