9780137153879: The Rise of the State: Profitable Investing and Geopolitics in the 21st Century

If you want to make money in the coming decade, you need to understand the two most powerful trends that are reshaping global markets right now: the growth of emerging economies, and the accelerating influence of sovereign wealth funds. Both trends share one crucial characteristic: they reflect the rising role of government actors, and make it more important for investors to understand geopolitics than ever before. These trends emerged well before the global financial and economic crisis, and that crisis has only strengthened them. In The Rise of the State, three leading investment advisors tell the hidden story of state investment power, and offer more than 70 specific investment recommendations you can start profiting from right now. The authors illuminate trends ranging from the new rise of Asia to the massive migration of individuals to cities worldwide - identifying implications and opportunities in areas ranging from energy to water, healthcare to education. You'll find powerful new insights into the surprising - and mostly positive - impact of sovereign wealth funds both within and outside the U.S. You'll also learn how to ride alongside these funds, understand their goals and strategies, and invest in the companies and industries they've identified as offering the greatest potential.

From the Back Cover:

“A radical and challenging look at the future of the entire world economy, zooming in on specific investment recommendations. A tour de force.”

--PETER BRIMELOW, Columnist, MarketWatch

 

“No one can ignore this book’s central message: The global cultural, economic, military, and political hegemony of Europe and the U.S. is yielding to a new multipolar age in which entirely new countries will increasingly drive global, economic, and social trends. No one will be successful unless they recognize this new reality, which will reshape global industries. It’s all here in The Rise of the State. I call it an essential read and road map for real wealth building in the years to come.”

--ROGER S. CONRAD, Editor, www.UtilityForecaster.com

 

“As a financial journalist, I’ve been reading and reviewing investment books for nearly three decades. Few have been as thought-provoking as The Rise of the State. The authors provide a detailed assessment of the world’s most enduring investment trends along with the specific stocks that are best positioned to benefit from these trends. The Rise of the State will forever change the way you look at your portfolio.”

--STEVEN HALPERN, Editor, www.TheStockAdvisors.com

 

“Energy will be a big part of the future, and the authors give readers straight talk about the realities of our energy sources going forward. I have read, reported, and followed Elliott Gue’s writings, appearances, and advice for years. You would do well to read The Rise of the State,

and even better, to believe it.”

--SUSAN MCGINNIS, Managing Editor and Anchor, Clean Skies News

 

“The authors will get you thinking about world economies and markets in a whole new way. Provocative, enlightening, and well worth reading to help you navigate your financial future.”

--GEORGE KLEINMAN, President, Commodity Resource Corp.; Author, The New Commodity Trading Guide: Breakthrough Strategies for Capturing Market Profits
