WILEY
A practical guide to preparing for the next phase of the financial meltdown

From the authors who were the first to predict Phase I of our current economic downturn-in their landmark 2006 book, America's Bubble Economy-comes their insightful sequel discussing their predictions for the next phase of the Bubble Economy.

It may seem like the worst has come and gone, but it hasn't. With their proven track record of accurate predictions-which most financial professionals and economists missed-the authors explain how and why the next phase of the financial meltdown is about to hit. Things are not going back to how they were before. Instead, we are moving through uncharted territory, with new challenges and opportunities that few people can anticipate. Written in a straightforward and accessible style, Aftershock shows readers how to seek safety and profits in these dynamic economic conditions.

  • Discusses how to protect assets, businesses, and jobs before and during the second wave of financial meltdown
  • Provides clear and accurate advice on how to profit from the collapsing bubbles
  • Offer focused guidance regarding real estate, which will continue to be a pressing concern for many

The authors' first book was chosen by Kiplinger's as one of the 30 Best Business Books of 2006, and its accuracy has been hailed by Paul Farrell of Dow Jones MarketWatch when he said "America's Bubble Economy's Predictions, though ignored, were accurate." Don't miss out on these time tested author's proven advice for how to mange your money during the coming financial meltdown.

"Aftershock warns of a very different economic future from what most people think. The full impact of the recent bubble pop will create far more problems than we have now, especially for the dollar, and will push home prices and stocks even lower. Unlikemost books that try to explain our economic troubles, Aftershock goes beyond the outdated notion of "market cycles" to help readers clearly recognize and quickly respond to the rapidly evolving economy. Things are not going back to how they were before. Instead, we are moving through uncharted territory, with new challenges and opportunities few people anticipate. Aftershock shows readers how to seek safety and profits in these evolving economic conditions. Specifically, the book will: Show readers how to protect assets, businesses, and jobs before and during the coming second wave of the financial meltdown Provide clear and accurate advice on how to profit from the collapsing bubbles Offer focused guidance regarding real estate, which will continue to be a pressing concern for many readers "--

Alarmist and way off track in its predictions. Of the nearly dozen books I've read on the Great Recession, which has become a big interest, I have increasingly been evaluating my reads based on the accuracy of predictions. This one and another by "gold will be $5000 in 2015" Peter Schiff have been the farthest off track. Just as the best books I've read had their errors, I do share a couple concerns (ex. US overall debt when rates do go up) with the authors, overall their predictions 5 years later have proven to be ridiculously far off.

Example - 2015 initial inflation rate was listed as 0.1% but the authors projected a minimum 10% by now.

The other similarity to Schiff's book was that they are selling something (services in this book, gold in Schiff's book). The more academic and investigative (versus accusative) books are much better reads than this dramatically flawed book.

Ha! Is this even a real book? Don't waste your time -- like I did.

The authors' theory hinges on higher interest rates in the US due to inflation being driven by money printing from Quantitative Easing. However money flows to its highest rate of return, so the QE money flowed to Southeast Asia and created inflation there, not in the US. The Japanese, leading the G20, attempted to induce inflation in spring 2013 and instantly tanked their stock market! They had to back off and are stuck with a deflationary spiral. The book does not apply to Canada and our bonds and economy are doing fine compared to the US and EU.
