The Age of Deleveraging: Investment Strategies for a Decade of Slow Growth and Deflation, Updated Edition | [A. Gary Shilling]

The Age of Deleveraging: Investment Strategies for a Decade of Slow Growth and Deflation, Updated Edition

While many investors fear a rapid rise in inflation, author Gary Shilling, an award-winning economic forecaster, argues that the global economy is going through a long period of deleveraging and weak growth, which makes deflation far more likely and a far greater threat to investors than inflation. Shilling explains with clear language and compelling logic why the world economy will struggle for several more years and what investors can do to protect and grow their wealth in the difficult times ahead.

Publisher's Summary

Top economist Gary Shilling shows you how to prosper in the slow-growing and deflationary times that lie ahead.

While many investors fear a rapid rise in inflation, author Gary Shilling, an award-winning economic forecaster, argues that the global economy is going through a long period of deleveraging and weak growth, which makes deflation far more likely and a far greater threat to investors than inflation. Shilling explains with clear language and compelling logic why the world economy will struggle for several more years and what investors can do to protect and grow their wealth in the difficult times ahead. The investment strategies that worked for last 25 years will not work in the next 10 years. Shilling advises readers to avoid broad exposure to stocks, real estate, and commodities and to focus on high-quality bonds, high-dividend stocks, and consumer staple and food stocks.

  • Written by one of today's best forecasters of economic trends - twice voted by Institutional Investor as Wall Street's top economist
  • Clearly explains what to invest in, what to avoid, and how to cope with a deflationary, slow-growth economy
  • Demonstrates how Shilling has been consistently right about major economic trends since he began forecasting in the early 1980s

Filled with in-depth insights and practical advice, this timely guide lays out a convincing case for why investors need to be prepared for a long period of weak growth and deflation - not inflation - and what you can do to prosper in the difficult times ahead.

    Is there anything you would change about this book?

    It did seem to repeat itself. I at times was a bit unsure if I accidently skipped backwards or the author was stressing a point or simply filling space.


    Would you be willing to try another book from A. Gary Shilling? Why or why not?

    Probably not. He mostly offered his ideas on coming deflation. The actual investing portion was small. It was interesting, but for a book that touted strategies, I think it was a bit thin on how to either look for or exploit investment opportunities. It's probably nearly one of a kind on Audible, so if you are interested in deflation, it is a must.


    How could the performance have been better?

    I prefer faster narration, but the Audible app let me set the speed to 1.5x.


    Did The Age of Deleveraging inspire you to do anything?

    No. The most interesting bit was his exchange with Milton Friedman, but the author comes off rather flat in the exchange.


    Any additional comments?

    This book mostly emphasized long term Bonds which increase in value as interest rates fall because their earlier issue was at higher rates.
