Since 2008 financial "almost" meltdown, I have been more puzzled by the financial market and human behavior when it comes to money. Now in 2018, housing and stock prices at an all-time high while most people are not making more income than they did pre-2008. I also wondered what contributed to the run-up in US financial market vs. other countries. I'm 100 pages into the book and it has already offered me so many perspectives to view what is going on today.
Many looks at the Wall Street as an evil entity, but I believe the financial market can be utilized to create financial freedom for individuals. But first, we must make an effort to understand the game as Warren Buffett said - "Risk comes from not knowing what you're doing."
This is a must-read to understand the world we live in today. I'm grateful that Ray and his team had put a very complex world of finance into simple languages I can understand and offer a comprehensive review of how we got here today.
