Editorial Reviews

From the Inside Flap

With the collapse of investment banks, trillion-dollar-plus government bailouts, and decimated retirement portfolios, it's never been more important to understand the "new rules" of making money.

Faced with the reality that "investing will never be the same again," Fiscal Hangover may well be the most important book you'll read this year. In one easy lesson after another, you'll discover exactly what it takes to profit—and profit grandly—from the simple ideas that form the basis of the new global economy.

For the first time in 200 years, American consumers are no longer the driving force behind the world's economy. And now, with Fiscal Hangover, Keith Fitz-Gerald—one of the world's leading experts on global investing—picks apart every important change and shows you the opportunities about to arise. You'll discover how the U.S. role in the world economy is shrinking at unheard-of rates; how and why government intervention may well prevent the U.S. markets from normalizing for years to come; why Asia could well become the center of the financial world; how and why China's yuan is quietly replacing the U.S. dollar as the world's reserve currency; and much more.

Most importantly, Fitz-Gerald shows you how to capitalize on each and every trend. His secrets are simple—and so is his advice: get ahead of the biggest movements in the global economy, and you'll be set for a lifetime of riches. In fact, in his preview of this new $300 trillion global "recovery," you'll discover:

  • The biggest short- and long-term trends, andhow to play them
  • Where the global flows of money are moving—and how to get ahead of them
  • How to best avoid inflation and protect thebuying power of your money
  • Which countries and sectors are almostinevitable winners
  • Why China may well have the largest marketcapitalization in the world in a few short years (and why getting in now may be the mostprudent thing every investor can do)
  • How to play gold, oil, and alternative energy inthe new global environment
  • And how five simple plays can ensure yourretirement—and that of your children, too

Unlike most of today's finance books, which are as lasting as yesterday's newspaper, Fiscal Hangover shows you how to prepare for what's to come, effectively allocate yourinvestments, and grab your share of the greatest wealth creation opportunities in history.

The coming years may hold the greatest investment potential of our times, but in order to take advantage of this situation, you'll need the insights that can only be found in Fiscal Hangover.

From the Back Cover

Praise for Fiscal Hangover: How to Profit from the New Global Economy

"An excellent global investment primer that even seasoned investors should take note of. Not only does Keith Fitz-Gerald see the big picture, he understands how and why it is about to change."
Peter Schiff, President, Euro-Pacific Capital, and author of Crash Proof

"The past 500 years of global business history has proven only that overzealous bankers and quixotic government leaders repeatedly figure out how to fail more spectacularly. Fiscal Hangover provides a brilliant, spirited explanation of the origins of the current mess—and more importantly how you can cleverly turn the chaos to your advantage.It's a must-read for investors of all skill levels who want to prepare for the author's surprising conclusion: boom times ahead, especially overseas."
Jon D. Markman, Columnist, MSN Money; Editor, Strategic Advantage and Trader's Advantage investment advisories; and bestselling author of The New Day Trader Advantage

"Keith Fitz-Gerald is one of the smartest analysts I know. And Fiscal Hangover is his best work yet. This is essential reading for every serious investor. Highly recommended."
Alexander Green, Investment Director, The Oxford Club, and bestselling author of The Gone Fishin' Portfolio and The Secret of Shelter Island

"America may be suffering from a fiscal hangover, but America's loss is China's gain. If you don't follow his advice, you will be left behind. Do the smart thing—buy this book, apply the simple techniques for making money in it, and become a winning investor."
Dr. Mark Skousen, Editor, Forecasts & Strategies, founder of FreedomFest, and author of Investing in One Lesson

"Keith addresses the 'elephant in the room' (unprecedented massive government spending) and explains its implications for us as individuals and as a nation. His lucid writing and conversational tone make Fiscal Hangover one of the most informative and entertaining books covering one of the most timely and critical issues of our time."
Paul Forchione, former CBOE Market Maker, Floor Trader, CTA, and author of Trading Options Visually

I've already read this book once and am getting ready to read it again, it is that good.

A perfect combination of US economic history and clear insight into the development of a Global Economy with China's "Red Dragon" at its epicenter.
Reuven Shapiro
I really enjoyed reading Fiscal Hangover, It was a quick read and covered a fair amount of information.

