"Most measures of the American economy over the past two centuries or so produce a jagged sine wave--"irrationally exuberant" highs leading to painful lows. Bubbles lead to panics, over and over again. Payne has written a short book on the 1920s to demonstrate to undergraduates how this pattern emerges, especially how the highs get to be so high--specifically during the 1920s, which seem to offer instructive examples of the worst practices and circumstances. This "How Things Worked" volume explains market mechanisms, popular pressures, and the workings or failings of regulation. While every drop in the economy has its peculiar features, that of 1929 has the markings of a classic"--

We are born into an automatic social contract--democracy--that we never consent to. While seemingly championing the individual and the value of individual choice, democracy ultimately degenerates into collectivism and mob rule. Coupled with a reified religious mythology, widespread economic and market collapse, and deep political corruption, the individual is lost within a democracy to the collective majority. However, can a just, viable form of governance and society exist without the coercion of democracy? The End of Democracy and Faith presents an alternative vision that wrests the value of individual choice from mob rule and restores the consent and supremacy of the individual in the social contract. Eschewing faith and hope instead for a movement toward building bonds with our fellow men and women and for taking the reins and helping each other save our future, it explores the connections between our morality, identity, history, philosophy, and economy. And with the introduction of the concept of the voluntary state, it offers a philosophical foundation in support of using freedom instead of coercion to handle our responsibilities regarding our own income, retirement, health care, and way of life. The promises of democracy and any individualism inherent to the founding of the nation have been largely replaced by a perilous, disenfranchising collectivism. Pursuing an alternative social reality--one that can truly enable free markets, overcome religious myth, and restore individual choice--represents a true challenge to the moral depravity of democracy and faith. There are certain elements holding back our economy, the author asserts, though economists rarely make mention of them, due to their status as societal sacred cows. His arguments against democracy are the most engaging sections of the book, in part because such cases are so infrequently made. -- Kirkus Reviews

El vocabulario del mundo económico se asocia principalmente con tres grandes bloques: la economía, las finanzas y el comercio. Aunque en principio pueda parecer que existe una sola terminología común a estos tres campos, entre ellos se detectan marcadas diferencias. Por ejemplo, el registro del lenguaje económico es, por lo general, formal y académico. En cambio, el del lenguaje financiero tiene una vena más informal en la que predomina el léxico anglosajón, el de las imágenes expresivas y lúcidas (last looking, concert party, fan club), así como siglas o formas léxicas mutiladas (chips, chaps, tom). Finalmente, el vocabulario del comercio, por tener su origen en el normando antiguo, participa de los dos registros, el coloquial y el formal. Estas diferencias léxicas y su reflejo en los dos idiomas se recogen en las dos partes (inglés-español / Spanish-English) del Diccionario de términos económicos, financieros y comerciales. Esta obra se dirige principalmente a los traductores y a los estudiosos y profesionales de las distintas ramas de las ciencias económicas y empresariales, y del comercio internacional. El diccionario consta de más de 25.000 entradas en cada una de las partes y se han incluido los términos ingleses más modernos del mundo de los negocios, de los que se da no sólo su traducción al español, sino también una breve explicación, acompañada casi siempre de un ejemplo de uso o de la oportuna remisión a algún término relacionado. En lo que se refiere al español, se tiene muy en cuenta los términos del mundo económico acuñados recientemente. Con estos planteamientos, se ha creado un instrumento de trabajo útil, práctico y fácil de manejar, y una fuente de información fresca y actual.

Shoot-Out at Wall And Broad is a fable, but more fact than fiction, about a veteran activist money manger. An activist doesnt just take a position in a stock and passively wait until an anticipated scenario plays out and changes the value of his investment but instead writes the scenario and has a complete understanding of the realities of the business he is investing in. He is initially triggered into action on the short side by the follies, greeted enthusiastically by the herd on Wall Street, of an entrenched hereditary and incompetent management and then switches strategy completely when the stock collapses. His focus is on changing the strategy of a chastened management and, most importantly, of the markets perception of the stock. En route, he employs some old fashioned tape painting, option maneuvers, news management, perception manipulation, and ingenious financial engineering. There is always someone on the other side of the trade, and the protagonist matches wits with other money mangers, hedge funds, market manipulators and underwriters. A story not for those who believe in the tooth fairy but for the pragmatist who believes that investing is sometimes a zero sum game.
