Summary

“Do we really need yet another book about the financial crisis? Yes, we do—because this one is different….A must-read for anyone who wants to understand the mess we’re in.”—Paul Krugman, New York Times Book Review “Fox makes business history thrilling.”—St. Louis Post-Dispatch A lively history of ideas, The Myth of the Rational Market by former Time Magazine economics columnist Justin Fox, describes with insight and wit the rise and fall of the world’s most influential investing idea: the efficient markets theory. Both a New York Times bestseller and Notable Book of the Year—longlisted for the Financial Times Business Book of the Year Award and named one of Library Journal Best Business Books of the Year—The Myth of the Rational Market carries readers from the earliest days of Wall Street to the current financial crisis, debunking the long-held myth that the stock market is always right in the process while intelligently exploring the replacement theory of behavioral economics.

    Forex Trading is one of the easiest businesses a man can set up. It does not require much start-up capital like you would if you are to establish a physical business. With a good device like a laptop or tablet, internet connection and a good broker, you can start with as low as $100. You may ask if Forex is that easy, why is everyone not making it in Forex? 
    The truth is Forex works and is one of the easiest means to make money online only if you have a trading edge. If you ask most people who lost money what did you trade? Why did you trade this set up? They will not be able to clearly define their trading edge and what they see before placing their trade. 
    To succeed in Forex trading, you need to acquire the right skills, developed your confidence through demo trading and knows the right trading strategy that suits your personality. 
    Forex is not about pulling the trigger when you see a big move; you need to have a TRADING EDGE. A Trading edge is what defines if you will succeed in this business or not. Your trading edge is the signals you are looking for in the market that will inform you when to buy and when to sell. 
    This book is written to fill the gap by giving you the right trading edge that will help you to trade profitably in the market. If you have been trading before and you barely break even, or you are a beginner in the Forex business, I strongly believe implementing the strategies as explained in the chapters of the book will help you to realize your dream of making a success of Forex business. This trading edge works in all market and in all time frames. 
    This book teaches you step by step how you can trade profitably without much knowledge of advance Forex techniques and still make money from the Forex market.

    Speculation Trading and Bubbles

    The history of financial markets is full of moments in which asset prices inflate far beyond their intrinsic value. These events are commonly called bubbles, and in this book, José A. Scheinkman and other top economists offer new explanations for this phenomenon.  Scheinkman discusses some stylized facts concerning bubbles, such as high trading volume and the coincidence between bubbles’ implosion and increases in supply, and he develops a model for bubbles based on differences in beliefs among investors that explains these observations. Sandy Grossman and Patrick Bolton offer commentaries on Scheinkman’s work, investigating factors that contribute to bubbles, such as excessive leverage, overconfidence, mania, and panic in speculative markets. Kenneth J. Arrow and Joseph E. Stiglitz add introductory material contextualizing Scheinkman’s findings.
