Additional information on "The Clipper Ship Strategy: For Success in Your Career, Business and Investments" by Richard J. Maybury

 

DESCRIPTION

The Clipper Ship Strategy by Richard J. Maybury explains how government's interference in the economy affects business, careers, and investments.  It's a practical nuts-and-bolts strategy for prospering in our turbulent economy.

Conventional wisdom says that when the government expands the money supply, the money descends on the economy in a uniform blanket. This is incorrect. The money is injected into specific locations causing hot spots or "cones."

In The Clipper Ship Strategy Mr. Maybury explains a system for tracking and profiting from these cones, for locating genuine money-making opportunities, and for avoiding those which are false or dangerous.  Includes step-by-step instructions, and clever illustrations that make the system easy to understand. Explains how to cope with recessions and avoid unemployment.

Using the epistolary style of writing (using letters to tell a story), Mr. Maybury plays the part of an economist (Uncle Eric) writing a series of letters to his niece or nephew (Chris). Using stories and examples, Mr. Maybury gives interesting and clear explanations of topics that are generally thought to be too difficult for anyone but experts.

Mr. Maybury warns, "beware of anyone who tells you a topic is above you or better left to experts. Many people are twice as smart as they think they are, but they've been intimidated into believing some topics are above them. You can understand almost anything if it is explained well."

The Clipper Ship Strategy is the second sequel to Whatever Happened to Penny Candy? and should be read after The Money Mystery?

REVIEWS

"Richard Maybury's new book, The Clipper Ship Strategy, is an outstanding addition to his series dealing with the subjects of economics, law, politics, business and freedom. His extraordinary ability to present complex subjects in simple, common-sense terms, spiced with humor and fascinating examples, makes this book and the others in the series must reading for both the young and adults, alike. In fact, the entire series should be a required, integral, component of the social studies curriculum in all public and private schools. This would bring a quantum leap upward in the quality of citizenship in this country in a single generation."  — William P. Snavely, Emeritus Professor of Economics, George Mason University

"While Maybury's 'lessons' are valuable for everyone, I especially recommend this book to potential entrepreneurs and businessmen. I would make it required reading for them if I could. (Those who might be employees can also find out how to select a career and/or company to work for that is likely to remain economically healthy!)"  — Cathy Duffy, Author, Christian Home Educators' Curriculum Manual

"I use it [the clipper ship strategy] in my business and investments. It works great!"  — Barry Conner, President, The Home Place, Inc.
