Review:

First, the good news: smart investors will continue to get rich. Brian S. Wesbury, an economist and respected economic forecaster, believes the trends that led to so much wealth creation in the last two decades of the 20th century--a boom in productivity from technological innovation, smaller government, and anti-inflationary U.S. Federal Reserve policies--will continue in the first two decades of the 21st century. As Wesbury sees it, people who worry about the soaring stock market leading to a repeat of 1929 are looking for the wrong bogeyman. He argues convincingly that policy mistakes caused the Great Depression. Furthermore, he doesn't even believe stocks were particularly overpriced in the late 1920s, just as he doesn't believe they are in 2000. He views the dark days of the stock market from the mid-1960s to the early 1980s and the Japanese economy in the 1990s in much the same way. Where some see the brass knuckles of fate punching the lights out at the end of the party, Wesbury sees flawed governmental policies ruining brilliant economic expansions. He also shows how to cash in on the continuing good times. He says mutual fund investors, for example, should have a portfolio that's 50 percent index funds and 50 percent sector funds that buy new-era biotechnology and Internet stocks.

And now the bad news: just as a shift in governmental philosophy in the early 1980s helped the economy turn around, so could future shifts put the economy in reverse again. Wesbury cautions readers to be on the lookout for protectionism, tax increases, and excessive government regulation. But he also makes clear he doesn't believe those things will happen, that history has taught us valuable lessons we now know how to apply. If The New Era of Wealth could be summed up in one sentence, it might be: Economic disasters of the past don't have to serve as prologue. Wesbury's faith in the ability of humans to absorb such lessons makes this book a joyful read for the optimists among us. --Lou Schuler

Book Description McGraw-Hill Education - Europe, United States, 2002. Paperback. Condition: New. New edition. Language: English . Brand New Book ***** Print on Demand *****. Brian Wesbury s keen insight and sage advice put the stock market boom of the late 1990s into perspective. But more than a book about riding the wave, Wesbury shared with readers the four key principles that would continue to rule the stock market well into the 21st century. In The New Era of Wealth, Brian Wesbury explains the five key trends that created the boom - and will sustain economic growth for the future. Wesbury shows how understanding these trends will provide more investment ideas than any one individual could implement - and how understanding them will help investors avoid making huge mistakes with their money. In simple language, Wesbury, at once opinionated and optimistic, offers investment strategies for creating personal wealth in the years ahead. Invest in equities: The risk of investing in stocks will decline; Invest in bonds: When inflation is non-existent, even low yields provide a very high real interest rate; Trust serendipity: A dynamic economy increases opportunity; Wesbury employs a common sense economic approach to show how optimism is rewarded today will be in the future. He shares the tool that made him the top economist of 2001 and helps investors cut through the information overload to focus on only the most important data by explaining the investment implications for stocks, mutual funds, bonds, real estate, and commodities. With a new introduction by the author, the five key economic trends outlined in The New Era of Wealth and the investing strategies they spawn will help investors profit today and in the years to come.
