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 182 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

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

10 editions published between 1988 and 2007 in English and held by 155 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. Institutionalists emphasize a historical interpretation of social life, asserting that economic generalizations should be relevant to time and place. 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 146 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

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.

Crashes, booms, panics and government regulation by Robert Sobel( )

7 editions published between 2006 and 2009 in English and held by 130 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."
Investment philosophers and financial economists by Jo Ann Skousen( )

8 editions published between 2006 and 2009 in English and held by 121 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Saving, budgeting, and investing are keys to creating wealth- but there are many different philosophies about how to approach this essential task. The "investment philosophers" offer systematic beliefs about investing that often parallel other systems of human conduct (e.g. Taoism, the hunter-warrior, etc.). The financial economists (e.g. Fisher, Keynes) offer insights about how human behavior is collectively expressed in markets
