FINDING TOMORROW’S MARKETS FIRST Tomorrow’s booming economies are today’s emerging markets. Overlooked by most investors, these markets offer serious opportunities for those prepared to move ahead of the crowd and take their investing off the beaten path. If you’re an investor unafraid of the unfamiliar and looking to carve out extraordinary opportunities in new markets, this book should be your starting point. THE EMERGING MARKETS HANDBOOK provides investors with a highly detailed examination of 18 countries that could host the stock market stars of the future – from Chile and China to Thailand and Turkey. At its heart is an analysis of the 18 economies’ strength and potential for growth. This assessment is based on the ten crucial drivers of growth, including demographics, business conditions, capital markets and more. Following exhaustive research into the numbers behind each of these drivers, Pran Tiku is able to draw on a wealth of data from respected sources to form conclusions about the current position and future prospects of each market. He illustrates this data with explanatory charts and tables, allowing readers to trace recent trends and compare this to where the countries stand now. Providing a groundbreaking ranking of all emerging markets, the author goes on to sort them into standouts, in-betweeners and strugglers. This means you can truly see which markets offer the most commanding opportunities, which have room for development and which currently present a poorer investment case. Finally, the HANDBOOK concludes with a look at investment vehicles that can be used to access emerging market investments and a survey of the industries and companies that are likely to be the primary players within these 18 economies in the future. THE EMERGING MARKETS HANDBOOK is your indispensable guide to finding the future’s hottest markets. No investor can afford to be left behind.
It’s a jungle…in here! Most of us do too much, or have more possessions than we need. Or both. Our lives are caught in a swirl of attachments, overwhelm, and endless mechanical “doing.” As humans it is our nature to experience clarity and spaciousness all the time. The problem is we lose focus, get off balance, and forget how.
With inspiring lessons, humorous stories, and nourishing practices in slowing down, simplifying, and self-care, longtime space clearing expert, Stephanie Bennett Vogt, shows you how to clear your home, quiet the mind, and restore your spirit, in ways that feel good and last a lifetime.
Your Spacious Self shows us that it’s not our stuff, but holding on to it that creates a force field of “stuckness” that clouds our perceptions and paralyzes our lives. Clutter is not just the junk spilling out of the closet. It is any thing, or thought, that prevents us from experiencing our true nature and best life. Clearing is not a tedious exercise in throwing away, but a gentle journey of letting go – one small step, drawer, or moment at a time.
Included are daily tips and meditations, a weekly worksheet, and six sample meeting agendas designed for book groups and “clearing circle” support groups.
