"Central banks and institutions like the IMF and the World Bank are overstepping the boundaries of their mandates by using the flow of money to control global markets and dictate economic policy both at the domestic and global level. These public institutions have become so dependent on funding from private banking and the revolving door between the two worlds is so smooth that public and private banks are effectively working toward the same goals. Packed with bold-faced names from the world of finance--from Janet Yellen, Mario Draghi, and Ben Bernanke to Christine Lagarde and Angela Merkel--Collusion sheds a bright light on the dark conspiracies and unsavory connections between what is ostensibly private and public banking and how it affects us"-- Provided by publisher.

Meet the Frugalwoods : achieving financial independence through simple living

College grad seeks meaningful, gainful employment, fails -- My year of food stamps and billionaires -- The tumblers of adulthood -- A different kind of grindstone -- That one time we bought a house -- Our watershed coffee shop conversation: a dream is hatched -- Our first month of extreme frugality -- Less makeup, more confidence -- What is financial independence anyway? -- Turns out, frugality is about more than money. Much more. -- Fighting back against the baby-industrial complex -- That one time we bought a homestead -- Birth: something that never goes according to plan -- The busiest four months of our lives -- Our third way -- Smoothing out the happiness curve.
"In 2014, Liz Thames and her husband, Nate, were conventional young urban professionals working nine-to-five jobs. But the rat race had worn them down, and they dreamed of becoming modern-day homesteaders in rural Vermont. Determined to retire as early as possible in order to start living each day--as opposed to wishing time away working for the weekends--they enaceted a plan to save as much money as they could. In less than three years, Liz and Nate reached their goal. Today they are financially independent and living out their dream with their young daughters on a sixty-six acre homestead in the woods of Vermont. In this rural setting, they've discovered the deep joy of pursuing their passions, the fulfillment of a vibrant community, and a sense of peace they never expected. Their frugal methods, as described by Liz Thames in this book, aren't born of deprivation and hardship, but rather of a conscious decision to joyfully live below one's means. Thames believes frugality isn't about what you're giving up, but about what you stand to gain through the freedom of a financially secure lifestyle. Through embracing wholesale frugality, Thames discovered the self-confidence and liberation that stem from disavowing our culture's promise that we can buy our way to 'the good life.' She unlocked the freedom of a life no longer beholden to the clarion call to consume ever more. 'Meet the Frugalwoods' is the inspiring story of how Liz and Nate realized that the mainstream path wasn't for them, crafted a lifestyle of sustainable frugality, and reached financial independence. While not everyone wants to live in the woods or quit their jobs, many of us want to have more control over our time and our money, and to lead more meaningful, fulfilling lives. By following Thames' advice, you too can live your best life." -- Dust jacket.

Money is emotional : prevent your heart from hijacking your wallet

Part one. The battle for your money begins in your mind -- Part two. The budget: your key to financial health -- Part three. Living debt free -- Part four. Emotionally charged saving -- Part five. Love & money -- Part six. The road ahead.
"If money is emotional, then why do we persist in trying to manage our personal finances logically? We already know what it takes to become financially healthy: spend less than we make, pay down our debt, and save more money. Money management books, tools, and techniques abound, yet most of us don't utilize them. Maybe you've adopted the practice of ignoring money problems until they are barreling down on you like a tidal wave, as I once did. I know what it feels like to be drowning financially. I'd like to propose a better alternative, one that doesn't require you to eat beans and rice or to spend hours updating budget spreadsheets. My approach to personal finance is called "Mindful Money Management." It is unique in that it harnesses the power of your emotions, so they can propel you forward like a rocket booster towards your Preferred Financial Destination. Yes, money is emotional, but you can prevent your heart from hijacking your wallet. Let me show you how." --page 4 of cover.

"The most comprehensive insider's look at what every consumer needs to know about their credit score--and most importantly, how to fix it. If you, like so many millions of Americans, are terrified by the daily headlines regarding Equifax and identity theft, and how all of this can directly affect your basic credit score, then this book should be considered as mandatory reading. Like it or not, a healthy credit score is essential if you want to participate in today's financial world. But very few people actually understand how their credit score is determined. Worse yet, most don't know how their score is used by all kinds of companies and banks to dictate financial terms that will strongly affect their daily lives. When consumers interact with the world of credit, they do so from a position of weakness. In Your Score, Anthony Davenport aims to change that. Finally, here is a road map for navigating the confusing world of consumer credit. Drawing on the real stories of his own firm's high-profile clients, as well as the stories of middle-class Americans, he reveals the hidden credit pitfalls that await even the most careful consumer and shares smart strategies to avoid them. An accessible but detailed manual, Your Score finally lets readers take control of their credit score, understand how to play the game, and gain an insider's knowledge of how to better navigate the most important financial decisions of their lives"-- Provided by publisher.
