When Markets Collide

It is not an easy read and could have been condensed into fewer pages. It is also unclear whether it is aimed at the general reader or at specialists… But even though When Markets Collide has imperfections, El-Erian’s insights are as valuable as ever. — Read the complete FT review

Synopsis

Never before have investors and policy makers been beset by so many conflicting messages about the economy and the markets. While most pundits dismiss the conflicts as “noise” in the system, Mohamed A. El-Erian, president and CEO of the $35 billion Harvard Endowment and incoming co-CEO and co-CIO of PIMCO, one of today’s most successful investment firms, avers that those messages signal deep, structural changes and realignments that are radically redefining the investment game.

Written by the man who Fortune magazine refers to as a “Global Guru,” When Markets Collide offers a cogent picture of the rapidly changing world financial system. A book that is sure to become an overnight investment classic, it gets you up to speed on the new economic and investing landscape and provides a detailed blueprint for capitalizing on the phenomenal opportunities now available in that new investment landscape, while minimizing the new and challenging set of risks.
