About the Author
Linda Nazareth is an economist, author, and television journalist who since 1999 has been the in-house economist for Business News Network (BNN), Canada’s only all-business television network.
Over the next twenty years, the world as we know it is going to change in innumerable ways—all of which will have a profound effect on the economy. In order to be successful—in your business, your portfolio, your career, and your life—a knowledge and understanding of these changes is key. In Economorphics, economist, author, broadcaster, and public speaker Linda Nazareth offers a guidebook to these changes and the ways that you can make them work for you.
Economorphics is a must-read for investors, employers, employees, and anyone who has ever wondered what the future might look like.
The Big Demographic Shifts: Why the demographic window is slamming shut; how a wave of mobility is changing the global playing field; why cities are getting bigger, and why that means there is more at stake in terms of the economy.
The Economic Power Shifts: How countries are hamstrung by public debt, and what that means for public policy; why the economic deck is getting reshuffled, and which countries are moving up, and which are moving down; why a new middle class is emerging, and why that is great and terrible at the same time; why North America’s income structure is starting to resemble a stuck teeter-totter, and what that means to the economic outlook.
The New Realities and Attitudes: Why resource prices are headed up—and then up some more; why work is not a place anymore, and what that will mean for the people who used to be employers and employees; why financial markets are going to be challenging for a long while to come, and how you can safeguard yourself and your investments; why what the boomers do next still matters, and what it is that they are likely to do; why the era of “ladies first” is upon us, and why that is a good thing; and, finally, why we are on the edge of a new age of innovation (why we really need to be on the edge of one).
Forthe past three decades, we have been steadily creating an extreme ‘time-crunch economy’ that has affected jobs, portfolios, businesses and lives.
Everyone from consumers, investors, businesses, and policy-makers will need to understand the changes afoot.
But the ‘time-crunch economy’ is turning into ‘the leisure economy’ and it will mean wrenching adjustments for our lives and institutions. Everyone from consumers, investors, businesses, and policy-makers will need to understand the changes afoot.
TheLeisure Economy posits profound economic changes in North America due to both the retirement of the baby boomers and the attitudes of ascendant generations X and Y. Looking at trends in demographics, economics and generational change, this book looks at how to stay ahead of the leisure economy and predicts who will be the winners and losers in the seismic shift ahead.
InThe Ever After Effect, popular analyst Linda Nazareth gives us a clear-eyed analysis of the end of the boom, and provides investors with an inside perspective on what happened and why.
The perfect companion to personal investment guides…
The Ever After Effect will help investors understand the previous economic cycles that affected their portfolios, and prepared them for what to expect next. During the 1990s the U.S. economy went for a wild ride and took everybody else along with it. Things were so good that it was sometimes described as the “Goldilocks” economy – not too hot and not too cold.
…Then the bears started to catch up with Goldie.
The Ever After Effect looks at the phenomenon of the dot.com era and its eventual meltdown, and the lessons that should – but might not – have been learned for a happily ever after scenario.
