Example text

Since I believe that everyone who has to make life decisions can benefit from thinking more systematically about the choices they face, in a sense, this book is for everyone, or at least everyone who wants to get better at making decisions. The above notwithstanding, there are certain people for whom this book will be particularly valuable. For example, I think that those who advise others on financial, medical, and lifestyle choices may find learning about the actuarial perspective and Present Value very useful indeed.

Step 3 was舒as in the prior example舒very simple. Here I assumed that it was a certainty that we would be going to Kauai and proceeded on to step 4. In step 4, I decided to use a relatively low discount rate because I was not in that much of a hurry to get away and as a result came up with a figure of $6500 (the value today of the $7000舑$8000 I was going to pay when I eventually did go to Kauai) to compare to the $5000 that we were going to pay. Thus, it seemed that we were essentially being offered $1500 ($6500 舑 $5000) to spend ninety minutes of our vacation listening to a sales pitch that we had no obligation or reason to accept.

If so, how much could I expect to earn and at what risk? My point is not that there is a clear way to incorporate all these factors into a calculation. In fact, I doubt that a formal Present Value calculation would be of any practical use in this case. My point instead is to show that when we make even a mundane decision like buying running shoes it is helpful to use the concept of Present Value to make our choice. So how did I approach the problem? In brief, I used the actuarial perspective to make my decision.
