Our cities are changing. Global real estate is now a $217 trillion dollar industry, 36 times the value of all the gold ever mined. It makes up 60 percent of the world's assets, and the most powerful person in the world - the president of the United States - made his name as a landlord and real estate developer. As Samuel Stein makes clear in this tightly argued book, its through this seemingly innocuous profession of city planners that we can best understand the transformations underway. Planners provide a window into the practical dynamics of urban change: the way the state uses and is used by organized capital, and the power of landlords and developers at every level of government. But crucially, planners also possess the powers we must leverage if we ever wish to reclaim our cities.

The irreverent guide to investing, Boglehead style The Boglehead's Guide to Investing is a DIY handbook that espouses the sage investment wisdom of John C. Bogle. This witty and wonderful book offers contrarian advice that provides the first step on the road to investment success, illustrating how relying on typical "common sense" promoted by Wall Street is destined to leave you poorer. This updated edition includes new information on backdoor Roth IRAs and ETFs as mainstream buy and hold investments, estate taxes and gifting, plus changes to the laws regarding Traditional and Roth IRAs, and 401k and 403b retirement plans. With warnings and principles both precisely accurate and grandly counterintuitive, the Boglehead authors show how beating the market is a zero-sum game. Investing can be simple, but it's certainly not simplistic. Over the course of twenty years, the followers of John C. Bogle have evolved from a loose association of investors to a major force with the largest and most active non-commercial financial forum on the Internet. The Boglehead's Guide to Investing brings that communication to you with comprehensive guidance to the investment prowess on display at Bogleheads.org. You'll learn how to craft your own investment strategy using the Bogle-proven methods that have worked for thousands of investors, and how to: * Choose a sound financial lifestyle and diversify your portfolio * Start early, invest regularly, and know what you're buying * Preserve your buying power, keeping costs and taxes low * Throw out the "good" advice promoted by Wall Street that leads to investment failure Financial markets are essentially closed systems in which one's gain garners another's loss. Investors looking for a roadmap to successfully navigating these choppy waters long-term will find expert guidance, sound advice, and a little irreverent humor in The Boglehead's Guide to Investing.

People tend to be penny wise and pound foolish and cry over spilt milk, even though we are taught to do neither. Focusing on the present at the expense of the future and basing decisions on lost value are two mistakes common to decision-making that are particularly costly in the world of finance. Behavioral Finance: What Everyone Needs to KnowR provides an overview of common shortcuts and mistakes people make in managing their finances. It covers the common cognitive biases or errors that occur when people are collecting, processing, and interpreting information. These include emotional biases and the influence of social factors, from culture to the behavior of one's peers. These effects vary during one's life, reflecting differences in due to age, experience, and gender. Among the questions to be addressed are: How did the financial crisis of 2007-2008 spur understanding human behavior? What are market anomalies and how do they relate to behavioral biases? What role does overconfidence play in financial decision- making? And how does getting older affect risk tolerance?

This book features straightforward stock market strategies that offer exceptional returns and cash flow while substantially reducing market risk. With only minimal extra effort each month, you can do better - a lot better - than buy-and-hold. To earn solid returns while effectively managing risk, millions of investors in whipsaw financial markets have learned that basic option writing strategies can make a dramatic improvement in their investment returns. "Option Writing Strategies for Extraordinary Returns" details put and call writing techniques that investors from conservative to aggressive are using to both generate and protect portfolio profits in bull, bear, and non-trending markets. Whether your goal is to create better-than-average long-term growth or generate better-than-average current income, this timely book provides step-by-step directions you can follow to create a stock option strategy that allows you to: combine the purchase of blue chip stock with the writing of puts and calls on that stock; increase your long position in the future, if the put is exercised, at a fixed price that is guaranteed to be lower than the current price; and, generate significant interest on cash received when you write options. It's not as complex as it sounds; it is, however, proven effective at reducing the risk of owning common stocks. "Option Writing Strategies for Extraordinary Returns" will change the way you look at stock ownership and option writing by combining the two into an effective, all-weather investing program. For too long, individual investors have been inundated with stories on the perils of option buying. Brokers and money managers who passed along these scare stories could hardly be blamed, since more often than not they had never taken the time to understand the profitable merits of writing options. "Option Writing Strategies for Extraordinary Returns" explains, in everyday language and without complex mathematics, how you can use option writing strategies to improve your investment returns while shielding your portfolio from unexpected loss. It explodes the prevailing myth that writing options exposes an investor to unpredictable and unlimited risk by detailing how, when used correctly, option writing is in fact among the most easy-to-use methodologies for shielding your portfolio from such risk. Using tables and charts to illustrate each step, veteran options expert David Funk details an innovative 'three-legged' model that involves the purchase of a stock position and the simultaneous writing of both put and call options with different strike prices on that position. This model reduces the amount of downside risk assumed versus buying stock alone, while allowing you the flexibility to increase your upside potential when you feel circumstances warrant. This well-organized guidebook takes you through an innovative program designed to turn basic put and call option writing into powerful income and capital building tools: Section one covers the basic concepts of covered call and cash-collateralized put writing; Section two explains how to design an investment program focused on capital appreciation; Section three shows how to adjust that program to maximize current income; Section four explores advanced strategies for extending positions, profiting from unusual events, and more; Section 5 shows you how to prepare for, and even profit from, early assignments and other unexpected occurrences; and, Section 6 takes a more in-depth look at the underlying theory of option writing. "Option Writing Strategies for Extraordinary Returns" isn't a get-rich-quick book that promises to double your money each year. What David Funk's book does promise is to introduce you to a commonsense, market-proven investing strategy for making more money than the majority of investors, while providing your portfolio with specific loss limits when the market drops. 'These savvy investors likely outperform 98 percent of all investors over the years' - Yale Hirsch, Founder, "The Stock Trader's Almanac". 'Superbly written...irresistibly clever ways to cope with the market's stubborn refusal to publish an itinerary of the future' - Don Worden, Worden Brothers, Inc., publishers of TeleChart, www.worden.com.

