Jim is a visionary entrepreneur with a flair for identifying emerging global trends. Most notably and very publically, he predicted the credit crunch of 2007-08 in a book entitled “Wake Up! Survive and Prosper in the Coming Economic Turmoil”. The book cited catalysts for the impending crisis including unsustainable levels of consumer debt in the western world, a U.S. housing crash, derivative financial instruments and governmental fiscal mismanagement – the rest is history! Jim followed this with “The Top 10 Investments for the Next 10 Years” (2008) and then “Top Ten Investments to Beat the Crunch!” (2009).
