This book will help you make better investment decisions in commodity markets. Find out which pundits and forecasters really know what they are talking about and track them. Understand the factors you can use to hold the ‘experts’ to account.

Peter Sainsbury tells the story of how dairy farmers in New Zealand, petrochemical companies in the US and miners in Canada have been affected by overly optimistic views on future commodity prices. This isn’t just a story of investors losing their money, but loss of communities and livelihoods and even whole economies usurped by just the expectation of a commodity boom.

Central to this is the power of the forecast in driving decision-making. All to often investors and executives outsource vital thinking to others they perceive have some edge in predicting prices, without really stopping and asking why, how and what if?

Do you rely on commodity price forecasts for your business or investments? Are you finding it ever more difficult to find out who is the voice of reason? Does relying on no one but yourself to research markets scare you?

In Crude Forecasts: Predictions, Pundits and Profits in the Commodity Casino, economist Peter Sainsbury shows how you can take back control. In these pages you’ll discover:

* Why incentives tell you everything about financial market pundits
* What warning signs to watch out for
* How to be a more sophisticated consumer of financial media
* What you can do to avoid your business, industry or country becoming a commodity “white elephant”.
* Why Mifid 2 will increase demand for transparency and evidence based forecasting.

Demand forecasts if you have to, but please demand better forecasts.

Power Of Habit: Building One Good Habit At A Time For Ultimate Success [ habit stacking, habit building] (positive habits, personal transformation, change your habit)

by Jim Berry

Power of Habit

Building One Good Habit at a Time for Ultimate Success

This book, “Power of Habit: Building One Good Habit at a Time for Ultimate Success,” is about taking your life to the next level of success – but not through motivation or inspiration. We have none of those hyped transformations and overnight success stories in this book because they only trick you into doing too much too soon. This book will only teach you the things you really need to succeed – building good habits. The book explains why habits are powerful, how habits become habits, and how to replace the bad habits with the good habits creating a new “you” who is primed for success. You don’t need those overhyped inspirational overnight success stories to motivate you to reach greater heights. What you need is to develop the same habits those successful people have to propel you to success.

The kind of life we lead today is essentially the product of our habits – our daily routines – our daily processes. And no one has ever described this natural phenomenon more accurately than the great Greek philosopher Aristotle who said – “We are what we repeatedly do. Excellence then is not an act but a habit.” What we repeatedly do – the things we read and think about and the routine tasks we perform every single day – is what shaped our beliefs and transformed us into the kind of person we are today. It is what molded the type of personality we portray. In other words, our whole life is nothing more than the sum of our habits. How successful or unsuccessful we are is the result of our habits, just as being physically fit or unfit is.

Almost everyone I’ve met wants to make changes in their lives. They want to be better persons their families can lean on. They are appalled by the overnight success of America’s youngest billionaires such as Evan Spiegel, Dustin Moskovitz, and Mark Zuckerberg. They idolize the likes of Bill Gates and Carlos Slim Helu and want to emulate them. They would like to attain the level of success these people have achieved. The only problem is they focus too much on the stories and on how these people raked in their fortunes – not on their habits and routines which really made them the icons of success they are today.

Use the knowledge you’ve gained from this book to change bad habits that have long been holding you back from attaining success. Follow the tips contained in this book to harness the power of habits to create a new â??you’ and propel yourself to greater heights. Of course, if you have friends who need more positive habits in their lives, you shouldn’t think twice about telling them about this book. Better yet, talk to them about your life-changing discoveries and convince them to join you in your quest for encompassing success.

Here is a preview of what you will learn…
