  • The Coming Economic Collapse: How You Can Thrive When Oil Costs $200 a Barrel

    In The Coming Economic Collapse, Dr. Leeb shows that the U.S. economy is standing on the brink of the biggest crisis in history.

    As the fast-growing economies of China and India push global demand for oil beyond production capacity, Americans will experience a permanent energy shortfall far worse than the one in the 1970s. The result will be severe financial hardship for most people, and once-in-a-lifetime opportunities for investors to become incredibly rich.

    This is an urgent call-to-arms to avert an all-but-certain catastrophe and a survival kit for an era that offers us only two financial choices: poverty or wealth.

    Overall

    To say the least this was a very interesting audio but more than that, it should provoke all of us to take action in whatever small way we can as individuals. . The authors presented thoroughly researched material in a way that should make sense to any of use who are not professional economists. The end result was a balanced and compelling account of the impending oil crisis and how it can impact on all of us. As a listener I was left to wonder in amazement how governments can continue to virtually ignore a problem whose consequences are enormous. It suggests solutions that cannot and must not be ignored. Recent happenings on the economic scene only serve to underline the disastrous path our current political leadership is taking. To say the least it held my attention throughout

  • A Saint on Death Row: The Story of Dominique Green

    A Saint on Death Row will introduce you to a young man whose history, innate goodness, and final days you will never forget. It also shines a necessary light on America's racist and deeply flawed legal system. A Saint on Death Row is an absorbing, sobering, and deeply spiritual story that illuminates the moral imperatives too often ignored in the headlong quest for justice.

    Overall

    This book was a sad commentary on the justice system in the state of Texas. It’s quite sad and remarkable how the system seems to have such a significant bias against minorities. What is also quite shocking is how a country that serves as a beacon of hope for the oppressed and disadvantage of the world stills maintains the barbarism of capital punishment. I somehow get the feeling though that if the majority of Americans had the opportunity to speak directly to the issue while armed with the information that so well laid out in this book, it might be a different story. The author points out that one in eight individuals executed is quite probably innocent. Incredible! This book left me with a nagging question as to how some of those involved in the administration of justice, particularly in the state of Texas can sleep at night!

    China's breakneck industrialization is placing it on a collision course with the entire world. Tomorrow's China Wars will be fought over everything from decent jobs, livable wages, and leading-edge technologies to strategic resources such as oil, copper, and steel, even food, water, and air.

    Joe says: "Good Narration, Book Flawed"
    "An Eye Opener"
    Overall

    It's fascinating to hear government and industry leaders talk about the emerging China market and the business opportunities it reprsents. The fact of the matter is that, as this book points out, China's business practices, it's social, environmental, and human rights record constitute a significant threat to the civilized world. The fact that China is rapidly becoming the banker of choice for the US is really startling and ominous. An excellent book and one I hope gets the attention of policy makers in government.
