Real estate is sold as a much safer investment than the constantly fluctuating stock market. Share price volatility is compared unfavourably with the steadier and impressive gains made from real estate which is, we are told, ‘as safe as houses’. As millions of Americans – and countless others in the Western world - have recently found to their cost, house prices can also suddenly and dramatically drop. Yet no other text on real estate, either current or from the past, mentions this fact, reinforcing the perception that real estate is an almost risk-free investment.Now for the first time, and long overdue, a book that details and explains the cyclical nature of real estate.The latest real estate downturn in the USA (and in other countries) is just one of many that have occurred since 1800 with astonishing regularity. This book is the story of the American experience of those downturns: the move out of recession, how the banking system facilitates that move, the boom and the characters that shaped it, the bust and accompanying bank failures, and then the recession, or worse, depression. This is always followed by a new cycle repeating each phase again, varied only by the new ways bankers find to avoid the regulations put in place after each collapse to ensure it will never happen again.The Secret Life of Real Estate and Banking explains, quite simply, how the real estate cycle originates, offers a fascinating study of US history to illustrate the stages through which each cycle passes, then explains why this cycle of boom and bust must repeat, given present economic conditions. Real estate can only be a truly winning investment if you know the cycle. For investors, the author has designed an 18-year Real Estate Clock which plots the progress of the cycle, with tell-tale signs so that investors can recognise exactly where they are in the cycle at any point in time and so help them decide whether to invest, sit tight or sell. He has refined this clock over a period of many years and those who have attended his courses have found it an invaluable and remarkably accurate guide for their investment strategies, not only in real estate.With its invaluable insights and practical guidance, The Secret Life of Real Estate and Banking is a book for both novice and experienced investors alike who want to know why the real estate cycle moves as it does, learn how this movement can be forecast well in advance, and more importantly, wish to learn how to profit from this knowledge. A must read for any serious investor.

Why are house prices in many advanced economies rising faster than incomes? Why isn’t land and location taught or seen as important in modern economics? What is the relationship between the financial system and land? In this accessible but provocative guide to the economics of land and housing, the authors reveal how many of the key challenges facing modern economies - including housing crises, financial instability and growing inequalities - are intimately tied to the land economy. Looking at the ways in which discussions of land have been routinely excluded from both housing policy and economic theory, the authors show that in order to tackle these increasingly pressing issues a major rethink by both politicians and economists is required.

It's time to wake up or get wiped out. We live in a world dominated by a system that most of us aren’t aware of, never mind understand.

We simply don’t recognise the game that is being played out in front of us. Well check your pockets; you’re in for a nasty shock. OUCH! is your entertaining answer to financial fear, ignorance or confusion. Quintessentially irreverent but with a deadly serious message - ultimately it tells you how to protect your hard earned cash and save yourself from financial meltdown. You can’t afford to ignore it.

This book offers a completely new and unique introduction to the economics of international relations. It treats all the traditional major themes of international relations theory while giving each a refreshing new twist with the incorporation of the influence of private power, particularly in the realm of war and peace. It reframes the history of the modern global economy and politics by thoroughly purging the myth of the market, a systematic blindness to private power. It not only draws on, but also illuminates major themes and empirical findings of comparative politics, business history, business strategy, business cycle theory, social evolutionary theory as well as the practical wisdom of traders and investors. Part one introduces the major concepts of competing theories of international relations, emphasizing a unique approach, corporatism. Part two introduces the critical importance dynamic and oppositional analysis of issues. Part three traces the rise of the modern world from the mercantilist period until the rise of modern corporate organizations and the demise of imperialism in the crucible of World War I. Part four begins with the origins of the contemporary dominance of business internationalism before and during World War II, then analyzes three major facets of the postwar era: the unification of much of Europe, the industrialization of the Third World, and the Cold War and its aftermath. The final chapter considers the present and future of a fairly peaceful yet economically unstable world. This book presents a refreshing and exciting portrayal of the global economy which challenges every major subject from money to markets to the business cycle. This book eschews the economics of dull averages to restore the drama of contending business forces, struggling for wealth and, in the process, influencing war and peace.

How much do we spend on the nature we use? Answer that and you'll know the size of your commonwealth and the coming phase of the economy. Most economists bundle land with capital or leave out land and its rent altogether—and cripple their discipline. "Geonomists", OTOH, forecast the last recession to the exact quarter. Counting Bounty highlights a widespread blindspot. Most of us overlook land and its power to twist an economy. Householders typically spend most of their budget on land —beneath their homes and within every purchase like food—without awareness. Tallying rent, this work fills in those blindspots with insights society needs to know. It's not possible to do economics without getting politics all over you. The story begins with the official and academic efforts to minimize the total worth of Earth in America. A perusal of the historical relationship between the elite and the intellectual shows that paying the piper, calling the tune, is the norm, even up to the present. Using a slew of statistics and others' research findings, I track rent to its recipients, to the rentiers who own much and wield much power. The cited sources give the story more legs to stand on than a centipede. Aware reformers can address pressing problems by tapping land value. Towns in Pennsylvania infill instead of sprawl; efficient land use conserves energy. Pittsburgh spurs urban renewal sans subsidy; cities are cash starved. Once towns in Australia experienced factory openings ... during a recession! Aspen Colorado and Hong Kong build affordable housing, narrowing inequality. Alaska and Singapore pay residents a dividend, freeing some to drop out of the rat race. Watching rent flow sheds light on how economies operate, why they sometimes fail, and what a society can do about it. As critical issues reach a tipping point, the problems that misdirecting rent causes, redirecting rent can solve. Drawing attention to the grand total for rent by itself raises the possibility of redirecting
