He presents a unified picture that extends far beyond a narrow view of financial markets, exploring the consequences of using global central banks - the Federal Reserve, the Bank of Japan, the People's Bank of China, and the European Central Bank - as cash machines; the debt model of growth now used worldwide; and the demographics of aging and the coming war between the young and the old.
He also looks at social trends including the anxiety of affluence, particularly the mismatch between the guaranteed cost of education and the uncertainty of future earnings; the real estate "barbell" and the consequences of viewing a home as a financial asset and not simply a place to live; and energy, climate, water, and food insecurity.
Jubak's mission is to teach investors how to stay sane when people think the sky is falling. In showing what is causing all of this volatility, he provides practical solutions for how you can smartly respond, build a portfolio, and profit.

Opens new doors understanding volatility
Encyclopedic overview of many markets world-wide and how they have or haven't worked together. There are many thought provoking examples of how one change someplace undermines or promotes big changes all over the place. This resulting volatility opens doors for an investor to make money, in both up and down markets. Good training for the over cautious.
The reader is outstanding. Lots of numbers and complex content. His excitement with the material keeps you glued to the storyline.
The writing is not stuffy--actually pretty amusing from time-to-time. I'm glad I listened.
