Author, Andrew Sheldon

Global Mining Investing is a reference eBook to teach investors how to think and act as investors with a underlying theme of managing risk. The book touches on a huge amount of content which heavily relies on knowledge that can only be obtained through experience...The text was engaging, as I knew the valuable outcome was to be a better thinker and investor.

While some books (such as Coulson’s An Insider’s Guide to the Mining Sector) focus on one particular commodity this book (Global Mining Investing) attempts (and does well) to cover all types of mining and commodities.

AUD going upwards from here

This economist is forecasting a fall in the $A below 0.90c. I cannot for the life of me see this happening in the context of the current market. I'm all for global cooling; but I don't see 'hell freezing over'. Basically the outlook for Australia is very good. Why?
1. The global economy is entering the 2nd stage of a super-cycle after debt levels ran up to historic highs.
2. The debt crisis will disappear and we will have a consumption spurge by these emerging markets, once confidence is restored. This will see debt levels balloon in those countries which have low debt levels. i.e. China, etc. So this will bring about a re-balancing
3. There will be drastic changes in the way Western business operates. They will be forced to move offshore, or drop their high-cost structures with head offices and outsource to households. High margin businesses and senior executives will stay in the office, others will go to cubicles in the suburbs, if not work from home. Why? Because there is a disparity in wage-productivity which will need to be closed, because the West will not be able to afford their welfare states. 
What will see the AUD hold this 98c level is:
1. The very positive outlook for its commodities
2. The very favourable exposure to iron ore, coal and oil & gas
3. The resource rent - it will mean more money stays in Australia; less dividend outflow; but it will be wastefully spent by government. Better waste or opportunity cost than dividends you might argue....assuming Gillard did us no harm on the sovereign risk ratings. Truth be told, she made it better because she showed that the developing world was worse than the West, i.e. She allowed them to drop their ball by lowering the bar on sovereign risk. Yes, blame Gillard for the global rise in taxation/expropriation - she sanctioned it first. She changed the trend.

Japan Foreclosed Property 2015-2016 - Buy this 5th edition report!

Over the years, this ebook has been enhanced with additional research to offer a comprehensive appraisal of the Japanese foreclosed property market, as well as offering economic and industry analysis. The author travels to Japan regularly to keep abreast of the local market conditions, and has purchased several foreclosed properties, as well as bidding on others. Japan is one of the few markets offering high-yielding property investment opportunities. Contrary to the 'rural depopulation' scepticism, the urban centres are growing, and they have always been a magnet for expatriates in Asia. Japan is a place where expats, investors (big or small) can make highly profitable real estate investments. Japan is a large market, with a plethora of cheap properties up for tender by the courts. Few other Western nations offer such cheap property so close to major infrastructure. Japan is unique in this respect, and it offers such a different life experience, which also makes it special. There is a plethora of property is depopulating rural areas, however there are fortnightly tenders offering plenty of property in Japan's cities as well. I bought a dormitory 1hr from Tokyo for just $US30,000.
You can view foreclosed properties listed for as little as $US10,000 in Japan thanks to depopulation and a culture that is geared towards working for the state. I bought foreclosed properties in Japan and now I reveal all in our expanded 350+page report. The information you need to know, strategies to apply, where to get help, and the tools to use. We even help you avoid the tsunami and nuclear risks since I was a geologist/mining finance analyst in a past life. Check out the "feedback" in our blog for stories of success by customers of our previous reports.
