Cashless Society Explained Audiobook

Cashless Society Explained

Author: Introbooks Team Narrator: Tracy Tupman Release Date: June 2020

A cashless society defines an economic environment in which financial transactions are not performed through money by way of bank currencies or coins, but rather by exchanging digital data (typically an electronic expression of money) between the transacting parties. Cashless societies have had come into being since the time of the evolution of human civilization, based on barter and other trading practices, and cashless transfers have now become viable in modern times, leveraging digital currencies, including bitcoin. However, one tends to explore and focus on the concept of a cashless society in the context of moving towards a society where cash is substituted by its digital counterpart, i.e., legal tender money, which is captured, and only transmitted in digital electronic format. Such a theory has been discussed at length, notably as the world is undergoing a substantial and phenomenal use of digital ways of capturing, controlling, and transacting in trade, investment, and day to day life in several parts all across the globe and transactions that would have traditionally been conducted with cash are now often executed electronically or digitally.

Decentralized Finance Explained Audiobook

Decentralized Finance Explained

Author: Introbooks Team Narrator: Tracy Tupman Release Date: June 2020

Blockchain-built dApps, protocols, smart contracts, and digital assets are the key elements of decentralized finance. The Ethereum framework is the primary choice for the DeFi application considering the adaptability and the level of development, but that doesn't imply it's the only blockchain forum.  DeFi is a development in the cryptocurrency industry, aimed at recreating conventional banking services without centralized technologies. Bitcoin itself is a prototypical illustration of DeFi; the majority of other cryptocurrencies depend on central organizers or issuers. DeFi is implemented via dApps, typically installed on either a blockchain such as Ethereum or a tangle such as IOTA. Decentralization suggests that there is no single point o f failure since similar records are kept across a peer-to-peer network throughout a plethora of computers. Since it's unregulated, it is also available to all regardless of their income or where they stay. And, while a payment processing firm or a bank can close an unseemly customer's account, blockchains are immune to surveillance.

Socialism Explained Audiobook

Socialism Explained

Author: Introbooks Team Narrator: Tracy Tupman Release Date: June 2020

Socialism is termed as an economic political and social philosophy covering an assortment of social and economic frameworks characterized by social ownership of the means of production and the self-control of enterprises by workers. It incorporates the political movements and theories related to such systems. A social obligation may be mainstream, collective, collaborative, or equitable. Socialism and communism are described fundamentally as economic principles that promote the public in place of private ownership, primarily in a system of factors of production, distribution, and exchange of products and services that aim at making money. Both elements are poised for resolving the rising problems they consider to be created by a series of misguided industrial policies.  The complex evolution of socialism reflects the broad variety of definitions and interpretations of socialism across the political landscape and the absence of a common consensus of what socialism is or how it appears to look in the practical realm.  Even so, within countries around the globe, socialist party outfits and concepts continue to shape policy matters. And the prevalence of socialism contributes to the universal appeal of seeking a more egalitarian social implementation.

Asset Bubbles Explained Audiobook

Asset Bubbles Explained

Author: Introbooks Team Narrator: Tracy Tupman Release Date: June 2020

An element of asset bubble develops when the value of an asset, like real estate, commodities, stocks, or bonds, increases at a brisk rate without intrinsic factors, such as equivalent ever-increasing demand, to validate the spike in prices.  An asset bubble is triggered when assets such as gold, stocks, or housing rapidly experience a dramatic price hike over a short period that is not sustained by the value of the commodity. The characteristic of a bubble is unreasonable optimism: a tendency when everyone is buying up a specific asset. When investors rush towards a category of assets, like real estate, it results in a rise in both price and demand. Investors carry on bidding up an asset’s price well beyond sustainable and real value in the course of a bubble. Inevitably, when prices are in a collision, the bubble 'bursts, and subsequently, demand disintegrates, and the result is often significantly lowered domestic spending and dismal business and the economy's possible future downturn. Knowing the historical trends and causes of asset bubbles will prevent one from responding and falling prey to a future debacle. Illogical exuberance is a crucial indicator of a continuing asset bubble.

Investment Risks Explained Audiobook

Investment Risks Explained

Author: Introbooks Team Narrator: Tracy Tupman Release Date: June 2020

On any specific investment, the possibility of losses occurring in terms of the expected return can be characterized as investment risk. In simple terms, it is a calculation of the quantum of uncertainty while venturing for the coveted returns in line with the investor's overall expectations. It's to recognize the magnitude of unforeseen outcomes in the making. In the course of estimating an investment's prospect, the risk appears to play a crucial part.  A majority of investors find reduced risk as gainful when deciding upon an investment. The less the investment risk, more will be the amount of investment. The criterion, however, is higher the scope, the stronger the return prospects. Many categories of finance-related threats constitute a financial risk, especially money transfers that involve default risk of company loans. It is also assumed that it includes only downside risk, which implies the opportunities for capital loss and ambiguity as to its nature. A portfolio's deviation, i.e., standard deviation, is treated as a risk description in the realm of modern portfolio theory.

Randomness Explained Audiobook

Randomness Explained

Author: Introbooks Team Narrator: Tracy Tupman Release Date: May 2020

Randomness is a concept used (and less formally) in mathematics to imply that there is no way to accurately predict an event (to know what will happen before it takes place) or to sense a trend. Anything that is randomly selected for no conscious purpose can be assumed to be simply by chance factor. An illustration of an occurrence random event is a financial windfall, a lottery win. A computer can generate lists of seemingly random numbers. It is difficult for humans to do the same, since the brain functions in patterns.  If someone is asked to keep repeating heads or tails at random, a considerate human observer or a reasonably programmed computer may eventually tell which one the person is likely to say next because the computer recognizes the patterns. The user can click on Random Page on a website such as English Wikipedia to get a random article. The odds of being on anyone's webpage are the same as on every other webpage.

Social Intelligence Audiobook

Social Intelligence

Author: Introbooks Team Narrator: Tracy Tupman Release Date: April 2020

Individuals carrying social intelligence can sense the feeling of other individuals, innately know how to respond in critical social situations, and appear largely assertive, even in a mass congregation. In 1920, American psychologist Edward Thorndike first established the theory of social intelligence and conveyed the veracity to the world at large. What he felt the intrinsic value of social intelligence was the capacity to consider and control men and women, boys and girls, to behave wisely in human relationships.  No one has become born socially smart. Rather, it entails a skill set that a person learns over time. It's not as simple as mastering the idea of social intelligence. If it were, there would never have been another intriguing conversation at a gathering. Striving for a powerful social intelligence, however, can lead to a better lifestyle or at least a smoother time to make some new companions.

Subconscious Mind Audiobook

Subconscious Mind

Author: Introbooks Team Narrator: Tracy Tupman Release Date: April 2020

The term subconscious reflects an etymological root of the French subconscious as introduced by the renowned psychologist Pierre Janet (1859–1947), who claimed that a strong perception lay beneath the layers of the conscious mind's critical-thought mechanisms that he labeled the subconscious mind. The adjective is described in the strict psychological perception as functioning or appearing outside the territory of consciousness. Edwin A. Locke and Amy L. Kristof reiterate that there is a restriction to what can be kept in conscious contextual memory. It needs an alternate warehouse of one's knowledge and past experience, which they classify as the subconscious. In 1893, Sigmund Freud interpreted the word subconscious to characterize thoughts and desires which are not available to one 's conscious frame of mind. However, he discarded the term in preference to the unconscious. Peter Gay suggests that the application of the word subconscious where the unconscious is intended to be a uniform and revealing error is construed as another school of thought that has also been duly recognized.
