    From both an economic and monetary perspective, the United States is a house of cards; impressive on the outside, but a disaster waiting to happen beneath the surface. In a relatively short period of time, the country has gone from the world's largest creditor to its greatest debtor; the value of the dollar has declined; and manufacturing has given way to non-exportable services.

    Paul says: "Wrote late 2006 and predicted 08 and 09 VERY well"
    "1 of the Best Books on the Markets"
    Overall

    Before I read this book I was always frustrated at my lack of understanding the stock market. Especially after following the stock recommendations of the commentators and guests on all those cable financial TV. shows. Then I found and read Peter's book. He explained in layman's terms what Wall Street was all about. While market experts were telling me to buy stock, there real clients were selling stock. Peter explains why our phony US consumer base economy is headed for trouble. And more importantly, what we can do to escape the coming collapse. My only regret is not reading this book sooner!

    Who understood the risk inherent in the assumption of ever-rising real-estate prices, a risk compounded daily by the creation of those arcane, artificial securities loosely based on piles of doubtful mortgages? Michael Lewis turns the inquiry on its head to create a fresh, character-driven narrative brimming with indignation and dark humor, a fitting sequel to his number-one best-selling Liar’s Poker.

    Jill Pagano says: "Finally, I understand what happened!"
    "Awesome Book"
    Overall

    What a great book that adds such a valuable perspective to the crap that goes on, on Wall Street. Thanks Michael!
