Financial Statements is a perfect introduction to financial accounting for non-financial managers, stock market investors, undergraduate business and MBA students, lawyers, lenders, entrepreneurs, and more. Most introductory finance and accounting books either fail because they are written by accountants for accountants or the authors ´´dumb down´´ the concepts until they are virtually useless. Financial Statements deftly shows that all this accounting and financial reporting stuff is not rocket science and that anyone can understand it! Thomas R. Ittelson is a scientist, businessman, author, and teacher with many years of hands-on experience in business development and marketing for technical companies. As a consultant to entrepreneurs, Ittelson has written business plans and prepared financial projections that have helped raise more than $500 million in start-up equity capital. 1.

The global economy is entering an era of protracted stagnation, similar to what Japan has experienced for over a decade. That is the message of this brilliant and controversial summary of our current economic predicament from an internationally respected consultant and commentator on financial markets, who predicted the Global Financial Crisis of 2008. The author challenges the assumption that growth can be perpetual and questions the ability of political leaders to enact the tough structural changes needed. He is particularly critical of the ´easy money´ approach to dealing with the great recession of 2008, citing the dangers of excessive debt and deep-seated fundamental imbalances. The fallout of these poor policies, he argues, will affect not only the business sector, but also the lifestyles and prosperity of average citizens and future generations. The author concludes with a thought experiment illustrating the large-scale changes that will be necessary to restore economic, financial, and social sustainability. This experiment has already been tried in Iceland, which went bankrupt in the wake of the 2008 crisis, and now, after a painful adjustment, is on the road to recovery. Told for the lay listener and peppered with witty anecdotes, this audiobook clearly explains the missteps that created the current dilemma, why a recovery has proved elusive, and the difficult remedies that must eventually be applied to ensure a stable future. Satyajit Das is an internationally respected expert in finance, with over 30 years´ experience. He worked for the ´sell side´ (banks such as Citicorp Investment Bank and Merrill Lynch), the ´buy side´ (Treasurer of the TNT Group) and acted as a consultant advising banks, investors, corporations and central banks throughout the world. He has been within touching distance of many of the pivotal events in finance during his long career. 1. Language: English. Narrator: Satyajit Das.

For the past 40 years, Richard Koch has wanted to uncover the simple, elemental, elegant and parsimonious principles that are needed to create great new businesses. To qualify, a principle must be so overwhelmingly powerful that anyone can reliably use it towards extraordinary results. Is there any principle that can tell you how to do that consistently and with a high chance of success? Working with venture capitalist Greg Lockwood, his coauthor on Superconnect, and supported by research from the elite firm of OC&C Strategy Consultants, Koch has the answer. The principle Koch and Lockwood have discovered behind extraordinarily successful businesses is simplifying. Some simplify on price - take Ryanair´s budget flights, which still take you from A to B but so cheaply that nearly everyone can afford them, multiplying the size of their market - and some simplify on proposition, such as Apple´s decision to cut down on the number of their product lines and focus on perfecting only a few devices. With case studies of famous companies in all different industries from finance to fast food, the authors show how anyone can analyse their business´ potential to become a simplifier and which route they should take to maximise the impact. 1.

