    Many people feel hopeless or confused when it comes to dealing with money. Even if they have a bookshelf full of personal finance books, they don’t have time to make sense of all the information available. They don’t just want good advice, they want the best advice—so rather than do the “wrong thing,” they do nothing. Their 401(k) and bank statements pile up, unexamined or maybe even unopened. Bad calls about money aren’t failures; they’re just what happens when emotional creatures have to make decisions about the future with limited information. We need to scrap striving for perfection and instead commit to a process of guessing and making adjustments when things go off track. The fact is, in a single page you can prioritize what you really want in life and figure out how to get there. That’s because a great financial plan has nothing to do with what the markets are doing, what your real estate agent is pitching, or the hot stock your brother-in-law told you about. It has everything to do with what’s most important to you. In The One-Page Financial Plan, author and financial planner Carl Richards covers a range of topics, sharing strategies that will take the complexity out of them, including:What about the details? How much do I need to invest each year, and how do I allocate it? How much life insurance do I need?And many more. The most important thing is getting clarity about the big picture so you can cope with the unexpected. But no matter what happens, this audiobook will help you bridge the gap between where you are now and where you want to go.

    From the powerhouse experts at Invesco, a unique book on the investing needs of women Based on a hugely successful Invesco 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 whimsical 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. Their fun voice, emphasis on positive thinking, and deep grasp of the nuances of investing will help women see the financial planning process as inspirational, full of possibility, and even fun. The end result for readers: having the resources they need to create the life they’ve imagined.

    Just as WASPs, Irish-Catholics and Our Crowd Jews once made the ascent from immigrants to powerbrokers, it is now the Indian-American’s turn. Citigroup, PepsiCo, and Mastercard are just a handful of the Fortune 500 companies led by a group known as the “Twice Blessed.” Yet little is known about how these Indian emigrés and children of emigrés rose through the ranks, until now. The collapse of the Galleon Group, a hedge fund that managed more than seven billion dollars in assets, from criminal charges of insider trading was a sensational case that pitted prosecutor Preet Bharara, himself the son of Indian immigrants, against the best and brightest of the South Asian business community. At the center of the case was self-described king of kings, Galleon’s founder Raj Rajaratnam, a Sri-Lankan born, Wharton-educated billionaire. But the most shocking allegation was that the éminence grise of Indian business, Rajat Gupta, was Rajaratnam’s accomplice and mole. If not for Gupta’s nose-to-the-grindstone rise to head up McKinsey & Co and a position on the Goldman Sachs board, men like Rajaratnam would have never made it to the top of America’s moneyed elite. Author Anita Raghavan crisscrosses the globe from Wall Street boardrooms to Delhi’s Indian Institute of Technology as she uncovers the secrets of this subculture, an incredible tale of triumph, temptation, and tragedy.

    When the first fissures became visible to the naked eye in August 2007, suddenly the most powerful men in the world were three men who were never elected to public office. They were the leaders of the world’s three most important central banks: Ben Bernanke of the US Federal Reserve, Mervyn King of the Bank of England, and Jean-Claude Trichet of the European Central Bank. Over the next five years, they and their fellow central bankers deployed trillions of dollars, pounds, and euros to contain the waves of panic that threatened to bring down the global financial system, moving on a scale and with a speed that had no precedent. Neil Irwin’s The Alchemists is a gripping account of the most intense exercise in economic crisis management we’ve ever seen—a poker game in which the stakes have run into the trillions of dollars. The audiobook begins in, of all places, Stockholm, Sweden, in the seventeenth century, where central banking had its rocky birth, and then progresses through a brisk but dazzling tutorial on how the central banker came to exert such vast influence over our world, from its troubled beginnings to the age of Greenspan, bringing the listener into the present with a marvelous handle on how these figures and institutions became what they are—the possessors of extraordinary power over our collective fate. What they chose to do with those powers is the heart of the story Irwin tells. Irwin covered the Federal Reserve and other central banks from the earliest days of the crisis for the Washington Post, enjoying privileged access to leading central bankers and people close to them. His account, based on reporting that took place in twenty-seven cities in eleven countries, is the holistic, truly global story of the central bankers’ role in the world economy we have been missing. It is a landmark reckoning with central bankers and their power, with the great financial crisis of our time, and with the history of the relationship between capitalism and the state. Definitive, revelatory, and riveting, The Alchemists shows us where money comes from-and where it may well be going.

    A coruscating, brilliantly insightful exegesis of where capitalism went wrong, how it was corrupted, and how it might be restored, by outspoken former Reagan budget director and bestselling author David Stockman David Stockman was the architect of the Reagan Revolution meant to restore sound money principles to the United States government. It failed, derailed by politics, special interests, welfare, and warfare. In The Great Deformation, Stockman describes how the working of free markets and democracy has long been under threat in America and provides a surprising nonpartisan catalog of the corrupters and defenders. His analysis overturns the assumptions of Keynesians and monetarists alike, showing how both liberal and neoconservative interference in markets has proved damaging and often dangerous. Over time, crony capitalism has made fools of us all, transforming Republican treasury secretaries into big-government interventionists and populist Democrat presidents into industry-wrecking internationalists. Today’s national debt stands at nearly $16 trillion. Divided equally among taxpayers, each of us is $52,000 in debt. This book explains how we got here—and why this warped crony capitalism has betrayed so many of our hopes and dreams.

In The New Rules of Money, Ric Edelman puts you on the right financial course. His strategies are easy to follow, and he shows you how to maximize your personal finances in today’s economic climate. He tells you the best strategies for paying for college, buying a home, saving on taxes, and choosing the right investments. He changes your thinking about insurance, retirement, and estate planning. No matter what your economic situation, it is time for you to change the way you think about personal finance—and Ric Edelman will show you the way.
