If the twentieth century was the American century, then the twenty-first century belongs to China. Now the one and only Jim Rogers shows how any investor can get in on the ground floor of "the greatest economic boom since England's Industrial Revolution." In this indispensable new book, one of the world's most successful investors, Jim Rogers, brings his unerring investment acumen to bear on this huge and unruly land now being opened to the world and exploding in potential. Rogers didn't just wake up a Sinophile yesterday. He's been tracking the Chinese economy since he first went to China in 1984 in preparation for his round-the-world motorcycle trip and then again, later, when he saw Shanghai's newly reopened stock exchange (which looked like an OTB office). In the decades that followed--especially in recent years, with the easing of Communist party financial dictates--the facts speak for themselves: The Chinese economy's growth rate has averaged 9 percent since the start of the 1980s. China's savings rate is over 35 percent (in America, it's 2 percent). 40 percent of China's output goes to exports (so there's no crippling foreign debt). $60 billion a year in direct foreign investment, combined with a trade surplus, has brought Beijing's foreign currency reserves to over $1 trillion. China's fixed assets--ports, bridges, and roads--double every two and a half years. In short, if projections hold, China will surpass the United States as the world's largest economy in as little as twenty years. But the time to act is now. In A Bull in China, you'll learn which industries offer the newest and best opportunities, from power, energy, and agriculture to tourism, water, and infrastructure. In his trademark down-to-earth style, Rogers demystifies the state policies that are driving earnings and innovation, takes the intimidation factor out of the A-shares, B-shares, and ADRs of Chinese offerings, and encourages any reader to utilize his or her own expertise (for example, if you're a car mechanic, check out China's auto industry). A Bull in China also features fascinating profiles of "Red Chip" companies, such as Yantu Changyu, China's largest winemaker, which sells a "Healthy Liquor" line mixed with herbal medicines. Plus, if you want to export something to China yourself--or even buy land there--Rogers tells you the steps you need to take. No other book--and no other author--can better help you benefit from the new Chinese revolution. Jim Rogers shows you how to make the "amazing energy, potential, and entrepreneurial spirit of a billion people" work for you.

About Author

Born on October 19, 1942, Jim Rogers had his first job at age five, picking up bottles at baseball games. After growing up in Demopolis, Alabama, he won a scholarship to Yale. Upon graduation, he attended Balliol College at Oxford where he earned his first Guinness record as coxswain of the crew. After a stint in the army, he began work on Wall Street. He co-founded the Quantum Fund, a global investment partnership. During the 1970s, the portfolio gained 4,200 percent, while the S&P rose less than 47 percent. Rogers then decided to retire-at age thirty-seven-but he did not remain idle. Continuing to manage his own portfolio, Rogers served as a professor of finance at the Columbia University Graduate School of Business and as moderator of The Dreyfus Roundtable on WCBS and The Profit Motive on FNN. At the same time, he laid the groundwork for his lifelong dream, an around-the-world motorcycle trip: more than 100,000 miles across six continents, his second Guinness record. That journey became the subject of Rogers's first book, Investment Biker (1994). Rogers's Millennium Adventure 1999-2001, his third Guinness record, took him and his wife through 116 countries, through half of the world's 30 civil wars, and over 152,000 miles. His second book, Adventure Capitalist, chronicled that incredible journey. Now a contributor to Fox News and other news and print outlets, he has recently moved to Asia with his wife and daughter.
