Synopsis: We've all heard that the year 2000 will disrupt our computer systems and throw financial circles into chaos, but most of us don't really understand how the crisis concerns us personally. Investment professional John F. Mauldin has written How to Profit from the Y2K Recession for people who want to learn exactly how the Millennium Bug is going to affect their day-to-day lives, and how they can shield themselves from the upcoming economic turmoil Y2K will cause.
In this practical and informative book, Mauldin explains why the problems surrounding the computer glitch will result in a Y2K recession. He then outlines straightforward methods for protecting one's money, investments, and home from the bug, and offers practical, real-world strategies to make the transition to the next century as smooth and profitable as possible. With How to Profit from the Y2K Recession, you'll learn:
-How the Y2K problem will affect businesses and investments worldwide
-Why the Y2K recession is inevitable
-What will separate those who make money from those who lose money
-Which specific funds, managers, and investments will do well
-Clear guidelines for protecting your investments in the next two years
-Simple steps that every investor and business owner should take immediately
-How you can prepare now for the new bull market following the Y2K recession
-What immediate steps you should take to make sure your family is prepared for potential problems stemming from breakdowns in power, government agencies, and other critical services.
Easy to read and understand, instructive and timely, How to Profit from the Y2K Recession is filled with useful advice and up-to-date information that will help anyone weather the coming crisis. It is an essential book for investors.
Review: New millennia, historically, have caused extreme reactions. Something about seeing those double zeros on the calendar flips people into new realms of logic and mystical belief. This time, though, the manic millenarians have a scientific basis for their doomsday scenarios: Computers across the world will interpret the '00 at the beginning of the new century as 1900 instead of 2000.
John F. Mauldin believes the societal upheavals of this glitch will lead to "double-digit unemployment, a stock market down 50 percent from its highs, and hundred-billion-dollar deficits." Fortunately, he believes, there's a way to come out ahead on these calamities, as we can see them coming.
He suggests you sell your bull-market stocks and mutual funds and take your lumps in capital-gains taxes. Then he offers a number of funds and strategies that capitalize on a falling stock market. This all involves market timing, a strategy most investors have been conditioned to believe is futile.
You can't read this book and not be frightened. The Y2K problem is scary; what it could do to the world economy is scarier; what it could do to your financial security is scarier still. And the profit-making strategies are probably the scariest part of the book. You have to make a leap of faith one way or the other: believe the world economy will keep chugging along, or batten down the hatches and prepare for a derailment. How to Profit from the Y2K Recession certainly gets you ready for the latter. --Lou Schuler
