The Great Crash Ahead

Strategies for a World Turned Upside Down

With incisive critical ana lysis and historical examples, The Great Crash Ahead lays bare the traditional assumptions of economics, outlining why the next financial crash and crisis is inevitable, and just around the corner— coming between mid-2012 and early 2015.

This necessary and illuminating book gives very clear strategies for prospering in the challenging decade ahead . . . a world turned upside down.
