Investing In One Lesson


Available: macOS, Windows, Android, Tablet

Why are the smartest, most successful professionals so often failures when it comes to investing? Can stock prices really be so illogical that even doctors and lawyers can't figure them out? Ultimately, is it possible for anyone to decipher the financial markets? Fortunately, the answer is yes. In Investing In One Lesson, investment guru Mark Skousen clearly and convincingly reveals the reasons for the seemingly perverse, unpredictable nature of the stock market. Drawing upon his decades of experience as an investment advisor, writer, and professor, Dr. Skousen explains in one spirited, easy-to-follow lesson why stock prices fluctuate with such apparent irrationality. Lifting back the veil of perplexity and confusion that surrounds the workings of the stock market, Dr. Skousen explains: *Why good news for the economy is often bad news for the stock market *Why stocks of old, established companies in shrinking industries tend to be a better investment than shares in rapidly growing firms in cutting-edge fields *Why stock prices can suddenly skyrocket or collapse--regardless of market fundamentals *Why initial public offerings often enrich insiders at the expense of the majority of investors *How Wall Street is like a giant casino--and how it isn't The perfect investment primer, Investing In One Lesson provides an introduction to everything from day trading to contrary investing to chart-based techniques. Dr. Skousen's book concludes with a comprehensive but simple investment strategy to maximize your returns without having to dedicate countless hours to researching the market. Dr. Skousen packs his book with entertaining personal and professional anecdotes illustrating his central point--that the business of investing is not the same as investing in a business. He offers investors a wide-ranging but accessible course on investing history, psychology, and strategy--all in one lesson.

20 Lessons From 20 Years


Available: macOS, Windows, Android, Tablet

Many investors find navigating the sharemarket a daunting task as the market continues through its unpredictable cycles. Each boom brings a new fad or theme that excites investors who are bombarded by hype in the media. During these times, some companies reach extreme valuations, as investors get caught up in the froth and bubble. Inevitably, these often-irrational booms are followed by sharp corrections as reality catches up. High-quality stocks are not immune to market corrections but good-quality businesses, generating real earnings, tend to recover better over time and as calm is restored to markets. Investors Mutual Limited's (IML) quality and value investment philosophy is based on the premise that a company's share price will reflect its underlying value over the long-term. IML employs an active research-driven approach to identify companies that meet IML's quality criteria and then determine an appropriate valuation. Following this approach since 1998, IML's funds have experienced returns that are more consistent and less volatile than the Australian sharemarket. The sharemarket will continue to evolve, and while this book is not meant to be a complete guide to investing in the sharemarket, hopefully, these lessons, which cover how IML has invested over the past 20 years, will be of value to investors over the next 20 years.

Economic Logic Fourth Edition


Available: macOS, Windows, Android, Tablet

“Eureka! Skousen has done the impossible. Students love it! I will never use another textbook again.”—Harry Veryser, University of Detroit-Mercy They said it couldn’t be done. Austrian economics is so different, they said, that it couldn’t be integrated into standard “neo-classical” textbooks. Consequently, college students learn nothing about the great Austrian economists (Mises, Hayek, Schumpeter). Professor Mark Skousen’s Economic Logic aims to change that. Based on his popular course taught at Columbia University, Skousen starts his “micro” section with Carl Menger’s “theory of the good” and the profit-and-loss income statement to explain the dynamics of the market process, entrepreneurship, and the advantages of saving. Then he uses a powerful Hayekian four-stage model of the economy to introduce “macro,” including a new Austrian measure of spending at all stages of production (Gross Domestic Expenditures). Economic Logic also offers chapters on: The international gold standard, the defects of central banking, and the Mises/Hayek theory of the business cycle. A full critique of the Keynesian Aggregate Supply and Demand (AS-AD) model, and a revolutionary Austrian alternative. Entrepreneurship, the financial markets, environmental economics, monetary policy and inflation, federal spending and taxes, and government regulation. Leaders of all schools, including Austrian, Keynesians, Marxist, Chicago, and Public Choice.
