"This is the only person I have heard who seems to have the total picture and the guts or the insanity to actually say it out loud."—Glenn Beck
"This book is a MUST READ for everyone—especially those who still believe Big Government can solve all our debt problems, forever postpon the day of reckoning, and grow even bigger in the years ahead!" —Martin D. Weiss, New York Times bestselling author
"This powerful book tears away the illusions generated by politicians, media, and the financial industry in their efforts to maintain the status quo. So many years ago, Damon and I felt this would end badly, but we never thought it would get to this extreme. He puts into words what too many people don't want to think about or prepare for. The Day After the Dollar Crashes is a must for anyone who wants to survive and prosper in today's unstable economy."—David Tice, President, Tice Capital LLC
"Damon Vickers wants you prepared for an unpredictable future. Are you? If not, time to wake up."—Michael W. Covel, Bestselling Author of Trend Following and The Complete Turtle Trader
"The Day After the Dollar Crashes is Vickers at his best. He lays out the facts in his characteristically straightforward, no-nonsense style. He develops his thesis in compelling, short, to-the-point chapters—and he has plenty of concrete suggestions for personal survival—as well as a plan for how we might be able to turn it all around and create a new and sustainable world society."—Ed Seykota
"Though we differ on solutions, Vickers' well argued financial warnings are miles ahead of the 'everything is fine' crowd."—Robert Prechter, Elliott Wave International--This text refers to the Hardcover edition.
From the Inside Flap
We are at a crossroads ofimmense proportions. Nationally,internationally, and globally, we are living in a manner that is absolutely, unconditionally, irrevocably unsustainable. Our global economic stability is in jeopardy, our planet's ecosystems are under attack, and our health is deteriorating. Huge changes are coming whether or not we want them, whether or not we are ready for them. How can we lead the charge to introduce innovations and solutions to meet the inevitable challenges of new kinds of economic forces? Damon Vickers believes that by anticipating social trends and detecting potentially profitable areasfor investing, we might still be able to profit whilesupporting a sustainable future.
In The Day After the Dollar Crashes, Vickers presents a possible time line for the crash of the U.S. dollar and the subsequent collapse of global markets. He outlines the New World Order that may take shape over the next decade and the impact it could have on nations, businesses, and individuals. Perhaps more importantly, he tells how investors can weather the coming economic collapse and position themselves for the coming global transformation. By changing our expectations and taking action to get in alignment with reality, Vickers shows, we can steadily profit in our investments. He suggests both globally sustainable and socially responsible types of investments, including investing in currencies of countries that are backed by real assets like resources and technologies that expand our sustainable energy and food sources.
The time for denial and waiting for someone else to fix everything is over. It is up to us, each and every one of us, to wake up and start to make more responsible choices as we enter a New World Order. This book will show us how.--This text refers to the Hardcover edition.

I found the book to be virtually worthless in helping me to understand the signs leading up to a crash as well as the potential aftermath. Real, useful suggestions for preparations would have been far more useful than the Buddhist evangelism...
The book was so bad, I skimmed the latter portions of it and then went so far as to delete it completely from my Kindle account.
Author's solutions and recommendations is some New World Order government who is going "fix" the whole world, environmental issues, fiscal and governments and these "new" leaders not be subject to graft, corruption, in fighting, and the like. (fairy tale-or late night wishful drinking)
Wow!! What a huge disappointment!!
It is a leftist guide to happy, sustainable living with a buddhist bent. He states that we should start building our own heaven here on earth today. I applaud the intent and hope that he accomplishes just that in his own family and daily living.
It is also a smattering of recommendations to supposed prospective new world central government leaders as to what that government should look like. The book is rife with problems. It is peculiarly contradictory on many counts. For example, according to the book, national governments are one major world problem, therefore they must be subservient to the larger world central government. This central government would be entrusted with reducing the ever expanding power seen in national governments. The obvious problem with this is that any power that is capable of limiting national government power is capable of itself growing ever larger and more oppressive. Though national governments cannot be trusted, somehow a one world government would be altruistic and could be inherently good and self-limiting? I say that just doesn't make sense.
How about this one: he disparages sprawl and our over-use of oil, yet lives in a rural area 40 miles from his work. He believes we should develop more concentrated living in urban areas, but wishes that we could all own land that we could farm and then shares a strange dream in which we run gaily through an apricot orchard picking our own fruit instead of visiting a supermarket. I venture that if we all had a quarter acre for growing our own food, the sprawl would be even more than it is today.
I do agree with the premise that America's debt driven economy, monetary, and fiscal government policy is unsustainable in its current form. What the results of a restructuring are, I don't know, but it does not have to be a one world government or a singular currency. Seems to me that Europe has some stories to tell on that count.
Really, the lack of developed intellectual content in this book is reason enough to avoid picking it up, whether you agree, disagree, or are indifferent to the establishment of a new world order or care what that may someday look like. If you really want to know what to do should the dollar collapse, you won't find it much here.
