Apart from being literate it is also important to be "financially literate" because 2/3rd of our lives is spent on earning, spending, saving and investing, for ourselves and for others. Given the uncertain times that we live in depending on bank fixed deposits, gold and/or real estate to build our wealth or reach our financial goals would be a futile attempt. It is time that we start looking beyond the obvious and start educating ourselves with the all important knowledge of managing our finances by understanding the opportunities. If we ignore or shy away from acquiring such knowledge there would be no one to blame except ourselves. There are several myths, misconceptions, prejudices and fear surrounding various asset classes that includes stocks, mutual funds and insurance which this book, stories weaved through conversational mode, endeavours to clear the haze by offering clarity over financial instruments answering several critical questions and can confidently say the content would enhance the knowledge on various financial products and services that is presented through lots of examples explained using simple language. The content can also be treated as a "self-help" book on simplifying the investment knowledge. The final outcome after reading the book would be the feeling of being an "informed investor."
As the countries of Eastern Europe undergo the dramatic transformation to a market economy, waves of reforms, food shortages, massive unemployment and political upheavals continue to complicate an already bewildering situation. It has been a slow, difficult struggle, but the newly independent countries have made progress toward establishing capital markets and the democratic institutions to protect them.
Cutting through the confusion that has surrounded privatization and capitalist enterprises in the East, Margie Lindsay here presents, in a succinct and straight-forward one- country-per-chapter approach, the essential facts, policies and problems surrounding this historic transition. Each chapter summarizes developments to date, examining banking, finance, money and capital markets, insurance, market supervision, emerging stock markets, secondary markets and other relevant topics specific to each country. Countries covered are: Albania; Bulgaria; Czechoslovakia; Hungary; Poland; Romania; and Slovenia. Summaries or complete texts of major legislation dictating privatization policy are also included.
The book is rounded out with rich appendixes that give useful contact names and addresses of financial institutions in the East. Developing Capital Markets In Eastern Europe serves as a valuable reference tool and guide for economists, businessmen, potential investors and academics alike through the maze of theories, legislation, and contradictions in the political and economic policy debates of the Eastern countries.
