The Meltdown Years: The Unfolding of the Global Economic Crisis
The Meltdown Yearsoffers the most lucid and useful explanation todate about why home values, life savings, jobsecurity, and investments around the worldare in peril. Rather than focus on who is to blame,though, author Wolfgang Munchau takes themore practical approach of focusing on what isto blame. The fact that individuals were stupid,greedy, and corrupt should come as no surprise.What's remarkable is that our world'sfinancial systems-put in place to help staveoff such a crisis-failed so miserably. What is inherently wrong with the globalmonetary system? What happened to theregulatory process? What role did the creditmarket, hedge funds, and investment banksplay? These are the types of questions onemust answer in order to truly comprehendwhat caused the meltdown and, more importantly,to understand what must be done torepair it. Munchau dissects the global financial system,exposing its flaws and weaknesses in thecontext of the crisis. A decidedly global perspectiveof the greatest financial crisis of ourtime, The Meltdown Years examines The structure of the worldbanking system Global events that led tofinancial collapse The growth of speculative bubbles The descent from financial crisisinto full-out recession Pointing to an unstable global economicsystem as the root of the problem, theauthor predicts how long the recession willand illustrates long-term consequences ofthe meltdown. Apportioning [individual] blame for thiscrisis may be fun, Munchau writes, butit is a dead-end road for anyone who seeksan understanding of what happened. AIG,Alan Greenspan, Fannie Mae, Bear Stearns...Each is portrayed as a villain responsible forthe state of the economy. In truth, the blame ismuch broader and lies much deeper. The Meltdown Years is required readingfor anyone who wants to follow the ongoingdebate about economic recovery and understandwhat the collapse means for the future offinancial capitalism.

***Includes critical text updates made in 2016*** Finally, a simple and easy way to tackle the toughest topic of all...MONEY. It's the taboo topic nobody wants to broach, the elephant in everyone's living room. Not surprisingly, talking about money is a major cause of strife in U.S. households today. Planning for a family's future often prompts a total breakdown in communication, causing lasting damage. Research indicates that a staggering 70 percent of heirs lose their money, assets, and family harmony in the aftermath of estate transfers. This brilliant new book is about to change all that. Radio personality and financial advisor Lori Sackler has devoted her professional career to solving the financial problems plaguing families today. Here she introduces a set of groundbreaking tools for anyone who needs to discuss money with loved ones. She shows families how to communicate about money matters through all of life's transitions--changes in financial circumstances, remarriage and merging families, retirement, preparing heirs, and transferring wealth. The M Word will literally change the way your family views, spends, and transfers assets, wealth, and family values. You'll learn how to approach the thorniest of subjects without anxiety or stress, and your family will reap the benefits of secure financial planning for generations to come. Using the author's five-step action plan to successfully prepare for, initiate, and execute the money talk, you'll be able to: Understand why the money talk is crucial and challenging for familiesTackle the issues that accompany wealth transfers and life's transitionsOvercome the roadblocks that can keep families from communicatingPrepare yourself and your family--logistically and psychologically--for the money talkCreate a process for repeated talk that can keep your family and finances intact The M Word shows you and your family how to negotiate all aspects of financial planning for all generations--without stress or worry. Praise for The M Word [M]akes a compelling argument for having 'the money talk.' -- The New York Times Lori Sackler's advice on overcoming the money taboo will not only help families successfully transfer wealth and deal with all of life's transitions, but actually become happier in the process. -- Shawn Achor, author of the international bestseller The Happiness Advantage Lori Sackler masterfully delivers honest, timeless, and highly useful guidance that will help investors and their families successfully navigate crucial life transitions and financial decisions. -- David M.

50 rules for beating the street in any market conditions. The go-to stock-investing guide for more than a decade, Stock Market Rules gives you the knowledge and clarity you need to invest like the wizards of Wall Street. This proven guide reveals the unwritten rules on which Wall Street investors have long relied to help you draw outsized profits even in volatile markets. Stock Market Rules, Fourth Edition, analyzes 50 maxims to show you which ones work, which ones used to work but don't anymore, and which ones are, and always have been, dangerously wrong. Examples include: rule number 6: It's Always a Bull Market - There will always be a long-term buying bias to the stock market because if there isn't, the market will cease to exist, Sheimo writes; rule number 22: Buy the Stock That Splits - After explaining the mechanics of a stock split and reviewing post-split behavior of specific stocks, Sheimo determines that a split alone is no reason to buy a stock; and rule number 48: There's Always a Santa Claus Rally - There is a repetitive tendency of the stock market to rally between the months of November and December, Sheimo says. An investor can take advantage of such rallies. Stock Market Rules provides market-proven techniques and insights that will dramatically improve your investing knowledge, confidence, and results.

