Top customer reviews
The book gives the reader a very good understanding of the big picture and the macro factors that affect it. I learned quite a few things.
The reasons that I can not give it a 5 stars is because
1 There is very limited coverage of equity selection. For example, what type of equities will do better relatively in an inflationary period, or the characteristics of different equities and how to select them. The author talks about equity as a whole and at a high level.
2 The author gives the Federal Reserve too high a grade. His evaluation of the incentives of the Federal Reserve system and the motives of the people running the Federal Reserve is too high and off the mark. He also praised the Fed for saving the world from a total collapse (in 2008-2009), which can never be proved true or imaginary.
Despite these short comings, investors can most likely benefit from this book.
This is a fantastic gift book for high school seniors and college aid students to introduce them to real world issues regarding finance and investing topics. This is especially true for his individual chapters in Part II regarding asset allocation, stock markets, interest rates and the bond market, U.S. Dollar, Gold, Commodities, and Real Estate. Very well written for whatever level of investor you are, new or very experienced.
