Book Description

Sept. 4 2009
As the world picks itself off the mat and begins to grow again, a bull market in all things Canadian is about to wash up on our shores. A wave of unprecedented prosperity is about to occur, one that will transform the fortunes of Canadian investors who understand how the world has dramatically shifted and why Canada will be the biggest beneficiary. High technology companies, banking, residential real estate and, of course, our much-maligned resource sector will all be front and centre in this rising wave of prosperity, driven not by America but by Asia.

Shell Shocked turns the conventional investment wisdom on its head by providing compelling evidence that buying all things Canadian is a savvy bet, not a foolhardy gamble. Best yet, the global economic collapse has offered Canadian investors a once-in-a-lifetime opportunity to prosper, while investing right here at home. Rich in detailed, fact-based analysis, Shell Shocked explains what to buy and when to buy it. The world has changed, and so has investing. Shell Shocked is your blueprint for investing success.

Written by Bay Street veteran John Stephenson, Shell Shocked pinpoints the links that have brought the world to the brink of economic collapse, and describes how Canadians stand to prosper after the crisis.

Product Description

From the Inside Flap

Shell Shocked explains why Canada will be the ultimate beneficiary of the global economic crisis and why buying all the Canada you can get makes sense. On just about every measure, Canada is ahead of the pack. We have the best fiscal situation of any G8 country. Our banking system, while not unblemished, has survived the meltdown and is in an ideal position to cherry-pick the cream of the crop globally. Canada's housing sector, while overvalued, never saw the excesses so prevalent in Great Britain and the United States. We have a national health care system, our government sector is strong and our reputation globally has been enhanced rather than diminished by this ordeal.

We've always been told that diversification outside of Canada made good investment sense. That Canada was just too small, too unproductive and too short on global champions to justify investing solely at home. But the world has changed. Canada is rising and so are the prospects for Canadian investors. Shell Shocked dispels the common wisdom with a bold claim-Canada is ground zero for investment success.

4.0 out of 5 stars A must read for Canadians and investors alike July 25 2011
John Stephenson puts in perspective how a Canadian economy will benefit the most in the North American market, since most of the resources that will eventually be used by a hungry china are located in Canada. This book is more relevant for those investors planning to profit right after the upcoming economic collapse. John does not specify when and how long is going to be the next monetary collapse, but we all know that it will come soon, and I am not talking about the 2007-2008 stock market crash, I am talking about the monetary bubble in which the US is in. But this is another story which is not thoroughly explained in this book.
If you want to make money on the upcoming commodity bull market, which is going to be fuelled by Chinese consumption, you have to buy this book, rethink your portfolio, and analyse some of the fact that John puts in his work.
Good luck with your investments, and remember... this is a lifetime opportunity, specially when we talk about precious metals.

It's a decent read for anyone interested in some different points of view. Nothing too ground breaking here there though.

5.0 out of 5 stars Shell Shocked Rocked! Oct. 5 2009
Well, I just finished reading Shell Shocked - and it rocked. I found that the book was very well written, informative, and the material flowed seamlessly from one paragraph to the next and one chapter to another. I really liked the personal stories that the author sprinkled throughout the book - it made it less "academic" and reinforced his worldly experiences. The author's personality did come through the book - an easy confidence and extensive knowledge base. I can't wait until "Shell Shocked 2" comes out!

By Jack W. Plunkett - Published on
Format:Hardcover|Verified Purchase
The author has deep expertise in Canadian investments. In addition, he has worked in consulting and investments in the U.S. and attended bizschool in France. So, he writes about his own country with a global perspective. If you are interested in Canadian business or investments, or you are interested in Canada's foremost industries, such oil sands, then you definitely want to read this book.
