Stalled - Jump-Starting the Canadian Economy

Summary

For the fifty years following the Second World War, Canada enjoyed a period of spectacular economic growth — the economy quadruple in size and the living standard of most Canadians steadily improved.  
 


However, in the years since, Canada has suffered from economic stagnation. Businesses keep closing, and Canadians find it harder to get and keep a good job. Increasingly, Canadians have relied on consumer debt to help mask the underlying problems, but for many even that temporary form of relief is no longer an option. 
 


In Stalled, Michael Hlinka explains what drove Canada's five-decade expansion and what has put us in the rut we're currently in. He also shows that there are solutions for Canada as a country and for individual Canadians, and that we can get out of the rut we're in if we start doing the things that once made us great. Stalled shows how.

    ABOUT THE BOOK
    Albert Einstein was born in 1879. By the time of his death in 1955, the world Einstein was born into would be completely foreign to him. Scientific breakthroughs and advancement over the 76 years of his life permanently changed the world.
    While Einstein was regarded as brilliant by both his contemporaries and predecessors, Einstein had a humble assessment of his mental faculties. 
    Einstein published his theory of relativity in 1905, at the tender age of 26, and years later it was all but validated by the scientific community at large. Yet, the source of his greatest triumph also lead to his greatest sources of consternation.
    MEET THE AUTHOR
    Markkus took a degree in journalism and ran with it, covering topics such as music, technology, business, health and the future for a variety of print and online publications, including Remix, MaximumPC, DJ Tech Tools, Charged EVs, San Francisco Business Times, Philadelphia Weekly, Mac | Life, MacHome, Electronic Musician, and others.
    He likes to make music, funny voices, and people's days. He generally keeps a baseline healthy lifestyle going, and then experiments from there. Other interests include world travel, world shifts, and world non-domination. As a rule, he's more well rounded than he used to be. He's also currently training for a half marathon, and when finished will be halfway proud.

    EXCERPT FROM THE BOOK
    "It is just as important to make knowledge live and to keep it alive as to solve specific problems."
    Contact between the intellectual and the masses must not be lost. It is necessary for the elevation of society and no less so for renewing the strength of the intellectual worker; for the flower of science does not grow in the desert."
    "I am only coming to Princeton to research, not to teach. There is too much education altogether, especially in American schools. The only rational way of educating is to be an example—of what to avoid, if one can’t be the other sort."
    The wonderful things you learn in your schools are the work of many generations, produced by enthusiastic effort and infinite labour in every country of the world. All this is put into your hands as your inheritance in order that you may receive it, honor it, add to it, and one day faithfully hand it on to your children. Thus do we mortals achieve immortality in the permanent things which we create in common."

    When three Boston securities executives pooled their money together in 1924 to create the first mutual fund, they had no idea how popular mutual funds would become. The idea of pooling money together for investing purposes started in Europe in the mid-1800s. The first pooled fund in the U.S. was created in 1893 for the faculty and staff of Harvard University. On March 21st, 1924 the first official mutual fund was born. It was called the Massachusetts Investors Trust. 
    After one year, the Massachusetts Investors Trust grew from $50,000 in assets in 1924 to $392,000 in assets (with around 200 shareholders). In contrast, there are over 10,000  mutual funds in the U.S. today totaling around $7 trillion (with approximately 83 million individual investors) according to the Investment Company Institute.

    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.

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.
