For modern business professionals, the idea that what's in the stars might have some bearing on the very cut-and-dried, numbers-dominated corporate environment may seem pretty "out there." But time and time again, the science of astrology has been shown to provide uncanny insight into timing and trends.

    Both a revelation and a guide, Rich Is a Religion offers you a dramatically different view of how wealth is created and preserved by that enviable breed of people - famous and obscure - who truly have it. These individuals have a different way of seeing the world, in which their philosophy, principles, and belief system allows them to leverage opportunities that many others tend to miss.

It can, however, be improved and rethought so you can move away from patterns and habits that you can easily fall victim to.

    Splatter Capital shows how a subgenre of cinematic horror has developed a unique perspective on the cycles of capitalism. It argues that the messy brand of horror mobilized in gore or "splatter" films is extremely responsive to the internal contradictions that threaten the future sustainability of capitalist accumulation. And, while responding to the prospect of that end, splatter promotes an extant truth: capitalist accumulation is and always has been a nightmare of systematized bloodshed.
