Recommendation

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.
