Read the following excerpt from The Econosphere: What Makes the Economy Really Work, How to Protect It, and Maximize Your Opportunity for Financial Prosperity, Preface.

 

When the economy is not giving us the messages that we want to hear, we tend to think of it as broken, unfair, and maybe even a little malicious. Someone ought to step in and fix it or adjust it, just like the government has tried to do now and again. But if the economy is actually a selfsustaining social ecosystem, the same way our physical ecosystem is, perhaps it is better-suited to take care of itself, and our tinkering with it might disrupt instead of help it.

In The Econosphere, you finally will understand the laws that govern our financial world–the everyday world of work and play; planning, saving, and investing; and the economic considerations for everything that comprises our daily lives. This is a world that is a most fundamental aspect of everything that we are, and we need to understand it clearly to make intelligent choices. Here, I show you that we are living, breathing, and working within the self-regulating, holistic Econosphere whether we know it or not.

You will understand why others’ wealth neither hurts nor benefits you. You will understand what fairness is in an economic sense. And you will see clearly how to make the most of your time and labor. To continue reading, purchase and download now.
