9781604940381: The Big Gamble: Are You Investing or Speculating?

The Big Gamble takes you on an armchair journey from the tulip fields of 17th century Holland and the South Seas to the gaming tables in Las Vegas. Discover how economic bubbles form, and learn about an "early warning system" you can use to either avoid the next one or wisely capitalize on it. In plain English, without jargon or blue-sky economic theory, discover:

  • Why you're not really "playing it safe" when you invest conservatively, even in U.S. Treasury bills or mutual funds.
  • Nine financial risks you need to watch out for when building a portfolio or allocating investments in your 401(k) plan.
  • The twelve cardinal rules of speculating that are critical to successfully making your assets grow.
  • Why you should think twice before sinking your life savings into economic icons like General Motors or Wal-Mart.
  • Three surefire economic signals that will show you the "next big thing" and identify potential bubbles when they are beginning.

About the Author:

José D. Roncal has authored numerous articles on business strategy, finance, accounting, capital markets and the global economy. He has more than 20 years of experience in international business and finance, the last 15 as a CFO focusing on global mergers and acquisitions, cross-border joint ventures, strategic alliances and spin offs. Mr. Roncal holds an MBA from Thunderbird University and a BA from Florida International University, and has attended senior executive programs at Oxford University.

José N. Abbo has two decades of experience in the capital markets. He has authored numerous articles and speaks frequently on the financial markets and the global economy. In 2000, Mr. Abbo published Divisando Wall Street Desde el Sur de America, a comprehensive guide for the Spanish-speaking community that explains the workings of the stock market. He makes regular guest appearances on various radio and television programs and has served as an expert witness in financial trials and forensic cases.

Review:

The first mistake people make when dealing with financial decisions is to confuse investment with speculation, and speculation with outright gambling. Read this book and you will understand what the terms really mean. A great read! --Donald J. Trump
