We all have enormous potential! There is no limit to what each and every one of us can accomplish. We in the United States have already proven it! For with less than 5 percent of the world’s population, the United States produces 26.7 percent of the world’s gross domestic product. To what can we attribute this enormous phenomenon? Yale Hirsch believes that America is great because of its unique position as a capitalist nation that over time has benefitted from the influx of multitudes of gifted people from multiple countries. As the founder of the Hirsch Organization, creator of the Stock Trader's Almanac, and a lifelong student of the markets, Yale Hirsch has always offered a wealth of intelligent information and strived to help make a difference in the financial lives of his readers. In the new book THE CAPITALIST SPIRIT (Wiley; December 2009),Hirsch offers an inspirational collection of timeless wisdom that touches on many important topics.
Filled with the thought-provoking insights, philosophies, and quotes of many well-known and respected individuals—from Alan Alda, Richard Holbrooke, and Ayn Rand to Robert F. Kennedy, Jr., Newsweek editor Fareed Zakaria, and New York Times columnist and Pulitzer Prize–winning author Thomas Friedman, as well as Hirsch's own ideas on what it takes to make a difference in our fast-changing world, this book offers invaluable advice on money, power, potential, leadership, individuality, and the forces that drive our success, the markets, and in turn, our lives.
