If you earn, and have most of your assets, in Saudi Riyals, Bahraini Dinars and other GCC currencies, your financial future depends on the fate of the US $, and the US economy. My view on the US economy: it has serious problems.

If I�m right, future events can hurt all of us financially but will also provide tremendous opportunities to make (or grow) fortunes.

During 1995-2001, I lived in Dubai, and traveled extensively all over the Middle East. I worked for a large company whose shareholders included the YBA Kanoo Group, the former Deputy Governor of the Saudi Arabia Monetary Authority (SAMA), and prominent businessmen in the GCC.

I was the Director of Investments, and also responsible for Strategy and Planning. I am a graduate of the London School of Economics, and a Canadian Certified General Accountant (CGA).

I then returned to Canada and have recently started writing two free newsletters being currently distributed to 70,000 residents of Dubai, with eventual circulation throughout the Middle East, bringing investors� information about investment opportunities in Canada.

Canada is the second largest country in the world by area, and was just voted by the United Nations as the 4th best country in the world to live in. It has a vibrant economy, with budget and trade surpluses. Investing here allows you to hedge against the US $.

Canada is one of the top five producers of most commodities (gold, silver, copper, nickel, etc.) in the world and is the 8th largest total oil producer in the world (at 3.11 million barrels a day). With a large number of public companies in these sectors, in a well regulated market, Canada is a natural choice for investors looking to diversify their portfolio.
