We are now entering a new entrepreneurial economy, as we have shifted away from an industrial economy. This sharing economy has created a new paradigm of aggregation of individuals. It is around these communities organized into categories (workers, employees, executives, entrepreneurs, professionals) that the legislation takes shape.

If public policy intends to give voice to the sharing communities, then it needs to enact pro-entrepreneurship policies, and move away from policies that cater to the old industrial economy. This can be done by facilitating experiments and studies of entrepreneurial ventures and start-ups.

There is no work at the crossroads of economics and entrepreneurship such as this.

Formica explains why public policy now needs to shift towards the entrepreneurial economy, and how this can be done. Employing illustrative examples, this book focuses on the crucial role of policies to support entrepreneurs and establish the right environment for new business development and rapid conversion of ideas into enterprises that contribute to booming economic growth and prosperity.

The War Against Cash The plot to empty your wallet and own your financial future – and why you MUST fight it

Purchase Price

Our price: £ 6.00
We are constantly being told that we are on the cusp of a cashless society. The financial services industry would certainly like to see it that way. We are being enticed with contactless cards, mobile phone payment apps, and methods of bank transfer: all, apparently, for our convenience.

But as Ross Clark argues in this compelling new book, it is not in our interests to surrender the right to use cash. Commercial interests want us to pay electronically in order to collect valuable data on our spending habits, while governments would love us to move to cashless payments in order to control the economy in ways which suit them, not us.

If we choose to pay electronically, that is one thing, but we will regret it if we do not defend the right to pay with cash.

It took the world's greatest investor, Warren Buffett, nearly four decades to make his first $100m. The Deals of Warren Buffett - Volume 1 charts the series of investments that made up that journey.

In revealing detail, and with a lucid descriptive style, experienced author and investor Glen Arnold explains Buffett's thinking behind these investment deals and shows how his cumulative returns compounded his wealth over time.

In this formative period, from 1941-78, Buffett developed and honed the investment philosophy that would lead him to become so successful as his career progressed. But it was not all plain sailing - Buffett made mistakes along the way - and Arnold shows how Buffett learned through success and failure how to select companies worth backing. Arnold also includes insightful 'learning points' at the end of each chapter, which reveal how investors can learn from the craft of Warren Buffett to improve their own investing.

Investments featured in this first volume include: GEICO, American Express, Disney, Berkshire Hathaway, See's Candies, and The Washington Post.

With stories and analysis drawn from decades of investing experience, join Glen Arnold and delve deeper in The Deals of Warren Buffett!

The Debt Trap How leverage impacts private-equity performance

Purchase Price

RRP: £ 30.00 Our price: £ 25.00 save 17%
This is the inside story of private equity dealmaking.

Over the last 40 years, LBO fund managers have demonstrated that they are good at making money for themselves and their investors. But when one looks beneath the surface of the transactions they engineer, it is apparent that these deals can, at times, go spectacularly wrong.

Through 14 business stories, all emanating from the noughties' credit bubble and including headline-grabbing names like Caesars, Debenhams, EMI, Hertz, Seat Pagine Gialle and TXU, The Debt Trap shows how, via controversial practices like quick flips, repeat dividend recaps, heavy cost-cutting and asset-stripping, leveraged buyouts changed, for better or for worse, the way private companies are financed and managed today.

From technological disruption in the worlds of music recording and business-directory publishing to economic turbulence in the gambling, real estate and energy sectors, highly levered corporations are often incapable of handling market corrections when debt commitments start piling up. Behind the historical events and the financial empires erected by some of the elite private equity specialists, these 14 in-depth case studies examine how value-maximising techniques and a short-cut mentality can impact investment returns and portfolio assets.

Whether you are a PE practitioner, investor, business manager, academic or business student, you will find The Debt Trap to be an authoritative and fascinating account.

