Asia is now the world's #1 growth story. Farsighted investors will realize enormous profits by investing in companies that benefit from Asia's historic transformation. In The Silk Road to Riches, a team of world-class financial analysts and newsletter editors point you to the right companies, the right sectors, and the right strategies. You'll learn how to leverage Asia's accelerating integration into the world economy... profit from the pressure that Asia's growth is placing on commodities and resources... anticipate changing needs of Asian consumers in financial services, health and pharmaceuticals, communications, and many other industries. The authors offer powerful support for several provocative claims: that India, not China, is Asia's best investment destination; that the price of gold is poised to explode; and much more. They illuminate global economic changes that will decide the fate of the U.S. dollar as the world's reserve currency; and present an up-to-the-minute overview of crucial global security issues every investor must understand, no matter where they invest.

In Your Face exposes the new worldwide rebellion that's brewing against U.S. marketing. Renowned international marketing expert Johny K. Johansson explains why global customers increasingly view U.S. marketing as the first wave of a cultural assault by an arrogant, wasteful society of overfed, gas-guzzling, SUV-driving bullies. He shows why American brands are especially susceptible to attack and considers the Bush administration's disastrous repositioning of the United States. Most important, Johansson offers a new path for marketers, a path to sustainable profits, based on mutual respect, not domination.
