From Brazilian farmlands to Colombian gold fields, from Chinese shopping malls to Indian hotels, from South African wine country to the boom/bust souks of Dubai, Chris Mayer’s around-the-world investing field trip explores the nooks and crannies for hidden investment opportunities.
World Right Side Up: Investing Across Six Continents packs big ideas to power your portfolio in the years ahead. Along the way, you’ll learn many fascinating tidbits about the world’s diverse markets.
For the first time since before the Industrial Revolution, the emerging markets now contribute as much to the global economy as their more well-developed peers.
