Ancient Rome - How it Affects You Today

Ancient Rome - How it Affects You Today

Biblical Economics

Biblical Economics

by RC Sproul

We are obsessed with money, yet understand little of the workings of economics. Worst yet is the fact that what we think we know is just plain wrong. Politicians and special interest groups benefit from this ignorance while people slip deeper into debt and financial slavery. Biblical Economics tells you exactly what, how and why you need to know about its topic, no more and no less. With a passing interest in the subject, you may know a few more things about economics than R.C. chooses to discuss in the book. But most of those things are not things that most of us need to know in order to live a biblically sound life. Only a few are vital, and R.C. has done us the immense favour of isolating them, explaining them in clear and simple terms, and showing how they are pertinent and in fact critical to an understanding of how Christians must live in a world that is adamant about denying the role of God in providing our daily bread. You'll find that Biblical Economics is an invaluable aid for developing your own understanding of economic principles. Read it, then give it your child to read and then talk with him about it.

Clipper Ship Strategy

Clipper Ship Strategy

by Rick Maybury

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." 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. This book is the second sequel to Whatever Happened to Penny Candy? and should be read after The Money Mystery. Can be used for courses in Economics, Business, Finance, Government and History.

Common Sense Business for Kids

Common Sense Business for Kids

by Kathryn Ann Daniels

What does it take to be successful in business? Anthony Maybury used to think that in order to be successful in business one must know how to put complex theories into practice. He thought that success required knowledge of advanced mathematics, inventory management equations, and whiz-bang marketing techniques. But, he made some interesting discoveries. He came to realize that the greatest contributor to his business success was found in life experiences, not textbooks. Mr. Maybury said his business strategy was just "plain old common sense." But, through years observing others in the business world, he realized that his common sense business strategy was not so common after all. Through a series of interviews, author Kathryn Daniels collected dozens of Anthony Maybury's anecdotes and common sense strategies about what it takes to be successful in business.
