The cofounder of America Online and the presidential ambassador for global entrepreneurship shares a road map to success for future innovators. Steve Case was on the leading edge of the Internet revolution when he cofounded AOL in 1991. He was an entrepreneur in a business that hadn't even been invented, yet he saw how significantly his efforts could change not only America but the world. In The Third Wave, Case uses his insights garnered from nearly four decades of working as an innovator, investor, and businessperson to chart a path for future visionaries. From his position as an investor in start-ups like Zipcar and LivingSocial, Case predicts the future of the economy and describes what he calls the "Third Wave of the Internet". AOL and other companies introduced early consumers to the Internet in the first wave; search giants such as Google and companies such as Apple have led us into the second wave, the app economy; and the third wave will be "the Internet of things", in which every experience, product, and service will be transacted online. Using his own experience and examples from companies he's invested in, he lays out a vision for the future of success in a disrupted age. 1. Language: English. Narrator: Steve Case.

If you’re new to cryptocurrencies, you may be wondering what on earth is the term ‘Ethereum’? I myself was curious too. I wondered if it was some sort of new sci-fi movie that was released or an extension of the never ending Transformers saga. In some ways it could be, but that we will have to wait. In this present day, Ethereum is a new age revolution, being the second biggest cryptocurrency after Bitcoin. It has made headlines all around the world being the leader in alternative coins, allowing itself to explode in value in 2017, from $8 to $300, a WHOPPING 5000%! The multi-billionaire investor Warren Buffet once said "never invest in a business you cannot understand." I myself started investing into cryptocurrencies with Ethereum, and if you’ve read my previous book, ‘Mastering Bitcoin’, you’d know I started investing because of my friend. Not only did he make an outstanding 400% return on his investment, he told me his next investment project was Ethereum. I was curious to know what this was and I studied everything I could about Ethereum, and here we are.In this book, we will first familiarize you with the essentials of Ethereum, explain everything you need to know about the cryptocurrency, so that you become smarter than the average Ethereum investor.

All truth passes through three stages. First, it is ridiculed. Second, it is violently opposed. Third, it is accepted as self-evident. (Arthur Schopenhauer)The Ponzi Factor is the most comprehensive research ever compiled on the negative-sum nature of capital gains (non-dividend stocks). This means, as a whole, ALL investors will lose money from buying and selling stocks. Most people don’t realize that profits from buying and selling stocks come from other investors who are also buying and selling stocks. When one investor buys low and sells high, another investor is also buying high and needs to sell for even higher.Companies like Google, Telsa, Facebook never pay their investors. Their investors’ profits are dependent on the inflow of money from new investors, which by definition, is how a Ponzi scheme works. This book is not for everyone. If you are a finance junkie who wants to rationalize why companies don’t have to pay their investors and believe a system that shuffles money between investor can magically create more money than people contribute, then this book is not for you. On the other hand, if you understand that money doesn’t grow on trees and investors invest because they want money, not value, then you will learn something you will never forget: the simple truth about what makes a stock price move and the mechanics of how the stock market really works. A stock without dividends is a Ponzi asset. It’s not how ownership instruments were designed to work historically or logically. True ideas will never disappear. It can be covered, and we can get distracted, but the truth never goes away and becomes self-evident over time. The Ponzi Factor is not a perspective or an opinion. It is a proof that is based on definition, logic, and it is supported by observable facts and history. This is not a story that will disappear after another market crash. It is an idea that will remain relevant for as 1. Language: English. Narrator: Sean Pratt. Audio sample: http://samples.audible.de/bk/acx0/109885/bk_acx0_109885_sample.mp3. Digital audiobook in aax.
