A Bull in China: Investing Profitably in the World's Greatest Marketby Jim Rogers
- LendMe LendMe™ Learn More
Profiting from China without getting burned is currently an obsession with the international investment community. The estimated size of the Chinese economy has just been revised upwards, making it the 4th largest in the world behind the US, Japan and Germany, and ahead of the UK but the idea that investing in China is a sure-fire, get-rich-quick investment story is dangerously misleading.
* The author of the bestselling Investment Biker, Adventure Capitalist, and Hot Commodities, is providing a book that provides a window into what will soon be the most vital, most lucrative market of our time: China.
* While the Chinese economy has had an annual average growth of 9.4 percent since 1978, and despite the ongoing speculation about China's future, its stock market is now emerging from a six-year low.
* As the Chinese economy continues to lumber toward a free market system - and as the Chinese government inevitably unpegs its currency and opens its stock market to more foreign investment, Rogers foresees an abundance of opportunities for investors.
* In this book, he shows readers not only how to take advantage of
China's coming dominance - what, where, how, and when to buy - but how China will impact individual companies, markets, and economies around the world.
* "Nobody with blue eyes has ever made money investing in China," the old saying goes.
Jim Rogers aims to disprove this adage.

–The New York Sun
“[Jim Rogers] presents the case that this truly is going to be China’s century and that anyone who doesn’t take advantage may be taking a big risk.”
–The Boston Globe
“Rogers races through the promising and profitable business opportunities China has to offer–in a manner and prose far superior to any other current financial guru-writer’s.”

What People are Saying About This
Meet the Author
Born on October 19, 1942, Jim Rogers had his first job at age five, picking up bottles at baseball games. After growing up in Demopolis, Alabama, he won a scholarship to Yale. Upon graduation, he attended Balliol College at Oxford where he earned his first Guinness record as coxswain of the crew. After a stint in the army, he began work on Wall Street. He co-founded the Quantum Fund, a global investment partnership. During the 1970s, the portfolio gained 4,200 percent, while the S&P rose less than 47 percent. Rogers then decided to retire—at age thirty-seven—but he did not remain idle.
Continuing to manage his own portfolio, Rogers served as a professor of finance at the Columbia University Graduate School of Business and as moderator of The Dreyfus Roundtable on WCBS and The Profit Motive on FNN. At the same time, he laid the groundwork for his lifelong dream, an around-the-world motorcycle trip: more than 100,000 miles across six continents, his second Guinness record. That journey became the subject of Rogers’s first book, Investment Biker (1994).
Rogers’s Millennium Adventure 1999–2001, his third Guinness record, took him and his wife through 116 countries, through half of the world’s 30 civil wars, and over 152,000 miles. His second book, Adventure Capitalist, chronicled that incredible journey.
Now a contributor to Fox News and other news and print outlets, he has recently moved to Asia with his wife and daughter.
