Boom & bust : financial cycles and human prosperity by Alex J Pollock( Book )

10 editions published between 2010 and 2011 in English and held by 133 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"I am the head of a small but successful international funds management operation and I also teach a post grad course in Market and Risk Analysis. When I saw this title I was hopeful of learning something or at the very least being able to point my students to the book to explain basic concepts. Unfortunately I couldn't recommend this book to anyone. It has no insight into economics, financial systems or market cycles. It does have a whole lot of unsubstantiated opinion about the benefits of unregulated markets, most of it so simplistic that it's almost embarrassing. You also get a lot of folksy homilies that take the place of thought and analysis. And just to round things out the author promotes his prejudices as fact. Well to be fair, he does quote other people who share his prejudices, but none of them provide any substance to his point of view either."--Paul Zahara

A global monetary plague : asset price inflation and Federal Reserve quantitative easing by Brendan Brown( Book )

1 edition published in 2015 in English and held by 1 WorldCat member library worldwide

The Great Monetary Experiment designed and administered by the Federal Reserve under the Obama Administration unleashed strong irrational forces in global asset markets. The result was a 'monetary plague' which has attacked and corrupted the vital signalling function of financial market prices. This book analyses how quantitative easing caused a sequence of markets to become infected by asset price inflation. It explains how instead of bringing about a quick return to prosperity from the Great Recession, the monetary experiment failed in its basic purpose. Bringing about economic debilitation, major financial speculation, waves of mal-investment in particular areas, and a colossal boom in the private equity industry, the experiment instead produced monetary disorder. Brendan Brown puts the monetary experiment into a global and historical context, examining in particular Japanese 'folklore of deflation' and the Federal Reserve's first experiment of quantitative easing in the mid-1930s. The author couples analysis from the Austrian school of monetary economics and Chicago monetarism with insights from behavioral finance, and concludes with major proposals for the present and the future, including ideas for monetary reform in the United States, and suggestions for how investors can survive the current market 'plague'. -- from back cover
