From the Inside Flap
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.

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.
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.Read more ›
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!
