This Element is an excerpt from Your Money Milestones: A Guide to Making the 9 Most Important Financial Decisions of Your Life (9780137029105) by Moshe A. Milevsky, Ph.D. Available in print and digital formats.

If you consider the spreading of resources over time, you can arrive at the same conclusion. But the reason is not as simple as you might think.
