ICO Research Made Easy: 17 Ways to Find the Best ICO Data

Is the ICO you're considering a scam? How would you know? Will the company you are researching be around two months after the launch? Or will the team have cashed out and moved on? How can you be sure which ICO to invest in?

At TruDex, we believe the answer to these questions lies in arming the investor with knowledge. But to know about an ICO, one must research exhaustively by reading the white paper, an often lengthy and highly technical document. They must also read the website, study the team behind the project, and evaluate the buzz level. Who has the time?

We have the time and it's what we do. That's why we created "ICO Research Made Easy", so our readers could gain an edge over the common investor and learn research methods that help filter out the good ICOs from the bad.

Arm yourself with knowledge before investing in an ICO! Join us at to learn more.

Infrastructure and Economic Growth in Asia (Economic Studies in Inequality, Social Exclusion and Well-Being)

Public spending on infrastructure plays an important role in promoting economic growth and poverty alleviation. Empirical studies unequivocally show that under-investment in infrastructure limit economic growth. At the same time, numerous other studies have shown that investment in infrastructure can be a highly effective tool in fighting poverty reduction1. In that context, the financing of infrastructure has been a critical element of most economic growth and poverty reduction strategies in developing countries, since the start of this millennium. This book provides a comparative analysis of the aggregate and sectoral implications of higher spending on infrastructure in three very different Asian countries: China, Pakistan, and the Philippines. Particular attention is paid to the role of alternative financing mechanisms for increasing public infrastructure investment, namely distortionary and non-distortionary means of financing. The book will be of interest to scholars and policy-makers concerned with economic growth in developing countries.
