Robert J. Froehlich has written an informative and highly readable guide to understanding the emerging global economy. Never dry, dull or dense, his book focuses on the factors that combine to create both major and minor global economic trends. If you understand these trends, he maintains, you can make wise investment choices now and in the future. At the end of the book, Froehlich includes a glossary of terms, though - unlike many investment books - you don’t find yourself lost in a sea of insider jargon while reading. He writes delightfully, easily shows you how global trends connect and conversationally explains what this means to you professionally and personally. getabstract recommends this book to all readers, since no matter your area of expertise or interest, if you live on this planet your economic well-being is affected by globalization.
In this summary, you will learn
- How demographic factors influence global economics and markets;
- Why the most successful investments will be those made in long-term trends; and
- Why the intelligent investor ignores fear and greed.
