The New Reality of Wall Street : An Investor’s Survival Guide to Triple Waterfalls and Other Stock Market Perils

In The New Reality of Wall Street, Donald Coxe (a huge name in institutional investment circles) provides shaky investors with the reassuring knowledge and guidance they need to recoup recent investment losses, and weather a financial storm that is still far from over.


Wall Street and Silicon Valley got together in an undeclared partnership to wire the world, enrich themselves, and convince a whole new class of investors into trusting the partners with much of their life savings. It was a great deal for the partners, but a terrible deal for the investors. Never in the history of major stock markets were the rewards so skewed to insiders at the expense of outsiders.

The New Reality of Wall Street will tell you how it happened, why it happened, and what you need to do to rebuild your savings. As drab as the investment landscape may appear, it’s safer for investors than it has been for five years. You didn’t know how risky it was then, and you probably don’t know how safe it is now. There are no lush and easy pickings like the crops of the 1990s, but there are fewer poisonous mushrooms and fewer bears around the blueberries.

You have learned that good times in the stock market don’t last forever. You will learn that bad times don’t either.
