The housing bubble has popped, toppling banks and sending shockwaves of stock market misery around the world. It may seem like the worst is over. It's not. This book shows you what's still to come, and how to ride the crest instead of being sucked under. Learn when, why, and how the global bubble will burst Understand the repercussions that will reach into your accounts Get up to date on the data, with expert analysis and insight Start protecting yourself now with a few smart investment moves The stock market, real estate, consumer spending, private debt, dollar, and government debt bubbles will burst, driving up unemployment, devaluing the dollar, and causing deep global recession. 'Aftershock' helps you fortify your assets before the wave so you can enjoy clear skies after the storm. Despite all-time highs in the stock market and a widening narrative that 'the economy is improving,' a critical analysis of the current situation leads to a far more disturbing conclusion. The same authors that correctly predicted the financial crisis of 2008 and 2009 and foresaw the playbook that government leaders and the Federal Reserve would use to re-inflate asset bubbles, have laid out their vision of how the economic house of cards will crumble. This fully updated fourth edition of 'Aftershock: Protect Yourself and Profit in the Next Global Financial Meltdown' provides readers with an insightful analysis of the economic drivers that have created the illusion of a recovery and a false sense of security among investors. The authors have correctly predicted the path of the economy since before the global financial crisis and now they see things ending badly in the very near future. Are you prepared? 'Aftershock, Fourth Edition' is your must-have investment guide for understanding what's really happening in the global economy and how to protect yourself--and even profit--in the turbulent times ahead. THIS 'RECOVERY' IS 100% FAKE From the bestselling authors who predicted the 2008-2009 financial crisis comes their next wakeup call to Wall Street and Main Street investors: Prepare now for the coming Aftershock because this time not even massive government intervention will be able to stop it. Don't let the all-time highs in the stock markets and 'happy talk' from the financial cheerleaders fool you. This 'recovery' is more fairytale than fact, created almost entirely by massive money printing and massive debt. While most people will ignore the warning signs, for wise investors who prepare now there's still time to protect yourself before it's too late. This fourth edition of 'Aftershock' is fully updated with new analysis, insights, and advice about how to see and prepare for the multibubble pop and global mega-recession ahead, including: How to see the many vulnerable bubbles now holding up the fragile U.S. economy, temporarily supported by massive government stimulus that cannot last What to expect here and around the globe when these huge bubbles begin to pop How to prepare now for protection--and even profit--in the lead up to and during the coming Aftershock From the reviews of the critically acclaimed 'First Edition' 'Their scenario is dark, and their strategies bold and unconventional. But after being on target the last time they went against the grain, the Wiedemers merit being heard out.' --The Associated Press 'Surrounded as we are by growing talk of recovery and news about 'green shoots, ' it's still refreshing to consider the different perspective that Wiedemer, Wiedemer, and Spitzer offer here.' --Robert J. Hughes, 'SmartMoney' ''Aftershock' makes a compelling argument for a chilling conclusion. Their track record demands our attention.' --Sam Stovall, Chief Investment Strategist, Standard & Poor's 'The fragility of today's economy demands that we, as investors, allocate our assets with more prudence and focus than ever before. The authors' prescience in their first book lends credence to their new warnings. This book deserves our attention.' --Robert Friedman, former CFO, Goldman Sachs 'Their first book, 'America's Bubble Economy,' was one of those rare finds that not only predicted the subprime credit meltdown well in advance, it offered Main Street investors a winning strategy. Now they've done it again.' --Paul B. Farrell, JD, PhD, Senior Columnist, 'Dow Jones/MarketWatch'
