Title: Running the Money Marathon - Financial Planning for the Long Run
Authors: Ching, Grant
Issue Date: 15 Jan 2014
Publisher: University of Hawaii at Manoa
Abstract: To boldly go where no honors candidate has gone before... If Gene Roddenberry, the creator of Star Trek, were alive today to read my honors thesis, these are the words he might use to describe it. the Money Marathon has gone not only where no honors candidate has gone before, but it has very likely gone where no other modem dayauthor has ever gone before. In writing my thesis, I have attempted to bridge the gap between fiction and non-fiction. But why would I want to? After all, I would be the first to admit that even though I am an English major, I am not inclined to join the theoretical discussion of the differences between non-fiction and fiction. Rather, I want to make personal finance (a subject which I love, but one that l know makes many readers' eyes glaze over) truly palatable and enjoyable for the average Generation Xer. I want my peers to think about--and begin planning for--their financial futures.
