Most higher education finance literature assumes that students cannot pledge their future earnings to finance their education in a free society. Investing in Human Capital, first published in 2004, challenges that assumption and explores human capital contracts as an alternative mechanism for financing higher education. Investing in Human Capital tracks the roots of the idea behind human capital contracts, discusses the beneficial consequences they would have on students and on higher education markets, and describes how they can develop in light of the innovations that have taken place in financial markets during the last decades. The book also explores the challenges - ethical and financial - that such instruments face and offers implementation alternatives that can bring about their existence in the context of a national higher education financing programme.
This book was written to provide the basic knowledge and tools necessary for the average person to open an account with a brokerage firm, whether in person or online, with the intent purpose to invest in the stock market. This book will provide information specific to understanding the difference between dividend paying stocks and non-dividend paying stocks. This book is also intentionally written to stay under 50 pages. It is my experience that many readers are very busy and do not always have the time to read a 300-400 page average sized guide book. My intention is to provide a good base of knowledge and also provide additional knowledge resources that are free online.

I have since taught people how to trade and invest wisely and dispel the many myths surrounding the Stock Market.
