The fact is information is power. And, the truth is there's lots of financial advice available. Unfortunately, it's often either too confusing or biased. The Seven S.E.C.R.E.T.S. of the Money Masters cuts through the clutter, clearly presenting the seven most important questions you must be able to answer before making any investment decision. The book offers you some of the information that true money masters know, understand, and use to their advantage--but that hasn't necessarily been passed along to the rest of us. Engaging and informative, the book:
* Shines a light on the much broader issues of attaining wealth and getting your retirement plans back on track
* Offers access to the S.E.C.R.E.T.S. website which includes additional resources and access to exclusive debt reduction software
The Seven S.E.C.R.E.T.S. of Money Masters goes where most personal finance books -and financial advisors - fear to tread, revealing the S.E.C.R.E.T.S. of Safety, Expense, Cash Flow, Rate of Return, Economy, Tax Efficiency and (common) Sense.
"Events have raised large questions about the academic theories supporting the concept that our heavily 'engineered' financial markets are self-disciplined and efficiently allocate capital. Amar Bhide's skeptical analysis should stimulate basic reconsideration."--Paul Volcker, chairman of the Economic Recovery Advisory Board and former chairman of the Federal Reserve
"This great book, Amar Bhide's third in a decade, is an essential and distinct contribution in our hour of need. It first reformulates how modern capitalism does what it does best--innovation. Then, in high gear, it shows us how our capitalism has been brought down by a thousand cuts: the idea that rational investors always know precisely what they're doing, the perversion of the banking industry, the errors of deregulation and the striking errors in some new regulations. A Call for Judgment is not a cry for some auto da fe on Wall Street but rather a brilliant and reasoned plea for a basic revamp of our capitalist institutions so as to regain the dynamism of old."--Edmund S. Phelps, McVickar Professor of Political Economy and Director of the Center on Capitalism and Society, Columbia University, and 2006 Nobel laureate in Economics
"A Call for Judgment is an intellectual firecracker--full of wisdom, common sense, and hard-hitting reform proposals. Few other writers, if any, can match Amar Bhide's deep knowledge of economic theory and historical detail with his first-hand experience in both entrepreneurship and real-world finance. It's hard to imagine a more useful analysis or guide for what must now be done."--Thomas K. McCraw, Straus Professor of Business History, Emeritus, Harvard Business School, author of Prophet of Innovation: Joseph Schumpeter and Creative Destruction
"A Call for Judgment presents many interesting insights on necessary innovations in the world of today and tomorrow. Amar Bhide prompts also some conclusions for improving the rules and ways for future banking-supervision in the United States. This book is a very positive contribution to a necessary debate."--Hans Tietmeyer, former president, Deutsche Bundesbank
"Amar Bhide's analysis of the economic crisis that exploded on us a few years ago is extremely informative and thought provoking. He writes from an experience both in business, where he could see what was going on around him, and in academia, where he has had the time to study and reflect on what happened and why. Bhide's discussion of what we need to do to avoid a recurrence is illuminating and persuasive."--Richard R. Nelson, George Blumenthal Professor of International and Public Affairs, Business, and Law, Emeritus, Columbia University and winner of the 2006 Honda Prize and co-author of An Evolutionary Theory of Economic Change
