The world is always changing, and you have two options: rail against it - and blame government, big business, and foreign countries for something you can't control - or recognize the evolving world and get to work making the most of the opportunities change brings. While you can't stop change, you can profit from it, and MoneyShift: How to Prosper from What You Can't Control is your one-stop guide to finding out how.
Investing successfully means figuring out where new opportunities are emerging, so that you can put your money where the growth is, not where it was. The best investment opportunities have shifted - geographically, technologically, and demographically - and MoneyShift explains exactly where they've gone. Insightful, candid, and easy to listen to, this audiobook points out the potential risks, as well as the benefits, of the options now available to you, from putting money into emerging markets to investing in your own human capital. And while it looks to the future, the audiobook doesn't write off the past. Many traditional investment vehicles remain highly profitable - the secret is in knowing which ones, and MoneyShift will show you how.
More than just teaching you what's new, author and economist Jerry Webman shows you how to put his remarkable insights into action as you construct an investment portfolio for the 21st century that's tailored for your specific needs and aspirations. He describes, in detail, how to structure, monitor, and maintain that portfolio in the years ahead.
You can't wish away today's new financial reality, but you can take advantage of it. Change brings new and exciting opportunities, and with MoneyShift, you'll have everything you need to turn that change into profit.
This jogged my thinking nicely about portfolio choices, and added a few angles new to me. In that, it is what I was looking for. However, I would be wary if I had less background in investment and its theories. I find some discussions here shallow, skewed, dismissing alternatives and their virtues. On the brioght side, the broad, if shallow survey of recent investment trends and ideas, and the history, is always worth a recap and an update. I am careful, though, when I hear the discussion suddenly dip without warning straight into opinion, with some toss-off label attached to the effect of, "the time for this sort of thinking is over." That is to me generally not really an argument but a marketing slogan. I also note that the author is a fund manager, and coincidentally points often toward a more active portfolio style using the kindly (and, I have found, costly) assistance of fund managers. His arguments skew certain ways without rigorously examining why one would choose the alternatives, or the setup for what those alternatives would be. Buyer beware, but my time spent here was worthwhile.
