April 2017 marks 20 years since Robert Kiyosaki’s Rich Dad Poor Dad first made waves in the Personal Finance arena.
It has since become the #1 Personal Finance book of all time... translated into dozens of languages and sold around the world.
Rich Dad Poor Dad is Robert's story of growing up with two dads — his real father and the father of his best friend, his rich dad — and the ways in which both men shaped his thoughts about money and investing. The book explodes the myth that you need to earn a high income to be rich and explains the difference between working for money and having your money work for you.
20 Years... 20/20 Hindsight
In the 20th Anniversary Edition of this classic, Robert offers an update on what we’ve seen over the past 20 years related to money, investing, and the global economy. Sidebars throughout the book will take readers “fast forward” — from 1997 to today — as Robert assesses how the principles taught by his rich dad have stood the test of time.
In many ways, the messages of Rich Dad Poor Dad, messages that were criticized and challenged two decades ago, are more meaningful, relevant and important today than they were 20 years ago.
As always, readers can expect that Robert will be candid, insightful... and continue to rock more than a few boats in his retrospective.
Will there be a few surprises? Count on it.
Rich Dad Poor Dad...
• Explodes the myth that you need to earn a high income to become rich
• Challenges the belief that your house is an asset
• Shows parents why they can't rely on the school system to teach their kids about money
• Defines once and for all an asset and a liability
• Teaches you what to teach your kids about money for their future financial success
Recession, inflation, interest rates, income tax, exchange rates, junk bonds … We are bombarded with these terms every day, but what do they actually mean? And how do they affect you?
In this updated edition of Everyone’s Guide to the South African Economy, all these issues – and more – are addressed. The book clearly explains and evaluates a wide range of economic occurrences – from the budget and the rand/dollar exchange rate to the balance of payments and the role of the South African Reserve Bank.
The book investigates the causes and consequences of the 2008/2009 global financial and economic crisis, looks at the sub-Saharan African economy, and explores human development issues in South Africa and their implications for policy-making.
If you are baffled by the specialised jargon of economists and bankers and want to know more about the economic forces that subtly dictate your day-to-day existence, Everyone’s Guide to the South African Economy will put you in the picture. This is essential reading for every South African consumer and taxpayer. Economics, after all, is too important to be left to economists.
An essential desk reference for stock brokers, private investors, employees in finance positions, business school students, commerce students, corporate managers or anyone trying to make sense of the financial media. The South African Dictionary of Finance gives guidance of the terminology you will come across in the finance world in plain, understandable English. The rapidly evolving world of finance keeps on generating new products, ideas, concepts and language that anyone seriously interested in money needs to get to grips with. Some of the concepts are peculiar to South Africa but many are international terms. All are essential to master in the areas of finance and banking.
South Africa's financial markets are consistently praised as the most advanced in Africa, while its financial regulatory system, particularly at stock exchange level, has been judged on more than one occasion to be the best in the world. Regulatory excellence was no doubt an important factor in the unusual resilience displayed by the financial sector during the global financial crisis of 2007/8. However, South African regulatory authorities, not wanting to be complacent, are continuing to follow international good-practice initiatives to enhance the resilience and integrity of the financial system. Market practitioners, too, are striving to keep up to date with financial and technical innovation, globalisation, increased competition and the blurring of traditional boundaries between financial institutions and financial products and services. Understanding South African financial markets provides a comprehensive overview of the various aspects of South African financial markets and the institutions that operate within them. Understanding South African financial markets has been compiled by practitioners from the financial markets and experienced faculty members in economics and financial management. Each chapter starts with study objectives relevant to the material covered. Jargon that may be unfamiliar is explained in lay terms, and both international and local market practices and norms are discussed where relevant. Understanding South African financial markets is an introductory text that should serve as a useful reference and guide for commerce students, public servants and members of the business fraternity alike. Karin van Wyk is the CEO of the South African Institute of Financial Markets, a professional body for the financial markets recognised by SAQA. SAIFM conducts examinations for the financial markets and the JSE Ltd. She holds a BA (Law) and an LLB from the University of Pretoria, and a BCom (Economics and Business Economics) from Unisa. She also holds a Diploma in Financial Markets from the University of Johannesburg.
The role of a financial manager is to ensure the financial
sustainability of a firm by maintaining a firmís profitability,
liquidity and solvency. Sales may generate revenue, but it is only
when credit sales are converted into cash once debtors settle their
accounts that these goals are achieved.
"The Pure Theory of Capital," F. A. Hayek's long-overlooked,
little-understood volume, was his most detailed work in economic
theory. Originally published in 1941 when fashionable economic
thought had shifted to John Maynard Keynes, Hayek's manifesto of
capital theory is now available again for today's students and
economists to discover.
