Product description

From the Back Cover

Disasters happen every day.
Are your investments prepared?

The investor who knows how to anticipate historically significant or earth-shattering events—who is prepared to act when others are frozen with fear—will always have a substantial advantage. By closely analyzing potential global threats and the opportunities they present, The Wall Street Journal Guide to Investing in the Apocalypse offers investors the key to finding a silver lining in almost any cataclysm. Even if the catastrophic does not occur, the strategies here can pay huge dividends even under more mundane circumstances.

The Wall Street Journal Guide to Investing in the Apocalypse provides readers with valuable information for investment success: the ability to see opportunity where others see peril. Whether a global disaster is natural or man-made, environmental or financial, every fearsome scenario contains the seeds of profit for the investor who stays calm and thinks rather than panics and runs.

5.0 out of 5 stars Doomesday Scenarios and possible stock winners 5 Jun. 2013
By Patrick L Irwin - Published on Amazon.com
Format: Paperback Verified Purchase
Helpful information on investing under disaster conditions. While most people do not want to profit from another person's misery, money will be made addressing the aftermath and righting the situation or preventing disasters. For example the rebuilding after Sandy. This book gives you some possible companies that will benefit from changing global conditions such as global warming.

4.0 out of 5 stars Worth Reading 1 Sept. 2011
By Amazon Customer - Published on Amazon.com
Format: Paperback Verified Purchase
I thought the book was interesting. It is a pretty easy read, really intended for more beginner investors so if you want to stay away complicated graphs & formulas then this would be a book you would want to read. I've always been fascinated by apocalyptic events and I help people with their finances so maybe that is why I thought this was an interesting book. If you enjoy investing then give it a read.

1.0 out of 5 stars Fool me once your fault - fool me twice my fault. 1 Dec. 2013

Format: Paperback Verified Purchase
I think by and large this Journal Guide was misleading and because of this I will not order any promoted items in the future from what I consider a neutral site.
