Salt Lake City, UT—Mark Lazar, author of Pathway to Prosperity: Your Guide to Money and Economics, just picked up the 2021 International Impact Book Award.
Such an award fits in nicely with Lazar’s overall vision because he wants to positively “Impact” people from all backgrounds and economic situations. The IMBA website characterizes the award this way: “Our program has honored outstanding authors and their voices in non-fiction, fiction, education, poetry, business writing, essays, biography, children’s literature and more. We applaud all of you for your excellent work and dedication. Books are reviewed by our judges and experts based on a scoring system that evaluates the quality of the writing and production of the book (editing, design, and other details).”
A Certified Financial Planner, Lazar fully loaded the book with vital information about the art and science of creating wealth while emphasizing a key factor: “Making money is one thing, creating wealth quite another.” The first two-thirds of the book goes through the primary aspects of economic life with the final third, the most fascinating, focusing on what Lazar calls ‘The Big Picture.’ What he means by the latter are the major historical and societal levers effecting the U.S. and world economies. These include the history of money and trade, central banks (U.S. Federal Reserve or Bank of England), stock and commodity markets, government fiscal and monetary policy, inflation, deflation, bonds, credit, market cycles and more.
Having grown up in straightened circumstances, Lazar used the stress of childhood financial hardship to create the drive and know-how to create financial independence. He achieved his goals and thus created the type of freedom which ushers in the ability to choose options rather than make choices. A hard worker from his early teens, Mark Lazar never lets those memories get too far away and wrote Pathway to Prosperity to share the common sense principles, values, and strategies that led to his success.
