Research and Markets: Profiting from the World's Economic Crisis: Finding Investment Opportunities by Tracking Global Market Trends

DUBLIN, Nov 12, 2010 (BUSINESS WIRE) -- Research and Markets ( has announced the addition of John Wiley and Sons Ltd's book "Profiting from the World's Economic Crisis: Finding Investment Opportunities by Tracking Global Market Trends" to their offering.

Bud Conrad predicts a gloomy and rough road ahead for investors as a result of a number of events/forces that have or are about to occur. Among the reasons that there needs to be a long term change to the economic system are the increasing US government deficits, the increasing US trade deficit, rising oil prices, shortages of food production, falling earnings, Middle East conflicts, rising health care costs, credit crisis and the weakening dollar. Conrad believes that some of the government's actions such as bailing out banks and curring interest rates are band aids that don't address that bigger more serious issues. It is not just the dollar that is weak but paper currencies throughout the world.

The housing decline may last for a long time and the stagflation of the US economy will present great challenges for the government. Profiting from the World's Economic Crisis deftly addresses what investors need to know about the troubled economy.
