Description: Hear how some of our presidents handled their finances after they left office in an entertaining lecture by CPA and presidential history buff Ed Mendlowitz.
Forty-four men have been president of the United States; 8 died in office; 36 survived their terms. One became a drunk, 2 bankrupt, 1 a traitor, 1 a Congressman, 1 a senator and 1 the Chief Justice of the Supreme Court. Some remained involved in politics and tried to run again for president, while one succeeded in winning a nonconsecutive term. Many sold their name and notoriety. One thing they all had in common after their terms were completed--they no longer lived rent-free in government housing and they had to make a living. This program will look at their financial affairs, their investments, and the everyday financial and health problems they encountered. Some of their problems can be related to issues people confront today but without the celebrity status. This will be an interesting, yet practical, trip through history with an extensive handout sent by email to attendees.
