Publisher's Summary

"We all know we have seen the end of an era, and now we have courtside seats to watch the Endgame unfold. We are watching the end of Act I: The Debt Supercycle. Now we will get to see how Act II: The Endgame plays out."—John Mauldin & Jonathan Tepper (Chapter 1)

Hundreds of books have been written about the financial crisis that engulfed the world after Lehman Brothers went bankrupt. But what if the bigger financial crisis is ahead of us, not behind us? As John Mauldin and Jonathan Tepper deftly illustrate in this controversial audio book, the crisis was more than a half-century in the making. The Great Financial Crisis, however, was merely Act I. Act II has now begun.

The massive household deleveraging and historic shift of private debt onto government balance sheets now underway all over the world represents the end of a 60-year global Debt Supercycle. We have now entered the Endgame, a time when bankruptcies and defaults (disguised as "restructuring") will not be of households and companies but of governments. The stakes are now higher. The coming crises will offer policymakers few good choices and many bad ones. It will require extraordinary clarity and courage from leaders, courage that so far is largely completely lacking. Yet, despite the authors' dark forecast, the message in Endgame is not all gloom and doom. The book lays out positive steps governments can take to weather the worst of the stormy days ahead, minimize the inevitable pain and discomfort most of us can expect to experience, and chart a bold new course to sustained economic growth and prosperity. It also offers investors an abundance of useful analysis and expert advice on how to protect their assets during the worst of it and prosper from the many new opportunities that will emerge globally as they present themselves.

In Part 2, the authors take listeners on a country-by-country tour—including the United States, UK, European countries, and Japan—clearly explaining the problems each country faces, as well as the good and bad policy options open to each, and the investment pitfalls and opportunities likely to be found in each national economy.

Whether you call it the Great Recession, the Great Financial Crisis, or the Global Debt Crisis, what we are experiencing is unlike anything seen in 80 years. Now is not the time to succumb to panic and superstition. It is a time for courage and intelligent decision making informed by the brand of rational analysis and wisdom you'll find in Endgame.

    "John Mauldin has condensed the essence of America'"

    John Mauldin has condensed the essence of America's debt problem into laymen's terms in what is a very readable style. You don't have to be an economist (remember God created economists to make astrologers look respectable)to understand what is likely to happen to us all if we don't get busy and replace some of our socialist leaders in Washington. Maulding uses the analogy of avalanche simulation to see where all the tendrils of risk have created instability in our financial world. I would read this book before I went to bed tonight!! That's how important it is.

    "AMATEURISH"

    The authors attempt to string together material from books by others and fail to come up with a cohesive whole.

    I got the impression that they didn't fully understand what they were writing about. The frequent cliches, put downs, and repetitions drove me silly. The topic is obviously beyond them and they should leave it to the experts.

    As for the narrator, there is only one word to describe his performance - Disastrous!

    "A completely useless book"

    From the first sentence, the author reveals his abysmal ignorance of economics, banking and international finance. The book has nothing to contribute to an understanding of "the debt crisis" A total waste of a credit.
