The Death Of Capital / Politics / Resources & Reviews

By: Andrew_McKillop

Elite Psychosis Again

Rather predictably, the elite-serving glove puppet media has decided it is right and good at this time to wheel on its handpicked, most obedient and servile journalists to opine about Piketty's new book “Capital”. This coincides with David Stockman's almost triumphant declaration of Greenspan-and-Bernanke's come-uppance Truth Moment (“America's Housing Fiasco Is On You, Alan Greenspan”).

Flash Boys - Why You Need to Read Michael Lewis’ New Exposé / Stock-Markets / Resources & Reviews

By: Money_Morning

Shah Gilani writes: No doubt you’ve heard about Michael Lewis’ new book, “Flash Boys.”

And, no doubt you’ve been hearing more than ever before about the subject of Lewis’ book, High Frequency Trading (HFT).

I ran to Barnes & Noble to buy the book the second I heard about it last week. They didn’t have any copies. So, I ordered it online, which was cheaper anyway.

End of Economic Man Revisited / InvestorEducation / Resources & Reviews

By: Christopher_Quigley

Best Financial Markets Analysis ArticleIn 1939 Peter F. Drucker wrote "The End of Economic Man: The Origins of Totalitarianism". Its publication caused a sensation. When Winston Churchill became prime minister of Great Britain he gave the order to include the book in the kit issued to every graduate of a British Officer's Candidate School. A year previously Churchill had reviewed the publication. It impressed him because he realized that something fundamental had happened in the world with the rise of Fascisms and he wished his officers to understand what they were fighting in Hitler's Germany and Mussolini's Italy.

Every Nation for Itself: Winners and Losers in a G-Zero World / InvestorEducation / Resources & Reviews

By: John_Mauldin

Best Financial Markets Analysis ArticleI recently had a chance to speak at a conference where Dr. Ian Bremmer spoke after me. I was very impressed with his thought process and asked him to give me an outline of his speech to share with you for this week's Outside the Box. It's a shorter version of his powerhouse book, Every Nation for Itself: Winners and Losers in a G-Zero World. I highly recommend it.

And what, you're asking, is a "G-Zero world"? In a word, it's a leaderless world. A world in which, as Bremmer says, "Not so long ago, America, Western Europe and Japan were the world's powerhouses. Today, they're struggling to recover their dynamism…. But nor are rising powers like China, India, Brazil, Turkey, the Gulf Arabs and others ready to take up the slack…. If not the West, the rest, or the institutions where they come together, who will lead? The answer is, no one."

Investing Philosophy Recommended Reading / InvestorEducation / Resources & Reviews

By: Casey_Research

Best Financial Markets Analysis ArticleRobert Ross, Casey Research : We at Casey Research are often asked, "What books have had the biggest impact on your investing philosophy?" To find out, we took a quick, informal poll of our most prominent economists, editors, and analysts to see which books helped form their unique economic outlooks. The books range from mainstays of the political economy, such as Thomas Sowell's A Conflict of Visions, to classics from antiquity, including Plato's The Republic. However, genres often overlooked – like our founder Doug Casey's longtime interest in science fiction – should give current and prospective subscribers a glimpse into the diverse influences that drive our publications.

Rebooting the American Dream / Politics / Resources & Reviews

By: Ian_Fletcher

Best Financial Markets Analysis ArticleThom Hartmann is famous as a liberal commentator on the radio, on TV, and in over a dozen books. But he has written here a book that is of far more than partisan value. Rebooting the American Dream: 11 Ways to Rebuild Our Country will please liberal readers, but it will also challenge them to revisit some of their own lazy beliefs. It will annoy conservatives, but the smarter ones will take notes and absorb some of his trans-partisan insights into their own politics.

23 Things They Don’t Tell You About Capitalism / Politics / Resources & Reviews

By: Ian_Fletcher

Best Financial Markets Analysis ArticleIf you’re not happy with the way the U.S. economy is being run right now, you’ve been pretty much stuck talking to leftists to get any serious in-depth dissidence. With the exception of a few distinguished rightist critics like Paul Craig Roberts, a former Reagan appointee at the Treasury Department, most people who do hard-hitting across-the-board criticism of our present variety of capitalism are liberals and beyond. So if pink isn’t your political color, you’re pretty much stuck with narrow-bore criticism of the recent financial crisis—most of which comes down to “people were stupid and crooked.”

