“A radical and challenging look at the future of the entire world economy, zooming in on specific investment recommendations. A tour de force.”

“No one can ignore this book’s central message: The global cultural, economic, military, and political hegemony of Europe and the U.S. is yielding to a new multipolar age in which entirely new countries will increasingly drive global, economic, and social trends. No one will be successful unless they recognize this new reality, which will reshape global industries. It’s all here in The Rise of the State. I call it an essential read and road map for real wealth building in the years to come.”

To earn profits in the coming decade, you must understand the two most powerful trends reshaping global markets: the growth of emerging economies and the accelerating influence of sovereign wealth funds. Both trends reflect the rising role of government and make geopolitics more important to investors than ever before.
In The Rise of the State, three leading investment advisors reveal the hidden story of growing state investment power and offer more than 70 specific, timely recommendations that flow from this enormous economic shift. They also illuminate trends ranging from the new rise of Asia to the massive migration of individuals into cities and identify resulting opportunities in areas ranging from energy to water, healthcare to education.
You’ll also find indispensable new insights into the growing impact of sovereign wealth funds, both within and outside the United States. The authors show how to ride alongside these funds, understand their goals and strategies, and profit from the companies and industries they’ve targeted.
