Big Picture Investing: How, When, and Why the Stock Market Moves: 14 Lectures (Portable Professor Series)

Typically, advice on investing comes in the form of tips regarding a particular stock or portfolio, but the stock market-like everything in the global community-is profoundly affected by large-scale events. In this remarkable series of lectures, best-selling author and business professor Peter Navarro shows how an awareness of macroeconomic forces is absolutely essential for the savvy investor. Navarro outlines the historical relationship between world events and the stock market, and outlines investment strategies designed to take advantage of the response to future events on the floors of the world's stock exchanges.
