The Little Book of Commodity Investing  

Your next, best investment opportunity isn't in stocks, bonds or real estate-it's in commodities, the basic raw materials of everyday life. Smart investors know that after a decade of decline, stocks aren't where the big money will be made. The winning bets of the future need to be where global growth is going, rather than where it's been.

A rapid re-ordering of the global economic pecking order is underway, transforming the lives of millions and setting the stage for a massive bull market in commodities. Global growth will be driven by the countries that went into the crisis of 2008/09 with their economies in shipshape-the countries that have the money and the people to grow. Asia, led by China, is now on a solid, upward trajectory. By 2020, the developing world is expected to be responsible for a staggering two-thirds of total global economic output.

As millions of people around the world join the ranks of the global middle class, they'll be snapping up consumer items such as appliances and cars and underpinning an enormous demand for commodities. The economic strides made by the developing world so far have been breathtaking, but they're only just beginning. And that's a good news story for commodities.