Expected Returns is a one-stop reference that gives investors a comprehensive toolkit for harvesting market rewards from a wide range of investments. Written by an experienced portfolio manager, scholar, strategist, investment advisor and hedge fund trader, this book challenges investors to broaden their minds from a too-narrow asset class perspective and excessive focus on historical performance. Coverage includes major asset classes (stocks, bonds, alternatives), investment strategies (value, carry, momentum, volatility) and the effects of underlying risk factors (growth, inflation, illiquidity, tail risks). Judging expected returns requires balancing historical returns with both theoretical considerations and current market conditions. Expected Returns summarizes the state of knowledge on all of these topics, providing extensive empirical evidence, surveys of risk-based and behavioral theories, and practical insights. ´´This is the best book on active management ever written - and it achieves that status without mentioning a single stock or bond by name. Anyone who performs the rigorous analysis Ilmanen describes - admittedly a neat trick, since the world´s most sophisticated investors struggle to do it successfully - will beat the market.´´ Laurence B. Siegel, Former Director of Research, The Ford Foundation ´´Antti Ilmanen shows the way forward for the investment management profession in this remarkable book. In a comprehensive and impressive way, he combines financial theory, historical performance data and forward-looking indicators, into a consistent framework for assessing expected returns and risk. His approach is both scientific and practical, based on decades of studies and his own trading experience. With a touch of personal wisdom and humility, Ilmanen´s book is a fascinating and educational journey into the future of investment management.´´ Knut N. Kjaer, Founding CEO of the Norwegian Government Pension Fund/NBIM and former president of RiskMetrics Group ´´Ilmanen´s wonderful book manages to be exquisitely readable while covering just about every aspect of the investment process. Filled with many, many fresh and useful insights. This volume deserves to be read and then kept close at hand - because it is sure to be needed again and again.´´ Martin L. Leibowitz, Managing Director, Morgan Stanley, and former CIO, TIAA-CREF ´´Job one for any investor is to estimate asset class returns. For the first time, Antti Ilmanen has assembled into one volume all of the tools necessary for this task: for the working money manager, a unique treasure trove of analytical techniques and empirical evidence; for the academic, a comprehensive guide to the relevant academic literature; and for the consultant, a blinding light with which to illuminate performance. Expected Returns is destined to occupy the front shelves of investment professionals around the world.´´ William J. Bernstein, author of The Intelligent Asset Allocator, The Birth of Plenty, and A Splendid Exchange, and co-principal of Efficient Frontier Advisors ´´Antti´s synthesis of experience and theory has given us a book which fills a major gap in the literature on investing. Amazing, but true, this is the first book dedicated to the critical and challenging task of estimating how much we should expect to earn on our investments. This illuminating book, teaming with valuable insights that have never before been gathered under one roof, cannot fail to make the reader a more successful and discerning investor.´´ Victor Haghani, Associate Lecturer, London School of Economics, and former founding partner of LTCM ´´Ilmanen has written a thorough and detailed analysis of one of the central issues in investing.´´ Ken French, Heidt Professor of Finance, Dartmouth College ´´Investors´ decisions should be evidence based. Antti Ilmanen assembles a global body of evidence, and interprets it with insight. Read this book and you will improve your understanding of the future.´´ Elroy Dimson, Emeritus Professor of Finance, London Business School ´´If I could choose only one book on active management, I would choose Expected Returns. This book is extremely thorough and well researched, yet direct and to the point.´´ Roger G. Ibbotson, Professor in the Practice of Finance, Yale School of Management, and Chairman and CIO of Zebra Capital Management Expected Returns is a one-stop reference that gives investors a comprehensive toolkit for harvesting market rewards from a wide
The definitive look at Wall Street in the 19th CenturyPerhaps the 19th century´s best book on Wall Street, Fifty Years in Wall Street provides a fascinating look at the financial markets during a period of rapid economic expansion. Henry Clews was a giant figure in finance at that time, and his firsthand account brings this colorful era to life like never before. He reveals shocking stories of political and economic manipulation and how he helped bring down the mighty Boss Tweed. He writes eloquently about the madness of the markets and how the era´s greatest speculators amassed their fortunes. This book provides an expansive view of Wall Street in an era of little regulation, rampant political corruption, and rapid financial change.Henry Clews was born in England in 1836 and emigrated to the United States in 1850. In 1859, he cofounded what became the second largest marketer of federal bonds during the Civil War. Later, he organized the ´´Committee of 70,´´ which deposed the corrupt Tweed Ring in New York City, and served as an economic consultant to President Ulysses Grant. 1. Language: English.

Praise for Damodaran on Valuation SECOND EDITION ´´Aswath Damodaran is simply the best valuation teacher around. If you are interested in the theory or practice of valuation, you should have Damodaran on Valuation on your bookshelf. You can bet that I do.´´ -Michael J. Mauboussin, Chief Investment Strategist, Legg Mason Capital Management and author of More Than You Know: Finding Financial Wisdom in Unconventional Places ´´Damodaran on Valuation is a marvel. The combination of expositional simplicity and conceptual rigor in this book is a rarity in the field of finance; rarer still is the clarity of ideas that simultaneously informs and delights. I do not believe that one can claim to be a serious practitioner-or, for that matter, teacher-of business valuation without mastering the ideas presented in this definitive piece of work.´´ -Professor Anant K. Sundaram, Faculty Director of Executive Education, Tuck School of Business at Dartmouth College ´´Professor Damodaran does an excellent job of incorporating public and private company valuation issues in one volume. It´s full of ´how tos´ in dealing with difficult technical issues not usually addressed in text books, making it a great discussion tool and resource for both the student and the valuation professional. This is a great addition to any valuation library or training program.´´ -Scott A. Nammacher, CFA, ASA, Managing Director, Empire Valuation Consultants, LLC In today´s no-room-for-error business environment, the ability to accurately value a company´s assets-both tangible and intangible-is essential for a wide variety of professionals, whether they are inside or outside that company. Damodaran on Valuation looks at valuation from the viewpoint of both the internal corporate strategist and the external portfolio manager, addressing issues related to models and techniques for valuing a business and, just as important, explaining their application in either the operation or acquisition of that business. Damodaran on Valuation explores all aspects of valuation, from the fundamentals of estimating cash flows and discount rates to the principles underlying the use of multiples. In addition, the book addresses what are often left as loose ends in valuation-the value of control and synergy; how best to deal with cash, non-operating assets, and employee stock options when valuing a company; and the consequences of illiquidity, distress, and lack of transparency for asset value. Whether you are a manager looking to maximize a company´s value or an investor looking to beat the market, Damodaran on Valuation will give you the detailed, logical, and sensible answers you need to arrive at an accurate valuation.
