The book is informative and John Maudlin offers a comprehensive look
at ways to invest in a Secular Bear Market. He runs thoroughly thru
what has happened historically in the markets and compares to
our current situation which he refers to as a Muddle Through Economy
or currently a Muddle Through Decade.

In many of the chapters, he collaborates with others who he feels
is an expert in a particular area. Generally, I think this book is
directed to money managers not individual investors.

John is not a money manager. He connects accredited investors
($1,000,000 net worth or $200,000/year income) interested in
his ideas to the firms he has a relationship with and then they
share any income generated.

He offers a lot of good sources throughout the book. He recommends
gold and hedgefunds. He stresses being in Value stocks and to
be in investments where the market is going not where the market
has been. He also recommends being diversified. He suggests waiting
on Bonds in a few years but recommends them nonetheless. He suggests
finding a bond manager with reasonable few structure. Getting a book
on bonds, not just a paragraph mentioned in an investment book, is the
way to learn.

John Maudlin enjoys doing what he does best reading other newsletters
and writing his own weekly newsletter that has currently has a
readership of 1,500,000 subscribers. You can sign up for his
newsletter at and
have his newsletter delivered to you e-mail box.