Quality Investing Owning the best companies for the long term

Purchase Price

Our price: £ 24.98
Quality. We all make judgments about it every day. Yet articulating a clear definition of quality in an investing context is challenging. This book addresses the challenge, and distills years of practical investing experience into a definitive account of this under-explored investment philosophy.

Finance theory has it that abnormal outcomes do not persist, that exceptional performance will soon enough become average performance. Quality investing involves seeking companies with the right attributes to overcome these forces of mean reversion and, crucially, owning these outstanding companies for the long term. This book pinpoints and explains the characteristics that increase the probability of a company prospering over time - as well as those that hinder such chances. Throughout, a series of fascinating real-life case studies illustrate the traits that signify quality, as well as some that flatter to deceive.

The authors' firm, AKO Capital, has a strong track record of finding and investing in quality companies - helping it deliver a compound annual growth rate more than double that of the market since inception. Quality Investing sheds light on the investment philosophy, processes and tough lessons that have contributed to this consistent outperformance.

Ratios Made Simple A beginner’s guide to the key financial ratios

Purchase Price

Our price: £ 4.99
Ratios provide an extremely effective method of understanding company accounts. At their most basic this usually involves taking one figure from the published accounts and dividing it by another - however, this seemingly simple process can reveal an enormous amount about both the nature and performance of a company.

'Ratios Made Simple' looks at ratios from the perspective of an investor, providing a toolkit for investors to use to accurately analyse a company from its accounts. This book is divided into nine chapters, with each chapter looking at a different aspect of potential concern to an investor:

1. Profitability Ratios
2. Investment Ratios
3. Dividend Cover
4. Margins
5. Gearing
6. Solvency Ratios
7. Efficiency Ratios
8. Policy Ratios
9. Volatility

For each ratio, financial expert Robert Leach provides a detailed definition, explains how it works, describes its use. Investors are also given a simple explanation of how to calculate each ratio, what the ratio means and how the investor should apply the answers in making investment decisions.

This book provides the investor with an essential guide to the use of these powerful analytical tools - tools that should form a vital part of an investor's decision-making process.

Let the market come to you

Deep Value Investing by Jeroen Bos is an incredibly candid and revealing guide to the secrets of deep value investment. Written by an investor with a long and remarkable track record, it shares for the first time the ins and outs of finding high-potential undervalued stocks before anyone else.

Deep value investing means finding companies that are genuine bargains that can pay back phenomenally over the long term. They are firms so cheap that even if they were to close tomorrow their assets would pay you out at a profit. But if they can turn things around, the rewards will be many times greater ...

These were the favourite shares of Benjamin Graham, author of 'The Intelligent Investor'. Inspired by Graham's classic and with a long history of discovering these great value stocks - sometimes known as 'bargain issues' or 'netnets' - author and investor Jeroen Bos reveals:

- how to use only publicly available information to discover these shares and filter the gold from the dross

- everything he did when analysing, purchasing, monitoring and selling more than ten recent successful deep value investments

- the complete philosophy behind deep value investing, and the ins and outs of this strategy in practice

- what can go wrong and how to minimise the chances of it happening to you.

Deep value investing has a better track record than almost any other approach to the market. Even better, it doesn't require minute and technical knowledge of a company, nor is it fixated on earnings or often-unreliable future projections.

It's all about the balance sheet and patience. This makes it the perfect investing approach for those who want to see phenomenal stock market returns without wasting time or commission costs.

The Myth of the Rational Market A History of Risk, Reward, and Delusion on Wall Street Justin Fox

Purchase Price

RRP: £ 4.45 Our price: £ 2.68 save 40%
Chronicling the rise and fall of the efficient market theory and the century-long making of the modern financial industry, Justin Fox's "The Myth of the Rational Market" is as much an intellectual whodunit as a cultural history of the perils and possibilities of risk. The book brings to life the people and ideas that forged modern finance and investing, from the formative days of Wall Street through the Great Depression and into the financial calamity of today. It's a tale that features professors who made and lost fortunes, battled fiercely over ideas, beat the house in blackjack, wrote bestselling books, and played major roles on the world stage. It's also a tale of Wall Street's evolution, the power of the market to generate wealth and wreak havoc, and free market capitalism's war with itself.

