The world of finance and investment only seems to get more volatile, and making money by investing it is a more mysterious process than ever in an environment of tanking bank stocks (thanks to the sub-prime lending crisis), soaring oil prices, food shortages and price hikes, and profoundly changing demographic trends. The North American financial services industry bubble has burst, global markets are increasingly volatile, and companies are here today and gone tomorrow, leaving investors shell shocked and poorer. Investors are confused, nervous, and looking for sound advice on how they can profit from a rapidly changing-and sometimes hostile-investment environment.Shell Shocked explains how and why the global balance of power is rapidly changing and why Canadian companies and know-how are poised to win in this unprecedented transfer of influence. Bay Street veteran John Stephenson offers practical advice on how Canadian investors can make money by identifying profitable trends before they are yesterday's news. Forward-looking and prescriptive, Shell Shocked makes sense of where the world is going-looking at demographics, food crises and inflation, energy, gold, base metals, housing, infrastructure, water, and more-and how you can profit from it.
