Nine economic and social upheavals may rock the financial markets and threaten your personal wealthbut they will also provide opportunities for prepared investors. Are you ready for them?
If you're one of the 80 million American investors in the stock market, you probably follow the daily value of your portfolio. But how often do you consider trends beyond the daily or weekly ups and downs of the Dow or NASDAQ? Are you prepared for the shocks and tremors that will shake financial markets everywhere over the coming years?
In Market Shock leading global economist Todd G. Buchholz alerts readers to nine trends that threaten to turn America's economy on its head. From the high-flying world of high-tech and Japan's financial resurgence to America's aging population and Europe's gradual unification, Market Shock analyzes major national and global trends, and predicts how each will impact society, the financial markets, and individual investors. For the unprepared, these tremors may bring about financial ruin. But for the savvy investor, these widespread changes offer tremendous opportunities to make money.
Among the trends Buchholz identifies are:
The new rules for unstable high-tech and bioscience markets
The impact of increasing cultural diversity on consumer and labor markets
The ramifications of global warming on the economy
The aging of America and how it will bankrupt Social Security
The resurgence of an angry Japan
However, as Buchholz is quick to point out, these trends do not necessarily mean doom, gloom, and a huge stock market crash. Investors who anticipate these trends using this book can not only avoid the coming crises, but can also make money by moving assets to sectors of the economy that stand to benefit from the coming cultural and economic shifts.
No boring tome on finance or economics, though, Market Shock is filled with lively "news flash" scenarios, plentiful examples, and helpful advice for many kinds of readers. In clear, articulate, and witty prose, Buchholz draws from his extensive knowledge to discuss issues that will affect investors and consumers over the next ten, twenty, and perhaps even thirty years. This is a highly insightful, impeccably reasoned, and eminently readable bookand one that couldn't be more timely.
Rezension: Get ready, investors: the graying of America, the resurgence of Japan, global warming, and six other major trends will jar the world's stock markets in the next century. "Because the changing world continually buffets the markets, we cannot blindly throw money into stocks, into mutual funds, or into a bank account," warns leading economist Todd G. Buchholz in Market Shock. Instead, investors must be prepared to capitalize on opportunities as they unfold, says Buchholz, also the author of the bestseller New Ideas from Dead Economists. For instance, with the aging of baby boomers, savvy investors should begin moving into health-care and pharmaceutical stocks. And with the prospect of global warming, investors should consider insurance companies that are avoiding coverage of homes in low-lying coastal regions. The other six economic and social trends: a boom in minority populations; the biotechnology and information revolutions; China's growing importance in the global economy; a possible jump in crime; the potential failure of European unity; and the rising fees and slumping performance of mutual funds.
Buchholz begins each chapter with a futuristic gloom-and-doom scenario and a fictional news flash. Without naming particular companies, he then describes the sorts of investments likely to flourish during those events. Market Shock can help people sidestep some investing minefields and possibly profit from some major trends that could transform the world's economies. --Dan Ring
