Mastering the Market Cycle  is a must-read Howard Marks's  Mastering the Market Cycle  is a must-read, because the cycles covered in this book are important and because Howard is one of the investing greats of his generation. I always say, 'There's no better teacher than history in determining the future.' Howard's book tells us how to learn from history . . . and thus get a better idea of what the future holds. Howard Marks, among the world's most successful investment managers as well as an intellectual leader of the profession [has written a new book].  Mastering the Market Cycle  is... wise ...A careful reading  can make us better investors  and protect us from the all too frequent errors that ruin investment results. ( Wall Street Journal ) While most investment professionals take the standard out - that 'you can't time the market' - in  Mastering the Market Cycle  Howard Marks, a living investment legend, takes the contrarian point of view that not only can you time markets, but it's imperative that you do so. Mastering the Market Cycle  reveals how cycles not only coincide with, but also cause, financial market risk and opportunity. Written in plain English, Howard Marks's hard-earned wisdom will help readers tilt the odds in their favor. If you're uncertain as to whether there will be a correction in the market - or if you think there's no reason to worry because 'it's different this time' - you have to read this book before you make a move.

The retail banking sector has undergone immense change over the last decade, such that the industry is barely recognisable. The creation of the European Single Market has of necessity initiated deregulation, whilst the increase in telephone and internet banking has impacted on economies of scale. Financial services organisations are now able to compete in previously uncharted territory, to considerable effect. Taking the reader on a journey of discovery through the economic theory behind the practice and the consequences that follow, the authors have created a fascinating insight into the current state of European retail banking. The authors use their extensive research to display the rationale behind the increasing trend towards consolidation and efficiency. Well argued and well researched, this is a must read for all people with an interest in the European Banking market, from investors to bankers and students alike.

"Akerlof and Shiller extend the standard ‘market failure' theory--which says that there is a potential role for government intervention when markets fail--by showing that markets fail not only because of the familiar reasons of externalities and unfair income distribution, but also because of the pervasive phenomenon of ‘phishing for phools' (profit-seeking through manipulation and deception). They point the way to a new paradigm freed from the constraints of market failure theory, able to illuminate ‘control by capital' (partly through phishing) and to prescribe for ‘control of capital' (partly by techniques for limiting phishing suggested here)."--Robert H. Wade, London School of Economics "This insightful book exposes a fundamental contradiction in the market system. Consumers and policymakers beware: profit-seeking businesses foster efficiency and innovation, but have strong incentives to manipulate you and sophisticated new data tools allow them to do so in personalized ways."--Laura D'Andrea Tyson, University of California, Berkeley "This fun but serious book tells how the standard story about free markets often gets it wrong. Indeed, Akerlof and Shiller suggest that we should drop the view of markets as generally benign institutions. The argument is laid out with the help of fascinating anecdotes, the language is conversational, and the book is easy to read. It is addressed to a broad audience, but economists will enjoy it too.

Reinvent best practices that have become bad habits Without meaning to, and often with the best of intentions, most organizations continually waste precious time and money on processes and activities that don't create value and no longer make sense in today's business environment. Until now, the relatively slow speed of marketplace evolution has allowed wasteful habits to continue without consequence. This reality is ending. Detonate explains how organizations built up bad habits, identifies which ones masquerade as "best practices," and suggests alternatives that can contribute to winning in the marketplace. With a focus on optimism and empowerment, it focuses on an approach and mindset which are critical to successfully compete in an era characterized by profound technological advances and uncertainty. - Core themes challenge how you think about and approach problems - Case studies illustrate the challenges you face and how to overcome them - Recommendations are pragmatic and steer clear of suggesting a brand-new, complicated wiring diagram - Actionable advice provides the first steps down an evolutionary path If you want to compete differently in today's marketplace and to challenge the things your company does which you have a nagging feeling are actually just a waste of time and maybe value-destroying Detonate gives you what you need to ignite change. Every day companies delude themselves about what it really takes to survive. They follow orthodoxy and "best practice" without deeply thinking about why they do. For a long time, market conditions allowed this automatic, non-thinking choice to work without meaningful consequence. But this reality is shifting dramatically and accelerating at a speed that few are ready for. Detonateis the counterintuitive book that challenges organizations to question the very things that create an illusion of stability. It reveals how bad habits form, provides recommendations on how to spot and blow up so called "best practices," and suggests alternatives that will help you win. The authors explore the nature of change and why the future is unlikely to be governed by many lessons from the past, and provide practical advice for how to change: the book outlines four guiding principles and the seven specific "normal operating business procedures" that should be replaced with new practices.

An examination of the role of theory in applied econometrics. Econometrics is a study of good and bad ways to measure economic relations. In this book, Bernt Stigum considers the role that economic theory ought to play in such measurements and proposes a formal science of economics that provides the means to solve the measurement problems faced by econometric researchers. After describing the salient parts of a formal science of economics, Stigum compares its methods with the methods of contemporary applied econometrics. His goal is to develop a basis for meaningful discussion of the best way to incorporate economic theory in empirical analysis. Stigum conceives two scenarios for research in applied econometrics: contemporary econometrics in the tradition of Trygve Haavelmo and the formal theory-data confrontation envisioned by Ragnar Frisch. Stigum presents case studies of economic phenomena, contrasting the empirical analysis prescribed by contemporary applied econometrics with the empirical analysis prescribed by a formal theory-data confrontation. He finds significant and provocative differences. Which are we to believe when the statistical analyses of these two methodologies yield very different descriptions of the behavior characteristics of data variables and inferences about social reality? Stigum points to three aspects of contemporary econometric methodology that may benefit from serious discussions: the analysis of positively valued time series, a suspect characteristic of qualitative response models, and the search for linearly cointegrated time series. These three aspects are of as much concern to formal econometrics as they are to contemporary econometrics.

"In Intangible Assets, Jeffrey Cohen presents an informative, thought–provoking and practical look at an increasingly important component of every business′s worth. He describes the art and science of identifying assets that have clear economic benefit, but are typically not found on the balance sheet, and he provides an invaluable framework within which the reader can value these assets, despite their elusive nature." ––Rick Westervelt, President, Skylist, Inc. "Jeffrey Cohen′s integrative approach to conceptual issues of intangible assets is creative and a refreshing contribution. He brings law, economics, finance, and accounting to the same table, which results in a comprehensive framework for understanding how value is created and sustained. His construct of ′proto–assets′ and ′portfolio of intangible economic benefits′ is key. Written in an easy–to–read style with many practical examples, this book will be useful for both novice and experienced professionals." ––W. Dana Northcut, PhD, Adjunct Associate Professor of Accounting Graduate School of Business, University of Chicago Principal, Chicago Partners, LLC "This volume is the perfect resource for newcomers to IP valuation. Through lucid explanations and well–chosen illustrations, it does for the reader exactly what a valuation expert should do for a client––it makes the abstract concrete. But this volume is not just for the novice; it holds insights that will be useful to IP experts in law, accounting, and economics." ––Edward F. Malone, Partner, Jenner & Block LLP
