Financial Independence in the 21st Century  by Dwayne Burnell, MBS and Suzanne Burnell, MSc  2012 192 pgs
   "In this book, Suzanne and I want to get you thinking about how to manage your money as you move forward into the 21st century...We're not going to create financial strategies for ourselves that are flexible, responsive to change and work in both a strong and weak economy, by doing what we've always done.  The key to effective change is to seek new knowledge and be open to new ideas.  Common and routine financial advice is anchored in the past.  Much financial planning advice is a strategy of looking in the mirror and talking about "past performance" of the stock market or the mutual fund within your 401(k) as a predictor of future growth.  Does this really make sense when, like it or not, what we're facing as we look forward has not occurred before in history?"

The Pirates of Manhattan   by Barry James Dyke   2007   263 pgs
   "Many financial products and concepts sold to the American consumer simply do not work over an extended period.  Popular strategies in today's financial planning such as dollar-cost averaging into mutual funds, maximizing your 401(k) programs, and buying term life insurance and investing the difference, which directly affects all of our financial lives, simply do not work over the long haul.  Yet these strategies and the products associated with them are promoted incessantly.  They are not promoted because they work over the long haul for consumers, but because they are extremely profitable to the financial institutions that manufacture and market these products."

Live Your Life Insurance   by Kim D. H. Butler   2008   39 pgs
   "The CLUE Method:  C=Control - Start flowing money to yourself in an account you control instead of away from yourself in accounts you don't control.  L=Liquidity - Build wealth that cannot be taken away from you by the stock market or the real estate market rollercoaster rides.  U=Use - Save money for later and purchase discretionary items now.  E=Equity - Create an account where you are benefiting from the ability to leverage, in a way that is better than cash, because paying cash is losing interest in an investment."

Farming Without the Bank   by Mary Jo Irmen     2014     97 pgs
   “In a few short decades agriculture has progressed from horses and plows to top notch equipment with GPS systems.  This progress is not going to stop, and farmers can’t afford for it to stop.  Farmers are feeding more people today than ever before because of the advancements in technology of equipment and seed production.  Efficiency in production is addressed daily now.  It is time to address efficiency of farm financing.  What we are not seeing is advancement in the way these farming operations are financed.  Farmers continue financing their operations through banks, just as they did 100 years ago.”

Money for Life   by Jeffrey Reeves, MA with Dr. Agon Fly   2008  175 pgs
   "The Money for Life Model, which harkens back to the financial principles upon which America was founded and incorporates 21st century thinking about money, teaches you to Earn/Save, then Borrow from Savings and Repay yourself.  This is not as daunting a task as it might seem at first glance. In fact, it lets you use your money, but not lose your money...Many Americans today successfully employ these practices.  You can too."
