This book presents in simple easy-to-read way why inflation is such a big problem, particularly in the UK. It is reducing the standard of living of most people and redistributing wealth from savers to debtors.
Successive governments have used it as a tool to manage their debts. The book examines likely future inflation scenarios and the best ways to save and invest in those environments.
This book shows that most private investors are likely to perform 6% a year worse than the industry’s theoretical predictions of their returns. It looks in detail at reasons why investors underperform: poor skill, charges and survivorship bias. Monkey with a Pin encourages private investors to review their investing style and strategy to help them achieve better returns.
