Invest in Europe Now! : Why Europe's Markets Will Outperform the US in the Coming Years


Praise for Invest in Europe Now!

"For over thirty years, David has introduced many investors to global interdependence issues through his newsletter and his educational and enjoyable trips to Europe as well as the rest of the global investment scene. In this book, long overdue, David and Vincenzo guide both the novice and the experienced investor on the journey of careful investing in Europe. In this book, David and Vincenzo guide the fundamentals of economic competitiveness, currency volatility, and tax considerations. This book should be the first book for the investor truly interested in proper due diligence before the first dollar is spent."
John E. Silvia, Chief Economist, Wells Fargo

"David Kotok is that rarest of creatures on Wall Street: objective, creative, unemotional, intelligent, and curious. His kind visage appears too infrequently on business television, where he is a rare breath of sanity amongst the professional hucksters and charlatans. If Kotok says you should look closely at Europe as an investment option, well then, you best drop everything else and look more closely at Europe!"
Barry Ritholtz, author, Bailout Nation, and Creator/Writer, The Big Picture

"An excellent read and a must for investors. Political and economic climate changes are creating substantial global investment opportunities but also minefields. Kotok and Sciarretta clearly identify the forces that will shape investment returns in the years to come and provide tools and a strategic framework to help the investor navigate through the complex investment landscape."
Dr. William C. Dunkelberg, Professor of Economics and former dean, Fox School of Business, Temple University, and Chief Economist, National Federation of Independent Business

"Kotok and Sciarretta pose a profound challenge to the conventional wisdom, that says the dollar will remain the dominant reserve currency of the world. Whether or not the EU outperforms the U.S. economy as they suggest, the mere fact that credible observers are thinking about such possibilities represents a revolutionary, potentially destabilizing trend for the United States. Global investors must consider their arguments carefully."
Christopher Whalen, Cofounder, Institutional Risk Analytics

"Kotok and Sciarretta's volume provides a crucial view of the U.S.-EU competition for economic and financial preeminence in the post–credit crisis world. As the U.S. adopts more liberal democratic institutions, the EU's shift away from those same principles creates the potential for a crossing point in economic and financial preeminence. The volume is therefore a valuable starting point for viewing the dynamics of the potential shifts in global hegemony and investing accordingly."
Dr. Joseph R. Mason, Hermann Moyse, Jr./Louisiana Bankers Association Endowed Professor of Banking, Louisiana State University; Senior Fellow, The Wharton School; and Partner, Empiris LLC
