In this extensively revised and expanded second edition of "Uncle Eric Talks About Personal, Career, and Financial Security", Uncle Eric introduces the concept of model. Models (or paradigms) are how people think; they are how we understand our world. Models help us recognize and use the information that is important and bypass that which is not. To achieve success in our careers, investments, and every other part of our lives, we need sound models. In this book, Mr. Maybury introduces the models he has found most useful (Economics and Higher Law). This is the first book in the Uncle Eric series and, while designed to stand alone, provides an excellent foundation for Maybury's other books. To improve the student's learning experience, also purchase the student study guide for "Uncle Eric Talks About Personal, Career, and Financial Security" titled "A Bluestocking Guide: Building a Personal Model for Success", which is also available from Amazon.Table of Contents for "Uncle Eric Talks About Personal, Career, and Financial SecurityUncle Eric's Model of How the World Works"Study Guide AvailbleAuthor's DisclosurePart One: How the Mind Works1.

SummaryAppendixBibliography and Suggested ReadingGlossaryAbout Richard J. MayburyIndexFor more on the Economic model, read "Whatever Happened to Penny Candy?" The clearest and most interesting explanation of economics around. Explains the Austrian economic model, the most free-market of all economic models, and the one that is most in agreement with the ethical principles on which America was founded.For more on the Legal model, read "Whatever Happened to Justice?" Explains the common law model. Underlying common law are two basic rules: 1) do all that you agreed to do and 2) do not encroach on other persons or their property. Maybury says, "In my opinion, you and your family and friends will avoid a lot of trouble, and find success of every kind easier to achieve, if you adopt these two models, Austrian economics and common law."
