The new paradigm for investing and building wealth in the twenty-first century. The Future for Investors reveals new strategies that take advantage of the dramatic changes and opportunities that will appear in world markets.

Jeremy Siegel, one of the world’s top investing experts, has taken a long, hard, and in-depth look at the market and the stocks that investors should acquire to build long-term wealth. His surprising finding is that the new technologies, expanding industries, and fast-growing countries that stockholders relentlessly seek in the market often lead to poor returns. In fact, growth itself can be an investment trap, luring investors into overpriced stocks and overly competitive industries.

The Future for Investors shatters conventional wisdom and provides a framework for picking stocks that will be long-term winners. While technological innovation spurs economic growth, it has not been kind to investors. Instead, companies that have marketed tried-and-true products for decades in slow-growth or even declining industries have superior returns to firms that develop “the bold and the new.” Industry sectors many regard as dinosaurs—railroads and oil companies, for example—have actually beat the market.

The faster the world changes, the more important it is for investors to heed the lessons of the past and find the tried-and-true companies that can help you beat the market and prosper in the years ahead.

    " He really pounds the point again and again and again. Seems like a pretty good point. A little contradictory at times, as all economics seem to be, but he answered many questions that I had about investing. "

    " Perfect companion to Jim Cramer's Real Money. Whereas Cramer touts a "growth" approach to evaluating stocks, Siegle espouses more of a "value" approach. I believe you have to read these two together to get a complete picture. "

    " One line summary: Invest in dividend paying stocks. They win. "

  • 3 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 5 Christian | 11/1/2008

    " Focus on large cap stocks that consistently outperform expectations. Think industry leaders in unsexy industries that have earnings and dividends. Cigarettes, oil, consumer staples. Unfortunately, there is an element of looking back and picking winners. "

  • 5 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 5 Eric | 9/3/2008

    " If you want to understand the ins and outs of the stock market, including what to expect in the future, read this. "

    " This is a great investment book that makes you feel smart reading it. A revised edition comes out every few years. Beginning investors make feel ignorant at times reading it, but that's what this book is for!! "

  • 5 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 5 Randy | 6/15/2007

    " Great book, it really helped me to focus on investing and not on picking stocks. Great detail about why stocks are good, and diversification. At the end of the book you are wondering which specific investments, his next book covers that. "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Gelena | 6/1/2007

    " This is a practical guide to investing... a handbook essentially that offers timeless investing advice. "
