Against the gods : the remarkable story of risk by Peter L Bernstein( Book )

69 editions published between 1996 and 2013 in 12 languages and held by 2,840 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"Against the Gods, a narrative that reads like a novel, chronicles the remarkable intellectual adventure that liberated humanity from the oracles and soothsayers by means of the powerful tools of risk management that are available to us today. This is a richly-woven tale of Greek philosophers and Arab mathematicians, of merchants and scientists, gamblers and philosophers, world-renowned intellects and obscure but inspired amateurs who helped discover the modern methods of putting the future at the service of the present, replacing helplessness before the fates with choice and decision."--Jacket
The power of gold : the history of an obsession by Peter L Bernstein( Book )

39 editions published between 1998 and 2013 in English and Chinese and held by 1,995 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

This volume recounts the timeless story of our obsession with gold. Mixing myth, legend, and historical fact, the author looks at the people, places, and events that have evoked desperation and frustration in human behavior. Starting with a broad palette of colorful characters, Pharaoh Hatshepsut, King Midas, Alexander the Great, Emperor Justinian, the Inca Emperor Atahualpa, Martin Luther, Kublai Khan, Sir Isaac Newton, and Charles De Gaulle, the author recounts the sequence of events that led to gold becoming the international monetary standard in the 19th Century only to fall to obscurity amid the collapse of the Bretton Woods System in 1971. This is the story of people so blinded in their pursuit of gold that they could not comprehend the difference between useless metal and real wealth

The debt and the deficit : false alarms/real possibilities by Robert L Heilbroner( Book )

10 editions published in 1989 in English and held by 1,131 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

While most Americans talk and fret about the deficit and our mounting national debt, two eminent economists here do something different: They challenge the prevailing assumption that the federal budget imbalance insidiously saps our economic strength. This trenchant, original, and timely primer is the result. It is addressd to the four hundred and forty out of every thousand Americans who consider the debt and the deficit to be their country's most pressing problem, but cannot tell you exactly why. In crystal-clear language, Robert Heilbroner and Peter Bernstein explain what national debts and deficits are, and what they are not. One thing they are not nearly as big as we think. Another thing they are not is a burden on the shoulders of our grandchildren. And one thing they are is a potential means of financing economic growth. Heilbroner and Bernstein do not shrug aside the debt and deficit. "The only remedy for our present frightened state of mind," they write, "is explanations that are simple but accurate, facts that will defuse unreasoning panic, and arguments that will stand up under the most skeptical examination."--Publisher description

Capital ideas evolving by Peter L Bernstein( Book )

29 editions published between 2000 and 2013 in 4 languages and held by 539 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"In all of history and in all fields of intellectual endeavor, a tension has existed between theory and practice. Those of us who earn a living in the real world seldom want to appear as slaves to some set of abstract ideas. It was no surprise, therefore, that the word "baloney" was Wall Street's greeting to the pioneering theories of finance developed by a small group of academics in their ivory towers during the years from 1954 to 1972. Yet those breakthrough theories would in time earn five Nobel Prizes in Economic Science. Baloney they were not." "In Capital Ideas Evolving, today's foremost financial historian expands upon his groundbreaking book of 1992, Capital Ideas: The Improbable Origins of Modern Wall Street, to recount how these financial theories finally migrated from the towers of ivory to the towers of glass on Wall Street and other financial centers around the world. The result has been a global revolution in the nature of financial markets, the menu of investment strategies, the development of exotic financial instruments, and the role of an uncertain future in all investment decisions. Even the academics who originally developed these theories are active today in the markets and in the creation of new financial structures and strategics."--Jacket

Streetwise : the best of the Journal of portfolio management( Book )

9 editions published between 1997 and 1998 in English and held by 252 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

This work brings together classic articles from the publication that helped revolutionize the way Wall Street does business. During the recession of the early 1970s, investment professionals turned to the theories of a small band of mathematical economists, whose ideas on such topics of portfolio development and risk management eventually led to the reform and maintenance of entire economies. Peter Bernstein sought to encourage the exchange of ideas between economists and practitioners, when in 1974, he founded "The Journal of Portfolio Management". For this volume, 41 of the most influential articles have been selected. They are all aimed at stimulating dialogue between academic economists wishing to understand the real-world problems of finance, and investment professionals wanting to bring the most advanced theoretical work to bear on commerce
