A manifesto for people who have been scalped by or are suspicious of Wall Street, and for those who are bewildered by investment industry hype and media babble, Manarin on Money demystifies how money works and explodes the mythology and common wisdom that robs many people of their financial peace of mind. Founder and portfolio manager of the LifeTime Achievement Fund, Manarin uses the story of his family's survival during World War II and escape from the post-war economic chaos to illustrate how governments, including the United States, destroy private wealth by fostering inflation. More importantly, he shows how he has helped thousands protect themselves from inflation, and why the most successful investors are those who do the opposite of the crowd: buy when everyone else is selling, and sell when everyone else is buying. It is the story of his immigrant rags-to-riches journey; a tutorial with stories about common misconceptions about how wealth is built and maintained; a warning about safe investments; and a guide for the liberation of the individual investor from an investment industry that puts its interests ahead of the public's.
