In his acclaimed book American Theocracy, Kevin Phillips warned of the perilous interaction of debt, financial recklessness, and the spiking cost (and growing scarcity) of oil- warnings that are proving to be frighteningly accurate. Now, in his most significant and timely book yet, Phillips takes the full measure of this crisis. They are a part of what he calls "bad money"- not just the depreciated dollar, but also the dangerous attitudes and the flawed products of wayward mega-finance. His devastating conclusion: In its hubris, the financial sector has hijacked the American economy and put our very global future at risk-and it may be too late to stop it.
“Humorous and forthright...[Gaby] Dunn makes facing money issues seem not only palatable but possibly even fun....Dunn’s book delivers.” —Publishers Weekly The beloved writer-comedian expands on her popular podcast with an engaging and empowering financial literacy book for Millennials and Gen Z. In the first episode of her “Bad With Money” podcast, Gaby Dunn asked patrons at a coffee shop two questions: First, what’s your favorite sex position? Everyone was game to answer, even the barista. Then, she asked how much money was in their bank accounts. People were aghast. “That’s a very personal question,” they insisted. And therein lies the problem. Dunn argues that our inability to speak honestly about money is our #1 barrier to understanding it, leading us to feel alone, ashamed and anxious, which in turns makes us feel even more overwhelmed by it. In Bad With Money, she reveals the legitimate, systemic reasons behind our feeling of helplessness when it comes to personal finance, demystifying the many signposts on the road to getting our financial sh*t together, like how to choose an insurance plan or buy a car, sign up for a credit card or take out student loans. She speaks directly to her audience, offering advice on how to make that #freelancelyfe work for you, navigate money while you date, and budget without becoming a Nobel-winning economist overnight. Even a topic as notoriously dry as money becomes hilarious and engaging in the hands of Dunn, who weaves her own stories with the perspectives of various comedians, artists, students, and more, arguing that—even without selling our bodies to science or suffering the indignity of snobby thrift shop buyers—we can all start taking control of our financial futures.

Spur Award-Winning Author ED GORMAN The money is phony but the murders are real… A COUNTERFEITING RING WITH MORE THAN INK ON ITS HANDS... Secret Service Agent Dev Mallory didn't get to be the best playing by the rules. He's trained to kill, but only as a last resort—because murder has a way of coming back at you...

But when unexpected ties and betrayals from the past catch up with Dev, the cost of solving this counterfeiting case could include his own life...

Over the last decade, Indian banks in general and the government-owned public sector ones in particular have gradually got themselves into a big mess. Their bad loans, or loans which haven't been repaid for ninety days or more, crossed Rs 10 lakh crore as of 31 March 2018. To put it in perspective, this figure is approximately seven times the value of farm loan waivers given by all state governments in India put together. And this became the bad money of the Indian financial system. Why were the corporates unable to return these loans? Was it because they had no intention of doing so? Who were the biggest defaulters of them all? Are Vijay Mallya and Nirav Modi just the tip of the iceberg? How much money has the government spent trying to rescue these banks? How are the private sector banks gradually taking over Indian banking? Is your money in public sector banks safe? How are you paying for this in different ways? And what are the solutions to deal with this? In Bad Money, Vivek Kaul answers these and many more questions, peeling layer after layer of the NPA (non-performing assets) problem. He goes back to the history of Indian banking, providing a long, deep and hard look at the overall Indian economy. The result is a gripping financial thriller that is a must for understanding a crisis that threatens our banking system and economy.

Money Management Turn Bad Credit Into Good Credit: It seems that everywhere you turn, someone wants to know your credit score. It doesn’t matter if this is you or someone from your bank. Many landlords will even run a potential renter’s credit as this will usually give them insight as to whether the person will pay their rent. The landlords will also have guidelines to use in order to tell you if you are approved or not approved based on your credit score. While some may allow you to have a cosigner if you are not approved, they will also want to run your co-signer’s credit report. This is often frustrating to many people, especially when you are trying to repair your credit. It can make you feel that you are never given a break or that your identity is now your bad credit. It doesn’t have to be this way. In fact, the more you learn about the details of what bad credit is and how there are federal laws to help you overcome bad credit, the faster you will find yourself in financial freedom. Your credit score is vital to your life. It is something that helps you to enjoy life as you have added access to financial services and various investments. You must understand how your score can directly influence what you can purchase so that you can enjoy your life. The problems you have with your credit score can be very dramatic and you might not be fully aware of what affects your credit score or how valuable it is to you. Those people who pay off their debts and lines of credit with on-time payments will be more likely to have better credit ratings. There are many things relating to your credit score that should be explored that go well beyond just your payment history. Financial Budgeting: Everyone has an opportunity to grow their money and get out of debt, but you must start to make this a reality. Be warned, though, when your income starts to grow, it is easy to fall into temptation and start spending more than you are earning again. Refrain and continue saving and investing your money. Every small step counts. Every coin kept and invested counts. If you use the profit you make, you will be unable to grow your wealth. Instead, allow your investment to grow by using the profits as part of the next years principal. With time, you will have a venture that can not only buy you whatever you want but one that will continue to grow over the years. Taking advice from experts in the field you wish to invest is critical to your investment. Would you go to a farmer when you are sick, or would you seek out a doctor? The same way, take your investment knowledge from those who understand the market dynamics and can offer you advice to help grow your investment. Manage your credit cards with responsibility, or they will sink you into a hole. The easiest way to get into debt is to spend more than you earn. You need to keep your expenses lower than your income at all times. Watch your credit card spending because that’s how we often find ourselves overspending. To get out of debt is to pay. The longer it takes you to pay, the higher the interest rate you will be required to pay. Either consolidate your debt or tackle one debt at a time. You might want to reduce your expenses, so you have more money to spread around. Always start by saving 10% of your income. A safety net is essential for your peace of mind. Budgeting does not have to be complicated. The more you simplify it, the better. As long as you track your expenses and stick to your budget, it will work for you. Ensure that you don’t view it as a task but as a necessary tool to help you stay ahead, get a real financial picture, and manage your money correctly.
