There are great examples from history too, Germany's Weimar Republic, Argentina, Zimbabwe, etc. where spending got out of control, money inflation, hyperinflation, economic disaster. Then people would burn money for heat and use a whole box for a loaf of bread. There was even the example of buying a bottle of wine for dinner and the next day the bottle was worth more empty.
It was an interesting book and practical too. Some are simply just optomist or pessimist. When you see danger lurking ahead, and things getting thin, sticking your head in the sand does NOTHING to fix the problem. In fact, it makes you a sitting duck. Sometimes hard and wise decisions must be made, both individually and as a culture, to bring wisdom, truth, responsibility, and restraint back to a city, state, and country. Otherwise we have dug our own grave and are preparing to fall into it. It doesn't matter whether we are the United States of America or whoever - the verse that states, "Pride goes before destruction" (Prov. 16:18) still applies. I pray we come to our senses and realize our stupidity, greed, and waste. Personal responsibility is always a great habit. :)
The third chapter is unbelievable, as the historic events leading up to and during the depression are almost exactly as we see them coming forth today. The only things different are the names of the key players. It even talks about a national debt up in the trillions, something unheard of back when it was written.
The other thing about this book is that is amazingly readable for anyone lacking in the principles of economics, despite its delving into mostly economic matters. Buy it. Read it. You won't regret it.
