Based on cutting-edge research by leading corporate critic Louis Lowenstein, The Investor’s Dilemma: How Mutual Funds Are Betraying Your Trust and What to Do About It reveals how highly overpaid fund sponsors really operate and walks you through the conflicts of interest found throughout the industry. Page by page, you’ll discover the real problems within the world of mutual funds and learn how to overcome them through a value-oriented approach to this market.

Baker & Taylor
A critical study of modern-day mutual funds assesses the financial rewards, opportunities, and pitfalls of investing in a large mutual fund, exposing a number of troubling problems within the industry, including the unreasonable fees and expenses charged to investors, conflicts of interest, and financial double-dealing, and looking at funds and fund types of actual value to investors.

"There is something rotten in the mutual fund industry." So begins this critique by Lowenstein (emeritus, finance and law, Columbia law School) of the funds into which many U.S. households have invested their savings/retirement funds. To counterbalance his analysis of funds characterized by misrepresentations and managers' conflicts of interest, he discusses value funds that are truly committed to their investors, and what to look for in picking a stock fund. The book is introduced by a former reporter for The Wall Street Journal, now an investment firm partner. Annotation ©2008 Book News, Inc., Portland, OR (
