Overview

From the million-copy-selling author of A Random Walk Down Wall Street, the perfect guide to investing in the next economic giant.
It is no secret that China has the world’s fastest-growing economy. The trick is how average investors can tap into the opportunities it affords. Burton G. Malkiel, longtime friend and adviser to ordinary investors through his great book A Random Walk Down Wall Street, now gives them China. In From Wall Street to the Great Wall he explains why and how the Chinese economy is poised for significant gains in the near future. It highlights not only Chinese firms and industries but also multinationals in the United States and elsewhere that are likely to benefit from China’s explosive growth. Following this tour and analysis of investment opportunities in China, including the stock, commodities, real estate, and even art and collectibles markets, the book reviews these options and sets forth a grand strategy, including sample portfolios, for investing in China.

    A reviewer

    In my opinion, this is an excellent guide for any individual investor who feels he 'she' may want to ¿profit from China¿s booming economy.¿ Even if the reader decides not to invest in China, the account of how far China has come in a period of approximately three decades is an interesting read. The book is divided into three sections: The Setting, which provides a historical background on China and its people The Investments, which explains how Chinese securities are structured and traded and The Strategies, which provides advice as to how investors might go about investing in China¿s economic success. The final chapter, The Optimal Investment Strategy, presents the authors advice as to how an individual investor might pursue an investment plan and at the same time minimize risk. The authors throughout the book emphasis risk and in the final chapter clearly state, ¿We warn you in advance that it is not an exciting strategy that will make you a millionaire shortly after reading it ¿ but it is a strategy that sharply curtails your risk.¿ Another reviewer of this book has made comparisons of this book with Jim Rogers¿ A Bull In China. In my opinion, From Wall Street to the Great Wall is a far superior read. Burton Malkiel has the academic credentials and decades of experience in teaching investing to students. He has also been on the board of directors for many years at the Vanguard Group, a company dedicated to the best interests of individual investors. The average investor would be foolish to invest directly in Chinese companies as Mr. Rogers suggests. That would be like walking through a mine field. I suggest sticking with the advice of the professor.
