THE GREEN BUBBLE

THE GREEN BUBBLE

FOR GREEN ENERGY TO BE TRULY SUSTAINABLE
IT MUST BE COMMERCIALLY SUSTAINABLE

Published by: LID Publishing  

The Green Bubble offers an analysis of the current financial bubble being created in the energy sector, by governments subsidizing renewable energy investment. He argues that these investments are not sustainable, and makes a case for investment in gas and, controversially, nuclear power.

Alongside the pressure to reduce greenhouse emissions, there is a challenge to find new, renewable energy sources. Many of the current ideas, Wimmer argues, are politically driven. The book also offers an engaging and intelligent analysis of the different energy issues that the world is facing, and how politics has led us in the wrong direction.

THE BOOK "WALL STREET" BY PER WIMMER RECEIVES 6 STARS (OUT OF 6) IN BOOK REVIEW BY THE DANISH FINANCIAL TIMES EQUIVALENT, BORSEN

A different and vibrant book where the young Danish investment expert and adventurer Per Wimmer guides readers into the international business community.

Wall Street in New York is the absolute center of international finance. The roaring engine that keeps the world economy afloat. Capitalism's high altar, where more than 200 billion dollars changing hands every hour around the clock - 365 days a year.

For more than ten years, the young Danish investment bank, adventurer and millionaire Per Wimmer daily juggled with dollar millions on Wall Street. While his clients became billionaires in the morning, others went bankrupt in the afternoon. IN WALL STREET Wimmer takes the reader into the holy of holies of the world's largest and most closed finance houses and presents the economic and psychological mechanisms that drive the Wall Street boys. And that ultimately crushes the global economy to atoms, the day the machine derailed.

Per Wimmer graduated from Harvard, worked for Goldman Sachs and now has his own investment bank in London. He is a true adventurer and is expected to become the first Dane in space in 2013.
