A Wall Street Journal bestseller
Financial expert, investment advisor and New York Times bestselling author James Rickards shows why and how global financial markets are being artificially inflated--and what smart investors can do to protect their assets
What goes up, must come down. As any student of financial history knows, the dizzying heights of the stock market can't continue indefinitely--especially since asset prices have been artificially inflated by investor optimism around the Trump administration, ruinously low interest rates, and the infiltration of behavioral economics into our financial lives. The elites are prepared, but what's the average investor to do?
James Rickards, the author of the prescient books Currency Wars, The Death of Money, and The Road to Ruin, lays out the true risks to our financial system, and offers invaluable advice on how best to weather the storm. You'll learn, for instance:
* How behavioral economists prop up the market: Funds that administer 401(k)s use all kinds of tricks to make you invest more, inflating asset prices to unsustainable levels.
* Why digital currencies like Bitcoin and Ethereum are best avoided.
* Why passive investing has been overhyped: The average investor has been scolded into passively managed index funds. But active investors will soon have a big advantage.
* What the financial landscape will look like after the next crisis: it will not be an apocalypse, but it will be radically different. Those who forsee this landscape can prepare now to preserve wealth.
Provocative, stirring, and full of counterintuitive advice, Aftermath is the book every smart investor will want to get their hands on--as soon as possible.
Great depth yet wonderful scope
I find the work insightful and very educational.
Great content, informative, truthful, and no hidden agenda! The author genuinely values accuracy and honesty.
I got the audio version narrated by the Author. It was hard to stay awake as his voice was mellow and monotone at times. Audio books can be a challenge, I will certainly get the book since there is so much I would highlight.
Thank you for putting such great effort in this book. It’s fantastically researched. More people should know this information.
Richards has a eerily specific focus.
His audiobook is well read. The content is unique in the sense of mechanic levers that get pulled in a chronological process. This is the kind of content you listen to more than once, and dive deeper into the perspective. Great timing too...
