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.

If you're looking for a book that will give you investment tactics for to hedge against the dollar...don't get this book. It rants about a whole bunch of nothingness that has nothing to do with the title...surviving.
There is a significant amount of information here and it is worth the read, however you really need to listen carefully. Vickers is very informative as to how we got to where we are. His solution, a Central Government, is unacceptable.
This is the same tired liberal propaganda with an act of balanced point of view.
There are so many wild unsubstatiated claims within the first half of the book, it became intolerable. Revisionist History 101...
The title is quite misleading. I was looking for practical advice for an everyday person to be prepared for the days, weeks, months after an economic collapse. He briefly mentions stuff I already knew. It's in chapter 6 if you want to just listen to that. The other 9 chapters are a bunch of ramblings about how we need to stop being jerks to one another and just go ahead and welcome in this new world order stuff instead of fighting against it. I listened to 90% of the book. I tried to get some meat out of it so I listened intently, but then lost most of my respect for the author when he started talking about how we need to be ready to accept the one new world leader that will rise up and take charge because he will only be doing it out of selfless love for all of mankind. Right.
I'm open minded about new age concepts but his opinions were a little over the top for me. If you're not a hardcore new ager, you'll definitely hate this book.
very slow and I listened to a tongue lashing on how I'm killing the ecology. honestly the author needs to read some opposing scientific viewpoints before browbeating the reader
I will never read, or listen to, this author again.
Repetitive and vague, utter waste of time.
Details would have been nice.
Complete disappointment. I don't want lofty, vague idealism; I want facts.
The author only has about four points. All of them are vague, idealistic and lack details on what to do about them. Don't waste your money or time! He says in 1,000 words what could be said in 10 words.
If you point out specific flaws in a book, audible will delete your review. But it's ok if you just say a book is "garbage."
This book ranks right at the top with the amount of detail and accuracy. It was laid out very well. Must read / or isten too.
It is very informative, but I wouldn't call this a book. It is all over the place from monetary policy, to the environment to the world government to how you should talk to your doctor to how to invest your money.
Pros: Informative. Non partisan approach to politics
Cons: Scattered. At the end, he throws a pitch about his investment group. That was a bit disappointing to me.
