Biography

Helaine Olen is the author of Pound Foolish: Exposing the Dark Side of the Personal Finance Industry. The book was published in late 2012 to rave reviews in the United States, Canada and Great Britain. The New York Times called it “A take-no-prisoners examination of the ways … we have been scared, misled or bamboozled by those purporting to help us achieve financial security.” The Economist cited her for her “icy logic.” Kirkus called it “dishy.” Even Jon Stewart – who featured Olen on both his show and on an extended online segment—proclaimed the book “tremendous.”

Ms. Olen currently maintains a popular blog on the Forbes platform entitled “Where Life Meets Money,” where she discusses both the political and practical implications of personal finance in a way that is understandable by people with no expertise in the subject. She has a light but pointed touch, and can leapfrog from why Casey Anthony can declare bankruptcy and expect to discharge her debts, but someone with student loan bills can do no such thing to how the 401(k) system developed and works and doesn’t work for millions of Americans.

Helaine Olen’s work in personal finance, economics, parenting (usually with a money-related focus) and career strategies has been published in numerous print and on-line publications, including The New York Times, The Washington Post, The Atlantic, Slate, Salon and The Los Angeles Times, where she got her start in personal finance writing and editing the popular “Money Makeover” feature. She’s also the co-author of Office Mate: The Employee Manual for Finding and Managing Romance on the Job.
