All Roads Lead to China
An Investor Road Map to the World's Fastest Growing Economy 



Many in the west have refused to acknowledge that an economic war has been underway, one from which there will emerge winners and losers. In All Roads Lead to China, Jeffrey Friedland takes the position that the war is already over.and that the victor is China and the vanquished are the U.S. and Europe. Friedland believes that the U.S. and the euro zone will become by mid-century, at best, second tier economies. 

In All Roads Lead to China, Friedland makes the case that investors have everything to gain from China’s economic prosperity, and much to lose by ignoring it. He also makes a compelling argument that returns from investing in mature economies, including the United States and the euro zone, will not be as rewarding over the long-run, compared to returns from investing in China. 

Friedland explains that China is the most important story for our generation, and the generations to follow. He describes that as the United States and Europe are mired in their own financial problems, China will soon be the world’s largest economy and its growth over the next twenty to fifty years will outpace that of the rest of the world. 

the book describes the different ways to invest and numerous financial products that are available, including shares of companies, mutual funds and exchange traded funds. 

Savvy investors know they should include China in their portfolios, but few know how to proceed. All Roads Lead to China provides that road map for investors or anyone else who wish to have a better understanding of China and its potential.
