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.
If you buy insurance, drive a car, ride in a car, ride a bike or walk on roads where cars drive, this book is a must read. Exceptionally different than the books written by attorneys, this book is written by an injured person who recovered more than a quarter-million dollars. Based on a true story, the author takes you through the events immediately following an accident all the way to settling multiple insurance claims and a lawsuit. At every step along the way, there is a clear description of the pitfalls to avoid so that you too can maximize the money you receive.
And for those who haven’t had an accident – this book is a must read because it will give you the insight you need to choose the right auto and medical insurance companies so that you and your family members are protected when an accident occurs. Consumers have no idea what has occurred in the insurance industry over the last two decades. These changes will directly affect whether you will be compensated following an accident. After reading this book, you will be prepared to:
Calculate the value of your injuries and determine if filing a claim is worth your time and effort.
Take the four steps to file, negotiate and settle your claim.
Represent yourself without an attorney to maximize financial gain.
Hire, compensate and manage an attorney if you choose to do so.
Know what to say to insurers, and when to say it.
Know what not to say to insurers.
Learn how to work with your medical insurer so they don’t cancel coverage.
Select an auto insurance company that will honor the policy they sell you.
The final two chapters of the book analyze the insurance industry, documenting how insurance companies systematically delay and deny claims. Reading these chapters will create a shocking awareness that consumers are buying a product called insurance, but in fact are spending hard-earned money with companies that no longer honor the insurance contracts they sell. The final chapter lays out a clear plan for what consumers can do to protect them from buying insurance that won’t protect them.
