Opis: Smart Money - Andrew Palmer

Seven years after the financial crisis of 2008, financiers remain villains in the public mind. Most Americans believe that their irresponsible actions and complex financial products wrecked the economy and destroyed people's savings, and that bankers never adequately paid for their crimes. But as Economist journalist Andrew Palmer argues in Smart Money, this much maligned industry is not only capable of doing great good for society, but offers the most powerful means we have for solving some of our most intractable social problems. From Babylon to the present, the history of finance has always been one of powerful innovation. Now a new generation of financial entrepreneurs is working to revive this tradition of useful innovation, and Palmer shows why we need their ideas today more than ever. Traveling to the centers of finance across the world, Palmer introduces us to peer-to-peer lenders who are financing entrepreneurs the big banks won't bet on, creating opportunities where none existed. He explores the world of social-impact bonds, which fund programs for the impoverished and homeless, simultaneously easing the burden on national governments and producing better results. And he explores the idea of human-capital contracts, whereby investors fund the educations of cash-strapped young people in return for a percentage of their future earnings. In this far-ranging tour of the extraordinarily creative financial ideas of today and of the future, Smart Money offers an inspiring look at the new era of financial innovation that promises to benefit us all. New York Times Book Review "Fascinating... Palmer is a muscular, efficient writer; he relates in-person interviews and statistical evidence with ease and humor. [His] vignettes show how innovation can, and should, involve more than bankers getting rich, playing games and dodging rules." Wall Street Journal "A scintillating brief for financial invention... a cheerful and lucid Cook's tour." Library Journal "This book will satisfy the general reader and investor who wants to see the other side of the coin as it relates to financial innovation." Publishers Weekly "[An] eloquent manifesto... This intelligent, balanced study of current innovations in finance does much to exorcise its recent demonization." Robert Shiller, author of Finance and the Good Society "Smart Money is an entrancing story about what is new and exciting--but almost invisible for most of us--in twenty-first century finance. A real inspiration for idealistic entrepreneurs, and for members of the finance and insurance profession who have felt humiliated by the financial crisis." Edward Glaeser, author of Triumph of the City: How Our Greatest Invention Makes Us Richer, Smarter, Greener, Healthier, and Happier "This engaging and informative book provides a much needed rebuttal to the post-2007 hostility toward all forms of financial innovation. Andrew Palmer takes us on a tour of today's financial innovations, from social impact bonds to peer-to-peer lending, that illustrates the upside of creative finance. This book is crucial (and fun) reading for anyone who wants to understand both sides of the argument about financial regulation." Andrew Haldane, Chief Economist, Bank of England "Since the crisis, it has become far easier to bury finance than to praise it. Andrew Palmer has taken the path less followed. Smart Money is both optimistic and compelling as a vision for finance of the future." Dr. Richard Sandor, chairman and CEO of Environmental Financial Products "Finance is like a hammer. You can use it to hit someone in the head or to build a house. Fortunately, Andrew Palmer shows us the untold story of financial innovation as a tool for 'building houses.' A very timely and well-written account of how current and future market applications can have a positive social impact in areas such as the environment, health, and education. A must-read for policymakers who need to understand the role of financial innovation as an engine of growth."PART I Lessons Badly Learned One. Handmaid to History Two.
