A Fool With a Tool: Blair Goulet
Ship of Fools:How Stupidity and Corruption Sank the Celtic Tiger Fintan O´Toole
For twenty years, Ireland´s economic miracle was supposed to be the envy of the world. For years, those with economic power had been investing in a gigantic property bubble. In Ship of Fools Fintan O´Toole tells the story of this dizzying rise and sickening fall. This is the essential analysis of Ireland´s economic suicide.
In this long-anticipated, groundbreaking guide to building a seven-figure portfolio, acclaimed stock pickers and Internet pioneers David and Tom Gardner lay bare the simple philosophy that they have used to help millions of grateful individual investors outfox the professionals on Wall Street. The research, the stories, and the results that underpin this audio stem from the revolutionary and wildly successful Motley Fool Million Dollar Portfolio. a one-of-a-kind web experiment in which individual investors follow along as Motley Fool co-founder Tom Gardner invests and manages $1 million of The Motley Fool´s own money. Listeners are offered a first-class education in building, growing, and defending an individual portfolio, one investment strategy at a time. From learning to think like an investor to finding a first stock, from international investing to community-based online tools, this audiobook takes the reader through the essential strategies for building any portfolio, no matter how small its start or how big its ambitions. 1.

It may be as important for investors to know what not to do in investing as to know what to do. While investors are bombarded with the ´´buy me, buy me´´ books, little is said to train them in what to avoid. Nobody Knows Anything teaches investors what to avoid and how to trade using their own knowledge and experience rather than simply following the lemmings over the cliff of the latest investment craze. The book will teach an investor about human behavior, contrarian investing, deviation and regression to the mean and other simple basic tools of investing successfully. 1. Language: English.

Between 1995 and 2007, the Republic of Ireland was the worldwide model of successful adaptation to economic globalisation. The success story was phenomenal: a doubling of the workforce; a massive growth in exports; a GDP that was substantially above the EU average. Ireland became the world´s largest exporter of software and manufactured the world´s supply of Viagra. The factors that made it possible for Ireland to become prosperous - progressive social change, solidarity, major state investment in education, and the critical role of the EU - were largely ignored as too sharply at odds with the dominant free-market ideology. The Irish boom was shaped instead into a simplistic moral tale of the little country that discovered low taxes and small government and prospered as a result.There were two big problems. Ireland acquired a hyper-capitalist economy on the back of a corrupt, dysfunctional political system. And the business class saw the influx of wealth as an opportunity to make money out of property. Aided by corrupt planning and funded by poorly regulated banks, an unsustainable property-led boom gradually consumed the Celtic Tiger. This is, as Fintan O´Toole writes, ´´a good old-fashioned jeremiad about the bastards who got us into this mess´´. It is an entertaining, passionate story of one of the most ignominious economic reversals in recent history. 1. Language: English. Narrator: Roger Clark.

Two hundred thirty-two poems, 232 stories of life, from birth to death, domestic bliss to domestic violence, political stupidity to flatulent bus travelers, celebration, mourning, joy, sadness… Poetry in this data-saturated age is not, for most, a viable way to make a living. So why expend the time and energy to create something that few people will listen to and even fewer will purchase? To which I must ask, why do people sing in the rain, paint pictures, dance? Because it provides pleasure and reward and perhaps even keeps them sane. As a writer of fiction and nonfiction, I am most concerned with story. When I write poetry, I view it not as some lofty literary tool to fool or condescend, but as an exercise in crafting story within the strictest confines. White Trash & Southern is a collection of such exercises, spanning nearly three decades. To create a complex story within a limited number of words - to communicate far more than appears - is a challenge that can provide enormous reward and satisfaction. Sometimes I succeed. Sometimes I don´t. But at least I remain sane. Sort of, C.S. Fuqua. 1. Language: English. Narrator: C.S. Fuqua. Audio sample: http://samples.audible.de/bk/acx0/012729/bk_acx0_012729_sample.mp3.
