              The Art of Passing the Buck offers a simple, comprehensive explanation of how Wills and Trusts work. It reveals wealth retention, management and empowerment techniques you can use to build a family dynasty. Inheritance may often degenerate into legal battles, and/or dark whisperi...ngs among relatives. Who was cared for or neglected comes to the fore when reading the Will or setting up the Trust. Sometimes, siblings battle among themselves over who gets what, while parents become distraught making the myriad decisions related to their own passing. We explain how there can be a smooth transition when both Grantors and Beneficiaries have vital information. A must read for both givers and receivers of wealth, this book also covers: the history of Trusts, Trust types, Trustees and the law, privacy, who should not have a Trust, parenting and perpetual wealth, and heirs: the favored and the flawed. Emphasis throughout is on what works in the real world, based on decades of experience.

              In spite of its critical importance to social stability, the Ontario social welfare system has avoided scrutiny to a remarkable degree. In this book, the authors use their extensive experience as landlords to blow the cover off Ontario's social welfare system. They show how the s...ystem is operated as what can best be described as a special welfare cult whose insiders jealously guard its secrets. This has significant implications for housing, homelessness, crime, and the taxpayer-funded cost of the system. More importantly, it threatens to undermine the comfortable middle-class lifestyle of the majority of Ontarians. Cloak of Secrecy uses a unique blend of real-life experiences and researched information to explain and illustrate the deep-seated problems in the welfare system and ancillary systems. The real-life stories provide fascinating insights into the life of low-income Ontarians, something that most people are never exposed to or would prefer not to think about. The book is a must-read for those who work in the social welfare and legal systems as well as anyone who is curious about how their taxes are being spent.
