It's not your money : how to live fully from divine abundance

February 5, 2019
Silver, Tosha, author.
Carlsbad, CA : Hay House Inc., 2019.
vii, 169 pages ; 22 cm
"From the author of the acclaimed Outrageous Openness, a witty and spirited guide to radically releasing the burden of financial fears. It's natural to crave prosperity. Some seek to manifest it in myriad ways--using anything from vision boards to writing a pretend check for a million dollars from the Bank of Divinity. Yet whatever comes, or doesn't, the mind always seems to want more. But what if there was a whole other way? Instead of grasping and chasing, what if we offered everything--our money (or lack of it), our triumphs, our problems, our desires--fully back to Love? What if this offering itself was actually the secret to abundance?"-- Provided by publisher.

Financial freedom : a proven path to all the money you will ever need

February 5, 2019
Sabatier, Grant, author.
342 pages : illustrations ; 24 cm
"Money is unlimited. Time is not. Become financially independent as fast as possible. In 2010, 24-year old Grant Sabatier woke up to find he had $2.26 in his bank account. Five years later, he had a net worth of over $1.25 million, and CNBC began calling him "the Millennial Millionaire." By age 30, he had reached financial independence. Along the way he uncovered that most of the accepted wisdom about money, work, and retirement is either incorrect, incomplete, or so old-school it's obsolete. Financial Freedom is a step-by-step path to make more money in less time, so you have more time for the things you love."--Provided by publisher.

The dumb things smart people do with their money : thirteen ways to right your financial wrongs

January 30, 2019
Schlesinger, Jill, author.
New York : Ballantine Books, 2019.
257 pages ; 25 cm.
You buy financial products that you don't understand -- You take financial advice from the wrong people -- You make money more important than it is -- You take on too much college debt -- You buy a house when you should rent -- You take on too much risk -- You fail to protect your identity -- You indulge too much during your early retirement years -- You saddle your kids with your own money issues -- You don't plan for the care of your aging parents -- You buy the wrong kinds of insurance, or none at all -- You don't have a will -- You try to "time" the market.
"After decades working as a Wall Street trader, investment adviser, and money expert, Jill Schlesinger reveals thirteen costly mistakes you're probably making right now with your money without even knowing it. Drawing on heartfelt personal stories (yes, money experts screw up, too), Schlesinger argues that it's not lack of smarts that causes even the brightest, most accomplished people among us to behave like financial dumb-asses, but simple emotional blind spots. By breaking bad habits and following Jill's pragmatic and accessible rules for managing your finances, you can save tens, even hundreds of thousands of dollars."--Provided by publisher.

The story of silver : how the white metal shaped America and the modern world

January 30, 2019
Silber, William L.
Princeton, NJ : Princeton University Press, [2019]
xx, 340 pages : illustrations ; 25 cm
This is the story of silver's transformation from soft money during the nineteenth century to hard asset today, and how manipulations of the white metal by American president Franklin D. Roosevelt during the 1930s and by the richest man in the world, Texas oil baron Nelson Bunker Hunt, during the 1970s altered the course of American and world history. FDR pumped up the price of silver to help jump start the U.S. economy during the Great Depression, but this move weakened China, which was then on the silver standard, and facilitated Japan's rise to power before World War II. Bunker Hunt went on a silver-buying spree during the 1970s to protect himself against inflation and triggered a financial crisis that left him bankrupt. Silver has been the preferred shelter against government defaults, political instability, and inflation for most people in the world because it is cheaper than gold. The white metal has been the place to hide when conventional investments sour, but it has also seduced sophisticated investors throughout the ages like a siren. This book explains how powerful figures, up to and including Warren Buffett, have come under silver's thrall, and how its history guides economic and political decisions in the twenty-first century.

"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
Introduction: The wise old parrot -- Growing up -- Getting an education -- Early experience -- Off to Washington -- "The best job in the world" -- Monetary reform frustrated -- Back to the beginning -- Attacking inflation -- Financial crises, domestic and international -- Unfinished business : repairing the financial system -- After the Fed -- Mr. Chairman in several guises -- The search for integrity -- Setting standards -- The new financial world : breakdown and reform -- The three verities -- Epilogue: Credit where credit is due.
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

"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.
