"In Profiting from the World's Economic Crisis, author Bud Conrad, Chief Economist for Casey Research, predicts a rough road ahead for us - due to economic imbalances that have built up over the past decade - but reveals how you can prosper during these difficult times by tracking global market trends and finding investment opportunities that match those trends." "With this book, Conrad outlines the long-term direction of our economy as driven by increasing U.S. government and trade deficits, oil prices, Social Security and Medicare obligations for baby boomers, the credit crisis, and the weakening dollar. He also examines why some of the government's actions - such as bailing out banks and curbing interest rates - fail to address more serious, long-term issues such as too much debt." "The crisis we have entered is not a typical business recession, but, instead, a major deleveraging which is the biggest shift since the Great Depression. The stagflation of the U.S. economy will present great challenges on a global scale. And since no market travels in a straight line, you need to be positioned correctly, with the right investments, to protect yourself and profit from the twists and turns you'll inevitably face in today's turbulent economic environment." "Profiting from the World's Economic Crisis deftly addresses how to gain your financial footing during these difficult times by highlighting global investment opportunities - such as gold, interest rates, currency, and commodities - that are likely to help you profit in the coming years."--BOOK JACKET.

Rereading this eight years after publication provides the strongest possible reminder not to believe any financial forecast, no matter how plausible. The author uses extensive data on all financial instruments and impeccable logic to predict increasing US inflation and relative devaluation of the dollar, along with the collapse of US oil production and high natural gas prices resulting in future reliance on coal and nuclear for power production. All in the “near future” from 2010.
The book gets a high rating for the detailed information provided, just use the predictions as a lesson that nobody ever gets the path of the economy and market right (except maybe George Soros).
