Empire of debt : the rise and fall of an epic financial crisis by William Bonner( Book )

18 editions published between 2005 and 2009 in English and Chinese and held by 1,093 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"In Empire of Debt, writers Bill Bonner and Addison Wiggin - the team that brought you the international bestseller Financial Reckoning Day - reunite to provide you with the first in-depth look at how the American character has shifted to accommodate its new imperial role; how we have abandoned the private virtues of personal liberty, economic freedom, and fiscal restraint; and how the "guv'mint" has gained control of public life and the economy. The result has been, among other horrors, unfettered deficit spending, gluttonous consumption, and fearless military adventurism. All the while, the nation slouches ever more precipitously towards bankruptcy."

Mobs, messiahs, and markets : surviving the public spectacle in finance and politics by William Bonner( Book )

11 editions published between 2007 and 2009 in English and held by 448 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Collectively, people think and act in ways very different from how they think and act as individuals. Author Bonner has long been a maverick observer of the financial and political world, sharpening his sardonic wit, in particular, on the vagaries of the investing public. Market booms and busts, tulip manias and dotcom bubbles, venture capitalists and vulture funds, he lets you know, are best explained not by dry statistics and obscure theories but by the metaphors and analogies of literature. Here, Bonner and freelance journalist Rajiva use literary economics to offer broader insights into mass behavior and its devastating effects on society. They end by giving concrete advice on how readers can avoid what the authors call the "public spectacle" of modern finance, and become, instead, "private" investors--knowing their own mind and following their own intuitions.--From publisher description

11 editions published in 2012 in English and Undetermined and held by 150 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"Advice on managing your wealth from bestselling author Bill BonnerFrom trusted New York Times bestselling author Bill Bonner comes a radical new way to look at family money and a practical, actionable guide to getting and maintaining multigenerational wealth. Family Wealth: How to Build a Family Fortune and Hold Onto It for 100 Years is packed with useful information, interwoven with Bonner's stories about his own family's wealth philosophy and practices. A comprehensive guide that shows how families can successfully preserve their estates by ignoring most of what people think they know about "the rich" and, instead, training and motivating all family members to work together toward a very uncommon goal. This book is a must-read for all individual investors--even those who do not plan to leave money to their children--because it challenges many of the most ubiquitous principles and rules of investing. You might expect a book on family wealth to be extremely conservative in its outlook. Instead, the Bonners announce what is practically a revolutionary manifesto. They explain: Why family money should NOT be invested in "safe, conservative" investments Why charitable giving is usually a waste of money, or worse Why it is NOT a good idea to let children go their own way Why you can't trust wealth "professionals" and why you should never entrust your money to money managers Why giving your children as much education as possible is NOT a good idea Why Warren Buffett and the rest of the rich people asking for higher tax rates are wrong to take "the pledge" Why Wall Street is a graveyard for capital, why most celebrity CEOs are a threat to the businesses they run, why modern capitalism is a failure, and more You will come away with a very different idea as to what family wealth is all about. It is not stodgy. Not boring. Not moss-backed and reactionary. On the contrary, it is the most dynamic, forward-looking capital in the world. The essential guide to passing wealth from one generation to the next, Family Wealth is filled with concrete, practical advice you can put to use right away"--

Hormegeddon : how too much of a good thing leads to disaster by William Bonner( Book )

1 edition published in 2014 in English and held by 46 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"'Hormegeddon' is the term coined by entrepreneur and ... author Bill Bonner to describe what happens when you get too much of a good thing in the sphere of public policy, economics and business. Simply put, it ends in disaster. Drawing on stories and examples from throughout modern political history - from Napoleon's invasion of Russia to the impending collapse of the American healthcare system, from the outbreak of WWII and the fall of the Third Reich to the 21st century War on Terror, from the Great Recession to the sovereign debt crisis - Bonner pursues a modest ambition: to understand what goes wrong. History is not a clean yarn spun by its victors. It is a long tale of things that went FUBAR - debacles, disasters, and catastrophes. That each disaster carries with it a warning is what makes it useful to study. For instance, if the architect of a great ship tells you that 'not even God himself could sink this ship, ' you should take the next boat. If the stock market is selling at 20 times earnings and all the expert analysts urge you to 'get in' because you 'can't lose' - it's time to get out! Similarly, public policy disasters are what you get when well meaning people with this same Titanic degree of certitude apply rational, small-scale problem-solving logic to inappropriately large scale planning. First, you get a declining rate of return on your investment (of time or resources) until you hit zero. Then, if you keep going through the zero floor - and you always keep going - you get a disaster. The problem is, these disasters cannot be stopped by well-informed smart people with good intentions, because they are the people who cause them in the first place. From the mind of Bill Bonner comes Hormegeddon, a phenomenon that occurs when a small dose of something produces a favorable result, but if you increase the dosage, the results end in disaster. The same applies when the world gets too much of a good thing in public policy, economics, and business. Drawing on examples throughout modern political history, Bonner brings context and understanding to this largely ignored and anonymous phenomenon"--Publisher's description

Mobs, messiahs, and markets : surviving the public spectacle in finance and politics by William Bonner( )

6 editions published between 2007 and 2013 in English and held by 21 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Collectively, people think and act in ways that are different from how they think and act as individuals. Understanding these differences, says William (Bill) Bonner-a longtime maverick observer of the financial world and the vagaries of the investing public-is vital to preserving your wealth and personal dignity. From the witch hunts of the early modern world to the war on terror, from the dot-com mania to the real estate bubble, people have always been caught up in frauds, conceits, and wild guesses-often with devastating results. Now Bonner and co-author Lila Rajiva show groupthink at work in an improbable array of instances throughout history and reveal why swimming against the current pays. The explain why people so often abandon good sense and good behavior to "follow the crowd" and show you how to avoid getting caught up in the public spectacles around you. If an investor merely recognizes the way mob sentiment works, he is far ahead of others. Ordinary people turn billions of dollars worth of their hard-earned money over to brokers and fund managers daily, believing that these strangers will give them back even more. Why' This audio book demonstrates that investors are in fact caught between a rock and a soft place-between the private world they can understand and master and the misleading public spectacle of the markets. "The farther away you get fro your investments, and the less you suffer the consequences if they go bad, the worse your performance will be." Say Bonner and Rajiva. "That's why 'collective' investments like index-linked funds, mutual funds, hedge funds, insurance funds, and pension funds are usuall so bad. The investors are too far from the facts-and the managers are too far from the consequences." The authors' thoughtful and always entertaining approach offers sound investing principles for avoiding the pitfalls of the public spectacle, thinking for yourself, and protecting your money, your sanity and your soul
