The economic crisis has placed the business cycle back in the spotlight, but as individual investors and financial professionals start the arduous task of portfolio building and rebuilding, the greatest danger they face is relying too much on the past for guidance when the future may look very different. No one can say for certain what our economic future will look like. What investors can do is prepare. The Era of Uncertainty provides a new way of thinking about investing in a dynamic, macro-driven world, examining the importance of macroeconomic perspectives in a global economy rife with instability. This book presents a framework for using big-picture investment strategies to profit from the interwoven inflationary and deflationary scenarios likely to evolve in the coming years. Written by FranÇois Trahan, former Chief Investment Strategist of Bear Stearns and one of the first strategists to warn about the housing bubble before it burst, and Katherine Krantz of Miracle Mile Advisors, The Era of Uncertainty addresses the likely causes and consequences of each possible scenario, offering investment strategies to profit from each potential outcome. Drawing on experiences derived from previous credit-driven deleveraging cycles and containing insights into the financial future, the book marks an important step for macroeconomics in the post-recession financial world.A practical resource for anyone who intends to succeed in today´s environment, The Era of Uncertainty shows what it will take to make it in such a dramatically altered market, and how to incorporate macro strategies into everyday investment endeavors in order to achieve lasting success, no matter what lies ahead.PLEASE NOTE: When you purchase this title, the accompanying reference material will be available in your My Library section along with the audio. 1.

Addressing the growing need for high dynamic range and reference-monitor accuracy in a broad range of studios, JBL has developed the M2 Master Reference Monitor: A Free-Standing, 2-Way System that can be placed in any environment to provide an exceptionally accurate monitoring experience. Leveraging a new generation of JBL high-output, ultra-low distortion transducers, the M2 provides in-room frequency response of 20 Hz to 40 kHz, and an extraordinary 123 dB maximum SPL to meet the demanding music, cinema and broadcast production requirements for impactful dynamic range. * System Format: 2-Way Floor Standing or Soffit Mountable* High Frequency Model: D2430K Dual Diaphragm Dual Voice Coil Compression Driver* Low Frequency Model: 2216Nd 15 in (381 mm) Differential Drive® Woofer* Crossover Frequency: 800 Hz* Frequency Range: 20 Hz - 40 kHzImage Control Wave Guide Dispersion: 120º H x 100º VSensitivity 1W/1m SPL: 92 dBContinuous/Peak SPL@ 1m: 117 dB /123 dB; 108 dB Peak SPL @ 8mThe System Requires: One Crown iTech 5000HD power amp for each speaker or oneiTech 4X3500HDB for two speakers, or BSS Soundweb London Processor with Crown Macro-Tech MA-5000i (One per speaker)Recommended Amplifi er Power: 1.200 Watts into 8 ohmsInput Connectors: Spring TerminalsEnclosure Construction: 25 mm (1 in) MDFFinish: Satin Black LacquerIncluded: Removable ABS Grille with Black UL Compliant FabricDimensions (W x H x D): 508 mm x 1256 mm x 355.6 mm (20 in x 49.5 in x 14 in)Weight: 58.5 kgs (129 lbs)Innovation ThroughMeticulous Attention to DetailThe core philosophy behind JBL´s long history of audio innovation is based onmeticulous attention to every detail of system design. If the wire needed for anew voice coil isn´t available, JBL develops it. If a tool or technology doesn´texist, JBL invents it. This uncompromising commitment to the goal drivesthe development of every new product and technology that bears the JBLlogo. In recent years, audio engineers have developed new work methods andhave migrated to new work environments. Responding to the call for greateraccuracy and dynamic range in this new breed of music and post productionwork spaces, JBL engineers developed the new M2 Master Reference Monitor.Breaking free of the conventional, the M2 incorporates numerous patentedinnovations to deliver unprecedented performance and a trulyremarkable listening experience. Conceived and purposebuilt for modern recording and post production, theM2 was created so you can exercise yourown meticulous attention to detailThe Solution: The M2 Master Reference MonitorAddressing the growing need for high dynamic range and reference-monitor accuracy in a broad range of studios,JBL has developed the M2 Master Reference Monitor: a free-standing, 2-way system that can be placed in anyenvironment to provide an exceptionally accurate monitoring experience. Leveraging a new generation of JBLhigh-output, ultra-low distortion transducers, the M2 provides in-room frequency response of 20 Hz to 40 kHz,and an extraordinary 123 dB maximum SPL to meet the demanding music, cinema and broadcast productionrequirements for impactful dynamic range.In a compact form-factor, the M2 integrates three key components that work in harmony to deliver unparalleledperformance. At the heart of the system, JBL´s patented D2 high frequency and 2216Nd low frequency transducersare the engines that make this possible. Using a revolutionary design, the D2 produces smooth, extended highfrequency response with ultra-low distortion whether listening at very high or subtle levels. Using patentedtechnology, the remarkable 2216Nd woofer offers deep bass extension and very low power compression,even at its full-rated output. In spite of the M2´s minimal footprint, its exceptional low frequency responseeliminates the need for a subwoofer. Unit price
