"Create lasting happiness with your financial situation -- not by building a blistering budget but by living the life you love! Ashley Feinstein Gerstley was working as a top financial advisor when she came to the shocking realization that even she was stressed about her personal finances. How could that be, with all her education and experience in dealing with money? Ashley quickly realized that her stress didn't arise from a lack of knowledge but the way that we as a society treat and talk (or rather don't talk) about our money, and she created a system to turn the entire practice on its head! Through Ashley's system, in just 30 days you will create a healthier, happier relationship with your money by: eliminating all money stressors, finally knowing where your money is going, breaking those panic-inducing bad money habits, learning the basics of how and where to invest, [and] making a plan that you can not only live with but enjoy. Readers who have tried the 30-Day Money Cleanse have, on average, saved over $950 through the course of the month! Are you ready to cleanse?" -- Back cover.

"In 2011, Carmen Segarra took a job as at the Federal Reserve Bank of New York supervising for Goldman Sachs. It was an opportunity, she believed, to monitor the big bank's behavior in order to avoid another financial crisis. Segarra was shocked to discover, however, the full extent of the relationship between Goldman and the Fed. She began making secret recordings that later became the basis of a This American Life episode that exposed the Fed's ineffectiveness in holding banks accountable. In Noncompliant, Segarra chronicles her experience blowing open the doors on the relationship between the big banks and the government bodies set up to regulate them. As we mark the tenth anniversary of the 2008 financial crisis, Noncompliant shows us how little has changed, and offers an urgent call for real reforms."

Keeping at it : the quest for sound money and good government

November 19, 2018
Volcker, Paul A., author.
xvi, 286 pages, 8 unnumbered pages of plates : portraits (some color) ; 25 cm

As chairman of the Federal Reserve (1979-1987), Paul Volcker slayed the inflation dragon that was consuming the American economy and restored the world's faith in central bankers. That extraordinary feat was just one pivotal episode in a decades-long career serving six presidents. Told with wit, humor, and down-to-earth erudition, the narrative of Volcker's career illuminates the changes that have taken place in American life, government, and the economy since World War II. He vibrantly illustrates the crises he managed alongside the world's leading politicians, central bankers, and financiers. Yet he first found his model for competent and ethical governance in his father, the town manager of Teaneck, NJ, who instilled Volcker's dedication to absolute integrity and his "three verities" of stable prices, sound finance, and good government.

The power of zero / : how to get to the 0% tax bracket and transform your retirement

A gathering storm -- The taxable bucket -- The tax-deferred bucket -- The tax-free bucket -- The lirp -- The tax sale of a lifetime -- Putting it all together -- Pensions and the 0% tax bracket -- The tax-free road map -- Frequently asked questions.
"There's a massive freight train bearing down on the average American investor, and it's coming in the form of higher taxes. The United States government has made trillions of dollars in unfunded promises for programs like Social Security and Medicare--and the only way to deliver on these promises is to raise taxes. Some experts have even suggested that tax rates will need to double, just to keep our country solvent. Unfortunately, if you're like most Americans, you've saved the majority of your retirement assets in tax-deferred vehicles like 401(k)s and IRAs. If tax rates go up, how much of your hard-earned money will you really get to keep? In The Power of Zero, McKnight provides a concise, step-by-step roadmap on how to get to the 0% tax bracket by the time you retire, effectively eliminating tax rate risk from your retirement picture. Now, in this expanded edition, McKnight has updated the book with a new chapter on the 2017 Tax Cuts and Jobs Act, showing readers how to navigate the new tax law in its first year of being in effect, and how they can extend the life of their retirement savings by taking advantage of it now. The day of reckoning is fast approaching. Are you ready to do what it takes to experience the power of zero?"--Dust jacket.

Mastering the market cycle : getting the odds on your side

October 9, 2018
Marks, Howard, 1946- author.
viii, 323 pages ; 24 cm
Includes index.
"One of the most successful Wall Street investors of all time provides practical insight and keen analysis on how to track, and react to, the ups and downs of the stock market. Marks reveals the hidden logic in carefully pinpointing market trends so that every investor can profit. "When I see memos from Howard Marks in my mail, they're the first thing I open and read. I always learn something."--Warren Buffett Economies, companies, and markets operate according to patterns or cycles. These cycles arise from naturally occurring phenomena in everyday business, and to a large extent, from the simple ups and downs of human psychology and behavior. When should you pull out of the market? When should you stay in? These fundamental psychological influences-including greed and fear-can and do profoundly affect investors. If you carefully study past cycles, understand their origins and import, and remain alert for the next up or down cycle, you won't have to reinvent the wheel in order to understand every investment environment. And you're less likely to be blind-sided by unexpected events. By following Marks's insights-which are drawn from his memorable memos to clients-you can master these recurring patterns for your own financial gain and psychological benefit."-- Provided by publisher.
