I read the first edition of this book early in 1950, when I was nine-
teen. I thought then that it was by far the best book about investing
ever written. I still think it is.
To invest successfully over a lifetime does not require a strato-
spheric IQ, unusual business insights, or inside information.

sions and the ability to keep emotions from corroding that frame-...

General scanners have a broad list of attributes in mind and spend a minimal
amount of time matching resumes to their criteria. Usually, they start by doing
a quick scan, looking for the obvious scoop on the person: Did he go to a top
school? Has she worked for good companies? What functional knowledge does
he have? It’s best if this information is prominent and comes immediately to
the eye. If they like what they see, then they’ll read through the entire resume.
This approach is fairly typical of the way an investment banking team...
What is investment banking? Is it investing? Is it banking? Really, it is neither. Investment banking, or I-banking, as it is often called, is the term used to describe the business of raising capital for companies and advising them on financing and merger alternatives. Capital essentially means money. Companies need cash in order to grow and expand their businesses; investment banks sell securities to public investors in order to raise this cash. These securities can come in the form of stocks or bonds, which we will discuss in depth later....

The bull market of the late 1990s created significant wealth, yet subse-
Tquent bear market years diminished many investor portfolios. Natu-
rally, investors find the concept of shrinking assets to be unacceptable
and seek ways to generate greater wealth. Emulating the best practices
of the world’s most successful investors has led to increasing “retailiza-
tion” of hedge funds, funds that formerly were available only to the
world’s richest individuals.
For many years, the stock and futures markets have been consid-
ered separate and distinct entities. Stocks (securities) have been the
backbone of capitalism and are still regarded as such today. Stocks
are considered the “stuff” of which all “good investments” are fash-
ioned. Not only has stock and bond trading been considered neces-
sary for the survival of industry and business in a capitalist society,
but it has also been regarded as the single most viable form of in-
vesting for the general public.
Traditional Supply Chain Management (SCM) aims at movement of goods and services from one end of
this chain to the other through different stages so as to improve the efficiency, productivity and profitability
of the entire process. As SCM spans across the economic functions of the entire value chain of
a product or service, it is vital for a company to join in, form, or coordinate its business related supply
chains, forming various kinds of business relationships.
CHAPTER 1 Investment banking, or I-banking, as it is often called, is the term used to describe the business of raising capital for companies and advising them on financing and merger alternatives. Capital essentially means money. Companies need cash in order to grow and expand their businesses;
investment banks sell securities to public investors in order to raise this cash. These securities can come in the form of stocks or bonds, which we
will discuss in depth later.

Casting process is the most direct method of producing a product from the chosen material.
Though products in all the three major classes of materials, metals, ceramics and polymers
can be produced by this method, casting of metals is by far the most widely used process.
The basic steps in the casting process are preparation of the material in the liquid state,

We believe that the information in this booklet will be helpful during a company’s review of Vietnam as a site for a factory, to provide a service, or otherwise as an investment venue. We have emphasized material that would normally be on a site selection team’s check list.
While the information is only a summary, we believe that this summary provides a significant amount of information on which a company can rely to understand Vietnam’s legal context.
We hope that the material is useful.
This book examines the coherent international tax regime that is embodied both in
the tax treaty network and in domestic laws, and the way it forms a signiﬁcant part of
international law, both treaty-based and customary. The practical implication is that
countries are not free to adopt any international tax rules they please, but rather operate
in the context of the regime, which changes in the same ways international law changes
