TORONTO, Sept. 24 /CNW/ - The most important investment you make this
year could be one or two hours reading this short but informative book from
one of the country's leading investment practitioners.
There is a great deal of confusion these days about what the economy
actually is, how it works, and where it is heading. In the midst of wrenching
global economic change, the need for a clear reasoned explanation has never
David Serber, a Vice President and Portfolio Manager with RBC Dominion
Securities in Toronto, provides that clear voice in his new book, Inflation,
China and Oil: How to Protect and Enhance Your Wealth in the Early 21st
Century. The book is a surprisingly fresh and easy-to-read look at what every
investor is wondering: What is going on, why is it happening and, most
importantly, what should I do about it?
Serber is well-worth listening to. In the fall of 2003, he advised his
clients, "Add gold to your portfolio." The price was $375 per ounce. Within
five years it had topped $1,000. Find out how he reached this conclusion, and
what he sees as the big winners (and losers) ahead.
Looking forward, Serber helps investors better understand three critical
developments that will affect their finances: The risk that inflation may be
heading higher, the rise of China as a global economic power and whether we
face an oil supply crisis. In each case, the reader is given specific sample
investments that would benefit from the trends he identifies.
In just 85 pages, Serber takes the reader on a grand tour of the global
economy - past, present and future. From Adam Smith to Bismarck, Keynes,
Roosevelt, Reagan, Thatcher and Deng Xiaoping, we follow the debate between
advocates of free-market forces and government control of the economy. Says
Serber: "Because of government's pervasive involvement in today's economy, it
is critical for investors to appreciate how government policy is affecting
their portfolios. That is why this book examines, among other things, the
tension between free-market capitalism and state-controlled socialism, both
from a historical perspective and what can be expected in the future. The
lessons are essential for a savvy investor in today's environment and beyond."
