Over the past fifty years, the way we value what is 'good' and 'right' has changed dramatically. Behaviour that to our grandparents' generation might have seemed stupid, harmful or simply wicked now seems rational, natural, woven into the very logic of things. And, asserts Jonathan Aldred in this revelatory new book, it's economics that's to blame. Licence to be Bad tells the story of how a group of economics theorists changed our world, and how a handful of key ideas seeped into our decision-making and, indeed, almost all aspects of our lives. Aldred reveals the extraordinary hold of economics on our morals and values. Economics has corrupted us. But if this hidden transformation is so recent, it can be reversed. Licence to be Bad shows us where to begin.
Bestselling author Charles B. Carlson returns with a counterintuitive yet simple strategy for beating the Dow and making money in the stock market. In Winning with the Dow's Losers, Carlson shows how any investor -- with any size portfolio or any level of investment knowledge -- can apply his worst-to-first strategy to generate impressive wealth over the long term. By following this simple, sound, and time-tested strategy, investors can invest in high-quality stocks at beaten-down prices and watch them rebound year after year. Investors can: Start with as little as $1,000. Invest in as few as 1 or as many as 10 Dow stocks. Review and adjust your portfolio no more than once a year. Achieve better results than the famous "Dogs of the Dow" approach. Stock market funds come and go, while investors who chase them usually enrich only their stockbrokers and not themselves. Now, with Winning with the Dow's Losers, you can regularly pick winning stocks and make money for yourself.
Delving into the world of big money has all the excitement of being a war correspondent with only two-thirds of the danger. In None of My Business, P.J. O'Rourke takes forty-five years of experience making fun of terrible things in some of the world's most awful places and applies it to a place that's even worse-Wall Street. Want to get rich overnight for free in three easy steps with no risk? Then don't buy this book. (Actually, if you believe there's a book that can do that, you shouldn't buy any books because you probably can't read.) P.J.'s approach to business, investment, finance, and innovation is different. He takes the risks for you in his chapter "How I Learned Economics by Watching People Try to Kill Each Other," detailing the economic lessons he learned while reporting in some of the most turbulent combat zones across the world. P.J. has his eye on the present as well as the past. He explores the world of high tech innovation with a chapter on the Internet, which poses the question, "whose idea was it to put every idiot in the world in touch with every other idiot?" P.J. is baffled by bitcoin, which seems to him "like a weird scam invented by strange geeks with weaponized slide rules in the high school Evil Math Club." And he writes a fanciful short story about the morning he wakes up to find that all the world's goods and services are free-with disastrous (and hilarious) results for the rule of law and the harmony of society. This is P.J. at his finest, a book that reminds us that when everything around us is Liar's Poker, all we can do is fold-with laughter.
From a giant of health care policy, an engaging and enlightening account of why American health care is so expensive "and why it doesn't have to be Uwe Reinhardt was a towering figure and moral conscience of health care policy in the United States and beyond. Famously bipartisan, he advised presidents and Congress on health reform and originated central features of the Affordable Care Act. In Priced Out, Reinhardt offers an engaging and enlightening account of today's U.S. health care system, explaining why it costs so much more and delivers so much less than the systems of every other advanced country, why this situation is morally indefensible, and how we might improve it. The problem, Reinhardt says, is not one of economics but of social ethics. There is no American political consensus on a fundamental question other countries settled long ago: to what extent should we be our brothers' and sisters' keepers when it comes to health care? Drawing on the best evidence, he guides readers through the chaotic, secretive, and inefficient way America finances health care, and he offers a penetrating ethical analysis of recent reform proposals. At this point, he argues, the United States appears to have three stark choices: the government can make the rich help pay for the health care of the poor, ration care by income, or control costs. Reinhardt proposes an alternative path: that by age 26 all Americans must choose either to join an insurance arrangement with community-rated premiums, or take a chance on being uninsured or relying on a health insurance market that charges premiums based on health status. An incisive look at the American health care system, Priced Out dispels the confusion, ignorance, myths, and misinformation that hinder effective reform.
This title presents today's most easy-to-follow introduction to technical analysis - how it works, and how you can make it work for you. In today's fast-moving investment markets, traders and investors can't help but be curious about the documented success of technical analysis. Yet many find themselves put off by the mathematical density of books on the subject, and are falling back into the spray-and-pray style of investing without giving technical analysis a chance. "Technical Analysis Applications" is a practical and results-oriented introduction to technical analysis and charting. One of the first books to make the topic both cohesive and understandable, this hands-on resource will provide you with: strategies for using technical analysis in every market - stocks, bonds, futures, and currencies; and, explanations of which tools provide the most predictive value in various markets and trading environments.It also provides you with: descriptions of how best to use different types of charts - candlestick, point and figure, line, and bar Not even the best, most knowledgeable trader can make the right call every time, on every trade. But through technical analysis, it is definitely possible to increase your percentage of right calls. Let "Technical Analysis Applications" show you how to make technical analysis a profitable component of your trading program, and give you the tools you need to make accurate choices - instead of hopeful guesses - on every trade you make. Ultra-fast, inexpensive computers and other technological breakthroughs have made technical analysis and the study of price behavior far more accurate and accessible than in the past.But while traders and investors looking for an edge are increasingly turning to chart analysis to increase their market understanding and overall confidence, they must still have a firm underpinning of knowledge if they are to prevent themselves from stumbling into mistakes that have cost dearly in the past. "Technical Analysis Applications" is the one book that every trader should read to understand what technical analysis can do for their investing programs, what it cannot do, and how to use technical analysis and charting to understand and act on market tendencies in a wide variety of situations. Written to help anyone take the guesswork out of the trading day, and replace it with the confidence that comes from understanding what has happened and why, this results-oriented book examines: trends - what they are, why they occur, and how traders can use charts to help identify continuation patterns or reversals.It also examines: chart patterns - what some of the most popular and potentially profitable patterns look like, and what they're trying to tell you about the market; quantitative methods - examination of moving averages, Gann Analysis, Elliot Wave, and other market-proven methods; bullish and bearish signals - how to recognize, distinguish, and act on them in a variety of charting situations; helpful hints and trading tips - guidelines for determining the best mix of tools and techniques for a particular market or trading style. In today's up-and-down financial markets, profit opportunities appear and disappear continuously throughout each trading day.The key to taking advantage of these opportunities is to know they are coming in advance, and the key to this knowledge is to obtain a solid working of modern technical analysis. "Technical Analysis Applications" takes this wide-ranging subject, too often shrouded in double-speak and complex mathematics, and makes it both coherent and practical. Filled with sample charts, examples of actual trades, and in-depth yet understandable descriptions, it will help you develop a more complete understanding of the proven and profitable world of technical analysis.
The Transformation of Wall Street is a comprehensive and insightful historical analysis of the Securities andamp; Exchange Commission from the perspective of a leader in securities regulation. The Transformation of Wall Street offers an in-depth look at the history of the SEC's origins, accomplishments, and failings since its creation in 1934. Each chapter in the book takes historical look at the tenure of the various SEC chairmen. The first edition, published in 1977, covered the SEC through the Nixon-Ford presidential administration. A revised edition was published in 1995, updating the book through 1992. Now, the third edition continues the history until 2001, the end of Arthur Levitt's Chairmanship, with a treatment of auditing issues through the enactment of the Sarbanes-Oxley Act (July 2002). In this revised edition, author Joel Seligman draws on unpublished SEC files and extensive personal interviews to provide a comprehensive examination of the origins, accomplishments, and failings of the SEC and its leaders, from the creation of the SEC in 1934 to the present. The new material, among other things, addresses: The Private Securities Litigation Reform Act, which has had a significant impact on private securities litigation after its passage in 1995 The structure of the securities markets (which are in an important transition because of Electronic Communications Networks; decimalization; international competition; and the continuing evolution to greater institutionalization of our markets as well as the growth of several new products, most recently security futures products) Municipal securities markets (which were largely ignored before the recently resigned Arthur Levitt) Several issues with respect to the accounting profession (most notably auditor independence and the independence of accounting standard-setting boards). In addition, this work focuses on Chairman Levitt, whom the author believes was one of the most accomplished of the post World War II chairs, and had the challenge of being a Chair appointed by a Democratic party president during a period when Republicans controlled both houses of Congress as well as a period of extraordinary ferment in the securities market.

