  • Investing under fire

    If you’re looking for a comprehensive guide to the current investment landscape, look no further than this collection of 29 essays by strategist and global market expert Ackerman. In this book, Ackerman covers a wide range of topics, from general stock market trends to niche investments like gold, oil, and biotech. He also offers insights into research and analysis tools, successful business models, and geopolitical risks.

    While some of the essays may be confusing and contradictory, there are plenty of gems to be found. For example, John Bogle’s summary of 50 years in the mutual fund industry is a must-read for anyone interested in investing. And Morning Star’s Brian Portnoy offers insightful analysis of mutual fund fees, concluding that paying more often leads to getting less.

    The real revelations in this book come in the last section, where Ackerman and his contributors offer sobering insights into the state of global security and the threat of nuclear terrorism. While some of the essays may already be outdated, Jules Kroll’s description of the holes in our security and Harvard professor Graham Allison’s warning about the danger of terrorists obtaining nuclear weapons are still relevant and important.

    Overall, this book is a valuable resource for professional and individual investors who want to stay informed about the current investment landscape. With contributions from some of the most respected voices in the industry, it’s a must-read for anyone looking to make informed investment decisions.
