What a beginner needs to know to succeed and avoid costly mistakes when investing in rental property.
Pining for the "good old days" of Wall Street?
(NOTE: This is a new edition of the classic work, not a scanned reproduction of an old library book.)
When the New York Stock Exchange's primary purpose was to raise the capital the United States needed to finance the infrastructure of a young and growing country?
When conservative investors bought stocks to buy and hold for the long haul?
When brokers had the best interests of their clients at heart?
When the stock exchange listed only high quality stocks for sale?
When corporations did not deceive creditors by using the same property as the basis for multiple issues of bonds?
When Wall Street investment bank focused on providing good service, not in coming up with new financial products -- that is, inventing ever more new and risky ways to separate ordinary investors from their money?
When a man and a company's word was good, so you didn't have to study the fine print of every security before investing?
When a stock's current market price was fairly representative of its true value?
When Treasury bonds paid enough interest to support retirees?
Then DON'T read this book!
You'll be horribly disillusioned.
The author was a New York broker who wrote to warn ordinary people of the many dangerous ways to invest.
Much of what he wrote reminds us of modern Wall Street, without the complications made possible by computers.
It was the Gilded Age, according to Mark Twain . . .
The "robber barons" were creating industrial fortunes
Financiers got wealthy manipulating stocks on Wall Street
The young United States needed roads, farms, railroads and water works, and investors unknowingly were paying five to six times their actual costs
The western frontier was still being tamed, but every small town could have a speculator running the risk of "stock-gambling" and the resultant bankruptcy and even suicide -- like day trading without your own PC.
So check out book that blows the lid the insider secrets of Wall Street past . . .
Then substitute "biotech or Internet" for "railroad" and the latest craze for "water works" and you'll have a guide to warn you not to fall for the ways investors can lose their shirts in the 21st century . . .

The first attempt to address comparative property law in a common integrative framework, this study discusses German, Italian, French, American, and British property law as mere variations based upon a few fundamental themes through which these nations developed legal systems to provide responses to common economic problems and to set legal foundations for working markets. Basic Principles of Property LaW was produced to offer a common framework for the discussion of the law of property within countries in transition, thus it has its basis, not on just one legal system, but on the institutional commonalties that make western property law a working market institution. It offers a major challenge to conventional thinking that in property law the differences between common law and civil law are so important that common core research is impossible. Mattei hopes to guide the reader to think comparatively about property by shedding many preconceived formalistic abstractions. The substance of property law, he argues, is much more common throughout the Western legal tradition than legal scholars would have us believe. Through a set format and accessible writing, this book looks at national legal traditions as responses to common economic problems. It sets the foundations for further much needed integrative comparative legal research in the domain of property law.
