Thefuture is being twisted by two forces against which you have no power. What you do have the power to do is to understand them, and to make your plans accordingly.
The first twist? The aftermath of the recession that started in 2008, and which one way or another – for all intents and purposes – is still ongoing.
It will be a brave new world, one that will require all the expertise you can muster from yourself and from whoever else is in your corner.
The second twist will come as a massive ‘people shift’ changes the demographics of the world. That twist is going to affect you too.
The real problem is, it is the fact that the two twists are going to be in place simultaneously. It will be a brave new world, one that will require all the expertise you can muster from yourself and from whoever else is in your corner.
The Twist lays out the blueprint for the challenges ahead and gives readers the tools they need to navigate through an economy that is both post-everything and ahead of much more.
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.
