Communities and the World
The partners and associates of Meridian care deeply about the communities we serve and the world we live in. On this page you’ll find a curated selection of the causes, culture, events, organizations and people we’re excited about. Stop by frequently for the latest additions.
By Thaler and Sunstein — A fun read about choices, how our brain is wired to decide, and how we can make better choices.
By Ric Edelman — If we were going to write a book on money and investing, it would look a lot like Ric’s (although ours would be gentler).
By Fraunfelder and Gilbaugh — The authors lay out eight great characteristics that generally lead to a happy and successful retirement (it’s true – we’ve seen it in many of our clients!).
By Michael Lewis — A true story, the book’s heroes discover the stock market is rigged and decide to do something about it.
By Arthur T. Vanderbilt, II — The vast wealth of the Vanderbilt family was earned in two generations, then wasted by the next several. A rags to riches to rags story.