R259 R179 Discovery Miles 1 790 Save R80 (31%) Shipped within 7 - 12 working days

This myth shattering book reveals the methods Nouriel Roubini used to foretell the current crisis before other economists saw it coming and shows how those methods can help us make sense of the present and prepare for the future.
Renowned economist Nouriel Roubini electrified his profession and the larger financial community by predicting the current crisis well in advance of anyone else. Unlike most in his profession who treat economic disasters as freakish once-in?a-lifetime events without clear cause, Roubini, after decades of careful research around the world, realized that they were both probable and predictable. Armed with an unconventional blend of historical analysis and global economics, Roubini has forced politicians, policy makers, investors, and market watchers to face a long-neglected truth: financial systems are inherently fragile and prone to collapse.
Drawing on the parallels from many countries and centuries, Nouriel Roubini and Stephen Mihm, a professor of economic history and a "New York Times Magazine" writer, show that financial cataclysms are as old and as ubiquitous as capitalism itself. The last two decades alone have witnessed comparable crises in countries as diverse as Mexico, Thailand, Brazil, Pakistan, and Argentina. All of these crises-not to mention the more sweeping cataclysms such as the Great Depression-have much in common with the current downturn. Bringing lessons of earlier episodes to bear on our present predicament, Roubini and Mihm show how we can recognize and grapple with the inherent instability of the global financial system, understand its pressure points, learn from previous episodes of "irrational exuberance," pinpoint the course of global contagion, and plan for our immediate future. Perhaps most important, the authors-considering theories, statistics, and mathematical models with the skepticism that recent history warrants- explain how the world's economy can get out of the mess we're in, and stay out.
In Roubini's shadow, economists and investors are increasingly realizing that they can no longer afford to consider crises the black swans of financial history. A vital and timeless book, "Crisis Economics" proves calamities to be not only predictable but also preventable and, with the right medicine, curable.

The world is upside down. The emerging market countries are more important than many investors realise. They have been catching up with the West over the past few decades. Greater market freedom has spread since the end of the Cold War, and with it institutional changes which have further assisted emerging economies in becoming more productive, flexible, and resilient. The Western financial crisis from 2008 has quickened the pace of the relative rise of emerging markets - their relative economic power, and with it political power, but also their financial power as savers, investors and creditors. Emerging Markets in an Upside Down World - Challenging Perceptions in Asset Allocation and Investment argues that finance theory has misunderstood risk and that this has led to poor investment decisions; and that emerging markets constitute a good example of why traditional finance theory is faulty. The book accurately describes the complex and changing global environment currently facing the investor and asset allocator. It raises many questions often bypassed because of the use of simplifying assumptions and models. The narrative builds towards a checklist of issues and questions for the asset allocator and investor and then to a discussion of a variety of regulatory and policy issues. Aimed at institutional and retail investors as well as economics, finance, business and international relations students, Emerging Markets in an Upside Down World covers many complex ideas, but is written to be accessible to the non-expert.
