Stocks markets go up and down, but no matter what the economy is doing, people worldwide continue to drink, smoke, gamble, and fight. Why not invest in vice?

Vice Fund Manager, Dan Ahrens focuses on "sin stocks"- tobacco, alcohol, adult entertainment, gambling, and aerospace/defense, contending that even during an abysmal economy, people will continue to indulge in these goods and services.

In Investing in Vice , Ahrens explores all major aspects of the vice industry and provides traders and investors with:

o A brief history of each principal vice industry
o Strategies for building a profitable portfolio
o Charts of each industry's stock performance
o Instructions on how to invest in vice-pros and cons of full service brokers, managed portfolios, and mutual funds
o Top Picks-of the best companies, and top stock holdings
o Reasons why Socially Responsible Investing may not work

With its lighthearted tone and simple approach, Investing in Vice is the ultimate defense in these troubled economic times.
