The global economy is likely to get worse before it gets better. We can no longer sit back and expect that our superannuation or pension programs will see us comfortably through retirement. Unless we take an interest in how much we are putting aside and how our money is being invested – and the earlier in our working lives the better – there is a good chance that we will end up with less than we expect. This timely book explains, in everyday language, the driving forces behind the economic issues we face, and how they are likely to play out. It also lays out the basics of saving and investing for retirement, then builds on these basics for those who wish to go further. Find out more about: * equities, bonds, cash, and property * gold and currency * borrowing and leverage in investing * dynamic asset allocation, for the more experienced investor Damian Lillicrap offers a rare insider's view of the finance and investment industry and shares over two decades of expertise gained from working in the world's major financial markets. He relates the economies of countries to the budgets that families deal with around their kitchen tables; the same home truths apply to both. If you don't know where to start to get your superannuation or pension in order, if you want to make sense of the finance news, if you are concerned about the legacy you are leaving your children, then you must read Kitchen Table Economics and Investing.

SELECTED AS A 2008 BEST BUSINESS BOOK OF THE YEAR BY THE ECONOMIST "ONE OF THE SMARTEST INVESTORS ON THE PLANET."--MONEY MAGAZINE “This book is an essential read for those who wish to understand the modern world of investing.” —Alan Greenspan Winner of the 2008 Financial Times and Goldman Sachs Business Book of the Year Award When Markets Collide is a timely alert to the fundamental changes taking place in today's global economic and financial systems--and a call to action for investors who may fall victim to misinterpreting important signals. While some have tended to view asset class mispricings as mere “noise,” this compelling book shows why they are important signals of opportunities and risks that will shape the market for years to come. One of today's most respected names in finance, Mohamed El-Erian puts recent events in their proper context, giving you the tools that can help you interpret the markets, benefit from global economic change, and navigate the risks. The world economy is in the midst of a series of hand-offs. Global growth is now being heavily influenced by nations that previously had little or no systemic influence. Former debtor nations are building unforeseen wealth and, thus, enjoying unprecedented influence and facing unusual challenges. And new derivative products have changed the behavior of many market segments and players. Yet, despite all these changes, the system's infrastructure is yet to be upgraded to reflect the realities of today's and tomorrow's world. El-Erian investigates the underlying drivers of global change to shed light on how you should: Think about the new opportunities and risks Construct an appropriately diversified and internationalized portfolio Protect your portfolio against new sources of systemic risk Best think about the impact of central banks and financial policies around the world Offering up predictions of future developments, El-Erian directs his focus to help you capitalize on the new financial landscape, while limiting exposure to new risk configurations. When Markets Collide is a unique collection of books for investors and policy makers around the world. In addition to providing a thorough analysis and clear perspective of recent events, it lays down a detailed map for navigating your way through an otherwise perplexing new economic landscape.
