Fintech resources to learn more about finances: Podcasts, books and Forums

Today we wanted to share with you some sources of information if you want to learn more about specific Fintech topics: payments, finances, economics, bitcoin, investment, etc. Not all of the sources we present are in English, some are in German or Spanish.

One of our favourites is Planet Money in the USA. It seems to be one of the most popular Economics podcast in the internet. It has been going on for many years already and diverse personalities from the finance and economics world have been guests in their episodes. More about them under:

Some journalists who appear in Planet Money, are also present in our next choice: The Financial Times podcasts series. They cover diverse topics every week: Economics, Politics, Currencies, IT, interviews, savings, etc. There is a paywall to enter the FT, but the podcast section is free to enter. Check it out under:

Our next choice is a book about the history of Bitcoin, which is pretty easy and straightforward to read. I actually read it in a week. The book is called: “Digital Gold: Bitcoin and the Inside Story of the Misfits and Millionaires Trying to Reinvent Money”. The book was shortlisted in 2015 by the FT as business book of the year.

Moving now to videos, and in Spanish, we recently discovered the “Podcast” series +Dividendos. They started last year, and so far have a very interesting series about investment, dividends, portfolios, cashflow, etc. If you understand the language, we recommend you to pay them a visit in youtube:

In German, English and Chinese, we have guanshe.me . They are a social network for women interested in topics related to Finances (Investment, Savings, Funds, ETFs, etc) and Entrepreneurship. They also have two blogs, in German, covering the same topics.

One of the best sources, and very popular, for all related to online payments it The Paypers. Based in the Netherlands, they publish diverse reports every year with the latest trends about payments around the world. More about them under:

A very interesting book about Spam, Online Payments, Fraud and Fraud Prevention, etc, is SPAM Nation. It is surprising to see that, among other things, even merchants selling pharma online needed to focus on customer care to prevent chargebacks.
