This a great book, which I highly recommend for anyone wanting to understand and take control of their financial future.

A word of warning - in order to get full benefit from the author's discussion on the financial crisis, the causes and underlying concepts, some financial knowledge is needed. Don't be intimidated, though. Even if you have to re-read some sections the time spent will be well worth it.

The author has taken pains to remove technical jargon and explains concepts clearly. Even if you

The book spends a lot of time describing with statistics and numbers how we got to where we are and how it is like different periods in the past. The investment guidance was approached assuming a higher level of financial knowledge than most of the other "pop investment" books you would pick up at the bookstore -- not college textbook level but leaning in that direction. Nothing earthshattering here, much like what you may have read in more conservative financial magazine articles recently. I li ...more

A very pleasant surprise. Simple but insightful analysis and intuition about where our economic future is headed. Recommend reading this and Koo's book on balance sheet recessions "The Holy Grail of Macroeconomics"

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

The book starts extremely well and makes insightful great points in early part of the book based on the knowledge of long history, clear analysis of cycles and use of logic. In the first few chapters, the book almost had the potential to be the book of the era - a bit like this time is different or black swan.



Yet, all is completely lost soon. The wasted part is the author's desire to tell investors what to invest in over the next few years, positioning it as just another investment advise book,

Recommends it for: Persons interested in our economy
Actually, I'm still reading this book. I got it from the library as an audiobook CD, and it became overdue so I returned it without finishing it. I'm thinking I may take it out again sometime, but it was a bit difficult to follow while driving in my car, so I'm not sure. I needed a break anyway. The person who narrates it reads at a measured pace, and even at that it was at times hard to track on. Still, I thought it had some important points to make and could make interesting reading for someon ...more

From the bookdaily.com excerpt, this looked very timely, and it certainly was.

Not only did Boechk lay out the crisis, but he also, very specifically made recommendations on how investors can survive and prosper in the new economy. This is an important read.

This isnt a brand new book and allows you some space to judge its predictions. They look very accurate so far. This was a bit technical book in nature. Introduced me to a few concepts I was not familiar with. Absolutely worth the read for retail and portfolio manager.
