The actions of politicians, regulators, and economic policy makers have an enormous impact on the financial markets.

To determine "hot" sectors, Catalano provides a framework for analyzing government activity, the economy, and market activity. Through proper interpretation of these events, you'll learn how to outperform the markets, while mitigating downside risk.
