The bare essentials of investing : teaching the horse to talk by Harold Bierman( )

15 editions published between 2006 and 2007 in English and held by 1,654 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"The objective of this book is to help an individual (or a family) design a personal investment strategy. It explains how stock markets can be used to make a large fortune from a small investment. It also recommends an approach to increase a reasonable return on investment and explains the importance of investment alternatives." "The book is based on the premise that the US stock market is not too high compared to the long-term value of its securities. It further assumes that readers are interested both in return likely to be earned on investment and the risk of not earning the return target. The focus of this book is on "personal" investing. It begins with three basic rules of investing and concludes with ten subordinate rules and other suggestions for investing."--BOOK JACKET

Improving competitiveness of industry by Harold Bierman( )

15 editions published in 2011 in English and held by 1,452 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"As the twenty-first century begins, the world finds itself with a wide range of possible economic futures. Many corporations find it difficult to compete in international markets with the result being shrinking revenue. Too many governments utilize an excessively high percentage of their nation's goods and services. In the past, some countries could afford to have a less than perfect tax system. However, wage and other labor rigidities (work rules) handcuff management. Management has become pre-occupied with non-productive pursuits, and numerous other sources of inefficiency. The objective of this book is to suggest several revisions in institutional structure, management techniques and rewards, and a drastic change in how hourly labor is compensated. The suggestions offered are applicable to any economy where decisions have to be made as to how to organize the factors of production most efficiently. It is therefore essential reading for policymakers, human resource management and accountant management."--Publisher's website
The capital budgeting decision : economic analysis of investment projects by Harold Bierman( Book )

87 editions published between 1960 and 2007 in 3 languages and held by 1,306 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"Individuals and business face large numbers of decisions where it is feasible to quantify key costs and benefits of a long-lived project. This invaluable book enables the decision-maker to make informed choices presented with elements of time and risk. While other measures can help describe the outcomes, Bierman and Smidt's book focuses on the theme of net present value (NPV) - how it is the most reliable single measure of value, and how it is important for those making investment decisions to understand the limitations of the different calculations."--Jacket

Beating the bear : lessons from the 1929 crash applied to today's world by Harold Bierman( )

5 editions published in 2010 in English and held by 625 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

What actually caused the economic crisis in the United States in 1929? Why did a similar disaster occur again in 2008-2009? Today's news sources are filled with misinformation about what is happening in America's financial world and why--perpetrating myths and putting people's hard-earned funds at risk. Twice in the last century, the usually stalwart economy of the United States has crumbled--first in 1929, when the stock market crash that led to the Great Depression hit, and again with the financial market meltdown of 2008-2009 that is still crippling much of America. While it is still too soon to state unequivocally how this latest economic disaster came about, it is possible to theorize that much of what has happened could have been foreseen and even avoided--just as it could have been in 1929. This book accurately describes the economic situations in the United States before the 1929 and 2008-2009 stock market crashes, and carefully examines the causes of both financial crises. This comprehensive assessment of both time periods allows readers to better grasp the present market situation, understand the connection between the explosion of the subprime mortgage market and the current state of the economy, and more wisely forecast the future
