    This Crisis Was Foreseeable … Thousands of Years Ago

    We’ve known for 5,000 years that mass spying on one’s own people is always aimed at grabbing power and crushing dissent, not protecting us from bad guys.

    Something to read-ava.jpg


    We’ve known for 4,000 years that debts need to be periodically written down, or the entire economy will collapse. And see this.

    We’ve known for 2,500 years that prolonged war bankrupts an economy.

    We’ve known for 2,000 years that wars are based on lies.

    We’ve known for 1,900 years that runaway inequality destroys societies.

    We’ve known for thousands of years that debasing currencies leads to economic collapse.

    We’ve known for millennia that torture is a form of terrorism.

    We’ve known for thousands of years that – when criminals are not punished – crime spreads.

    We’ve known for hundreds of years that the failure to punish financial fraud destroys economies, as it destroys all trust in the financial system.

    We’ve known for centuries that monopolies and the political influence which accompanies too much power in too few hands are dangerous for free markets.

    We’ve known for hundreds of years that companies will try to pawn their debts off on governments, and that it is a huge mistake for governments to allow corporate debt to be backstopped by government.

    We’ve known for centuries that powerful people – unless held to account – will get together and steal from everyone else.

    We’ve known for hundreds of years that standing armies and warmongering harm Western civilization.

    We’ve known for 200 years that allowing private banks to control credit creation eventually destroys the nation’s prosperity.

    We’ve known for two centuries that a fiat money system – where the money supply is not pegged to anything real – is harmful in the long-run.

    We’ve known for 200 years that a two-party system quickly becomes corrupted.

    We’ve known for over a century that torture produces false and useless information.

    We’ve known since the 1930s Great Depression that separating depository banking from speculative investment banking is key to economic stability. See this, and 80 years that inflation is a hidden tax.

    We’ve known for 79 years that war is a racket that benefits the elites but harms everyone else.

    We’ve known since 1988 that quantitative easing doesn’t work to rescue an ailing economy.

    We’ve known since 1993 that derivatives such as credit default swaps – if not reined in – could take down the economy. And see this.

    We’ve known since 1998 that crony capitalism destroys even the strongest economies, and that economies that are capitalist in name only need major reforms to create accountability and competitive markets.

    We’ve known since 2007 or earlier that lax oversight of hedge funds could blow up the economy.

    And we knew before the 2008 financial crash and subsequent bailouts that:
    • The easy credit policy of the Fed and other central banks, the failure to regulate the shadow banking system, and “the use of gimmicks and palliatives” by central banks hurt the economy
    • Anything other than (1) letting asset prices fall to their true market value, (2) increasing savings rates, and (3) forcing companies to write off bad debts “will only make things worse”
    • Bailouts of big banks harm the economy
    • The Fed and other central banks were simply transferring risk from private banks to governments, which could lead to a sovereign debt crisis

    Lessons from the Greatest Stock Traders of All Time

    The trading strategies of legends Jesse Livermore, Bernard Baruch, Gerald Loeb, and more provide ways to triumph in the market

    Something to read-book1.png


    Today's bookshelves are so laden with Johnny-come-lately experts, eager to sell their knowledge to any and all, that it's sometimes hard for traders to know which way to turn or whom to trust. Lessons from the Greatest Stock Traders of All Time makes the choice simple, examining the careers of five traders--Jesse Livermore, Bernard Baruch, Gerald Loeb, Nicolas Darvas, and Bill O'Neil--who, more than any others over the past century, demonstrated tremendous success at conquering Wall Street.
    This technique-filled book presents numerous ways in which the timeless strategies of these investing icons can be used to tame today's high-speed, unforgiving marketplaces. Comparing and contrasting the successes--and occasional failures--of these five giants of finance, it reveals:

    • What Jesse Livermore did to correctly call every market break between 1917 and 1940
    • How Bill O'Neil stuck to basics to create his famously effective CANSLIM system
    • The strategies Nicolas Darvas used to become a self-made millionaire several times over

    Value Investing: From Graham to Buffett and Beyond

    Value Investing: From Graham to Buffett and Beyond
    by Bruce C. N. Greenwald (Author), Judd Kahn (Author), Paul D. Sonkin (Author) and Michael van Biema (Author)


    Something to read-buffet.jpg


    From the "guru to Wall Street's gurus" comes the fundamental techniques of value investing and their applications Bruce Greenwald is one of the leading authorities on value investing. Some of the savviest people on Wall Street have taken his Columbia Business School executive education course on the subject. Now this dynamic and popular teacher, with some colleagues, reveals the fundamental principles of value investing, the one investment technique that has proven itself consistently over time. After covering general techniques of value investing, the book proceeds to illustrate their applications through profiles of Warren Buffett, Michael Price, Mario Gabellio, and other successful value investors. A number of case studies highlight the techniques in practice.

    Bruce C. N. Greenwald (New York, NY) is the Robert Heilbrunn Professor of Finance and Asset Management at Columbia University. Judd Kahn, PhD (New York, NY), is a member of Morningside Value Investors. Paul D. Sonkin (New York, NY) is the investment manager of the Hummingbird Value Fund. Michael van Biema (New York, NY) is an Assistant Professor at the Graduate School of Business, Columbia University.

    Customer reviews:

    "This book deserves a place on every serious investor’s shelf."
    –FINANCIAL TIMES

    "A must-read for all disciples of value investing. In 1934, Graham and Dodd created fundamental security analysis. Greenwald reinforces the worth of this approach, incorporates new advances, and takes their work into the twenty-first century."

    –Mario J. Gabelli, Chairman, Gabelli Asset Management, Inc.

    "The new title most deserving of your time is Value Investing . . . . Its authors aim to place their work next to Benjamin Graham’s 1950 classic, The Intelligent Investor. My 1986 edition came with Warren Buffett’s endorsement–‘by far the best book on investing ever written.’ Value Investing is better."
    –Robert Barker, BusinessWeek

    "Greenwald is an economist (PhD from MIT) who caught the value bug. He has updated and expanded Graham’s ideas, and his summer seminars ($2,900 for two days) have become popular with everyone from well-known money managers to Columbia MBAs who couldn’t get into Greenwald’s class. But now there is a cheaper way . . . Greenwald probably won’t outsell Graham, but I think he ought to."
    –Paul Sturm, SmartMoney magazine

    "Greenwald’s book is a lively defense of, and handbook for, value investing, complete with glimpses of how it’s practiced by pros like Warren Buffett and Mario Gabelli."
    –George Mannes, TheStreet.com

    "Essential reading for anyone looking for a fresh perspective on analyzing companies and selecting investments."
    –Pat Dorsey, Morningstar.com
