For over 15 years, New York Times best-selling author Harry S. Dent, Jr. has been uncannily accurate in predicting the financial future. In his three previous works, Dent predicted the financial recession of the early 90s, the economic expansion of the mid-90s, and the financial free-for-all of 1998-2000. The Next Great Bubble Boom offers a comprehensive forecast for the next two decades, showing new models for predicting the future behavior of the economy, inflation, large and small cap stocks, bonds, key sectors, and more. Dent gives advice on everything from investment strategies to real estate cycles, and shows not only how bright our future will be, but how best to profit from it. Dent gives us something to look forward to, including: The Dow hitting 40,000 by the end of the decade The Nasdaq advancing at least 10 times from October 2001 lows to around 13,500, and potentially as high as 20,000 by 2009 Another strong advance in stocks in 2005 with a significant correction into around September/October 2006 The Great Boom willl resurge into its final and strongest stage in 2007, and even more fully in 2008, lasting untill late 2009 to early 2010 In The Next Bubble Boom, Dent reveals how the economic growth of the late 1990s was a prelude to the great boom around the corner and how all of us can reap its benefits. 1.

The Great Beanie Baby Bubble:Mass Delusion and the Dark Side of Cute Zac Bissonnette
In his number-one Kindle Single ´´CRASH! How I Lost a Hundred Billion and Found True Love´´, Irish satirist Julian Gough deftly laid bare the Eurozone crisis in all its humor and absurdity. Now in ´´BANG!´´ Gough has turned his inimitable wit and wisdom to third-world economies, managing to explain derivatives, arbitrage, and futures through airplanes crashing into livestock. Dr. Ibrahim Bihi of Somaliland has an advanced degree in economics and, as far as worldly goods go, a goat with three legs. Using his knowledge of temporary market inefficiencies and the propellers of a UN food plane, he turns his goat into capital and sends the global economy into a speculative frenzy. Soon most of the world´s wealth is tied up in goat-backed securities. What could possibly go wrong? Only everything, and with our faithful orphan Jude as guide, we can sit back and laugh our way toward the resolution of this uproariously instructive satire. A version of ´´BANG!´´ was the first short story to be published in The Financial Times, where it appeared in 2003. The story also was adapted as a BBC radio play in 2009 and sold-out stage production in 2012. For listeners unacquainted with the wonderful and bizarre universe of Julian Gough´s literary fiction, this companion to the best-selling short story ´´CRASH!´ will serve as a perfect introduction. 1.

It´s during this season that we´ll clear the decks with a devastating crash and debilitating deflation.

After the blustering bull market of 2009-2015, we are now preparing for a shakeout more painful than anything we´ve seen before. We have eight years of unprecedented government stimulus and money creation to thank for stretching this bubble beyond imagination and making the burst more painful than anything we´ve ever experienced.

The second book in the Easy Money trilogy discusses how the global financial system evolved in the aftermath of the First World War and how that finally led to the dot-com crash in the United States, in the early 2000s. It gives an overview of how in the aftermath of the First World War, Europe was in major trouble. The book also analyzes how the United Kingdom of Great Britain, which was once the premier nation of the world, lost out to its former colony, the United States of America. The dominance of the United States led to its currency, the dollar, becoming the international reserve currency. This led to the United States having an exorbitant privilege which it still continues to have. Over the years, this exorbitant privilege has led to many financial crises in different parts of the world. It has also been responsible for the most recent financial crisis as well. The book concludes with the wisdom of the legendary investor Warren Buffett, who was deemed to be a failure during the heydays of the dot-com bubble, when his investment company Berkshire Hathaway could not generate the stupendous returns that dot-com stocks had been generating. Nevertheless, in the end, it was Buffett who had the last laugh. As he wrote to his shareholders: ´´But a pin lies in wait for every bubble.” The lessons of the dot-com bubble bursting were never really learnt, and soon the same mistakes would be made again.PLEASE NOTE: When you purchase this title, the accompanying PDF will be available in your Audible Library along with the audio. 1.

There has never been a craze like Beanie Babies. The $5 beanbag animals with names like Seaweed the Otter and Gigi the Poodle drove millions of Americans into a greed-fueled frenzy as they chased the rarest Beanie Babies, whose values escalated weekly in the late 1990s. A single Beanie Baby sold for $10,000, and on eBay the animals comprised 10 percent of all sales. Suburban moms stalked UPS trucks to get the latest models, a retired soap opera star lost his kids´ six-figure college funds investing in them, and a New Jersey father sold three million copies of a self-published price guide that predicted what each animal would be worth in 10 years. More than any other consumer good in history, Beanie Babies were carried to the height of success by a collective belief that their values would always rise. Just as strange as the mass hysteria was the man behind it. From the day he started in the toy industry, after dropping out of college, Ty Warner devoted all his energy to creating what he hoped would be the most perfect stuffed animals the world had ever seen. Sometimes called the ´´Steve Jobs of plush´´ by his employees, he obsessed over every detail of every animal. He had no marketing budget and no connections, but he had something more valuable - an intuitive grasp of human psychology that would make him the richest man in the history of toys. Through first-ever interviews with former Ty Inc. employees, Warner´s sister, and the two ex-girlfriends who were by his side as he achieved the American dream, The Great Beanie Baby Bubble tells the inspiring yet tragic story of one of America´s most enigmatic self-made tycoons. Best-selling author Zac Bissonnette uncovers Warner´s highly original approach to product development, sales, and marketing that enabled the acquisition of plush animals to activate the same endorphins chased by stock speculators and gamblers. 1.
