The age of cryptocurrency : how Bitcoin and digital money are challenging the global economic order

January 26, 2015
Vigna, Paul.
New York, N.Y. : St. Martin's Press, 2015.
357 pages : illustrations ; 25 cm
From Babylon to Bitcoin -- Genesis -- Community -- Roller coaster -- Building the blockchain -- The arms race -- Satoshi's mill -- The unbanked -- The everything blockchain -- Square peg meets round hole -- A new new economy.
"Bitcoin became a buzzword overnight. A cyber-enigma with an enthusiastic following, it pops up in headlines and fuels endless media debate. You can apparently use it to buy anything from coffee to cars, yet few people seem to truly understand what it is. This raises the question: Why should anyone care about Bitcoin? In The Age of Cryptocurrency, Wall Street journalists Paul Vigna and Michael J. Casey deliver the definitive answer to this question. Cybermoney is poised to launch a revolution, one that could reinvent traditional financial and social structures while bringing the world's billions of "unbanked" individuals into a new global economy. Cryptocurrency holds the promise of a financial system without a middleman, one owned by the people who use it and one safeguarded from the devastation of a 2008-type crash. But Bitcoin, the most famous of the cybermonies, carries a reputation for instability, wild fluctuation, and illicit business; some fear it has the power to eliminate jobs and to upend the concept of a nation-state. It implies, above all, monumental and wide-reaching change-- for better and for worse. But it is here to stay, and you ignore it at your peril. Vigna and Casey demystify cryptocurrency-- its origins, its function, and what you need to know to navigate a cyber-economy. The digital currency world will look very different from the paper currency world; The Age of Cryptocurrency will teach you how to be ready"-- Provided by publisher.

Picture your prosperity : smart money moves to turn your vision into reality

January 20, 2015
Rogin, Ellen.
New York, New York : Portfolio / Penguin, 2015.
272 pages, 4 unnumbered pages of plates : color illustrations ; 24 cm
"Based on a hugely successful workshop, this book offers an interactive, enjoyable, motivating plan for women who want to take control of their finances and feel secure about the things that matter most to them. Too often, financial advice jumps right to the minutiae of investments, skipping over the deeper questions of what people really want from their money, both now and in the future. Ellen Rogin and Lisa Kueng teach their clients and workshop audiences to do the opposite. First, people need to think deeply about their short-term and long-term goals, whether they're as practical as paying for college and setting up a retirement plan or as aspirational as buying a sailboat and traveling the world. Only then should people start considering their investment options. Rogin and Kueng provide a clear, seven-step process for envisioning goals, designing a customized plan, and breaking the plan into manageable steps"-- Provided by publisher.

Ramsey debunks the many myths of money (exposing the dangers of cash advance, rent-to-own, debt consolidation) and attacks the illusions and downright deceptions of the American dream, which encourages nothing but overspending and massive amounts of debt. "Don't even consider keeping up with the Joneses," Ramsey declares in his typically candid style. "They're broke!" This book isn't theory. It works every single time. It works because it is simple. It works because it gets to the heart of the money problems: you"--Publisher's description.
