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.

    This book is born of my desire to summon us to be leaders for this time as things fall apart, to reclaim leadership as a noble profession that creates possibility and humaneness in the midst of increasing fear and turmoil.  I know it is possible for leaders to use their power and influence, their insight and compassion, to lead people back to an understanding of who we are as human beings, to create the conditions for our basic human qualities of generosity, contribution, community and love to be evoked no matter what. I know it is possible to experience grace and joy in the midst of tragedy and loss.  I know it is possible to create islands of sanity in the midst of wildly disruptive seas.  I know it is possible because I have worked with leaders over many years in places that knew chaos and breakdown long before this moment. And I have studied enough history to know that such leaders always arise when they are most needed.  Now it's our turn.

    During World War II, hundreds of thousands of prisoners were worked to death by the Nazis under a brutal system of slave labor in the concentration camps. By 1942, this vast network of slavery extended across all of German-occupied Europe, but the whole operation was run by a surprisingly small staff of bureaucrats--no more than 200 engineers and managers who worked in the Business Administration Main Office of the SS. Their projects included designing and constructing the concentration camps and gas chambers, building secret underground weapons factories, and brokering slave laborers to private companies such as Volkswagen and IG Farben.  
     
    The Business of Genocide powerfully contradicts the assumption that the SS forced slavery upon the German economy, demonstrating that instead industrialists actively sought out the Business Administration Main Office as a valued partner in the war economy. Moreover, while the bureaucrats who oversaw Holocaust operations have often been seen as technocrats or simple "cogs in the machinery," the book reveals their ideological dedication, even fanatical devotion, to slavery and genocide in the name of National Socialism.

    Technical analysis is the study of price trends in the financial markets over time, in order to predict future trends, using mainly statistical and graphical methods.
    In a broad sense is that theory analysis (ie set of principles and tools) that you can predict the future trend of the price of an asset quoted (real or financial), by studying its past history and is used for the definition of decisions trading.
    Technical analysis aims to analyze and understand, through the analysis of the graph, the trend of prices, which in turn reflects the decisions of investors and is based on the fundamental that because investor behavior repeats over time, subject to certain conditions graphic, also prices will move accordingly.
    Originally analysis technique was applied only to the stock market.
    Its spread has been gradually extended to the commodity market, to bonds, to that currency and other international markets.
    The main task of technical analysis is therefore that of identifying a change of the trend at an early stage, while maintaining an investment position until there is evidence that the same trend has reversed again.
