Description:

History repeats itself, a reminder and mantra for post-Great Recession investors Markets Never Forget (But People Do) sets out to correct a major misconception: that the new investment era in which the market now finds itself is unlike anything we've ever seen before. Bestselling author Ken Fisher revisits the past to prove that history is simply repeating itself, that what is to come is no different to what has come before it. There's nothing "new" about the current economic period, as history has proved that there is always a resurgence in market activity following a recession. With the help of this book, smart investors can spot the trends and patterns that will enable them to thrive in the months and years to come. With the Great Recession technically over, investors are bracing themselves for the "New Normal," an investment period unlike any before with massive long-term unemployment and a stagnant economy, but this is not borne out by market history Pundits and media analysts have generated a mass hysteria about the so-called "new" investment era following the 2008 market crash, but the old rules still do apply A walk through the past shows that history does, indeed, repeat itself and that we can find patterns (and refuge) in historical cycles to see how best to prepare for the future Co-written by Ken Fisher, CEO of Fisher Investments, which has one of the largest client outreach programs in the country Every one of the Fisher's previous books have ranked on the Wall Street Journal and New York Times bestseller lists In this exciting new book, Fisher does the legwork for investors everywhere, identifying similarities and trends from past booms/bust cycles in order to guide them safely through to the other side.
