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.
