economic hegemony (The House of Rothschild: Money's Prophets, 1798-1848,

English branch of the clan for this monumental authorized history. Ferguson
makes their engrossing story an advanced seminar on the financial history of Europe.

              Japanese Interfirm Networks and Their Main Banks by Mark J. Scher.
Hardcover - 176 pages (December 1997).
Reviews:
A reader from Chicago, IL , November 19, 1997 - Revealing insight into Japan's
financial markets Few Americans have the experience and breadth of knowledge
about the Japanese economy as Mark Scher, who has spent the last 25 years
mining its secrets. Finding that most western Paradigms about the Japanese
economy don't fit the facts, Scher developed his own. Scher's work is widely
known and respected in Europe (his Phd is from the University of Manchester,
no less). However, our "Chicago School" economists will not be satisfied with
a perspective that suggests that something other than a totally free market can work.

              Trading for a Living : Psychology, Trading Tactics, Money
Management (Wiley Finance Edition)
by Dr. Alexander Elder.
Hardcover - 289 pages (April 1993).
Reviews:
Larry Kowallis from Riverside, CA , September 22, 1999 - Dr. Elder goes right
to the heart of successful trading. It's hard to understand how anyone who
understands trading stocks could not love this book. Dr. Elder explains, in
easy to understand terms, how to protect your money as well as how to make
money. This is a book for beginners as well as seasoned traders. This is the
first book all potential traders should start with. It doesn't waste time on boring
mathematical formulas or an in depth history of trading. It glosses over the
trivial and focuses on the important things that will make you money. I teach
stock market classes and this is the first book I recommend to all my students.
It was recommended to my nephew as THE book to read by Bert Dohmen,
a millionaire options trader.
