The cover says it best: “how you can get all the financial information
the experts have for smart, successful investing.” This is another in
the author’s series about “how the world works.” He had previously
written How to Sell to the Government and Easy Money (your guide to
government giveaways). Here he describes how the system works within the
financial marketplace: how to find data and how to use it. For example,
he shows how to decipher economic news and trends, and how to get
information from accounting firms, brokers, and stock exchanges. He goes
on to describe how to find industry and company data, as well as
information about stocks, bonds, mutual funds, and precious metals. Then
he describes how to utilize the government agencies involved in
regulating all this activity (getting information from them about
companies for example) and how to utilize libraries that contain
government publications and company reports. Scattered throughout are
references to books, databases, and magazines, as well as telephone
numbers. A treasure-trove of economic information.
