Haskell has a PhD and MS in Economics from the University of Utah, and BS in Family Financial Planning and Counseling from Brigham Young University. Though clearly passionate about the discipline of finance and economics, his true passions are his wife, children and grandchildren.
"I've been married for over 40 years to a beautiful and patient wife, and have four children and a growing number of grandchildren spread from Virginia to San Diego. I'm actively involved in my church and serve on the boards of local charitable foundations. When I have spare time, or when I used to have spare time, I spend it in my shop building furniture, in my yard tending my ponds and gardens, entertaining and cooking for guests. My life is full to say the very least and I'm grateful for it. I'm one of those fortunate men whose allowed to spend time doing what I love."
