We are at a crossroads of immense proportions. Nationally, internationally, and globally, we areliving in a manner that is absolutely, unconditionally, irrevocably unsustainable. Our global economic stability is in jeopardy, our planet’s ecosystems are under attack, and our health is deteriorating. Huge changes are coming whether or not we want them, whether or not we are ready for them. How can we lead the charge to introduce innovations and solutions to meet the inevitable challenges of new kinds of economic forces? Damon Vickers believes that by anticipating social trends and detecting potentially profitable areas for investing, we might still be able to profit while supporting a sustainable future.
In The Day After the Dollar Crashes, Vickers presents a possible time line for the crash of the U.S. dollar and the subsequent collapse of global markets. He outlines the New World Order that may take shape over the next decade and the impact it could have on nations, businesses, and individuals. Perhaps more importantly, he tells how investors can weather the coming economic collapse and position themselves for the coming global transformation. By changing our expectations and taking action to get in alignment with reality, Vickers shows, we can steadily profit in our investments. He suggests both globally sustainable and socially responsible types of investments, including investing in currencies of countries that are backed by real assets like resources and technologies that expand our sustainable energy and food sources.The time for denial and waiting for someone else to fix everything is over. It is up to us, each and every one of us, to wake up and start to make more responsible choices as we enter a New World Order. This audio book will show us how.

I was sorely disappointed with this book. It is filled with self righteous "I" statements...the author seems to fancy himself an expert on just about everything. Most of the discussion is eat right, stay healthy, recycle, etc....all good advice, but not what I expected from this book. The investment strategy information is minimal and followed by statements that while an industry or fund may appear to be one of the sound investments for the future one cannot be certain without extensive research....then the author concludes with information on how to establish an account with his brokerage firm!! He downgrades the marketing industry and has then succeeded in getting me to buy a book which is one big advertisement...I feel duped!
If you believe that the environment our concern for the environment should take precedence over our concern for human life, then this book is for you. If you believe that turtles and trees should be given the same rights as humans, then this book is for you. If central government and the new world order is something that you look forward to, then you will thoroughly enjoy this book. Personally, I can't imagine what Glenn Beck was thinking about when he recommended this book. The author even alludes to pulling the plug on Granny in order to save on valuable resources. I thought I would receive valuable insight on how to handle the expected crash of the dollar. Something in the order of where to invest my funds. Instead, I was flooded with new age nonsense about the coming emerging consciousness of humans with the planet. I felt as if I were reading a Bruce Lipton book. I strongly recommend you don't waste your credits on this book and instead purchase ???How to Survive the End of The World As We Know it???.
I thought the evidence in this book wasn't well supported. There wasn't enough support material for the enviromental impact theories. I kept waiting for the evidence of his theories but he just kept stating the same things over and over and I stopped listening after 3 hours and never finished.
The author does a good job of identifying the reasons for financial breakdown of the American economic system. However, his proposed solutions are absolutely the most hair-brained and flatly terrifying ideas I have ever heard. He (Vickers) proposes a Central Government with one individual as its leader. This Central Government that would be controlled by a single individual would also run every aspect of our lives. This single individual wouldn’t do it for money or power, but for love…get real Mr. Vickers!
According to Vickers, we also need to institute a global currency with a central banking authority that will control all aspects of credit, currency and finance.
I was really disappointed with this book. The title has almost nothing to do with the book, but instead it was a platform for the authors views on a "new world order", why we need it and what it should look like. The author should rename the book to something like "The New World Order, why we need it and how to hasten it's coming" or "The end of patriotism, now!"
I did listen the the entire thing, hoping to get some solid useful information about the purported subject matter, but it's not there. Don't waste your money if you are looking for useful financial information.
I could not believe this book. He starts out with very good observations and then goes completely off the deep end. He goes on and on the need for a New World Order... I feel dirty for having bought this book and by buying the book, having supported this crazy lunatic. If the New World Order ever needs a spokesperson or propaganda material I think they will head straight to this author.... DON'T BUY THIS BOOK!!!
The very small section on what to prep for.
Nope - not enough on how to play the coming issues. But I guess that is why he plugs his business so you can go there for the info. Smart though.
Very Listenable Performer
Yeah if you want a heavy dose of tree hugging
No its pretty straight forward in that we need to get our ECO act together, which I can get behind, but I am just not all that Ra Ra about it.
From page one
I don't know how he kept a straight face reading this garbage.
Seeing if I can get my money back.
If you love the NWO you will love this book.
The Author does an excellent job laying out many of the reasons we are in the current mess. His solutions however leave a bad taste in your mouth and asking the question "You want to do what?". The solution is a CG (Central Government) on a global scale. After berating the incompetence of governments around the world, after pointing out their numerous short comings, their corruptions, their weakness's, he seriously suggests that the way to fix things is to add yet another centralized political body on top of the currently existing ones. Only this body will somehow be wiser than all the others.
It is beyond me how someone as intelligent as Damon Vickers can suggest that the best way to decentralize power is to centralize it.
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.
"Buy gold not this book."
Alas this is a very partisan and myopic, if not confused, audiobook. I was rather hoping to see a robust argument about the causes and solutions to our current economic woes. Instead I, like some others who have listen to this, have been presented with a Vickers' interpretation - in some parts ok entry level analysis - on the impeding amplification of our economic troubles. There are enough straw men arguments in this book to make your head spin. And the real rub of it all is that I can't work out Vickers' moral stand point: 'I'd like to buy the World a Coke' in one sentiment and then 'if it wasn't for those fat, lazy people on welfare...', in another. All in all, I would have preferred not to rate this book because I don't see its relevance or value - other than its cost to me. Thank God no trees were sacrificed in the production of its MP3 version. Don't forget, caveat emptor.
