Investments (6th Edition)Getting Into Forex | Getting Into Forex
I’ve read a lot of popular books about investing. Some of them were helpful in introducing me to investing in general. I decided, however, that I wanted a more thorough knowledge of the subject. I bought “The Portable MBA in Investment” by Peter Bernstein and found it utterly incomprehensible. If I wanted to be well-grounded in investing, this was unacceptable. I borrowed Sharpe’s text from the library and have been blasting through it for the past few days. It isn’t an easy text; anyone who wants to tackle the subject should have some background in math and statistics. And I would ... market research, surveys and trends

The meat of the book is based on practical experience, not just things that seem right to the author, but things he has tried, and generally with success What I don’t like about this book: * $95, this should be a $25 list book available for $15 on Amazon and $9.99 Kindle * Sloppy argument and editing, to the point that some passages are not intelligible (doubly annoying in view of the first criticism) * Lack of appreciation for other people’s thought, which leads to missing useful links An example of the sloppiness (and there are many) is on page 21, “The key to the portfolio approach is the variance of two ... market research, surveys and trends

Technology Council pushes for 'bold action'
Seen from the proverbial fly-over states of the Midwest, California often arouses envy with its legions of venture capitalists who foster a profusion of Golden State start-ups. And if one priority tops the wish list for Wisconsin's innovation economy, according to the Wisconsin Technology Council, it's to do whatever is possible to connect Badger State entrepreneurs with fresh infusions of investment. The nonprofit advisory group has released a lengthy list of policy prescriptions for Wisconsin, timed ahead of November's gubernatorial and legislative elections. The Madison-based technology council also is ... market trends, news research and surveys resources
The confidence game
When the private market fears that the government is running high deficits that it won't be able to repay, interest rates rise. It's the market's way of charging us for the increased risk. But interest rates on U.S. debt are not rising. That's a problem for people who think the deficit is a major issue: You're asking the government to go on a diet, but at the moment, it's not gaining any weight, and is in fact losing some. So we're seeing the rise of a new argument: Companies and consumers aren't spending because they're scared off by government borrowing.

Theory of Investment
"If only we knew more about the determinants of investment! But, unfortunately, our knowledge in this direction is still very meager. One might well ask, What is wrong with the theory of investment? Or, perhaps, What is wrong with the subject matter itself! For one thing, this variable, -- the pivot of modern macroeconomics -- has apparently lived a somewhat nomadic life among the various chapters of economic theory. Perhaps it has not stayed long enough in any one place. Perhaps it has been ill-treated." (Trygve Haavelmo , A Study in the Theory of Investment , 1960: p.3) ...

Google Answers: if you had a million dollars $$$
One the one hand, this seems an easy one. On the other hand, it's hard to know how to make the convincing, numerical case for it. Anyway, take the million and buy yourself a pretty nice house. Real estate is generally a good investment, and these days, seems just as secure (to the extent that investments are ever secure!) as the stock market. But if you buy a house, you actually get something you need and can use, while the value of it (hopefully) increases. With stocks, you just get...stocks! They don't even give you pretty certificates any more. There's no usefulness to them at all, other than ...

is based on the ideas of twentieth-century British economist John Maynard Keynes. According to Keynesian economics the state can stimulate economic growth and improve stability in the private sector - through, for example, interest rates, taxation and public projects. The theories forming the basis of Keynesian economics were first presented in The General Theory of Employment, Interest and Money , published in 1936. In Keynes's theory, some micro-level actions of individuals and firms can lead to aggregate macroeconomic outcomes in which the economy operates below its potential output and growth. Many classical economists ...
