The book starts with as the title states, but then he drives the argument to a eco warrior stance. I do not know how he saves the dollar or the country by primarily an enviromental direction.
I mean to say in the book he states how China holds a lot of our debt and that is due to its productive base. Then in the same book he states to get away from any item that may hurt the enviroment. He then starts to speak about flash mobs and i dont even know what.
Mr. Vickers states he loves the USA, but also loves the New World Order. I am not sure how you unite those ideals, but he surely tries. He speaks of individual rights, but then speaks of collective mentalities.
I would have wished he would have either stayed on topic or would have wrote two books. One a purely economic look at the dollar and what would happen if it crashes. The second book could be for the person who wants to live on nuts and berries with your favorite cartoon animal.
Mr vickers rambles on about his Enviromental and moral beliefs instead of using the readers time as they wanted it used, in learning about the dollar and the possible dangers that the dollar may face in the future.
If you're looking for a book that will give you investment tactics for to hedge against the dollar...don't get this book. It rants about a whole bunch of nothingness that has nothing to do with the title...surviving.
There is a significant amount of information here and it is worth the read, however you really need to listen carefully. Vickers is very informative as to how we got to where we are. His solution, a Central Government, is unacceptable.
This is the same tired liberal propaganda with an act of balanced point of view.
There are so many wild unsubstatiated claims within the first half of the book, it became intolerable. Revisionist History 101...
I will never read, or listen to, this author again.
Repetitive and vague, utter waste of time.
Details would have been nice.
Complete disappointment. I don't want lofty, vague idealism; I want facts.
The author only has about four points. All of them are vague, idealistic and lack details on what to do about them. Don't waste your money or time! He says in 1,000 words what could be said in 10 words.
This book ranks right at the top with the amount of detail and accuracy. It was laid out very well. Must read / or isten too.
It is very informative, but I wouldn't call this a book. It is all over the place from monetary policy, to the environment to the world government to how you should talk to your doctor to how to invest your money.
Pros: Informative. Non partisan approach to politics
Cons: Scattered. At the end, he throws a pitch about his investment group. That was a bit disappointing to me.
Decent book for someone new to this subject. I am aware of most of the info provided, There are hundreds of books out there with most of this info in it.
Puts together a lot of undeniable facts and references, help you to finally put it all together from the economical and ecological pint of views. Explains the true on our current economical order, and why we desperately need to change our minds.
