What People Are Saying

From the Publisher
Praise for Clean Money

"A breezy, easy read that delivers a useful introduction to the emerging concept of making money in clean and green stocks. I recommend it!"
–Dr. Rob Wilder, CEO and Manager, WilderHill Clean Energy Index (ECO)

"The urgency of reducing our dependence on fossil fuels and polluting technologies is giving rise to fantastic investment opportunities. Rubino’s Clean Money is a cleverly-written and insightful roadmap to green investing, the new financial frontier, and provides the essentials of each new technology with an eye on making a killing in the years ahead."
–Shayne McGuire, Director of Global Research, Teacher Retirement System of Texas

"Clean Money captures the ongoing shift to a green economy. External environmental costs are going to be internalized, producing the most significant change in the global economy since the industrial revolution and transforming the way everyone does business. This book answers many of the questions we get every time we sit down with new investors."
–Matthew Patsky, Portfolio Manager, Winslow Green Mutual Funds

"Clean Money provides a comprehensive overview of what promises to be one of the best global investment themes of the coming decade. Whether you are an individual investor or a professional advisor, this book deserves a prominent place in your investment library."
–Peter Schiff, President, Euro Pacific Capital and author of Crash Proof: How to Profit from the Coming Economic Collapse

"An entertaining, crystal clear guide for anyone who is thinking about investing in the environmental technology sector. John Rubino mixes fascinating case studies with astute, well researched analysis on the pros and cons of each of the sectors currently contributing to the runaway train that is the new energy revolution. A great read."
–Louise O'Halloran, Executive Director, Responsible Investment Association Australasia

"John Rubino's Clean Money finds the signal of truth in the noise of hype in the green investing market, zeros in on the most relevant and promising companies and technologies, and navigates the treacherous macro-economic waters that may cause investors to jump into the alternative energy market either too early or too late. Essential reading for investors seeking to profit from the coming boom in clean energy." 
–Eric Janszen, founder and President of iTulip, and author of the forthcoming The New New Deal
