Editorial Reviews

From the Back Cover

America is hurtling toward socialism. What should free market capitalists do with their money?

Barack Obama is aggressively pushing the American economy toward socialism. Maybe he will succeed, maybe he won't. In the meantime, what should the rest of us do with our money? In this unique and timely book, financial adviser Jerry Bowyer combines critical analysis of Obama's economic policies with sound investment guidelines for free market capitalists. Under Obama, taxes will rise, energy will become more expensive, regulation will increase, corporate stocks will suffer, credit will remain tight, and national markets will stagnate. Bowyer explains why this is happening and offers helpful advice on how to profit under the new antigrowth regime—for as long as it lasts.

Great read and very timely.

Consequently, I don't share the author's enthusiastic optimism about our country's political and economic future.

Evidently they're not too proud to have Jerry Bowyer as their chief economist.

Jerry Bowyer characterizes the POTUS as a Fabian socialist, Stanley Kurtz calls Obama a hard-core Marxist, while George Weigel insists he's just a liberal political hack. Who is right? I believe Stanley's evidence is more convincing, and therefore more alarming. Consequently, I don't share the author's enthusiastic optimism about our country's political and economic future.

Other than Jerry's novel recommendation to invest in a targeted (but still -- "as of this writing" -- non-existent) residential/commercial REIT, I found that his other advice substantially mirrors bloggers like Tyler Durden and Peter Schiff -- with whom I happen to largely agree. So, for me, this book reiterates much of what I already know. Moreover, the author paints with a very broad brush, which is why I rated his effort to teach me "how to invest and thrive in an era of rampant socialism" as underperforms. On a more positive note however, Jerry's writing style is both accessible and interesting. No small achievement, given the nature of the topic.

Full disclosure, I have been on TV with Jerry over the years and while we agree on most things we don;t always agree on everything...However, this book is spot on and tells the true tale of where true Free Market Investors need to focus their attention right now. Socialism isn't all evil but the American version we are seeing now takes the worst of socialism without any of the benefit...Jerry clearly defines why the Free market is vital to the true growth of the global economy and even socialist countries like I live in, Estonia, strive to have the level of enterprise and trade that the US has...Unfortunately since the nanny state is a permanent fixture here, it never will. Unfortunately the situation is worse in the US...The Nanny state has taken over but there are no real benefits for the people...It's the worst of all worlds. Jerry clearly puts together the picture of what investors need to do and how to survive the train wreck that is being created by all of the socialist programs. Great read and very timely. 5 stars.

Jerry is at his best when he engages listeners on a variety of topics. I even listened to his religious show because he offers intelligent talk radio. This book is his second work of fiction (Joke--sort of) and it is a shame that he chose the title that he did. Actually, given the choices in talk radio, Jerry would be a welcome respite. I just wish he would look at things from more than one point of view: the profit making puritanical faith based economic model. Having said that,if you want an op-ed and one sided view of things, Jerry does back up what he says with facts and forces you to think if you are a little more centrist that the Fox business channel crowd. Google Jerry to see where he is radio hosting--it is worth it regardless of your politics. As far as the book goes, its worth it as long as you know what your getting!

3 of 5 people found the following review helpful By Fundamental wisdom over commonplace talking points on March 3, 2011
Format: Hardcover
The Free Market Capitalist's Survival Guide, by Jerry Bowyer, gets better the further you read. One reason is because the subtitle, How To Invest And Thrive In An Era Of Rampant Socialism, is engagingly addressed in the last 3 chapters. Getting the basics right is the toughest task for any economist and Bowyer sets up his thesis, surviving until rampant socialism has burned itself out (again), in the early chapters, with data from years of looking behind the commonplace assumptions to the real cause and effect. I have been pestering everyone I know in banking, finance, and old guy investors who survived the 1970's disasters from Nixon's wage and price controls and Carter's malaise, to draw parallels for me for what to do to weather Obama's shenanigans. Fundamental wisdom over commonplace talking points is seldom popular, especially when the radical socialists are in charge, but basics are always easier to understand especially from someone who has done his homework and is brave enough to present it well.
