Summary

"Radical thinkers might have a point" - Financial Times
 
 The Greatest Crash argues that the financial system which evolved from the early Italian bankers has now reached a roadblock. The weight of debt already created prevents further economic expansion, while paying down the debt shrinks economies. To escape this trap, evolution is needed. But bureaucratic design, delegated government, and group think, all combine to prevent evolution.

    Part 1 of 2 of Portfolio Management. 
    Many people consider investing to be a daunting activity. They are bewildered by the profusion and proliferation of investment alternatives, rattled by the fluctuations in financial prices, overwhelmed by the presence of mighty institutional investors, confused by exotic instruments and complicated investment strategies, confused by the intricacies of the tax system, and exasperated by the financial scams that periodically rock market. 
    Notwithstanding these concerns, investing can be fairly manageable, rewarding, and enjoyable experience, if we adhere to certain principles and guidelines. By this we can expect and hope to maximize our returns by diversifying our investments into suitable portfolios. For this, each and every investor has to be well educated about economy, investment options, market conditions and its consequences. 
    The main objective is to select the suitable investment criteria like if we want better returns, or consider risk factors, or liquidity or safety of principal. By this we can set our portfolio objectives and construct our portfolio according to our needs and manage it with respect to the market conditions and the securities fairing in the market.

    This book – just like your personal finances – is a journey.  If you want to take control of your financial life, you need to be inspired.  You need the “why”.  Why am I going to spend time and energy on this?  Why am I going to make temporary sacrifices, work harder and skip buying some of the things I want?   
     
    If you can’t answer those questions, don’t buy this book.  In fact, don’t buy any personal finance books and don’t even try to improve your finances.  It all starts with the why.  However, if you have an answer to the why – to retire early, to become financially independent, to help put your kids through school, to save a million dollars – keep reading.     
     
    This book will open your eyes to what’s possible and how to make it possible.  Through ten concise, easy to understand lessons, you’ll be inspired to achieve and you’ll be given the knowledge (along with some tips and tricks) to make it happen.

    1) How to Save a Million Dollars 
    2) Managing Money 
    3) Getting Out of Debt
