4-0 out of 5 stars fair
This book is designed essentially all audiences, i.e., it could an easy read for undergraduate economic students. The book, while somewhat repetitive, is a good 'read' especially as one of the authors is now the Chairman of the Federal Reserve who advocates inflation targeting.
3-0 out of 5 stars Yawn
I have never been a fan of condensed books for the obvious reason that they leave out content and motivation.This book, however, could be shrunk by 3/4 without any real loss.Yes, there is much in-depth case studyinformation here, but the paper could have been much better used bysubstituting much of it for some harder, theoretical motivation andanalytical discussions.The authors are capable of this.Also, despitethe painstaking redundent detail and a few regressions, for me the authorsfail to place inflation targeting and inflation targeting countries intothe greater context of inflationary policies and countries facinginflation.It surprises me that there is no mention of some of the,especially developing countries, where inflation has been a serious problemand where most battles of the future are likely to be fought.

3-0 out of 5 stars Heavy on the case studies and mildly repetitive.
An easy to read book for people of all levels. It takes the reader through case studies on the various countries which have introduced inflation targeting. This is interesting from a historical perspective, but sinceinflation targeting really is a very simple concept (announce an inflationtarget, describe why you aim to hit this target, make it clear how youshall go about achieving this target and at all times be transparent inyour pursuit of that target) the book tends to be repetitive. This booksimply goes over too many similar regimes and thus cannot help but coverthe same points over again. The last chapter is a study of the U.S. (a rareexample of a country with very steady inflation which has not introduced anexplicit inflation target) with some recommendations on how (and why) itshould implement an inflation target. This book is recommended if you wantvery indepth case studies on the introduction of inflation targeting incountries as different as Sweden, New Zealand, The U.K. and Australia, butif you only need a quick overview of what inflation targeting is then buy agood general Economics textbook and read the section on it. ...

5-0 out of 5 stars Informative Silver Facts
A well written book in simplied terms that can inform the new investor or professional manager/trader.There is some great insight as to why the great underevaluation of silver relative to gold & copper exists.It gives great advice on how one can profit from silver via physicals, futures and stocks.The photography myth is explained as well.For its low cost it a mandatory read for someone considering investment in silver, silver futures/options and/or silve stocks.

1-0 out of 5 stars Need convincing or singing to the choir?
I was disappointed.If you are a skeptic who needs to be convinced to invest in silver, including history lessons, this is the book for you.
4-0 out of 5 stars Tell me more about Silver Mr. Morgan!
The author, David Morgan sets forth a compilation of his own and several other individuals' viewpoints as to the supply / demand & fundementals of silver. He cites many experts on the subject and is fairly articulate and concise. He also speaks of 5 or 6ways for the retail public to invest in silver.

5-0 out of 5 stars How to Survive an Inflationary Crisis in the Twenty-First Century
~The Hyperinflation Survival Guide~ offers strategies for business managers to keep their enterprise afloat in the midst of runaway inflation.I've spent a great deal of time studying Austrian and Chicago school economists, and would say that economist Gerald Swanson has really done his homework with The Hyperinflation Survival Guide.Within this succinct little book are a plethora of sensible business strategies for American businesses.If businesses are to survive they must effectively counter and minimize the ill effects of rampant inflation and/or hyperinflation.The utmost prudence is required in managing accounts receivable, inventory, and production at such a time.A sudden inflationary economic downturn may very well bring a business to its knees leading to insolvency.So it is vitally requisite to be prepared to operate prudently and insulate a business from the ill effects of runaway inflation.You have to know the rules of the game and be prepared, and the rules are stacked against unprepared business managers.Swanson offers financial management and marketing strategies, and offers concise explanations of the inflationary phenomenon.

5-0 out of 5 stars An Exceptional Guide to Investment and Money Management
The Unofficial Guide to Online Investing by Henry Robb is an excellent guide for the individual investor. If you're looking for an extremely thorough, reader-friendly, comprehensive reference tool for not only online investing but a myriad of other vital financial concerns, look no further. It's obvious that the author took great pains in putting this book together. It's wonderfully written in an interesting, easy-to-understand style that doesn't intimidate or confuse the reader. On the contrary, you get the feeling that Mr. Robb has been an investment veteran for a number of years and through his day-to-day experience in dealing with the various financial markets, he has gained a great deal of wisdom on the subject. 1-0 out of 5 stars Should be titled "The Unofficial Guide to Personal Finance"
This book should have been titled "The Unofficial Guide to Personal Finance". Only Part IV, chapters 10 through 13, about 160 pages are devoted to online investing, and it's at a very elementary level. The rest of the book deals with bank accounts, credit cards, debt reduction, insurance, taxes, and other personal finance issues. If you want to learn about Online Investing, leave this book on the shelf and look for another book which has doesn't have all this non-Online Investing stuff. Leave this POS on the shelf.

5-0 out of 5 stars An Outstanding Reference

5-0 out of 5 stars I have read this book again and again for ten years.
Allow me to pay respect and compliment to Mr. Don Paarlberg here. Mr. Don Paarlberg has an insightful understanding of human nature and their behavior that his examination and explanations of inflation history grab my intention very time I read this book. They make a lot of senses and transform my knowledge of economics into a penetrating understanding of human behavior and reactions to certain events. Mr. Don Paarlberg elevates my perspective toward macro-economics to a higher level, that of a human behavioral one, and certainly broadens my eyesight with regard to how human nature and human behavior did not change over the past two thousand years or so in terms of what people would do in reaction to price drivers. Lastly, I appreciate Mr. Don Paarlberg's exquisite, precise, and concise way of writing, something much less seen nowadays. Thank you, Mr. Don Paarlberg. ... Read more

3-0 out of 5 stars Shilling's use of Kondratieff theory
A careful look at the book shows that Shilling's THEORY for deflation is based on the longwaves of Kondratieff. Shilling uses a real (as in real business cycle literature) rather than a monetary interpretation (a la Milton Friedman, Irving Fisher..) of longwaves which results in his use of 1974 (following the oil shock) rather than 1980 (following the tight monetary policies by central banksunder the guise of Monetarist doctrine) as the beginning of the current wave down.

5-0 out of 5 stars Excellent book, easy to read, in depth analysis
I found this easy-to-read book very profound in its analysis of the inflation-disinflation-deflation pattern that we are witnessing today.4-0 out of 5 stars Informed & rational summary of a plausible scenario.
Shilling predicts good - rather than bad deflation (at least for the USA): i.e. surging demand absorbing excess supply because of price falls.It isa US-centric view - weaker on the international side. Deflation addressesan important & neglected subject. The slow start is tolerable becauseof good, up-to-date graphs and data generally.Happily he isconsultant-clear rather than economist-arcane. His analysis of the USeconomy is compelling & useful for foreign readers.Nonetheless, thereare questions: will policymakers (including central bankers) not adjust;e.g. I understand that defense spending has started rising again. Shilling's review of factors such as the internet is useful.The foreignmaterial is poorer - though his Asian chapters are good.Bizarrely forsuch a serious & scholarly work, there is no index.Read more
