Editorial Reviews

From Publishers Weekly

In this exhaustive (and exhausting) look at the future of energy, Bell, a professor of management and chairman of the economics department at Brooklyn College, CUNY, maps a complicated future for investors and laymen with clear-eyed examination of failed U.S. environmental policy and worldwide efforts to break away from oil. Under discussion are a wide range of topics: the stampede away from oil; wind energy and turbines; photovoltaic opportunities; what carmakers are saying and what they're actually doing (including a careful look at the popular Toyota Prius); the extremely lengthy timetables for new energy-saving technologies to get off the ground; and the processes, research and expectations tied up in them all. Drawing an analogy to the dotcom debacle, Bell predicts investment in the hot properties of energy tech will lead to a bubble effect, eventually draining the financial resources of investors who linger too long. Frequently fascinating anecdotes-as in the story of Sweden's green welfare state and bicycles of Lyon-buoy what otherwise can read like a university course. Bell's latest (following 2003's The Stock Market Sting) is an educated, opinionated tour through the future of energy economics that should shore up the will and wisdom of investors, as well as open the eyes of average Americans.

From the Publisher

* The next four years will be an increasingly frenzied lead-up to a gigantic stock market bubble in renewable energy.

* The new energy revolution will have a profound impact on everything that human beings construct, move, or deliberately heat or cool.

* The consequences of the first truly global stock market bubble will transform every country, every industry, and nearly every business.

This book will act as a road map for the new energy revolution. It will serve as a guide to understanding the rapidly unfolding events, as well as a business reference for individual and institutional investors and for government policy advisors.

The Green Bubble explains why huge global, political, and economic changes will occur, what changes will be promoted, and who will promote them -- in short, who will gain and who will lose.

But after the bubble bursts, most of the investors in the bubble, those who did not get out in time and numbering perhaps a billion or more, will have lost a material amount of their life savings. Some will have invested individually, others through their pension funds, still others through their government's tax money, and, finally, quite a few through all of the above.

And, what of the outcome? A World War magnitude of invested money will actually have paid for the transformation out of oil and into renewable energy. The result -- the climate will probably have been saved, and there will be nearly limitless energy. But it will have virtually no monetary value. Energy will be "too cheap to meter."

Readers of The Green Bubble will learn about the new energy revolution and will discover what works and what doesn't, and why they will have to watch their investments closely -- especially those made by others on their behalf.
