The Investor´s Primer (Classic Reprint): John Moody
An Investment Primer for New Investors:A Step-By-Step Guide to Investment Success Perry L. Angle
One of the foremost financial writers of his generation, Peter Bernstein has the unique ability to synthesize intellectual history and economics with the theory and practice of investment management. Now, with classic titles such as Economist on Wall Street, A Primer on Money, Banking, and Gold, and The Price of Prosperity - which have forewords by financial luminaries and new introductions by the author - you can enjoy some of the best of Bernstein in his earlier Wall Street days. With the proliferation of financial instruments, new areas of instability, and innovative capital market strategies, many economists and investors have lost sight of the fundamentals of the financial system - its strengths as well as its weaknesses. A Primer on Money, Banking, and Gold takes you back to the beginning and sorts out all the pieces. Peter Bernstein skillfully addresses how and why commercial banks lend and invest, where money comes from, how it moves from hand to hand, and the critical role of interest rates. He explores the Federal Reserve System and the consequences of the Fed´s actions on the overall economy. But this book is not just about the past. Bernstein´s novel perspective on gold and the dollar is critical for today´s decision makers, as he provides extensive views on the future of money, banking, and gold in the world economy. This illuminating story about the heart of our economic system is essential reading at a time when developments in finance are more important than ever. 1. Language: English. Narrator: Sean Pratt.

The Mind and the Stock Market:A Primer for a Beginning Investor Stephen H. Archer
A house flipper looking for quick profit. A survivor with a dream. Can two broken hearts find a place to call home? Prepare for romance and fun with the first audiobook in a brand new home-flipping series brought to you by USA Today best-selling author Josie Riviera. When a Miami investor calls in search of prime property-flip prospects, North Carolina real estate broker Candee Contando expects to meet a balding, steely-eyed land shark. Turns out the first customer she’s had in months is a hot prospect in more ways than one. Except his gaze has fallen on her dream house, a dilapidated Victorian she just bid her last penny on in hopes of creating a safe place for disadvantaged children - like the girl she used to be. Teddy Winchester is adept at negotiating life’s curves, but Candee’s curves stop him in his tracks. She’s a warm spark in the emptiness he’s felt since his brother died, leaving him with a beloved nephew to raise. Attraction glows in Candee’s eyes as well, but there’s also wistfulness as she points out all the reasons an old, tumbledown Victorian doesn’t fit into his tried-and-true house-flipping plan. Yet the more he looks at the house - and at her - he begins to think some things are worth the risk. Now if only he can convince her that building a new life often starts with tearing down some walls.... When the heart flips, there’s no telling where the walls will fall. 1. Language: English.

In 1991 India faced its ´Greece moment´: an unprecedented financial crisis against the backdrop of political uncertainty and crumbling investor confidence. On 21 June 1991, P. V. Narasimha Rao became prime minister and appointed Dr Manmohan Singh as finance minister. In less than 35 days, the Rao-Singh duo ushered in momentous changes in economic policy - those that transformed the country. To the Brink and Back is the first account of the weeks of fast-paced change, narrated by an insider - a key aide of the prime minister, uniquely positioned both to participate and observe. It includes brisk accounts of the early days of survival; the compulsions and convictions that propelled a paradigm shift in India´s economic policy; and the ups and downs, twists and turns in the saga of fiscal reform. Along with the author´s astute insights, the book holds key documents and notes, placed for the first time in the public domain; the personal papers of Narasimha Rao; private conversations with Manmohan Singh; Parliament proceedings; and the minutes of seminal Congress meetings. Coming as it does on the eve of the silver jubilee of India´s economic liberalization, To the Brink and Back will appeal not only to political history enthusiasts but also to those who wish to know how countries can be led from the brink to a radically new economic future. 1.

How do TV shows, vending machines, Chinese taxi companies, and a former UK prime minister point to a gold bubble that is about to burst? Many investors consider gold a ´´safe haven´´ that will shelter them from recessions, falling markets, and the depreciating value of currency. Many fail to realize, however, that investing in gold at these levels is extremely risky. ´´We Buy Gold´´ stores line busy streets, gold miners are no longer protecting themselves from a potential drop in prices, and gold is even being sold in vending machines. All this points to one thing: a gold bubble has formed and will collapse very soon, hurting investors, funds, and banks. In Gold Bubble: Profiting From Gold´s Impending Collapse, Yoni Jacobs looks at how you can protect yourself. Presenting an in-depth analysis of gold dating back over a hundred years, the book explores the structural factors that have allowed gold to form a bubble, why an investor psychology of fear and greed is leading to extremely speculative behavior, why gold will fall during an upcoming recession, what effect the dollar and the stock market will have on the future of gold prices, and how to profit from a gold collapse while the majority of investors lose out. There are plenty of warning signs that gold is about to decline and this book will help you to get ready. Gold Bubble is the only book to argue that a gold bust is coming, going head-to-head with the herd mentality. Filled with practical advice on how to protect yourself and even profit from gold´s collapse by being prepared for what´s ahead. With gold prices up over 2,500 percent since 1970, and more than 600 percent since 1999, a bubble has formed and is on the verge of bursting. But until now, no one has been willing to publicly bet against the universal currency. With Gold Bubble you are ready to meet this challenge head on, and take advantage of what other investors won´t even ack... 1. Language: English. Narrator: Norman Dietz.
