From the Inside Flap

Shell Shocked explains why Canada will be the ultimate beneficiary of the global economic crisis and why buying all the Canada you can get makes sense. On just about every measure, Canada is ahead of the pack. We have the best fiscal situation of any G8 country. Our banking system, while not unblemished, has survived the meltdown and is in an ideal position to cherry-pick the cream of the crop globally. Canada's housing sector, while overvalued, never saw the excesses so prevalent in Great Britain and the United States. We have a national health care system, our government sector is strong and our reputation globally has been enhanced rather than diminished by this ordeal.

We've always been told that diversification outside of Canada made good investment sense. That Canada was just too small, too unproductive and too short on global champions to justify investing solely at home. But the world has changed. Canada is rising and so are the prospects for Canadian investors. Shell Shocked dispels the common wisdom with a bold claim-Canada is ground zero for investment success.
