Profiting from the World's Economic Crisis: Finding Investment Opportunities by Tracking Global Market Trends by Bud Conrad

Timely advice for finding investment opportunities during a global economic crisis In Profiting from the World's Economic Crisis, author Bud Conrad predicts a rough road ahead for our economy and reveals nontraditional investments that can make big money in difficult times. The crisis we are now entering is not the typical business recession but a major deleveraging that will be the biggest shift since the Great Depression. The stagflation of the U.S. economy will present great challenges on a global scale. Profiting from the World's Economic Crisis deftly addresses what investors need to know about today's turbulent economy, and highlights investments and global opportunities such as gold, interest rates, currency, and commodities that are likely to be profitable in the coming years. Bud Conrad, MBA (San Francisco, CA), is the Chief Economist at Casey Research and has been a futures investor for 25 years, as well as a full-time investor for more than a decade.
