The Classical economists : beginning a new world of economic insight by E. G West( Recording )

14 editions published between 1988 and 2007 in English and Undetermined and held by 236 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

The classical economists pioneered a new way of thinking about the uniquely human tendency to produce, trade, consume, and accumulate. Adam Smith (1723-1790) explained how the division of labor expands productive power and argued for freedom in economic affairs; Smith attempted to explain the basis of value, prices, the role of money, and other important concepts related to prosperity and an improved standard of living for all members of society. David Ricardo (1772-1823), a London stockbroker, developed the concept of diminishing returns, the wages-fund doctrine, and classical rent theory. Another classical theorist, Thomas Malthus (1776-1834), proposed that workers are doomed to subsistence wages, because populations increase geometrically while food production increases arithmetically. Other classical economists, including James Mill, John Stuart Mill, and Nassau Senior, extended and refined classical economics to meet new controversies and ideas throughout the nineteenth century
Karl Marx, Das Kapital : from capitalist exploitation to communist revolution by David Ramsay Steele( )

10 editions published between 1988 and 2011 in English and held by 189 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

In his monumental work, Das Kapital, Karl Marx (1818-1883), tried to show that capitalism was both inefficient and immoral. His key to explaining capitalism is his labor theory of value, which he developed from ideas of Adam Smith and David Ricardo. Marx argued that all profit, rent, and interest are "surplus-value", obtained by paying workers less than the value of their products. He maintained that the living conditions of the workers always tend to deteriorate that competition automatically creates monopoly, and that the business cycle demonstrates the wastefulness of capitalism
The Keynesian revolution : capitalism as a flawed system, and ideas for a new order by Fred R Glahe( )

11 editions published between 1988 and 2007 in English and held by 187 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Discusses Keynes' view that capitalism is capable of remarkable efficiency, yet prone to instability caused by weak consumer demand.

Thorstein Veblen and institutionalism : social institutions gain new significance in economics by William Peterson( )

11 editions published between 1988 and 2007 in English and held by 161 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Institutionalism is an economic point of view that emphasizes the role of social organization and structure in modern economic life. Thorstein Veblen (1857-1929), an American son of Norwegian immigrants was instrumental in creating this school of thought in the early twentieth century, and he vigorously attacked what he regarded as the privileged "leisure class" in American. To Institutionalists, the important "institutions" of economic life include customs, habits, morals, and laws. These are believed to be more important in shaping economic life than are marketplace principles. They believe that economics has few absolute principles, and therefore that economics cannot be a rigorous science. Institutionalist ideas greatly influenced economic policies that were created in response to the Great Depression. Among the most important followers of this tradition in the late twentieth century has been John Kenneth Galbraith

Taxes, estate planning, and asset protection by Vernon K Jacobs( )

10 editions published between 1997 and 2007 in English and held by 154 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

To accumulate wealth, you must do more than invest well. You also must protect yourself (and your estate) against losses stemming from poor tax planning, vulnerability to lawsuits, property forfeiture laws, and probate. Asset protection typically is an adjunct to estate planning, a complicated matter usually requiring the advice of an attorney an/or professional estate planner. Probate, the legal process for settling an estate, can be very expensive; the techniques for avoiding probate include revocable living trusts; Joint Tenancy with Rights of Survivorship (JWTROS); payable-on-death accounts (a.k.a. Totten Trusts); naming a beneficiary on pensions and retirement accounts; giving away property while still alive; life insurance planning; and others

9 editions published between 2006 and 2009 in English and held by 141 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Benjamin Graham developed "value investing," a style adopted by Warren Buffett, one of history's most successful investors; it is based on "fundamental analysis," which quantitatively compares a company's stock price to various measures of financial strength and promise. "Growth investing" is a fundamentally different style that seeks to identify tomorrow's great business successes. Learn the ins and outs, and the pros and cons, of these basic investment styles
Crashes, booms, panics and government regulation by Robert Sobel( )

7 editions published between 2006 and 2009 in English and held by 137 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

While financial markets sometimes mark time, more often than not they are advancing or correcting. Bull markets eventually are followed by bear interludes; booms; panics; and busts are part of a recurring cycle that marks the course of securities markets. No boom, panic, or bust ever looks exactly like another one, yet most seem to share some attributes-and knowing what these are may help you to better follow and understand financial and economic events. Still, it's important to remember that fully accurate and reliable knowledge of such matters is possible only in retrospect: as Will Rogers once remarked, "never make predictions, especially about the future."
Technical traders and commodity speculators by Lyn Miller Sennholz( )

6 editions published between 2006 and 2007 in English and held by 128 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Most investors do not get involved in speculation or commodities, but speculators play a vital function in financial markets by absorbing and managing risk. Technical traders practically ignore business results within specific companies, instead focusing on broad market indicators such as price trends, trading volume, and rate of change in major stock market averages. The Secrets of the Great Investors series is a collection of presentations that explain, in understandable language, the strategies, tactics, and principles that have produced great wealth, and how you can improve your financial future. History's greatest investors used powerful investing philosophies to produce superior results, and you can learn from their successes and mistakes