Gods of Money, Wall Street and the Death of the American Century / Politics / Resources & Reviews

By: Reg_Little

Best Financial Markets Analysis ArticleWilliam Engdahl’s latest book is another awesome exploration and explanation of the boldness and failings of Anglo-American global strategy over most of the past century and a half.  Engdahl recalls in his introduction a statement from the 1970’s attributed to then-Secretary of State Henry Kissinger, a protégé of the powerful Rockefeller circles, in which he declared, “If you control the oil, you control entire nations; if you control the food, you control the people; if you control the money, you control the entire world.”

Robustness and Fragility, A Lecture by Dr. Nassim Taleb / Politics / Resources & Reviews

By: Daniel_Bruno

He starts the sold-out presentation with a tale of two readers on a business trip. Settled in for a long flight, Dr. Taleb pulls a book out of his bag while the fellow next to him pulls out the fashionable,expensive, razor thin, 500 book capacity Kindle to pass the time. A conversation ensues and comparisons are made. Common sense and marketing tell us that the Kindle is far more efficient, But Dr. Taleb is not so sure. He has reams of work on 1990s era floppy discs that he can no longer access. But books, the product of technology essentially unchanged in 500 years, present no such problem and will outlast the Kindle when it too becomes obsolete.

The Complete TurtleTrader - Book Review / InvestorEducation / Resources & Reviews

By: Michael_Nystrom

Buy and hold is dead! The extreme market volatility over the last decade should make this abundantly clear to even casual market watchers, but it is something that good traders have known all along: You trade securities, you don't marry them. Buying a stock is not a commitment "until death do you part." A friend once told me the story of a man he knew who worked at Worldcom during the go-go 90's and had his entire 401(k) invested in the company stock. He was waiting for his account to hit $2 million, and then he was going to cash out. It was almost there - $1.8m, $1.9m - something like that when the stock began its terminal decline. Instead of selling, he held on until the bitter end, until all was lost. Moral of the story: The market is the utlimate authority. It does not listen to you, nor care about your dreams & desires, so you had best learn to listen to it.

Brainwashing of the American Investor - Academic Investment Book Reviews / InvestorEducation / Resources & Reviews

By: Steve_Selengut

Steve Selengut's "Brainwashing of the American Investor" is an eye-opening and intelligent book, which offers an analysis of the investment industry and a smart and practical guide to non-professional investors. Selengut is wary of the conventional wisdom of investing professionals, who appear to have abandoned the tried and true principles of investment, in favor of super-hype, organizational conformity, and greed. Selengut's back-to-basics approach builds on his critique of the Wall Street hypsters and their bandwagon mentalities. Instead, he serves up a clear set of economic principles, mixed with sound commonsensical advice.

Best investing books - Reminiscences of a Stock Operator / Stock-Markets / Resources & Reviews

By: Nadeem_Walayat

http://www.certz.com/exam?linux+

$14 (32% discount)

Reminiscences of a Stock Operator' by Edwin Lefèvre is probably one of the best and well known books on the subject of financial speculation, the book was published as the fictional biography of “Larry Livingston,” but is actually an biography of Jesse Livermore, one of the first famous stock & commodity traders ever. The man started trading after working as a boy in a brokerage house and trading in several of the tiny brokerages called “bucket shops” where small time traders would bet against the house, and eventually went on to become one of the most influential and widely-known traders of his day. He made, lost, and re-made millions at a time.

What you will get from the book are some classic mistakes and the lessons learned from them; some of the best catch phrases in the business; insight into how the markets were manipulated then and probably still are now. One of the most important lessons mentioned in the book is that a trader does not have to be invested in the market all the time.

This is the book from which almost every subsequent general trading book is derived. If you have ever wondered where the trading rule "Never average down" came from, just turn to page 154. Where did the comparison between greed and fear first originate ? Look to page 130.
