From the Inside Flap
Today, the United States and Western Europe, in particular, are dealing with the consequences of globalization and unbridled increases in individual and national debt. During the decade completed at the end of 2009, we have witnessed two major bear stock markets, two volatile rebounds, and almost the total collapse of the global financial system. The S&P 500 index generated a total return of minus 9.46% while the CPI inflation index rose 22.06%.??So, even with 2009's rebound on Wall Street, the stock market still experienced a loss of purchasing power equal to 31.52%. It has been one of the worst ten-year periods, along with the decade ending in 2008, in the stock market since the Great Depression, and it is not over yet. These are truly difficult and turbulent times for investors.
How did we get into this mess? Where are we in the recovery cycle? What's the solution to our problems? What is the long-term outlook for the market? How should people invest in the "new normal" environment of high unemployment, excess manufacturing capacity, and tightening credit? In The Evergreen Portfolio: Timeless Strategies to Survive and Prosper from Investing Pros, these questions and many more are answered by a select team of highly respected investment professionals and political heavyweights, including:
*Mark Skousen, editor of Forecasts & Strategies
*Elliott Gue, editor of The Energy Strategist
*Richard Maybury, publisher of U.S. & World Early Warning Report
*Alex Green, Director of The Oxford Club
*Neil George, editor of By George
*Ian McAvity, editor of Deliberations on World Markets
*Ben Shepherd, editor of Global ETF Profits
*Rick Rule, owner of Global Resource Investments LP
*Frank Trotter, President of EverBank
*Adrian Day, CEO of Adrian Day Asset Management
*Robert Prechter, editor of The Elliott Wave Theorist
*Bob Barr, former U.S. Congressman and Libertarian Party presidential candidate
*Alan Keyes, former Republican presidential candidate
Today, during the dark days of a long-term deleveraging/deflationary cycle, the easy days of "buy and hold" investing and simple asset-style diversification are gone. What matters most for investors is the preservation of asset value and purchasing power. That requires a workable plan. The Evergreen Portfolio brings together the investment world's best and brightest to provide you with that plan, because neither living in the past nor hoping for the best is a strategy.
