Adventure Capitalist

Wiley India Pvt. Limited, 12 sep. 2007 - 369 páginas
A gripping tale of adventure, danger and humor, peppered with investment tips from a Wall Street legend. The best-selling author of Investment Biker takes a fascinating journey through the world's economic situation in a convertible yellow Mercedes. This is the motivating story of entrepreneur Jim Rogers, dubbed the Indiana Jones of finance by Time magazine, together with his fiancee, Paige Parker, he set out on a three-year drive around the world that would ultimately set the Guinness world record for the longest continuous car journey. Their trip winds its way through 116 countries - through blizzards, deserts, epidemics and war zones - to discover failing economies and the new boom countries not from dry and potentially flawed statistics, but by experiencing life itself. It is also a highly readable account of world economies: you won't find a more enjoyable way to be introduced to the investment potential of Bolivia, or the cultural changes afoot in North Korea. It is also an inward journey in which Rogers moves from the restless traveler to husband and father, hoping one day to introduce his daughter to his own passion for travel. · A Yellow Mercedes · Young Turks · The Coming Catastrophe of Central Asia · The Best Capitalists Are in Communist China · A New Asian Crisis: A Shortage of Girls · Digital Mongolia · The Wedding · Into Africa · My Broker in Ghana · Whirling Dervishes · Arabian Nights part three: 2001· Sixty Million of Us Wash Away Our Sins · The Road from Mandalay · Playing Detective in La Paz · My Father s Grave · Home Again

Dated at this point, but a worthwhile read if one is interested in how badly dysfunctional the world we live in is. Rogers is a surprisingly decent writer. Seems like a decent fellow also. Leer reseña completa

A bit of hyperbole in being the "only person ever to..." in some places, but very good. I wished he had focused a bit more on some places. Very illuminating and intriguing last chapter about the US and Greenspan. Leer reseña completa
