    "The New Game" I am a real estate developer, and thought I knew a bit about my business. Doug Wolkon's book opened my eyes to a new way of looking at investing in real property. Anyone with an interest in retiring well on stable, dependable long-term income should read the strategies in The New Game. The sooner the better.

    "The First Shot Of The Revolution" As the old saying goes, "If it ain't broke, don't fix it." Well it, being our economy, appears to be breaking and Doug Wolkon is making an attempt to help us fix it. In this day and age, it feels as though, the invisible hand of Adam Smith is giving the bulk of us the collective finger. Current investment vehicles no longer delivering on the promises they had made. Wage gaps increasing exponentially, a market lacking in stability, the rising tide no longer raising all ships (just the yachts) and the weakening of the dollar. In "The New Game", Doug Wolkon takes us on a journey of discovery. Wolkon has chiseled out a new type of investment strategy that could help America economically right itself. By merging his knowledge of property management, vertical integration, economic theory and renewable resources, Wolkon has produced a new type of investment vehicle, one that can produce a win-win situation for all those... More > involved. This new vehicle, with its embracing of renewable resources, could be the driving force behind America's next great economic boom. Don't get left behind holding the bag on this one. Wolkon has shown us the future, now what will we do with it?< Less

    "The New Game" As a former business colleague, I heard Mr. Wolkon had been working on a new business treatise for some time, and expected to read a progressive ideology that expounded on his years of Private Equity Fund experience. The result was far more remarkable. Mr. Wolkon has drawn from his basic understanding of real estate fundamentals in order to authoritatively speak on the potential confluence of real estate and investment principals that provide long term solutions to the tenant-landlord relationship without sacrificing that which Private Equity Funds covet most dearly, profitability! His critical and poignant assessment of current fund managers could not come at a more critical time in the business cycle. Many of those fund managers illuminated the virtues of their algorithmic investment methods without truly appreciating the fundamental real estate principals that exist between tenant and landlord, rents and expenses, and debtor and lender. Mr. Wolkon brings... More > those ideologies to the forefront of his investment strategy, the FREE Formula. It is refreshing that Mr. Wolkon has introduced a long term investment platform when so many new investment strategists focus on statistical analysis within a short-term vacuum. This long term plan will allow the typical real estate investor to bob and weave through emerging trends, such as the New Game's focus on alternative energy sources and its effects on real estate. In the end, Mr. Wolkon has found a new approach to the most important economic goal, the wealth effect of long term compounded returns.< Less

    "The Free Formula" Doug Wolkon has formulated a new way to do business in the 21st century by reverting back to the ideals of capitalism. If we can see the Free Formula take hold in todays society it can lead to a best of breed in all catagories and make each of our daily lives that much better. We need this idea to take hold and Wolkon has established the spark.

    "The New Game" Many books, and individuals for that matter, merely complain about the disparities and inefficiencies in the current system without offering a viable alternative. The New Game is different in that it doesn't merely point out and whine about the woes of the system, it offers a better solution in its FREE Formula. This book makes you acutely aware of how the current system is based on short-term results that, over time, result in inefficiencies and unecessary instability (boom/bust cycles). Doug Wolkon presents a new way of thinking that creates a symbiotic relationship between landlord, tenant, and investor, while creating real long-term value. I particularly like that he incorporates renewable energy into his model and explains how our reliablity on fossil fuels will inevitably have to end. This book is the essence of forward-thinking - definitly a must read.