Risk Management
This is the all-in-one banker's and financial manager's guide for implementing and using an effective risk management program. In today's world of multibillion-dollar credit losses and bailouts, it has become increasingly imperative for corporate and banking leaders to monitor and manage risk on all fronts. Risk Management introduces and explores the latest financial and hedging techniques in use around the world, and provides the foundation for creating an integrated, consistent, and effective risk management strategy.The tested and comprehensive analysis and insights in Risk Management give bankers and financial managers all the necessary information for: Risk Management Overview - from the history of risk management to the new regulatory and trading environment, a look at risk management past and present; Risk Management Program Design - techniques to organize the risk management function, and design a system to cover your organization's many risk exposures; and, Risk Management Implementation - how to use the myriad systems and products value at risk (VaR), stress-testing, derivatives, and more for measuring and hedging risk in today's marketplace. In the financial world, the need for a dedicated risk management framework is a relatively recent phenomenon. But as the Long-Term Capital Management and BankAmerica crises attest, lack of up-to-date knowledge concerning its many components can be devastating.For financial managers in both the banking and business environments, Risk Management will introduce and illustrate the many aspects of modern risk management and strengthen every financial risk management program. Exploding global competition, increasing regulations, and the ever-changing product mix of innovative, intricate derivative and securitization products have pushed risk management to the forefront of today's financial landscape. Corporate and banking executives trying to make sense of this environment often find themselves wasting valuable time searching for details and actually creating risk through innocent misinterpretations or misguided hedging strategies. Risk Management consolidates the entire field of corporate risk administration from data and technological infrastructure to investment and hedging strategies that include innovative derivatives credit risk securitization techniques into one all-inclusive, easily accessible reference.Michel Crouhy, Dan Galai, and Robert Mark, seasoned finance professionals with an unmatched breadth of experience covering banking, corporate, and academic risk management applications walk you through risk management with the focus on concrete, results-oriented tips and analysis. The result is, quite frankly, the only reference you'll need for a quick, thorough understanding of today's complex financial risk management challenges.Look to the expert analysis and proven suggestions in Risk Management for a no-nonsense overview of: Integrated Risk Management - how to understand and develop the necessary tools for measuring and managing all of your firm's risk in terms of a common unit; Regulatory Environment - group of 30 (G-30) policy recommendations, BIS 1998 models, and the standardized approach proposed by the Basle Committee; Market Risk- new rules set by the SEC for traded companies to disclose their risk management policies and quantify their exposure to market risk; Practical Measurement Issues - utilizing historical, implied, and stochastic models to measure volatility, plus helpful summaries of measuring correlations and the yield curve; and, Future Considerations - expected conditions and effects of the BIS 2000+ Accord, with review of the G-12 recommendations to improve counter party risk management practices. Never before have the fields of banking and corporate financial risk management been as complicated and the stakes as unyielding. Whether used as an essential resource for institutional financial risk management, a comprehensive text for courses concentrating on bank risk management, or simply as an unprecedented reference covering every important aspect of the discipline, Risk Management will bring you up-to-date on an area that promises to increase in importance as we enter the uncharted waters of the 21st century.

The First-Time Investor offers real-world investment applications in an understandable way' - Jack Canfield, coauthor, Chicken Soup for the Soul (number 1 New York Times bestseller).The first two editions of The First-Time Investor steered clear of Wall Street sales gibberish to reveal proven methods for building and protecting wealth in the stock market. Now, the third edition of this no-nonsense guide updates that message - telling you what you need to know, explaining why you need to know it, and providing real-life examples of what could happen to you if you choose to ignore it in today's fast-action markets.As valuable for market veterans as it is for investors just getting their feet wet, this blueprint of how the market really works reveals: six investment principles every broker should tell you; top ten techniques for protecting your 401(k); easy-to-understand asset allocation strategies for greater return at lower risk; and, far too many of today's investment books fill novice investors with bogus advice and unsupported claims. Let The First-Time Investor cut through that noise and clutter to show you how to build a solid fortune in the market without breaking a sweat.
