Additional information on "The Money Mystery: The Hidden Force Affecting Your Career, Business and Investments, 3rd Edition" by Richard J. Maybury

 

DESCRIPTION

The Money Mystery further expands on the economic model presented in Whatever Happened to Penny Candy?

The Money Mystery explains the hidden force effecting your career, business, and investments. Some economics refer to this force as velocity, others to money demand. Whichever term is used, it is one of the least understood forces affecting your life. Knowing about velocity and money demand not only gives you an understanding of history that few others have, it prepares you to understand and avoid pitfalls in your career, business, and investments.

During the 1980s the velocity of circulation of the dollar became erratic; now the whole country is affected. The Money Mystery explains why Federal Reserve officials remain so afraid of inflation, explains precautions you should take, and explains the wild swings in the stock market.

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 Money Mystery is the first sequel to Whatever Happened to Penny Candy? and provides essential background for getting the most from The Clipper Ship Strategy: For Success in Your Career, Business and Investments.

REVIEWS

"While this volume of the 'Uncle Eric' series is a bit shorter and more specialized, it is an important component to the economic success model that Mr. Maybury is teaching. Mr. Maybury's historically-supported predictions are bound to shake business owners and anyone with investments."  — Martha Robinson, Reviewer for HomeschoolChristian.com

"The Money Mystery by Richard J. Maybury is an important addition to his Uncle Eric series of books about economics, law, politics, and liberty. Mr. Maybury presents the complex subject of velocity in clear and concise terms, using fascinating examples from history, making this book, as well as others in the series, must reading for both young persons and adults. The entire series should be a required, integral component of the social studies curriculum in all public and private schools."  — William P. Snavely, Emeritus Professor of Economics, George Mason University
