Publisher's Summary

If the 20th century was the American century, then the 21st century belongs to China. Now the one and only Jim Rogers shows how any investor can get in on the ground floor of "the greatest economic boom since England's Industrial Revolution". In this indispensable new book, Rogers, one of the world's most successful investors, brings his unerring investment acumen to bear on this huge and unruly land now being opened to the world and exploding in potential.

Rogers didn't just wake up a Sinophile yesterday. He has been tracking the Chinese economy since he first went to China in 1984 in preparation for his round-the-world motorcycle trip and then again when he saw Shanghai's newly reopened stock exchange. In the decades that followed, especially in recent years, with the easing of Communist Party financial dictates, the facts speak for themselves:

  • The Chinese economy's growth rate has averaged 9 percent since the start of the 1980s
  • China's savings rate is over 35-percent (in America, it's two-percent)
  • Forty-percent of China's output goes to exports (so there is no crippling foreign debt)
  • Sixty billion dollars a year in direct foreign investment, combined with a trade surplus, has brought Beijing's foreign currency reserves to over $1 trillion
  • China's fixed assets, ports, bridges, and roads, double every two and a half years.

    In short, if projections hold, China will surpass the United States as the world's largest economy in as little as 20 years. But the time to act is now. In A Bull in China, you will learn what industries offer the newest and best opportunities, from power, energy, and agriculture to tourism, water, and infrastructure.

      "A Bull in China"

      It was probably one of my least favorite books that I have ever forced myself to read. I continued because I thought surely it was going to get better, but it didn't, not even to the end. It was full of statistics, way too many. I have read other of Jimmy Rogers books and this did not compare. There were way too many companies mentioned and no real insight as I thought there might be. We do need to be invested in China companies and China will be one of the largest economic powers and soon. That was really the only thing that I thought was portrayed in the book, and that was/is already a known fact. Actually a waste of time and not recommending the book. I am actually a fan of Jimmy Rogers but not of this book.

      "One of the worst books ..."

      I bought this book based on the good experience with his prior books. Unfortunately, this one turned-out to be a total thud - full of useless statistics which are most likely completely out of date. I found his section called Jim's Sino Files (at the end of each of the chapters) wherein he rattles off stock symbols, ticker numbers, exchanges where traded, 3-year revenue and income change etc. total nonsense and completely superficial. I'm an investment professional, and I can tell when someone is bullshitting. He is completely full of himself!

      "Some parts hard to follow"

      This audiobook has great info. However, there are some data that the author has to read that would be far better viewed and referenced in a book. This might be one where the book is better than the audio. I've still enjoyed it.
