Overview

A guide to understanding and thriving in today's new economic environment

Now that the housing and credit bubbles have burst, toppling banks and sending shockwaves through the stock market and around the world, it may seem like the worst has passed. But the full impact of the crises we have recently faced will create far more problems, and unless you're prepared, you'll struggle to regain your financial footing.

In The Great Reflation, author Tony Boeckh helps you understand how these crises, and the policies passed to jumpstart the economy, will play out for investments and business, and provides you with the tools to excel in today's rapidly evolving financial landscape. He reveals how similar episodes compare with the current crises and what this could mean for your financial future.

  • Arms you with practical insights that will allow you to evaluate different investment options
  • Explores the implications of the end of the private debt cycle, the possible rise of a new age of thrift, and the new government debt crisis
  • Reveals how you can profit from once-in-a-lifetime opportunities as well as proper portfolio allocation strategies

While things may never return to "normal," you can still make choices that will allow you to prosper. This book will show you how.

    Erudite guide to personal investing in uncertain times

    You don't expect to find snippets of Goethe's poetry or Taoist philosophy in a book on personal investing. Financial editor Anthony Boeckh brings his 40 years of market experience, as well as insights from the wisdom of the ages, to bear as he explains how to prepare for potential unprecedented economic shocks over the next several years. The billions the U.S. government is spending to prop up the economy will have consequences - intended or not - that will force investors to manage their portfolios more actively. Boeckh offers a historical perspective on current events. He identifies market and political signals to heed, discusses what they might portend and suggests ways to position your money appropriately. getAbstract recommends his commonsense approach to investors who are trying to make sense of what the economic upheaval means for their fiscal futures. Seek the harmony of the Tao as you flow with the financial changes to come.
