Summary

Summary

In light of the colossal losses and amidst the resulting confusion that still permeates, it is time to rethink money management in the broadest of terms. Drastic changes need to be made and examining managers who actually made money during 2008 is a logical starting place.  It is striking that most of the money managers that prospered through the crisis were those that understood the broader macro environment and readjusted and realigned to a different environment, no longer relying on old and outdated models. The Invisible Hands provides investors and traders with the latest thinking from the best and the most successful key players in money management, highlighting the specific risk and return objectives of each, and then discusses the evolution of certain styles and beliefs in money management.  These top macro thinkers reveal their own approaches to markets, risk, and the broader complex world in which we live, as well as their advice as to how investors should be approaching money management.