The efficient market hypothesis - long part of academic folklore but codified in the 1960s at the University of Chicago - has evolved into a powerful myth. It has been the maker and loser of fortunes, the driver of trillions of dollars, the inspiration for index funds and vast new derivatives markets, and the guidepost for thousands of careers. The theory holds that the market is always right, and that the decisions of millions of rational investors, all acting on information to outsmart one another, always provide the best judge of a stock's value. That myth is crumbling.

Celebrated journalist and columnist Fox introduces a new wave of economists and scholars who no longer teach that investors are rational or that the markets are always right. Many of them now agree with Yale professor Robert Shiller that the efficient markets theory "represents one of the most remarkable errors in the history of economic thought." Today the theory has given way to counterintuitive hypotheses about human behavior, psychological models of decision making, and the irrationality of the markets. Investors overreact, underreact, and make irrational decisions based on imperfect data. In his landmark treatment of the history of the world's markets, Fox uncovers the new ideas that may come to drive the market in the century ahead.

Take a bite out of the markets with the Naked Trader!

This book is for anyone who really wants to consistently make money trading shares.

Trading and investing can be tough – most fail. The human mind is to blame. It’s prone to emotion, cluttered with distractions like Twitter and social media, easily trapped by scams. But it’s possible to make money in the markets – and to do so reliably.

Robbie Burns, aka The Naked Trader, has been trading successfully from his home for 15 years – making over £2m tax-free (while eating a lot of toast and watching Game of Thrones). He’s also met and helped thousands of fellow traders at his seminars, seen every possible trading meltdown, and knows exactly what can go wrong – but also how to put it right.

In Trade Like a Shark, Robbie uses his unique firsthand experience and the real-life stories traders have shared with him to expose exactly how the human mind can play havoc with your trading. At the same time he reveals his tried-and-tested methods for overcoming it, showing how to be a shark, gobbling up money from the 'fish' who are full of fear, greed and other emotions. (And also why modelling yourself on Mr Spock can work wonders.)

If you’ve run into problems trading in the stock market – or just want to reinforce good habits – there is no better or wittier guide to the pitfalls that are out there, and some surprisingly effective ways to overcome them. It's a must-read book on trading psychology – without the jargon. Read it and take your trading to the next level now!

Initial Public Offerings The mechanics and performance of IPOs

Purchase Price

Our price: £ 10.00
An initial public offering (IPO) - the occasion when a firm's shares are issued to the public for the first time - is one of the most exciting events in the life of a company, providing new opportunities for the business, its managers and for investors. IPOs thus attract a lot of attention from stock market researchers, academics and investors seeking to understand more about how they work and how the shares of IPO companies perform once they are listed.

In this new book, Arif Khurshed delves into the history of IPOs on the London Stock Exchange, explains the mechanics of how IPOs are arranged and how they are priced, and provides an analysis - with detailed but lucid reference to past academic studies - of how the shares of IPO companies perform in the short and long term.

The book provides valuable insight into many fundamental IPO matters, including:
- the different methods of flotation that are used,
- the alternative ways in which IPO shares are priced,
- how common it is for IPO shares to over or underperform,
- the survival of IPO firms once they are listed.

There are also detailed case studies of a number of high-profile IPOs, including those of Google, Visa and MoneySupermarket.

If you are an academic, finance professional or serious investor looking to broaden your knowledge of stock market flotations then you will find Initial Public Offerings to be an indispensable guide.

Fundology The Secrets of Successful Fund Investing

Purchase Price

Our price: £ 8.95
Owning an investment fund is the easiest and most convenient way for investors to put their money to work in the world's financial markets. Yet only a handful of people really seem to understand how to make the most of the opportunity that funds offer. Too many pick the wrong fund in the wrong market at the wrong time - a sure-fire recipe for disappointment.

