–Louise O'Halloran, Executive Director, Responsible Investment Association Australasia
"John Rubino's Clean Money finds the signal of truth in the noise of hype in the green investing market, zeros in on the most relevant and promising companies and technologies, and navigates the treacherous macro-economic waters that may cause investors to jump into the alternative energy market either too early or too late. Essential reading for investors seeking to profit from the coming boom in clean energy."
–Eric Janszen, founder and President of iTulip, and author of the forthcoming The New New Deal
Today, we face unprecedented environmental and energy challenges. But for astute investors, this might actually be good news, because big, complex problems create vast opportunities. Solutions for global warming or Peak Oil will be worth literally trillions of dollars, and capital, as a result, is pouring into "clean" technologies like solar power and desalination. Understand this transitionand avoid its many pitfallsand you have a chance to profit from one of tomorrow's great bull markets.
With Clean Money, John Rubino, Editor of GreenStockInvesting.com, introduces you to the world of clean tech (also known as green tech) and its wealth creation potential. His two previous books were right on target, correctly predicting the recent housing bust and credit crisis, and helping many readers achieve financial independence. Now, with Clean Money, Rubino skillfully explains:
Why green tech will be the investment opportunity of a lifetime
How to build a clean-tech portfolio that fits your temperament and circumstances
Why the hottest green sectors are also the most complex and risky
How to approach this market wisely by separating reality from hype
This accessible guide introduces a variety of clean energy sourcesfrom solar power and wind to geothermal and biofuelsand shows how these renewable resources will spawn successful companies and rising share prices. Clean Money also clearly explains newer concepts like emissions trading and desalination that will play major roles in the transition to sustainable abundance. Page by page, you'll discover the technologies that will drive this boom and become familiar with the state of their markets, their growth prospects, and the companies that are best positioned to become tomorrow's success stories.
After putting the clean-tech boom in perspective, Clean Money presents a series of investment strategies for building your own portfolio of clean-tech stocks, while helping to minimize the risks that always accompany markets with extraordinary upside potential.
A growing number of outlets offer investors a general sense of clean tech's potential, but very few explain exactly how to safely navigate this complex market. Clean Money fills that void by presenting a wide range of strategies based on common sense, the history of previous booms, and the ideas of money managers at the forefront of this fast-moving field. While there is no one-size-fits-all answer to picking winners in this dynamic arena, there are strategies that will both feel right and increase your odds of successand this book will show you what they are.
It will show you which industries are promising, and which need to adapt or are poised to fail.
I highly recommend it to not just environmentally conscious investors, but for anyone wanting SOMETHING to invest in with this dismal economy.
Rubino is an excellent writer--one who's easy to understand and one who can provide good information.
