In times when many focus on "Haves vs. Have-nots", this book argues that anybody can become wealthy after learning how to manage four critical (and non financial!) resources: creativity, time, knowledge, and opportunities. Simply put, wealth is a consequence of consistent and wise use of these four resources, each of which can be wasted, spent, or invested. Becoming a wealth maker does not require an esoteric philosophy that will magically grow your stash of cash. Rather, it’s all in the way you play the cards of life that you already hold in your hand.
An exploration into the true nature of money and currencies and the constant need for credit in our modern society. It provides an important first step in establishing true financial freedom.
What does the Bible really say about money? In this first volume, Iustin analyzes, each in its context, the verses that contain at least one reference to gold or silver, limiting the study to the five Books of Moses. This book is not a plea for a return to carrying around coin pouches filled with gold and silver pieces, nor does it advocate doing away with modern technologies for transferring value. This is rather about understanding the principles that not only would have allowed mankind to develop and maintain prosperity throughout history, but would also enable us to do the same today and in the future, regardless of the technology we use for transferring value. If you, like the author, are feeling overwhelmed by the number of contradictory theories related to money, reading this series of books will surely help. For those who are certain that God always has a valid answer, this study is a perfect fit, but it is also valid for someone who is neither a Christian or Jewish.
This manual looks beyond the technical aspects that makes these matters hard to understand without advanced financial education, and it also explores the psychological aspects that directly and indirectly affect price increases or decreases.
