For years, investors, strategists, and policymakers worldwide have turned to one book to help them translate economic data into knowledge for intelligent decision-making: The Secrets of Economic Indicators. It's no wonder The Wall Street Journal called this book "...the real deal," saying it "miraculously breathes life into economic indicators and statistics." Now, Bernie Baumohl has thoroughly updated this classic best-seller to reflect the latest US and foreign economic indicators, and brand-new insights into what all of today's leading indicators mean. Baumohl introduces dozens of new, forward-looking economic markers, including those that monitor small business plans, freight traffic shifts, web searches, and even gambling. He also presents several real-time foreign indicators for anticipating swings in European and Asian economies. He explains what's happened to the global and domestic U.S. economy in recent years, showing how the financial crises impacted investments, strategy, and economic indicators. New graphics more clearly illuminate how key indicators impact interest rates, bond and stock prices, and currency values; and hundreds of websites containing US and global economic indicators have been updated. This classic book has long been considered an invaluable resource by professionals who need to understand the true meaning of the latest economic trends. With this new edition, Bernie Baumohl has made it even more useful.
