For 30 years, Suze Orman has been a financial guru, plus has written 6 consecutive best sellers (though she too was caught off-guard by the recent financial collapse).
In an interview, Suze was asked: "What was your favorite subject in school?" Her response: "Math, absolutely--math." Nice answer, Suze!
Then she was asked: "What is your idea of a perfect teacher?" Suze responded: "It would have to be one who inspires you to be more than you ever dreamed you could be." Good answer, Suze!
But, I am left with two more questions: (1) What role does math play in your current work with financial forecasting?, and (2) Aren't the words "perfect teacher" an oxymoran?
