9780132358101: The Great Deleveraging: Economic Growth and Investing Strategies for the Future

In the past decade, the United States experienced two periods of excessive growth periods followed by two massive collapses: the technology and housing bubbles.  Both were caused by illusions of growth and wealth creation: They were built on thin air. As an investor, how can you distinguish between “fake” wealth and the real thing? Where can you earn solid returns without falling victim to bubbles? Read The Great Deleveraging and find out. Former Wall Street analyst, strategist and Associate Director of Equity Research Chip Dickson and leading global business scholar Oded Shenkar first identify the policies and characteristics of societies most likely to generate real economic growth and investor wealth. Next, they outline specific lessons learned about bubbles and growth from nearly a century of investment returns. Finally, they identify global markets and sectors poised for high levels of sustainable growth--and make specific investment recommendations for each of them. In the wake of massive debt creation, history’s greatest deleveraging is now underway. For many investors, the next decade will be brutal. This book’s messages are designed to achiever real profits and real wealth creation.  They are meant to help you navigate a challenging environment--and, hopefully, thrive.

From the Back Cover:

In a World of Debt and Bubbles, Learn Important Lessons to Navigate These Turbulent Times

 

“Dickson and Shenkar do a masterful job of wrapping context around the current crisis and mapping the territory ahead. But where others are satisfied to merely describe, the authors provide a clear strategic context for investors seeking long-term opportunities amidst today’s uncertainty and confusion. The Great Deleveraging is a compelling, insightful read that at once informs and guides the reader through the financial turbulence that has become the new normal.”

--Paul Saffo, Managing Director, Foresight, DISCERN, and Distinguished Visiting Scholar, Stanford Media-X Research Network

 

“In The Great Deleveraging , Chip Dickson and Oded Shenkar place the bewildering events of recent years into historical context and map out the changes they see for the investment landscape of the future.”

--Warren Hatch, PhD, CFA, Catalpa Capital Advisors

 

“This invaluable one-of-a-kind book tackles the number-one economic issue of the early 21st century (excessive systemic financial leverage) and even provides a framework for investment success. Capital market students and investors alike will greatly benefit from a close study of the details, methods, and analyses incorporated in this timely treatise at such a critical junction in financial market history.”

--Jack Malvey, CFA, Global Capital Markets Consultant, Former Chief Global Fixed-Income Strategist, Lehman Brothers

 

The Great Deleveraging is packed with important financial clues and warning signals from a well-respected pro and a leading academic, to help you recognize the signs of a future financial calamity.”

--A. Michael Lipper, CFA, President, Lipper Advisory Services, Inc.

What disciplines help you find solid returns and provide warning signs about bubbles?
