Mark Tier, an Australian based in Hong Kong, started writing when he was 14—and hasn’t stopped since.
His first work, Understanding Inflation, was a bestseller in his native Australia in 1974. That was followed by The Nature of Market Cycles, How To Get A Second Passport, and The Winning Investment Habits of Warren Buffett & George Soros, and How to Make More Money By Sitting on Your Butt—and other contrarian conclusions from a lifetime in the markets.
Once labelled “the Eclectic Investor” for his wide range of interests (he has been a soldier, businessman, publisher, investment analyst, counsellor, coach, writer, investor, speaker, editor, foreign correspondent, and even co-founded a political party), he co-edited two science fiction anthologies which won a Prometheus Award in 2005, an analysis of Christianity, When God Speaks for Himself, and a political thriller, Trust Your Enemies.
His latest book, How to Spot the Next Starbucks, Whole Foods, Walmart, or McDonalds’s—BEFORE its Shares Explode, will be on sale on August 8th.
