Financial Euphoria

A Short History of Financial Euphoria

As 2021 wraps up, some of us feel like we are nearing the top of the cycle of financial euphoria. Our Director of Operations Mike recommends John Kenneth Galbraith’s “A Short History of Financial Euphoria” to help explain how this cycle may – or may not – look and feel like previous cycles. He says, “This short history of financial cycles over time is fascinating. We often get caught up in the present as if the past does not exist when in reality it is a preview to the future or the cycle ahead. This well-written book is a short read with great stories that will have you connecting the distant past to what you have seen in recent years. I hope you enjoy the read as much as I did.”

Our MFF Book Suggestions feature includes many of our favorite books on money management, personal and business development, leadership skills, and real estate investment. These are the books that have helped us to grow personally and professionally – and to help us master the game of money!

We add five books to our MFF Suggested Books list each month. Are there books that have helped you to grow your personal or professional confidence? Share your book suggestions with us by emailing us at!

A Journey to Personal Financial Independence
At Morgan Franklin Fellowship (MFF), we support the concept of financial freedom – by teaching participants how to save by paying themselves first, invest for their future and grow their net worth.

Learning how money works and how to talk about money with others are the first steps towards recognizing an individual’s lifelong financial goals. Our online courses and on-demand learning events are designed to help individuals learn the concepts, rules and vocabulary of money, finance and investing.

Becoming an MFF Fellow  
Our Standards of Financial Literacy program is engaging, full of interesting information, and easy to navigate. Adapted from the National Standards for Financial Literacy developed by the Council for Economic Education (CEE), this robust curriculum features six short lessons on such important topics as earning income, understanding the value of saving and using credit.

When completed, this program lays the foundation for becoming an MFF Fellow. Becoming an MFF Fellow is the ticket to access additional MFF programs and opportunities for mentoring, networking, internships and real-world opportunities. These are the opportunities which allow MFF Fellows to continue their journey towards personal financial independence.
