Q& A with the Authors
- Who should read this book?
Remember the stock market crash and global financial crisis of 2008? That was just a sneak preview of the worldwide economic downturn that is ahead. How do we know that? Because we wrote the books that predicted not only the 2008 crisis, but the even larger global economic Aftershock that is still to come. Anyone interested in protecting themselves now and during the dangerous economic changes ahead should read The Aftershock Investor.
- Why have so many readers responded so positively to the first two editions of Aftershock? Aren't we having an economic recovery?
Sometimes when a storm is coming, some people notice it sooner than others. The first two Aftershock books have sounded an early warning to those who would listen. These books accurately predicted the fall of the real-estate bubble, the 2008 stock market crash, and our current economic problems, revealing that the so-called current "recovery" is no more than the temporary boost of massive government stimulus that will later make the coming crash all the worse. Most people will ignore the warning signs until it is too late, but for those lucky enough to see it coming, The Aftershock Investor will guide you through.
- What can readers learn from this book that they can't get anywhere else?
Because no other book is based on the correct and most comprehensive macroeconomic view of what is happening over time, The Aftershock Investor is the only book that can not only explain what is occurring and why, but also provides detailed advice and insights regarding what to do about it and when to do it. Unlike in previous Aftershock books that focused on why these changes are happening and what is coming next, The Aftershock Investor goes even further to offer in-depth chapters on exactly what you need to know to protect assets and grow investments. For example, when to exit stocks, what bonds are safer and when will they become less safe, how to make wise real estate decisions, why and how to buy gold, what to do about annuities, whole life insurance, retirement, and much more.
- Will this book really help readers do anything differently than they are doing right now?
Yes! The Aftershock Investor reveals an entirely new way of protecting assets and changing your investment strategies to match the changing economy, both now and in the future. The old ways of investing are over. Not only are we facing a falling multibubble economy due to decades of slowing US productivity growth, we now have a falling world bubble economy, as well. To survive and thrive in this evolving investment environment takes changing your thinking and changing your investment approach.