I listened to a presentation about/by this author on the computer, which began with a lie about Warren Buffett (which I did not know was untrue at the time) and continued for about an hour. I was told repeatedly that I would receive a book on Obamacare by Betsy McCaughey and 2 other publications, so I stayed on and listened to all of the talk so that I could get this book to help a friend sign up for healthcare. My friend is losing her Cobra at the end of December and no one will insure someone with her history...I probably wouldn't if I were an insurance company!!! Only the government has the money to help keep people that sick alive--as a nurse for 25 years my friend has paid her dues and deserves to live.
After hearing that I would receive the book and publications numerous times, I found at the end that I was required to subscribe to a publication called 'Money Map Report', with 12 issues yearly costing $129.00...and if I bought it within 5 minutes, the cost would be cut in half.
I called the number that was given to subscribe 1-866-460-9039 to be told by the first person to answer the phone and then customer service that I could not possible receive the book until I paid for the subscription.
IS BAIT & SWITCH LEGAL?
I wasted an hour or more of a beautiful evening and at 75 years of age, I don't have that many more hours to waste.
This guy is a scam artist and beware of the glowing recommendation because they most likely were written by his friends.

This is nothing more than a prolonged description of the history of our fiscal problems in the U.S. I was hoping for some thorough suggestion as to what the future would look like and what we could do to deal with it. I didn't find it.

I think Keith glosses over a lot of relevant history, sometimes with the wrong conclusion. I expected more succinct dialog in what his suggestions were. It just seemed like a pump for another investment news letter.

A well written resume of the development of the current economic situation. Offers a balanced view of international trade and some practical advice on investment strategies. Offered are some recommendations that may well pay off, but nothing earth shaking.

I received the book, read it one night, re-read it and took some notes in the
margins, and placed stars and bar next to some sections of the book which are highlighted already. The highlighted areas, or boxed in areas, and the graphs
are the meat of the book. The language in between the highlighted areas gives the details for the assessment in the boxed in statements;
so actually you do not need to make notes, but I do so because that is my way to review. Also, he is not alone in his observations. There are three other sites and newsletters I use to get the pulse
of the economy, National and Global. Since there is government interference with free market economies, it is important to know what the government
in Washington D.C. and in London is doing. For example, if you buy Gold, which I do not do any more, and the Bank of London is told to sell all the Gold it can when it goes over 400 dollars an ounce,
and the USA government supports the Bank of London in that move - they did that years back, within the last 20 years and that is why I could not make any money on it - I am competing with the Bank of London and the USA government and I am just a small guy compared to a big government. Had I known that, I would not have bought gold and held it for 5 years, but I saw I was making nothing on the gold. I realized, I needed to know what the governments were doing because we do not have free market economies. In his book, he also talks about three things to know about investing in a country:
1. stable government 2. good economic infrastructure 3.and a fair functioning
justice system. He is correct to a T.
A bonus in the book is The Rule : Gamblers Ruin. That led me to the Wikipedia and it was found under Probability Theories in Mathematics.

This book is NOT for those who cling dearly to the way things were, to a tidy and comfortable USA-centric view of the economic universe. Fiscal Hangover is clearly the work of a thinking man who eschews armchair analysis based on yesterday's models and "common knowledge". Mr. Fitz-Gerald has apparently spent significant amounts of time in the real, as well as statistical, trenches of the new investment frontier and he shares with the reader his spectacular findings in a refreshingly irreverent, fun to read and easy to understand tone that is--well--uncharacteristic of the genre to say the least.

If you are looking for an excellent description of how the investment economy really IS and really WILL be, if you are ready for an exciting Panda Punk vision of the wild rabbit hole where the rules are like mutant clones of the ones you know, then this is a MUST READ BOOK. And here is the kicker that will stop your ticker: this book would be a complete success if it simply stopped at the Blue Pill/Red Pill versions of reality. But it also gives some very specific guidelines about what regular mortals like you and I can do to take advantage of this information TODAY! Many times while reading this book I was so revved up I could barely breathe! The message: We can be a part of this jazzy new world, not just passive observers. Are "yuan" the bus, or not?

I have never enjoyed a hangover until now, but please note that this is one Hangover that will NOT be cured by the hair of the dog!
