A gripping tale of adventure, danger and humor, peppered with investment tips from a Wall Street legend The best-selling author of Investment Biker takes a fascinating journey through the world's economic situation in a convertible yellow Mercedes. This is the motivating story of entrepreneur Jim Rogers, dubbed qthe Indiana Jones of financeq by Time magazine, who made his fortune playing the stock market and then embarked on his lifelong dream adventure. Together with his fiancee, Paige Parker, he set out on a three-year drive around the world that would ultimately set the Guinness world record for the longest continuous car journey. Their trip winds its way through 116 countries - through blizzards, deserts, epidemics and war zones - to discover failing economies and the new boom countries not from dry and potentially flawed statistics, but by experiencing life itself. This is a gripping tale of travel and adventure; along the way they encounter danger, love and farce. It is also a highly readable account of world economies: you won't find a more enjoyable way to be introduced to the investment potential of Bolivia, or the cultural changes afoot in North Korea. Finally it is also an inward journey in which Rogers moves from the restless traveler to husband and father, hoping one day to introduce his daughter to his own passion for travel. JIM ROGERS entered the investment business in 1968 with $600 dollars in his pocket. By 1980, at 37 years of age, he had left Wall Street with enough money to satisfy a lifelong appetite for adventure.Mehta, Ajay and Aodiiti, 259 Melchers, Laurenz, 113 Mercedes-Benz Advanced Design, North America, 7 Mercedes-Benz dealerships, 217 Abu Dhabi, 198 Germany, ... 305 CancAon, 303a€“304 crossing the border, 308a€“309 declining oil reserves, 307a€“308 economic problems, 306a€“307 ... 109, 110 nomads, 113 postal service, 98 Ulan Bator, 110, 112, 113 Ulan-Ude, 108, 117 Victor, 109a€“110 yurts, 111, anbsp;...
