From the Inside Flap:

Modern living is driven by oil, from the gasoline that propels ourcars to the electricity that powers our homes to the military thatprotects our freedom. Throughout the twentieth century, arelatively uninterrupted supply of oil has fueled our nation'sunparalleled growth.

Yet steadily increasing demand from the United States, as wellas from rapidly developing nations such as China and India, hasbegun to seriously strain the world's oil reserves. Thisrepresentsthe onset of a challenging new economic, philosophical,and political world—and an unprecedented opportunity forin-the-know investors.

Black Gold argues that oil prices are primed for an"überspike" and examines how institutional and individualinvestors can reap substantial rewards from this volatile anduncertain environment. Written by veteran oil analyst andjournalist George Orwel, this insightful and prescient bookprovides you with:

  • Analysis of alternative fuel sources, from solar and nuclearenergy to wind and even wood, and the pluses, minuses, andpotential investment value of each
  • Insights from dozens of major figures, from energy industryexecutives and observers to seasoned investing pros
  • An insider's look at Saudi Arabia and other Middle Easterncountries, discussing how what they say they canproduce—versus what they actually can produce—will rockfuture markets
  • Detailed charts and graphs on why the best time to invest inoil-related investments is NOW—and proven strategies foruncovering the most profitable opportunities
  • Actual investments, from ETFs and energy futures to hedge fundsand oil-related companies, that stand poised to provide you withbetter-than-average returns over both the short- and long-term

Oil is the dominant energy source fueling the modern economy.When you combine that knowledge with the fact that oil is anonre-?newable resource that will be exhausted at someindeterminate future time, it is easy to see how its value to youas an investor cannot be overstated.

Black Gold views this opportunity from every angle. Whether youare an oil industry executive looking for new perspectives or aninvestor searching for new ideas to enhance your portfolio'sperformance, this dramatic and valuable book will change the wayyou view today's evolving energy marketplace—and your role asan investor in that marketplace.
