Books that are the ultimate revelation of Money
Inflation is at an all-time high, and prices of commodities are rising ferociously. In these hard times, there is an opportunity for us to learn more about how we spend our hard-earned money and how we should use it for our own good.
Since the pandemic, central banks all over the world have loosened the money supply until March of this year, when the Ukraine war started.
The prices skyrocketed, shortage of food and commodities like oil and natural gases due to sanctions was the reason for the increase in Inflation.
Now Central banks are taking measures to control inflation and thus restricting the money supply and decreasing demand. But that may work in short term, but in long term, we may be going towards recession. It's not a bad term, it's just that once in a decade world economy is going negative or backward.
Come on, you also know that we can't always have positive things going on, setbacks can and will happen, and these are the setbacks that make us strong and in this case world economy strong.

Investing your money
This is the best way to working your money for you. Let me tell you, power of money making itself.
Suppose you’ve invested $100,000 in 5 years in the dividend yielding stock and the yield of stock is 2% per year, then you will get $2,000 every year by just holding those stocks.
Now you may think that, by investing humongous $100,000, we only get $2,000 per year, that’s kinda less right. But that’s not the case, this $100,000 will also grow typically 5 to 15% of a year, according to market conditions.
We can also invest that dividend income again so that we can get more dividends in the future. Sometimes, we also get a bonus for holding the share or get split benefit of the share when it splits. We also get compounding benefit in long term investing.
There is trading too, which is fruitful but risky. But with right knowledge and risk management, you can also be the trader. It can become your side-income, if you get better in it.
These are typical advantages of holding the stocks, but there is much more to that like knowing the fundamentals of the company, it’s financial statements. This knowledge will definitely help you to invest in the right company at the right time.
Here are some of the books which tell you about investing and will help you to make your money work for you.
