Nearly 40 years later, people's lives are still being enriched by the Financial Integrity Program he helped create. The program enables you to: Get out of debt Spend less Develop savings Learn to base your transactions (the getting, spending, investing and giving of your resources) on your own personal principles Achieve a degree of financial independence that allows you to spend your time doing what is fulfilling for you Rick Van Ness, author of Why Bother With Bonds recently expanded Steps 8 and 9 to reflect the time-proven wisdom that many call the common sense investing principles. These are also recognized as the Bogleheads Investment Philosophy, an endearing term honoring John C. Bogle, lifelong champion for ordinary investors.What's different about the 9-Step Financial Integrity Program?Many books and "step programs" on managing your money are available today. What most of these books have in common is that they assume your financial life functions separately from the rest of your life. The Financial Integrity Program is different. It is a 'whole systems' approach to your life. And it will take you back to basics-the basics of making your spending (and hopefully your saving and investing) of money into a clear mirror of your life values and purpose.The purpose of the Financial Integrity Program is not to sell you anything-a product, a guru, a lifestyle. You don't need any of those to achieve your goals. But you don't need to go it alone, either. By using this proven, comprehensive program of nine steps based on classic financial principles, you can get where you want to go faster than making them up yourself. And it's all free.Is this program what you need? Ask yourself these questions: Are you comfortable with the amount of money you have? Is it enough? Are you spending as much time with family and friends as you would like? Do you come home from your job feeling fulfilled? Do you have time to participate in things you believe are worthwhile? If you were laid off from your job, would you see it as a tragedy or an opportunity? Do you have enough savings to support you through six months of normal living expenses? When you think about your finances, do you feel peaceful and at ease? If you were to die in the next few years, would you be comfortable with your legacy or contribution to your family, your community, the world? Are all the aspects of your life - your job, your possessions, your relationships, your values - integrated? If you answered, 'no' to even one of these, then this 9-Step program can help.
Description : Bestselling author and UK television star Alvin Hall demystifies the principles of personal money management, helping readers control their finances so they can move from confusion—about credit, debt, investments, and retirement—to clarity. Americans are finding themselves in tough situations in the midst of today’s volatile financial climate and more than ever need good guidance and discipline. In Your Money or Your Life, financial guru Alvin Hall shows how taking charge of money reduces stress in all aspects of life— work, day-to-day living, and relationships—and it’s never too late to start monitoring this crucial area of life and working towards achieving long-term financial goals. One of the keys to achieving financial success is to first learn how to distinguish between “wants” and “needs.” Hall instructs and empowers readers to create a budget that allots for life necessities and material desires. But he also warns readers to get to the emotional root of what causes them to “want” certain things and reconsider their desires carefully. Most importantly, Hall teaches readers how to recognize and manage their personal spending styles, how to find painless ways to save money, how to understand the real cost of credit card debt, how to pick the best mortgage package for them, how to plan for retirement, and how to evaluate insurance offers. With Your Money or Your Life, Alvin Hall provides sound financial advice that enables readers to make confident decisions and attain financial security.

Description : Why, despite the existence of raft of potential international investment outlets, is a major share of global wealth and savings mpelled toward a United States (US) Wall Street centered casino ? Why has an increasingly gapping chasm crystallized between ever bloating global financial activities and the �real” world economy of production and trade? How is it that wealthy governments�injecting trillions of dollars into stumbling financial sectors across the globe is failing to create new decent jobs? The present volume clearly answers these questions and more as it connects the dots linking the 2008 meltdown and over a decade of dress rehearsals for it to a rigged global financial game that cemented US international dominance under conditions where the US simultaneously attained the status of world�s principal debtor economy. It traces out the complicity of Japan in the game beholden as it was to US anti-communist largesse for its meteoric post-war rise. It examines how China, the former communist Cold War nemesis, paradoxically became the next major underwriter of US debt and exporter of global deflation as is sets low wage rates for the world.

Description : Through Canadian and international perspectives, Bending the Cost Curve in Health Care explores the management of growing health costs in an extraordinarily complex arena. The book moves beyond previous debates, agreeing that while efficiencies and better value for money may yet be found, more fundamental reforms to the management and delivery of health services are essential prerequisites to bending the cost curve in the long run. While there is considerable controversy over direction and details of change, there also remains the challenge of getting agreement on the values or principles that would guide the reshaping of the policies, the structures, and the regulatory environment of health care in Canada. Leading experts from around the world representing a range of disciplines and professional backgrounds come together to organize and define the problems faced by policy-makers. Case studies from the United States, the United Kingdom, Australia, the Nordic countries, and industrialized Asian countries such as Taiwan offer useful reform experiences for provincial governments in Canada. Finally, common Canadian cost factors, such as pharmaceuticals and technology, and paying the health workforce, are explored. This book is the first volume in The Johnson-Shoyama Series on Public Policy, published by the University of Toronto Press in association with the Johnson-Shoyama Graduate School of Public Policy, an interdisciplinary centre for research, teaching, and executive training with campuses at the Universities of Regina and Saskatchewan.
