Описание: The Economic Naturalist is back with a whole batch of intriguing new questions and answers, drawn from his New York Times columns, that reveal how we really behave when confronted with economic choices. Do tax cuts for business owners really stimulate employment? Why shouldnt we just leave everything to the market? And why do we all save so little? Discover the answers to these and many more questions. With his trademark plain-speaking wit and insight, Robert Frank shows through dozens of examples how our personal choices about everything from paying for food and housing to large-scale policy decisions about taxation and the regulation of markets all boil down to the same simple economic principles, often resulting in the same wasteful mistakes.

He shows that while our desires may be boundless, the resources necessary to satisfy them remain limited and argues that choices are always best made pragmatically - by carefully weighing the costs and benefits of competing options. This is a fascinating, entertaining and revealing collection full of insights that have more bearing than ever on our bank balances and our personal happiness.

Описание: THE NEW YORK TIMES BESTSELLER

RICH-I-STAN n. 1. a new country located in the heart of America, populated entirely by millionaires, most of whom acquired their wealth during the new Gilded Age of the past twenty years. 2. a country with a population larger than Belgium and Denmark; typical citizens include "spud king" J. R. Simplot; hair stylist Sydell Miller, the new star of Palm Beach; and assorted oddball entrepreneurs. 3. A country that with a little luck and pluck, you, too, could be a citizen of.

The rich have always been different from you and me, but Robert Frank's revealing and funny journey through "Richistan" entertainingly shows that they are truly another breed.

Описание: College Tuition erases the notion that colleges are automatically trusted places of reverence. When it comes to finances, colleges lust for money and self-interest knows no bounds. The higher education system is broken and its future depends on developing a more productive mode of operation. This book is well documented with striking, clear, easy to understand data and illustrations. The writers unveil the issues most directly related to the unnecessary rise in costs, and will help college-bound students identify cost effective schools and use techniques to secure the most beneficial financial aid deals. It will better prepare the general public and spur policymakers, board members, presidents, donors and employees at every college and university to speak more forcefully on the subject of institutional finances. College costs continue to rise at a level twice the CPI while todays high unemployment is making jobs for graduates hard to come by. Add to these problems changing in financial aid and declining family income and you have the perfect storm for controversy. Students and parents across the country are seeking straightforward answers about why college costs have spiralled out of control and what they can do on a practical level to minimise their expenses.

Описание: Full of captivating profiles and expert insights into the lives and lifestyles of the nouveau riche, "Richistan" tells the real story of a new gilded age. The recent explosion of wealth has created a new breed of multimillionaires. Ed Bazinet, for example, who turned miniature ceramic villages into a $250 million fortune. Or Tim Blixseth, who became a billionaire by trading remote stretches of timberland. "Richistan" takes readers inside a rarified world to see how these blue-collar-workers-turned-billionaires are earning, spending, and living.
From ""Butler School,"" where domestics are specially trained to serve the newly wealthy, to self-help groups for coping with the strains of $10 million incomes, you'll discover how the nouveaux riches learn to be riche. In addition, Frank investigates where their money is going. With so much in the hands of so few, the personal whims of the extremely wealthy can make or break charities and research foundations. Will they support cancer research or the arts? Supernatural exploration or archaeological digs? The influence wielded by the newly wealthy goes far beyond their fashion choices or participation in reality TV shows.
"Richistan" looks behind the glitz to find the real story behind new money and its impact on the richest nation in the world.

Описание: high-beta rich (hi be'ta rich) 1. a newly discovered personality type of the America upper class prone to wild swings in wealth. 2. the winners (and occasional losers) in an economy that creates wealth from financial markets, asset bubbles and deals. 3. derived from the Wall Street term "high-beta," meaning highly volatile or prone to booms and busts. 4. an elite that's capable of wreaking havoc on communities, jobs, government finances, and the consumer economy. 5. a new Potemkin plutocracy that hides a mountain of debt behind the image of success, and is one crisis away from losing their mansions, private jets and yachts.
The rich are not only getting richer, they are becoming more dangerous. Starting in the early 1980s the top one percent broke away from the rest of us to become the most unstable force in the economy. An elite that had once been the flat line on the American income charts - models of financial propriety - suddenly set off on a wild ride of economic binges.
Not only do they control more than a third of the country's wealth, their increasing vulnerability to the booms and busts of the stock market wreak havoc on our consumer economy, financial markets, communities, employment opportunities, and government finances.
Robert Frank's insightful analysis provides the disturbing big picture of high-beta wealth. His vivid storytelling brings you inside the mortgaged mansions, blown-up balance sheets, repossessed Bentleys and Gulfstreams, and wrecked lives and relationships:
- How one couple frittered away a fortune trying to build America's biggest house --90,000 square feet with 23 full bathrooms, a 6,000 square foot master suite with a bed on a rotating platform--only to be forced to put it on the market because "we really need the money."
- Repo men who are now the scavengers of the wealthy, picking up private jets, helicopters, yachts and racehorses - the shiny remains of a decade of conspicuous consumption financed with debt, asset bubbles, "liquidity events," and soaring stock prices.
- How "big money ruins everything" for communities such as Aspen, Colorado whose over-reliance on the rich created a stratified social scene of velvet ropes and A-lists and crises in employment opportunities, housing, and tax revenues.
- Why California's worst budget crisis in history is due in large part to reliance on the volatile incomes of the state's tech tycoons.
- The bitter divorce of a couple who just a few years ago made the Forbes 400 list of the richest people, the firing of their enormous household staff of 110, and how one former spouse learned the marvels of shopping at Marshalls, filling your own gas tank, and flying commercial.
Robert Frank's stories and analysis brilliantly show that the emergence of the high-beta rich is not just a high-class problem for the rich. High-beta wealth has national consequences: "America's dependence on the rich + great volatility among the rich = a more volatile America. "
Cycles of wealth are now much faster and more extreme. The rich are a new "Potemkin Plutocracy" and the important lessons and consequences are brought to light of day in this engrossing book.

Описание: Why the Few at the Top Get So Much More Than the Rest of Us. Why does the top one percent of the population capture such a disproportionate amount of the wealth? Why do top athletes win dozens of sponsorship deals, yet competitors who finish just moments behind struggle to attract a single deal? Why does one product become a runaway success, while others flounder and fall? The answer is the rise of `winner-take-all` markets, in which small differences in performance lead to huge differences in reward.