In this important new book, an award-winning manager at one of the UK's best fund management firms explains in simple language what it takes to buy and sell investment funds successfully - and how to avoid the common mistakes that so often condemn fund investors to poor results.

John Chatfeild-Roberts, head of the fund of funds team at Jupiter Asset Management, is responsible for sifting through the thousands of funds that are open to UK investors and hand-picking the best 10 - 15 for his clients' portfolios. The Jupiter Merlin range of funds has won a string of industry awards for their consistent performance.

Now, in Fundology - The Secrets of Successful Fund Investing, he explains in detail how to set about becoming an expert fund investor - what to do and (just as importantly) what not to do. While he concentrates on unit trusts and open-ended investment companies (OEICs), his specialist area, many of the principles outlined here apply equally well to other types of fund.

The topics covered include:

Conscious Investing Practitioners' views on holistic investing approaches that benefit people and the planet

Conscious investors are part of a growing movement who believe they can do better things with their money when they deeply connect with their money and when they allow themselves to see the big picture: namely, the wider systemic impact that their investment decisions entail.

Humanity’s current social and environmental challenges require us to dramatically rethink global growth for long-term prosperity and to transform capital markets into a force for good. This will need a fundamental shift towards a regenerative economy as well as a regenerative form of investing. Consciously reflecting and consciously acting upon one’s own personal- and financial choices will definitely be part of the solution. Conscious investors are profoundly connected to their mission in life, to humanity and to all the planet. To them investing is an extension of their life’s calling and they are aware that everything is not only connected, but also co-evolves in the web-of-life.

Conscious investing enlarges the picture beyond the intention to create a positive social and environmental impact, next to achieving a financial return, and brings a systemic view to the investor. It is both a state of awareness as well as a holistic form of impactful investing.

This book aims to share approaches to conscious investing that are valid for everyone: a normal person with a family to take care of, as well as dedicated impact investing enthusiasts. Throughout, you will find personal investment stories that have created tangible real-life outcomes and positive impact in multiple ways.

Conscious investors represent a new, enlightened group of investors who are not only value-driven but who proactively point their money towards the future they want for themselves, their children and their planet.

An attendee at the ill-fated Versailles Conference, John Maynard Keynes had a front-row seat for the negotiations that would squander a peace and sew discord across a continent. One of his best-written works, 'The Economic Consequences of the Peace' was key in propelling Keynes to prominence. Published in 1919, it gained notoriety owing to its withering portraits of both French premier Georges Clemenceau and US president Woodrow Wilson.

A best seller throughout the world, it was instrumental in creating the perception of the Germans as unfairly treated after the First World War. This in turn was crucial in prompting public support for appeasement, so that both the Treaty - and his eloquent criticisms of it - form a key part of the background to both World Wars I and II.

With the vast amount of information available on spread betting - whether in books, magazines, online, in videos or seminars and events - it's not easy to know where to start: How do you know who to listen to and what are the key lessons and tactics to take on board?

To help newcomers and experienced spread bettors, Harriman House has compiled this collection of essential spread betting rules - or top tips - from expert traders. The contributors are varied; including bestselling authors, education specialists, key figures at spread betting firms and technical analysts. What they all have in common a knowledge of what is required for spread betting success and real life experience of trading the markets.

In this book experts share what they consider to be the ten most important pieces of guidance that will help spread bettors to improve their profitability.

You will see that some of the experts agree on certain points, which is perhaps to be expected, but you will also notice that occasionally some of the rules contradict each other, which is possibly more surprising. The rules here are not intended to be picked up and all followed to the letter - there is no single correct approach to spread betting, or indeed any trading method. It is important to research the various ways others have been successful and then go on to find out what works best for you. This concise book gives you an excellent head start so that you can build on what winning spread bettors are already doing.

Study these rules from the best of the best and then develop your own as you take your own steps towards spread betting success.
