From a veteran of the trade, a provocative and entertaining voyage into the turbulent heart of modern money that sheds new light on the rise of our threatening and complicated financial system, how money became our adversary, and why finding a new course is crucial to a healthy society. In the not-too-distant past, money was simple. You might have had a bank account and a mortgage, perhaps some basic investments. Wall Street didnt have a reputation for greed and recklessness. That all started to change in the '80s, as our financial systems became increasingly complex, moving beyond the understanding of the general public while impacting our lives in innumerable ways. The financial world began to feel like an enigma - a rogue force working against us, seemingly controlled by no one. From an industry veteran whos had firsthand involvement in the events that shaped modern money, How Money Became Dangerous journeys from the crime-ridden LA jewelry district to the cutthroat Salomon Brothers trading floor, from the high-stakes world of investment banking to the center of the technology boom, capturing the key deals, developments, and players that made the financial world what it is today. The audiobook illuminates the dark, hidden forces of Wall Street and how it has dehumanized and left behind everyday Americans. A fresh and enlightening take on how we reached this point, How Money Became Dangerous also makes the case for why Wall Street needs to be saved, if only to save ourselves.

Look through the internet and what you would find is different gimmicks on the best strategy for making money from the stock market. Some preach the gospel of technical analysis. That is, using past data as an indication of things to come. Others simply believe that it is impossible to beat the market. This school of thought believe that one should simply purchase any stock market index then make whatever the market makes.
These approaches and many more are fundamentally flawed for obvious reasons. For technical analysis, past price is never an indication of future market behaviour. So, it is hard to predict what the market would do based on past prices. Also, though there might be some logic to buying an index fund, this is not sustainable as well. There are times when the market simply fails to make profit. Additionally, when inflation is factored in, the profit made from buying market indexes becomes less valuable as the days go by.
What then is the correct way to approach the stock market? The answer is value investing. This approach has been proved over time to be a consistent money maker in the market. Though value investors such as Warren Buffett, we have been shown that this principle can beat the market consistently if followed by a disciplined investor.
This audiobook explores the concept of value investing from a holistic perspective. You would be introduced to the concept and shown how it has developed throw history. You would also be exposed to the fundamentals of value investing and how you can exploit that in your daily investing life. Finally, you would be prepared for a future in investing in value companies.

There's a secret world of investing controlled by angel investors and venture capital. One investment has been the secret of the wealthy for more than 80 years. It accounts for nearly a fifth of the wealth for million-dollar investors and nearly four times the return compared to stocks. Investing in startups has led to an average 27 percent return for wealthy investors, nearly four times the average 7.4 percent annual return on stocks over the decade to 2013. When asked where they invested their money, investors with an average of $7.6 million told BNP Wealth Management those alternative investments like venture capital and startups were their second-largest investment after their own business. Consider Peter Thiel's 2004 investment of $500,000 in Facebook as its first outside investor. By the time the rest of us could invest in Facebook, Thiel had already made $1.7 billion for a 340,000 percent return on his investment. Welcome to the world of startup investing and equity crowdfunding. I've spent nearly a decade analyzing startup investments for venture capital firms and angel investors. I set up the research department for one venture capital investor and managed a team of six analysts, poring over pitch material and market research to find the best startups in which to invest. Investing in startups is like nothing you've ever seen in the stock market. These companies aren't covered by analysts, and you won't find a P/E value on Yahoo Finance. You won't hear other venture capital investors or angel investors sharing their process or picks on TV either. They don't want you stealing those 27 percent annual returns. That's what this book is all about, using a process I have developed over years as a venture capital analyst to avoid the risks in startup investing and find the best deals. It's not an easy process. It involves research and strategic planning on your part. I'm ready to share it with you if you're ready for the challenge.

In Global Risk Agility and Decision Making, Daniel Wagner and Dante Disparte, two leading authorities in global risk management, make a compelling case for the need to bring traditional approaches to risk management and decision-making into the 21st century. Based on their own deep and multifaceted experience in risk management across numerous firms in dozens of countries, the authors call for a greater sense of urgency from corporate boards, decision makers, line managers, policymakers, and risk practitioners to address and resolve the plethora of challenges facing today's private and public sector organizations. Set against the era of man-made risk, where transnational terrorism, cyber risk, and climate change are making traditional risk models increasingly obsolete, they argue that remaining passively on the side-lines of the global economy is dangerous, and that understanding and actively engaging the world is central to achieving risk agility. Their definition of risk agility taps into the survival and risk-taking instincts of the entrepreneur while establishing an organizational imperative focused on collective survival. The agile risk manager is part sociologist, anthropologist, psychologist, and quant. Risk agility implies not treating risk as a cost of doing business, but as a catalyst for growth. Wagner and Disparte bring the concept of risk agility to life through a series of case studies that cut across industries, countries and the public and private sectors. The rich, real-world examples underscore how once mighty organizations can be brought to their knees - and even their demise by simple miscalculations or a failure to just do the right thing. The listener is offered deep insights into specific risk domains that are shaping our world, including terrorism, cyber risk, climate change, and economic resource nationalism, as well as a frame of reference from which to think about risk management and decision making in our increasingly complicated world. This easily digestible audiobook will shed new light on the often complex discipline of risk management. Listeners will learn how risk management is being transformed from a business prevention function to a values-based framework for thriving in increasingly perilous times. From tackling governance structures and the tone at the top to advocating for greater transparency and adherence to value systems, this audiobook will establish a new generation of risk leader, with clarion voices calling for greater risk agility. The rise of agile decision makers coincides with greater resilience and responsiveness in the era of man-made risk.

A major work of financial theory and practice with immediate relevance to the rebuilding of the economy and restoring the promise of equality. When the government decides to spend money, it simply creates the necessary funds for itself - as if out of thin air. That's how we pay for interstate highways, post offices, wars, social services, and economic stimulus packages. If it's that easy to make money...can't we all get more of it? Absolutely. And we should. So argue financial regulation expert Robert Hockett and best-selling philosopher Aaron James in this eye-opening, irreverent, and inspiring exploration of what the dollar really is. And better still, they show how we can build an economy that works for everybody without unwanted taxes and added regulations. In the process, we learn how disingenuous the political rhetoric surrounding inflation can be, how the demonized concept of the deficit is really just another way of tallying our collective national wealth, and how a strong central bank could free us from the abuses of private banking. With broad historical background and ambitious yet practical institutional proposals, Hockett and James offer a new vision of public finance - people's banking for a people's economy. Armed with this new outlook, we can even stop worrying debt and learn to love a strong, accountable, and transparent Federal Reserve as a cornerstone of our democracy.
