Contagion of Chaos,
Verified Purchase(What's this?)
This review is from: Contagion: The Financial Epidemic That is Sweeping the Global Economy... and How to Protect Yourself from It (Hardcover)
I had never read any of John Talbott's books before but was more than interested as he was dead on with his previous books, "The Coming Crash" in 2003 and "Sell Now: The End of the Housing Bubble" in 2006. He finished this book in the fall of 2008 but everything he has written about has happened so far in the last three months of 2008 and the first two months of 2009.
His accuracy is frightening because he paints such a gloomy picture of the next few years in America. He blames lobbyists and the government for much of the disaster but he also puts blame on every other Usual Suspect that has helped bring down the United States and global economies. This is a must-read book that is scary but necessary to read. I would hope that our congressmen, President, and every other person in America has a chance to read this. But I doubt if he will be taken as seriously as needed because of his book, "Obamanomics."
I hope he isn't completely accurate but I believe that he will be. And if he is, the next few years will be titled, "Contagion of Chaos."
