The first major work on inflation investing in decades, “Inflation Investing — A Guide for the 2010s”, has just been released.
This three-volume, thoroughly researched book is now available on Amazon.com and is destined to become the standard reference in the field. “Inflation Investing” covers the entire range of information that an investor needs to know about this topic. It not only explains how inflation develops and why this will be happening soon, but details numerous specific investment possibilities that any investor can access. Many of these were not available until recently and are not covered in other books.
Inflation is the biggest threat — and opportunity — for investors today. Ironically, conservative investors are most at risk for major losses because inflation turns the rules of investing upside down. Knowing a little about it doesn’t help much either. “Inflation Investing” documents that many investments that the public thinks are inflation hedges will not offer the protection needed and how having these false friends in your portfolio can harm you.
Investing for inflation is also more than just buying some gold. While gold is an excellent inflation hedge, inflation portfolios need to be diversified just like all other portfolios. After all, would you buy just one stock in a bull market? “Inflation Investing” has extensive coverage of the four major inflation asset categories — precious metals, energy (oil, natural gas, coal, nuclear and renewable), agricultural commodities and farmland, and art, antiques, and collectibles. Added to this is material on currencies (and why the U.S. dollar, the British pound and the euro need to be avoided), industrial metals, and the only way to invest in bonds during inflation.
“Inflation Investing” is a rare combination of scholarly research and practical moneymaking suggestions. The author, Daryl Montgomery, is both a former academic and the organizer of the 3000 plus member New York Investing meetup — a group that provides unbiased stock market and economic education to independent investors. Montgomery is also a popular blogger and has published over 600 articles on finance and investing. Much of his work has appeared on RealeFinance.com and Realemedia.com (http://www.realefinance.com, http://www.realemedia.com), which maintain links to his books.
