Financial Armageddon?

I slept uneasily last evening after reading the latest thriller about the forthcoming collapse of the United States’ economy. Unfortunately, this book is NOT a fiction title.  If you believe the theories and analysis put forth in Aftershock : protect yourself and profit in the next global financial meltdown, the bursting of the stock, banking and real estate bubbles was only a precursor to the the final bubble – the dollar bubble. The authors propose that foreign countries will begin to lose faith in the strength of the US dollar due to the nation’s heavy debt load. They offer strategies to follow when the dollar’s value decreases and inflation sets in. Whether you accept their predictions or not, it makes for thought-provoking reading.
