The True History, and Dangerous Myths, of the Modern Stock Market. The stock market is big news now, influencing every aspect of the modern economy. Accepted wisdom has it that the market will provide retirement security for anyone willing to diligently save and invest.Yet many people can remember a time when the stock market was little more than a primitive insiders' game, viewed by most Americans with skepticism and suspicion. In Toward Rational Exuberance, B. Mark Smith, a professional stock trader with two decades of practical experience, tells the fascinating story of how this stunning transformation occurred. Smith traces the evolution of popular theories of stock market behavior, showing how they have become widely accepted over time. He also clarifies some of these theories -- such as the notion that the market is often susceptible to speculative "bubbles" that will inevitably burst -- and explains how they are based on faulty interpretations of market history. The central thesis of Toward Rational Exuberance is that the modern stock market is the product of a dynamic evolutionary process; it cannot be predicted by extrapolating arbitrary historical standards into the future. It is only by understanding the way the modern market has been created that today's investor can begin to understand the market itself.

Get ready for a fundamentally different approach to personal finance. This program helps you transform your relationship with money-whether your goal is to get out of debt, become financially independent or align your financial decisions with your personal values.Your choice: this inexpensive workbook or a free PDF.First and foremost, the PDF version of this entire course is available for free on my website "financinglife-dot-org". (Amazon doesn't allow discrete web links, but you'll find it quickly there.) This paperback version exists for those who prefer a hardcopy to use as a workbook, or to give as a gift.This workbook is organized to be very personal. You need some time, a pencil, and a commitment to get full benefit of this course. You may print specific pages from the PDF version. A paperback version is available from Amazon.com, although we offer this primarily as a convenience if you prefer hardcopy, and so that you can gift a pretty paperback version to a friend or family member on their birthday, holiday, or graduation.What you can expect from this program:The late Joe Dominguez, co-author of the bestseller Your Money or Your Life, spent a decade developing this program for himself. Nearly 40 years later, people's lives are still being enriched by the Financial Integrity Program he helped create. The program enables you to: Get out of debt Spend less Develop savings Learn to base your transactions (the getting, spending, investing and giving of your resources) on your own personal principles Achieve a degree of financial independence that allows you to spend your time doing what is fulfilling for you Rick Van Ness, author of Why Bother With Bonds recently expanded Steps 8 and 9 to reflect the time-proven wisdom that many call the common sense investing principles. These are also recognized as the Bogleheads Investment Philosophy, an endearing term honoring John C. Bogle, lifelong champion for ordinary investors.What's different about the 9-Step Financial Integrity Program?Many books and "step programs" on managing your money are available today. What most of these books have in common is that they assume your financial life functions separately from the rest of your life. The Financial Integrity Program is different. It is a 'whole systems' approach to your life. And it will take you back to basics-the basics of making your spending (and hopefully your saving and investing) of money into a clear mirror of your life values and purpose.The purpose of the Financial Integrity Program is not to sell you anything-a product, a guru, a lifestyle. You don't need any of those to achieve your goals. But you don't need to go it alone, either. By using this proven, comprehensive program of nine steps based on classic financial principles, you can get where you want to go faster than making them up yourself. And it's all free.Is this program what you need? Ask yourself these questions: Are you comfortable with the amount of money you have? Is it enough? Are you spending as much time with family and friends as you would like? Do you come home from your job feeling fulfilled? Do you have time to participate in things you believe are worthwhile? If you were laid off from your job, would you see it as a tragedy or an opportunity? Do you have enough savings to support you through six months of normal living expenses? When you think about your finances, do you feel peaceful and at ease? If you were to die in the next few years, would you be comfortable with your legacy or contribution to your family, your community, the world? Are all the aspects of your life - your job, your possessions, your relationships, your values - integrated? If you answered, 'no' to even one of these, then this 9-Step program can help.

Discover the 5 Essentials to Financial Freedom and Prosperity! Do you wish you had more money saved for retirement? Do you and your partner fight about money? Do you want to make an investment but are unsure in what? Do you make yourself promises about finances that you just can't seem to keep? If you answered yes to any of these questions, you may have a problem-but it's not the problem you think it is. Your money problems are a consequence of the relationship you have with your money. A problem in that relationship is what's really holding you back. In this compelling book, The Financial Wisdom of Ebenezer Scrooge, you will learn the breakthrough approach that is transforming lives-a method which The Wall Street Journal hails as "an innovative effort that combines experiential therapy with nuts-and-bolts financial planning." Finally, a practical plan to be your money's master instead of its servant. Ebenezer Scrooge would seem an unlikely source from which to glean financial wisdom: He was a wealthy man who kept his living quarters cold to save shillings and lived a reclusive existence because he worried someone would take his money. However, Dickens' classic tale of how Scrooge found his true course in life is a powerful model we all can benefit from today. Unlike other financial planning books that focus narrowly on the "dollar and cents" of money, The Financial Wisdom of Ebenezer Scrooge is an easy read. Written for the layperson, this book provides advice that is simple, transformational, and timeless. Through the process they've used successfully with their clients, the authors will show you how to recognize ways unconscious Money Scripts may keep you trapped; how to deal with the relationship between your net worth and your self-worth; how to discover your authentic goals and values; how to permanently change self-destructive money behaviors; and, through 5 essentials of financial prosperity, how to leave a family legacy of financial wellness. "These are five essentials indeed, they have literally changed my life Clients, friends, and family will all be receiving this book as a gift from me. They will no doubt thank me later." -Kerry Hansen, Career Management Specialist for Wynonna Judd "The authors have hit a grand slam with this outstanding book. Brilliant, clear, moving... a must-read." -Jerry Moe M.A., National Director of Children's Programs, Betty Ford Center "This will be on my clients' 'must-read' list." -Elizabeth Jetton CFP®, Chairperson of The Financial Planning Association, 2005
