About the author (1999)

Joe Dominguez was born on February 2, 1938. Considered a pioneer in the sustainability movement, he, together with partner Vicki Robin, co-authored the best-seller Your Money or Your Life: Transforming Your Relationship with Money and Achieving Financial Independence.

He continued to live off of the investment income, about $6,000 a year, with a strong desire to tell others how to do the same. The proceeds of his book sales and other efforts to increase financial literacy have been donated to the New Road Map Foundation, an all-volunteer, non-profit foundation founded to promote the reduction of North American consumption. Dominguez died of cancer in Seattle on January 11, 1997.