A new, evolutionary explanation of markets and investor behavior Half of all Americans have money in the stock market, yet economists can (TM)t agree on whether investors and markets are rational and efficient, as modern financial theory assumes, or irrational and inefficient, as behavioral economists believe. The debate is one of the biggest in economics, and the value or futility of investment management and financial regulation hangs on the answer. In this groundbreaking book, Andrew Lo transforms the debate with a powerful new framework in which rationality and irrationality coexist "the Adaptive Markets Hypothesis. Drawing on psychology, evolutionary biology, neuroscience, artificial intelligence, and other fields, Adaptive Markets shows that the theory of market efficiency is incomplete. When markets are unstable, investors react instinctively, creating inefficiencies for others to exploit. Lo (TM)s new paradigm explains how financial evolution shapes behavior and markets at the speed of thought "a fact revealed by swings between stability and crisis, profit and loss, and innovation and regulation. An ambitious new answer to fundamental questions about economics and investing, Adaptive Markets is essential reading for anyone who wants to understand how markets really work.

But in recent years he has become alarmed by the vitriol directed at the bankers, traders and executives who keep the wheels of our economy turning.

The global financial crisis in 2008 brought central banking to the centre stage, prompting questions about the role of national central banks and - in Europe - of the multi-country European Central Bank. What can central banks do, and what are their limitations? How have they performed? Currency, Credit and Crisis seeks to provide a coherent perspective on the functions of a central bank in a small country by assessing the way in which Ireland's financial crisis from 2010 to 2013 was handled. Drawing on his experiences as Governor of the Central Bank of Ireland and in research and policy work at the World Bank, Patrick Honohan offers a detailed analytical narrative of the origins of the crisis and of policy makers' conduct during its most fraught moments.
Investors are placing increased emphasis on capital allocation methods to achieve their desired social, environmental and financial objectives, and are targeting investments that not only facilitate economic growth in countries around the world but also do good in terms of aiding human development - from cleaner environments to safer products and better employment practices. At the same time, there is considerable evidence that if companies adhere to ESG (Environment, Social, Governance) standards, they will outperform companies who do not.
But how do individuals - rather than institutional investors - invest using ESG criteria? And just how complex are the procedures? This new book, written by investment guru Mark Mobius and his expert team, is full of entertaining and informative anecdotes from the authors' day-to-day experiences in the world of sustainable investment.
Readers will gain a clearer understanding of what sustainable investment actually means, the positive effects it can have on businesses and societies, what to look for in order to identify sound and sustainable investment opportunities, and how to balance sustainable investing with good returns.
