Jukka Gronow’s book Deciphering Markets and Money solves the problem of the specific social conditions of an economic order based on money and the equal exchange of commodities. Gronow scrutinizes the relation of sociology to neoclassical economics and reflects on how sociology can contribute to the analyses of the major economic institutions. The question of the comparability and commensuration of economic objects runs through the chapters of the book. The author shows that due to the multidimensionality and principal quality uncertainty of products, markets would collapse without market devices that are either procedural, consisting of technical standards and measuring instruments, or aesthetic, relying on the judgements of taste, or both. In his book, Gronow demonstrates that in this respect, financial markets share the same problem as the markets of wines, movies, or PCs and mobile phones, and hence offer a highly actual case to study their social constitution in the process of coming into being.

As science and technology have pervaded modern life to an ever greater degree, social scientists have been led to find questions of the causes and consequences of 'expert' knowledge arising in places that would have been felt unlikely hitherto. Varcoe, McNeil and Yearley's book assembles nine exemplary studies by sociologists, each of which explores an aspect of the current scientific-technological 'revolution'. Some popular ideas are challenged. So, too, implicitly, are certain large-scale social scientific theories claiming to have discerned in science and technology an overall meaning.

A leader’s provocative look at 20th century financial markets Henry Kaufman, former vice Chairman of Salomon Brothers, was a key Wall Street figure in the 70s and 80s. His projections about interest rates, bond performance, unemployment, and government debt impacted monetary policy in more than one presidential administration, and prompted swings in the markets. You’ll find On Money and Markets—Dr. Kaufman’s look back at the financial and economic arenas he helped shape for half a century—both fascinating and valuable. His memoir gives you insight into such questions as why the Federal Reserve has gained so much power, and what it means for investors....and what patterns we can see in the credit crunches and other financial crises that have rocked Wall Street and world markets. The dozen or so questions he explores are of serious concern to today’s investors. And few other experts have Dr. Kaufman’s perspective and experience to answer them.

"Let's face it. Traders in the stocks, futures, options, or FOREX markets are dead meat if they aren't profiting from the astro-trading advantage!" That's what Tim Bost, editor of FinancialCyclesWeekly.com newsletter and author of Mercury, Money and the Markets, says it takes to survive in today's increasingly treacherous trading environment. "I've been working with planetary factors in market timing for over a quarter of a century," he says, "and I've never seen the odds stacked against individual traders more than they are now. To compete with market manipulation on a massive scale and the onslaught of high-frequency trading robots, you've got to have market timing tools that give you the agility and tactical superiority of a trading guerrilla. "That's what astro-trading is all about, and that's the focus in Mercury, Money and the Markets. It's aimed at short-term swing traders who want to level the playing field with high-precision, back-tested timing methods that most market players haven't even heard about!" In Mercury, Money and the Markets, Bost reveals the impact of Mercury cycles on price trends and reversals in equities, precious metals, and international markets on 5 continents. He also provides detailed analysis of 30 major blue-chip stocks, showing the individual idiosyncrasies in their responses to repeating Mercury cycles. With dozens of charts and examples throughout the book, he makes a compelling case for the importance of this often-overlooked component of financial astrology, elevating it to a new level as a powerful market timing tool that can make the difference between disaster and success in high-pressure trading. But Tim Bost doesn't stop there. He understands that effective trading involves more than just knowledge of the markets and correct analysis of trading opportunities-- it also requires sufficient self-awareness to be able to maintain emotional equanimity under fire. So he adds plenty of unique information here about how astro-traders can use Mercury to better understand their personal horoscopes, gaining higher degrees of trading confidence. It's a perspective unavailable from any other source. Because he's a pioneering astrological researcher as well as an active trader and trading coach, Tim Bost has uncovered significant planetary dynamics to take this advanced astro-trading sourcebook far beyond the common material found in most books on stock market astrology. It includes transneptunian factors, 90-degree dial analysis, nontraditional planetary angles and a great deal more. And it features tips on deciphering the trading code in W. D. Gann's strangest book, the role of Mercury in First-Trade horoscope analysis, and the money-making truth about the times when Mercury is retrograde. Mercury, Money and the Markets is also a book with lots of charm and intelligence. Bost is an excellent storyteller, so he makes the effects of Mercury come alive with examples from business, the markets, and personal experience. He also contributes his scholarly skill to this book, dipping back into the myths of antiquity to revive an ancient esoteric text that has surprising effectiveness in precisely timing trades today! This is a book to read and enjoy, and a valuable text filled with big payoffs for the active short-term trader. But it's also a book that you'll come back to again and again, since it features a unique cross-indexed Mercury Station Ephemeris that spans 201 years. In other words, while it's packed with energy and information you can use today for immediate profit, it has a long shelf life, too! If you're an astrologer looking for a way to make money, this may not be the book for you, since it's loaded with brass-tacks, down-to-earth insights about what it actually takes to profit from astro-trading. It will stretch your awareness well past the limits of what you thought astrology was all about. But if you're a trader who needs an extra edge, then run, don't w

At almost $2 trillion per day in trades, currency markets vitally link the world together. Yet few people understand how they work and why they are prone to instability and bouts of panic. This book takes the reader behind the scenes on a tour of the places, the machines, the circuitry and the people involved in moving world money. This journey begins as a traveler removes foreign currency from an ATM machine in Istanbul. The author guides us from the periphery of the market into its neural centers in financial hubs such as London and New York. Currency traders, market analysts, money managers and payments systems architects show their workplaces and reveal their day-to-day experiences in this unpredictable and rapidly evolving world. The experts interviewed may use unfamiliar terms, but the logical progression of the chapters and participants' stories told in workplace settings bring abstract concepts down to earth. After completing the tour, the reader will have a clear picture of the geographical and structural organization of global currency markets and the people who run them. This vision of a volatile, evolving structure will provide a useful framework for deciphering the complex causes of yet unforeseen financial events.
