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.

"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.

Dallas, TX : BenBella Books, Inc., [2014]

Includes index.
Introduction: And so it came to be -- The problem -- The process -- The power.
"Do you yearn for more, but can't quite put your finger on what that is? Do you strive for higher income, but at the same time sense there's more to success than making lots of money? Do you long to pursue your purpose in a meaningful and rewarding way? Even though you've already achieved a great deal, do you deeply desire, definitely deserve, and fully expect to reap even greater financial rewards--and want to ensure you handle those financial rewards knowledgeably and responsibly? Sacred Success is a groundbreaking paradigm shift that tells women, There is a better way to achieve wealth and power: on your own terms. In her work with countless powerful, successful women over the last twenty years, bestselling author and financial educator Barbara Stanny found that most women's problems with money have little to do with money itself, but rather their fear of or ambivalence toward power. Instead of pushing women to pursue financial success in the traditional fashion, Sacred Success seeks to redefine power from a feminine perspective. You can be financially successful without sacrificing your soul or compromising your values. You can have more money, not as an end itself, but as a tool for making a difference and helping others. You can create wealth and exercise power by staying true to your feminine traits, authentic truths, and personal mission. The ultimate goal of Sacred Success isn't to "finish rich" (though that may be a desired outcome), but to achieve Greatness, which requires you to become the powerful force you were born to be. More than a financial guide, Sacred Success is a primer on power for women--a tutorial for taking charge of your life by taking charge of your finances, and not only growing your money but creating a deeper, richer, and more meaningful life. Best described as A Course in Miracles meets the Wall Street Journal, Sacred Success gives you a proven process that uniquely blends the practical, psychological, and spiritual work of wealth. The results may be nothing short of miraculous"-- Provided by publisher.

They are skeptical of expert advice, yet more committed than baby boomers to passing wealth on to future generations. To build wealth, young people must start investing early and buck conventional market wisdom. Millennial Money will explain the most common mistakes that hurt investors' long-term returns and show why their investments in popular stocks or the hottest industry of the day have resulted in such underwhelming results. More importantly, the book will introduce a strategy that can help us overcome our shortcomings as investors. Armed with this strategy, Millennials can become the most successful investing generation in history"-- Provided by publisher.
