Publisher's Summary

When Dr. Stephen Leeb speaks, smart investors take heed. In his previous books, Dr. Leeb predicted the great bull market of the 1990s and the collapse of technology shares in the new millennium. Now, 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.

Clearly out of date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 This book is clearly out of date as of this review (April 2008).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.
