Books For Traders by Technical Analysis, Inc.
Capitalist Dogs: A Financial Fable (301 pages, $24.95
hardcover, 2000, ISBN 1571972854), by Jack Katz, MS, JD, published by Pentland Press, Inc. This story is set in a dream, but it is about getting a real financial and investing education — the kind one can’t get from companies hawking investment vehicles or “dummy”-type wealth books. The dream is an entertaining, educational adventure that involves encounters with dozens of informative animal characters like a legal weasel, a cash cow, an inflation hawk, a corporate mole, and a financial chicken. H. Ross Parrot, Warren Basset, Billy Goats, and Dr. Green Spin participate as well. The dreamer begins with barely any understanding of the financial and investing world, but wakes up aware that he probably now knows
more than most people, including many Wall Street–trained investment advisers. The author died before the book was published, but his years as a broker, teacher, and writer give the reader a doggone good look at life in the financial world.
