Money—How to Save It, Spend It, and Make It provides practical guidance about money in terms of investment, income, and profit. This book focuses on the three main topics, namely, on buying profitably, on saving money on taxation, and on making money by investment.

Organized into three parts encompassing 36 chapters, this book begins with an overview of the method of getting the best value of money by understanding how to keep taxation at a minimum legitimately and how to invest at the best advantage. This text then discusses the concept of annuity mortgage, which is a mortgage loan on a property to be bought. Other chapters consider the various components of income tax. This book discusses as well the important distinction between income from working and investment income for tax purposes. The final chapter deals with investments in trust units, trust shares, or other equities.

This book is a valuable resource for readers who are interested in saving and making money.
