From Brazilian farmlands to Colombian gold fields, from Chinese shopping malls to Indian hotels, from South African wine country to the boom/bust souks of Dubai, this around-the-world investing field trip explores the nooks and crannies for hidden investment opportunities. World Right Side Up: Investing Across Six Continents is packed with ideas to power your portfolio in the years ahead while teaching you a little fascinating history along the way. Fact is, the world's markets have changed in a big way. For the first time since before the Industrial Revolution, the emerging markets now contribute as much to the global economy as their more well-developed peers. Far from being an anomaly, this state of affairs is more in line with the bulk of human experience. For centuries, China and India were the world's largest economies. And so the world is turning...right side up.
This change creates a wealth of opportunities for investors, in both the emerging markets and developed markets. World Right Side Up is your guide on how to take full advantage of this shift.
- Provides an entertaining view of various regions visited by the author, including South America, Asia, Africa, North America, and the Middle East
- Explores specific investment ideas and themes, including opportunities in agriculture, water, energy, infrastructure and much more
- Includes five key takeaways from each region, an invaluable feature, offering resources to consult for more information and guidance
While some people fear the changes happening now, the reality is that for the forward-thinking investor, these sizable new markets will create extraordinary new opportunities.

À propos de l'auteur

This book describes investment ideas in Colombia, Brazil, Nicaragua, China, India, the Emirates, South Africa, Australia, New Zealand, Thailand, Cambodia, Vietnam, Mongolia, Argentina, Russia, Turkey, Central Asia, Canada, and the United States. Mayer talks about his experiences at most, perhaps all, of these places. He is sort of a globetrotter describing the history of these areas. He reads books from other globetrotters. He mentions the good and at times the bad about these countries.
One of the things that is interesting about this book is how it describes the the growth of the emerging markets. Long ago, they were economically small but now they are growing, exporting or importing raw materials. The emerging markets are out there. They are becoming significant economic players. The growth of emerging market has happened before, like South Korea and I think Japan.
The book covers investment opportunities in the United States too.
One thing I thought was strange is the story about the growth of top secret industry. Considering the recent news of Snowden leaking top secret data, I thought it strange reading about the growth of the top secret industry. The book was written more than a year ago.
This was a pretty good book. The book is replete with investing ideas. Sort of makes a person want to invest in emerging markets in order to get into the action and make some money. It is sort of a page turner. I would recommend the book to anybody who is interested in investing, particularly those seeking global exposure.
This is not so much a "how to" as a look at how the world has always been (power residing in the East except for a few recent centuries) and the inescapable fact that those who produce THINGS (as opposed to debt or war) are much better positioned. Who knew that New Zealand provided 1/3 of all dairy products or that 30% of all fresh water was in central America?
Along with the personal vignettes of industrial heroes and heroines is common sense recommendations, advice and warnings. Yes, a nation may be blessed but if its government does not allow its bounty to be exploited (Argentina was a case in point) then what good is it? As one suspects, almost all of his recommendations are from the "third world". After all, this is where goods are made and folks are only beginning to learn what fresh food, air conditioner and modern conveniences are. Great read.
Chris Mayer, author, newsletter writer and investment expert uses his travels around the world to remind us that the world we know wasn't always as it is now. By now, I mean (and he means) the time when modern western civilizations have been ascendent. At one point in our most recent history, according to Mayer, the Western nations represented a great majority (I recall 80%) of worldwide GDP. But 1000 years earlier (and through the dark ages, I imagine), great civilizations such as the Ottoman empire, Egypt, China shone brightly. And, of course, the north american influence is a mere 300 years of that timeline.
It's all there, and as I read, a great calm came over me. We are not in a time of great madness. Just a "reversion to the mean". A return towards "how it was before, how it has always been.) I can do that.
Take a look, you'll see. With a fresh perspective, you can do it, too.
