Money BluePrint: The Secrets To Creating Instant Wealth
What is your relationship with money? How do you view it? I asked you these two questions because the way that you feel, think and act towards money formulates your “Money Blueprint” and determines whether or not you will be financially successful. Your “Money Blueprint” is ingrained in your subconscious mind and it has been immensely influenced and formulated by your interactions with others and their views of money like your parents, relatives, and the various institutions you have encountered in your lifetime like school, the church etc. In his book entitled Money Blueprint: The Secrets To Creating Instant Wealth author and serial entrepreneur Omar Johnson examines how exactly your “Money Blueprint” has been formulated and how it has possibly hindered you from achieving financial success. Maybe you are the type that has an aversion to money and believe that “money is the root of all evil”, or maybe you are the type that feel that rich people are “greedy”, or maybe you are the type who makes money only to sabotage yourself by giving it all away or by going broke like most people do when they win the million dollar or the professional athlete or entertainer who has squander it all. No matter what your case maybe in this book you will find the solutions that will enable you to create a new, healthy and ideal Money Blueprint.

The ABCs of the Economic Crisis: What Working People Need to Know
The economic crisis has created a host of problems for working people: collapsing wages, lost jobs, ruined pensions, and the anxiety that comes with not knowing what tomorrow willbring. Compounding all this is a lack of reliable information that speaks to the realities of workers.
Commentators and pundits seem more confused than anyone, and economists—the so-called “experts”—still cling to bankrupt ideologies that failed to predict the crisis and offer nothing to explain it.
In this short, clear, and concise book, Fred Magdoff and Michael D. Yates explain the nature of the economic crisis. Contrary to conventional wisdom, the authors demonstrate that this crisis is not some aberration from a normally benign capitalism but rather the normal and even expected outcome of a thoroughly irrational and destructive system. No amount of tinkering with capitalism, whether it be discredited neoliberalism or the return of Keynesianism and a “new” New Deal, can overcome the core contradiction of the system: the daily exploitation and degradation of the majority of the world’s people by a tiny minority of business owners.
While the current economic maelstrom has laid bare the web of greed, corruption, and propaganda that are central to capitalism, only an aroused public, demanding the right to health care, decent employment, a secure old age, and a clean and healthy environment, can lead the United States and the world out of the worst crisis since the Great Depression and toward a system of production and distribution conducive to human happiness. This book is aimed primarily at working people, students, and activists, who want not just to understand the world but to change it.
