Learn about the World Bank with iMinds Money´s insightful fast knowledge series. The World Bank is an international financial institution of the UN whose purpose is the alleviation of poverty through providing leveraged loans and technical assistance to the world’s poorest countries. The World Bank was created at the Bretton Woods Conference in 1944 with the primary role of financing the post-war reconstruction of European and Asian countries devastated in World War II. Today, the World Bank consists of the International Bank of Reconstruction and Development (IBRD) and the International Development Association (IDA) which form part of the five institutions which make up the World Bank Group. The World Bank Group plays a leading coordination role in international economic affairs due to it being a multilateral institution with extensive experience and partnerships with countless UN agencies, aid agencies, NGOs and national, regional and local governments. The IBRD, the original institution of the World Bank, is a triple A rated financial institution which provides loans, guarantees and analytical and advisory services to middle-income and creditworthy low-income countries. These countries represent 70% of the world’s poor. The Bank uses its triple A credit rating to source funds from the world’s financial markets and provides these at a small mark-up to qualifying countries for approved projects. While these medium-term, usually 10 year, loans are substantially lower than those in the private sector they are often attached with strict conditions and monitoring programs. 1. Language: English.

Talking about money with your spouse or fiancé can be as scary as walking blindfolded on a tightrope strung above a blazing fire. It can also be a beautiful, intimate pursuit that helps you feel more connected than ever. How your partner responds to your financial concerns - with support, or lack of concern - affects you more profoundly than how any other person on the planet does. When they dismiss your concerns, it stings. But when they listen, care, and move toward you with understanding, empathy and humility, well, that´s how babies get made. It´s hard to be open, honest, and vulnerable about such a personal topic when your emotions are at stake. Standing in front of each other in nothing but your financial underwear can get awkward. However, the rewards of engaging in discussions on money far outweigh the risks of avoiding them. Other books on finances obsess over complicated math and reverse hedge funds. But the most important asset has been overlooked: how to have encouraging, worthwhile conversations on money. One Bed, One Bank Account delivers hope to married and engaged couples by offering an enjoyable framework for improving financial communication. Whether you´re just starting out, in the middle of a financial crisis, or doing well, this book delivers a surprising and encouraging truth: having better conversations on money will strengthen your marriage. 1.

How to Trade Forex and Currency Markets: A Beginner´s Guide to Professional Forex Trading is a practical and easy-to-follow workbook for people interested in forex (foreign exchange) trading. Geared for newcomers to currency trading, the audiobook takes its listeners through the fundamentals of the market and provides easily understood explanations of basic principles and terminology. One particularly interesting feature that distinguishes Zack Zarr´s book from other publications on forex trading is that it provides its readers with a novel way of gaining insight into market developments. As Zarr points out early in the book, forex trading is the playground of two basic types of traders: individuals like Zarr (and presumably his readers), and what he terms the ´´big players.´´ It´s a dramatically uneven playing field, pitting relatively inexperienced amateurs trading alone with their own limited funds against corporate professionals trading with the advice and copious budgets of their employers. The ability of these solitary traders to influence the directions of markets is negligible, while the big players have the money and the volume to place their collective hands on the steering wheel. So, Zarr concluded early in his 10-year trading career, if you can´t beat them, join them - not by applying for a job with your corporate competitors, but by getting inside their heads and figuring out how they think. That way, you can not only understand their moves, you can also anticipate them. Unlike some of his counterparts, Zack Zarr is no snake oil salesman. He offers no wild promises of amazing profits for just following a few simple directions. Zarr does, however, establish a warm and empathetic relationship with his listeners as he provides straightforward step-by-step explanations with hundreds of examples based on his own real-life forex trading experiences. 1.
