Krugman & Verhagen on Economic Bubbles
The well-known Noble prize winning economist, Paul Krugman, seems to be gaining more and more attention as a New York Times columnist than he had as a regular economist. Maybe in these times of unbridled admiration for fame and celebrities, Krugman should consider joining a reality show, if he wants to influence the world outside the U.S. and possibly outside our universe. Anyway, his latest column, This Age of Bubbles, questions why we've experienced so many economic bubbles since the late 70s. After the housing bubble in the U.S. and Western-Europe from a few years ago, before that the dot-com bubble, then the Asian bubble of the 1990s, and the real estate bubble (in the U.S.) of the 1980s, it seems now the BRICs with Brazil, India, and other emerging markets are hitting the proverbial economic walls.

"What’s going on? It’s a variant on the same old story: investors loved these economies not wisely but too well, and have now turned on the objects of their former affection. A couple years back, Western investors — discouraged by low returns both in the United States and in the noncrisis nations of Europe — began pouring large sums into emerging markets. Now they’ve reversed course. As a result, India’s rupee and Brazil’s real are plunging, along with Indonesia’s rupiah, the South African rand, the Turkish lira, and more."

After referring to the Federal Reserves policy of lowering interest rates and financial deregulation in the U.S. and around the world, Krugman concludes:

August Classic of the Month: The Master Key System

Our August Classic of the Month is a highly popular turn of the (20th) century work on personal achievement and success, i.e., one of the original self-help books. The Master Key System, by Charles F. Haanel, is a work that  has inspired and motivated scores of "employees" to make their careers and lives a booming success.

The idea that the key to professional and personal fulfillment is in our hands is a very provocative idea, and self-made millionaire businessman Charles F. Haanel not only believed this, he lived it. Even better, he wrote the instruction manual for how to use the tools that we all have available, our minds and spirits, to open the door to happier, healthier, smarter, more successful selves. By outlining the laws and principles that dictate achievement and personal development, Haanel makes creative power, motivation, and action accessible. This book is part philosophy, part positive psychology, and part business doctrine, and is sure to continue inspiring individuals to be the best they can be for centuries to come.

American author and entrepreneur Charles F. Haanel (1866-1949) was member of the American Scientific League and the American Society of Psychical Research, and author of several books including Mental Chemistry and The New Psychology.

August Book of the Month: Everything You Want to Know about TM

Cosimo's Book of the Month for August is our extremely popular Everything You Want to Know about TM--Including How to Do It, by John White. Wildly popular in the 1970s and '80s, Transcendental Meditation (TM) continues to be one of the most accessible forms of Eastern spiritual practice in the West. But does it live up to its hype? In this objective exploration of TM, consciousness researcher John White looks at what's billed as "a simple, natural, and effortless mental technique, practiced twenty minutes a day" and takes on its critics as well as its cheerleaders.

The book has received popular acclaim as well as criticism for its controversial subject matter. Comments from readers include:

"I applaud John White for writing this book and I enjoyed reading it very much. His critical writings about spirituality and the science of TM were very insightful and thought-provoking."
"This little book is the best book on Transcendental Meditation I have ever read... Read this book and you will have a balanced view of TM."

 "This book is unique in that unlike most books telling readers how great TM is, White gives the pros and cons of TM from every point of view... To me, everyone who wants to learn TM should read this book carefully."
Everything You Want to Know About TM is available as a paperback book and an ebook from Kindle and Nook.

John White is an internationally-known author in the fields of consciousness research and higher human development. He has published 15 books and his writing has appeared in publications in the United States and abroad. He has published three books with Cosimo, including A Practical Guide to Death and Dying and his children's story, The Christmas Mice
