How ordinary Australians can create wealth in the wake of 2001-09-11
by N E Renton (published by
This thought-provoking book looks at the issues facing ordinary Australians who wish to invest in the era following the terrorist attacks in the United States on 2001-09-11. This was the day which changed the world for ever.
A knowledge of the background to this history-making event will help investors to see in better context the advice being offered to them by their stockbrokers and other professional advisers. The book also puts on record some interesting contemporary material and discusses the roles of the central bank and the government.
The book, written in plain English, looks at the principal asset classes of greatest relevance to current savers who are investing either directly and through managed funds. The topics covered include ordinary shares, property and fixed investment (including the new convertible and reset securities).
The book cautions against falling for scams. Some interesting case studies and numerical examples are included to illustrate the general principles being discussed.
A dramatic eye-witness account of the events in New York is included. An intriguing scam involving heating oil futures is analysed. Fay Marles provided the Foreword.
