The Coming Economic Collapse: How You Can Thrive When Oil Costs $200 a Barrel | [Dr. Stephen Leeb, Glen Strathy]

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.

    "Alarming"

    I definately think this book is "far end of spectrum doomsday", but the message transmits nonetheless. The future recession(s) will be increasingly difficult for America to withstand for reasons illustrated in "Collapse" and I think that regardless of this authors extremism, he is probably more right than wrong. This book is definately worth while.

    I love books on personal development and entrepreneurship. For entertainment, I prefer the military sci-fi genre.

    "Clearly out of date"

    Definately does not reflect current state of the world. This book is clearly out of date as of this review (April 2008). If you haven't read it yet, don't.
